Pros: There is a LOT crammed onto this board.
Drivers worked fine for me, idk what others are getting problems with that for.
Cons: not much room for a decent low profile cooler (expected being a mini ITX..
I had an issue with my processor temps on this board, something i haven't run into before and couldn't find any info on.
Once up an running with windows installed and a few games installed, i started running some benchmarks, but before i started, i checked temps. Everything was good except for the core temps. they were all settled around 5C, which definitely doesn't make sense seeing as the ambient temp was around 25C. No support from ASUS of course because the rep i talked to on the phone couldn't hardly speak english, and once i was forwarded to someone that could, they said they've never seen that before and couldn't help.
BIOS shows the CPU settling around 45-50C after about 30 minutes so it's not the processor. maybe a windows issue? not sure...
either way, for lack of support from asus, i take an egg.
Other Thoughts: The build plays Crysis 2 at 45-50fps maxed out no problem, Skyrim pulls 60fps full time on ultra...

This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9500 AT 2 Ball CPU Cooling Fan/Heatsink
Pros: This is easily a $100 cooler.
- With an i7-2600k overclocked to 4.75 GHz I'm only reaching 74c under Prime95, idle around 30c (before thermal paste set-in time).
- Very quiet.
- All copper design
-Clears the ram slots on my P8Z68-M Pro by about 4 MM (I have high profile Corsair Vengeance ram sticks).
- 4 pin PWM fan connector (no need for a controller with my mobo).
- Fits easily in my IN-WIN Dragon Slayer case.
- Installation (including removing my previous heatsink and backplate) took 5 minutes.
Cons: Fins are sharp and easily bent, but if you are careful this shouldn't be a problem.
None other than that.
Other Thoughts: I purchased this cooler with Arctic Silver 5, i didn't use the included paste.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: SFF Case, good for a simple build, but hard to fit anything
Cons: Not very durable, screws strip out easily, front mesh is very fragile, and MB tray is flimsy.
Other Thoughts: I wouldn't use this case for a gaming build for sure.
If you plan on doing a nice build, and want a cube case, i would look into a different case because IMO this case is not worth it for a quality build, especially for 100 dollars
