This review is from: ASUS Z170-P D3 LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Solid construction, LOW price for an 1151, compatible with DDR3! Runs low temp even after OC and a middle end heatsink/fan,
Cons: Doesnt support
Other Thoughts: Easy to set up, easy to use the tools included. Runs great, OC'd my 6600K to 4.3 ghz, used a Coolmaster H4 and never see the CPU go over 30C, and seldom see 29C on the mobo.
This board is fantastic if you have a bunch of newer DDR3 ram, since its one of the few 1151's out there that will support such....and currently upgrading to DDR4 gives very little benefit other than bragging rights (no significant speed increase on current systems and programs)....the bulk of the benefits from DDR4 will be seen after other tech catches up a bit, and as the DDR4 platform improves.
All in all, this is a fantastic choice for building a Skylake system.
Pros: Amazing graphics. Super fast, high benchmarks. Fan is quiet, card stays cool even under load. In some of the most graphics intensive games/apps around it performs flawlessly. Highly recommended!!
Cons: This thing is HUGE. Make sure you have plenty of case room. Also make sure your PSU is up to the task of powering this thing.....had to upgrade mine (550 W just wasnt hacking it).READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very easy to use, easy to click and change DPI on the fly for different tasks. Spot on pointing for fine graphic work. I like how you can tell what mode its in by the color of the accent lights. UI is easy to use and powerful.
Cons: None yet.READ FULL REVIEW
