Pros: Everything is smooth sailing. Clockings are very good.
Easy to setup and adjust.
Cons: I asked a question about getting it to see a gtx 760. First uninstall intel hd graphics if you installed it.
Every time i disabled the integrated graphics the card would not work. I could not see anything but black and could never tell if it even booted into windows. I called the GA tech and this is how it worked out.
There is a setting for the initial display. Set it to IGFX and leave the integrated graphics on. Boot in. Go to device manager and the card will appear. Install the driver.
Go back into bios and disable integrated. Save it and go back into windows. Worked great for me.
Thank you GA for a very nice board for the buck. Newegg, always nice dealing with you. This setup just plays with my intensive programs like a toy. My old system would sometimes lag. Extremely happy.
Pros: Clocks to 2400 as stated. On a z87x needed to manually set volts 1.5 to 1.65 and multiple to 2400 from 1600. For some reason the xmp profile will not do it. Not a big deal.
Prime passed everything. Price is hard to beat for the clocking of 10 11 11 31.
Cons: None yet. Can't rate 5 stars. Longevity has not been determined.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Not familiar with the uefi bios, but I like some of the new features. Updated to 1.1 from the desktop and it booted itself into bios. I must be having a good year since my 4770k is running at 4.2 at 1.6v all cores fixed. Dram on xmp 1.6v and all on air. Temps are 80f for cpu. Not going to push anything.
Always let things have a break-in period. If, I can come back to update this I will later. Hard for me to rate anything 5 star since longevity is always to be determined.
Note: This is not my first rodeo. Many builds before this.
Cons: None yet. Only the chasis fan can't be seen, but it is spinning. Tried chas 1 & 2, but nothing. It's on a 3 pin with a red and black wire only.READ FULL REVIEW
