Pros: Great board once I gotten it to work and all.
Cons: Had loads of issue from the start since first MB was bad and it cooked the processor. I sent back for RMA and my second board I had was sent back to after ASUS techs said it was bad. I got 3RD MB and having same issue as 2ND one so said it can't be another MB.
So I had local it tech help me and in the end we figure out CPU so I was like no not another long RMA wait to get this build a working. Once the new CPU came it worked fine on test and has been working ever since. In the end my Second MB was fine most likely good and all do to not knowing it was the CPU was bad.
Now I'm ready for fallout 4.
Other Thoughts: Great tech support I had gotten from Asus so give them a great score expect for 1 minor issue with one of lady tech on the phone with second MB issues. She said that Rosewill RBR1000-M - BRONZE Series was not enough power to power my system. 1000 watts was little overkill I could of gotten by with 950 watts easy and still have room to grow
After that phone call couldn't stop laughing since I gotten that PSU to have enough room if I wanted to get a second MSI 980TI gaming 6 video card in the future to go SLI and still have room to grow..
Rest of the techs I talked to was great to work with from ASUS.
Pros: Great processor for overclocking. Plus now I can play the newer games since my old PC with Q6600 from intel just died in august after 8 years of use.
Cons: No cons since chip works great. But I gave 4 star due to first MB Asus Maximus VIII hero cooked the processor on the test fire up.READ FULL REVIEW
