ASRock Fatal1ty X99 Professional/3.1 LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: This is my second build using the X99 Professional/3.1. Both boards running flawlessly. Running a Samsung SM951 in both boards and a 5960X in one and a 5930 in the other. Running 32GB memory at 2666 with 13-14-14-31 timing. The OC socket improves memory overclocking. Not sure why a couple reviewers are having so many problems.Maybe lack of knowlege and/or experience. Great Motherboard.

Cons: AsRock should have added the additional USB 3.1 ports from the expansion board to the motherboard. I am not using the expansion board at all. Just adds cost to the complete package.

SAPPHIRE Radeon R9 290X DirectX 12 100361-4L 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Tri-X OC(UEFI) Video Card, New Edition

Pros: All of the reviews are correct. I purchased two for 299.99 each. I have owned a few different brands (290x) over the past year and this has been one of the best. Great Price and excellent card. I have two in crossfire running on a X99 Motherboard. Running crossfire is harder to overclock due to the higher temps the top card will experience. With afterburner set to +81mV on core my overclock is 1150Mhz on the core and 1500Mhz (6000Mhz Eff.) on the memory. That's both cards! Temps are good and never throttle down even running Valley benchmark and Far Cry 4 @ 4K Ultra settings. The memory and VRM's also have heat sinks.
Also, this card had a redesign. Sapphire added two more power phases. Also went to two 8 pin PCIe power connectors.
You cant go wrong with this 290x!

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: Wished it had a back plate.
Black PCB is a positive.
