Pros: For the most part I like the layout; and with only a couple exceptions; works as advertised. Decent quality for a decent price.
Cons: Both VGA and DVI ports non functioning out of the box, seems im not the only one with this issue. However, I had an old video card on hand, and am using this for a headless server - so no great loss to me. (I did expect better from ASUS though these things do happen..)
Other Thoughts: ASUS has always been my trusted name for motherboards, it should be noted that this is the first product from ASUS in my many years I have ever had an issue with.
Also, the 4pin 12v is at the very top of the board, so bare this in mind if using a bottom mounted PSU.
This review is from: Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 with Window Side Panel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: - Quiet as a whisper, even with the three installed fans running
- quality construction; not flimsy
- versatile drive cage, with holes for 2.5 and 3.5" drives
- plenty of screws, ties, and accessories
- sleek, yet not gaudy
Cons: - seems to be a dust magnet, no big deal if you keep your AO clean
- front header cables (usb, power, etc) could be a bit longer
Other Thoughts: Ive done my fair share of builds; never bought a fractal case before.......I am very impressed and will definitely put this brand on my very short list of trusted brands. Should the situation change as length of time owned increases, I will update.READ FULL REVIEW
