ASUS ROG RAIDR Express PCI-E 240GB PCIe 2.0 x 2 MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

1 out of 5 eggs DON'T Do it if you want SLI 12/31/2013

This review is from: ASUS ROG RAIDR Express PCI-E 240GB PCIe 2.0 x 2 MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast

Cons: Planned on using this as a boot drive for the OS and games. This drive stops your system from recognizing SLI. Confirmed by ASUS support, finally. ASUS tried to blame the EVGA drivers initially. Had to prove to them that the card was the only variable; that took a week. Now Newegg does not want to issue an RMA, since it is covered by the Manufacturer. Down the rabbit hole I go.

Battlefield 4 Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Mechanical PC Gaming Keyboard
  • Verified Owner

1 out of 5 eggs If you are into that sort of thing 12/31/2013

This review is from: Battlefield 4 Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Mechanical PC Gaming Keyboard

Pros: Backlit

Cons: Makes me feel like I am typing on an IBM-PC. So loud as to be distracting, and the type used for the backlit keyboard is so odd as to be confusing.

ASUS MAXIMUS VI FORMULA LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX gaming board with double-sided ROG Armor, 23C-degrees cooler CrossChill and 120dB SNR, 600ohm audio
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Pretty.

Cons: SLI DOES NOT WORK IN WIN 8.1. While SLI worked automatically in Win 7, there was no option to go to an SLI set up in Nvidia Control Panel in 8.1. EVGA had no answers, told me to ask ASUS. ASUS tech support promised to set up an identical rig to test my set up, but after a week, nothing, even after repeated calls and promised callbacks that never happened. So now I am the proud owner of a copy of Win 8.1 I cannot use, 16 GB (out of 32) memory that is not recognized by Windows 7 Home Premium. With buggy drivers or possibly bad power management (see note below), ASUS has effectively stolen $265-$550 from my pocket. Unclear/non-existent how-to notes in their "User Guide" have cost me 50-100 hours trying to figure this out.

Other Thoughts: I had a ROG RAIDR PCI SSD installed for the boot drive with the original windows install. Simply pulled it for the Windows 7 install. Since that is another variable, it may/ may not have something to do with the Win 8.1 issues with SLI. The UEFI boot option of this drive makes it unrecognizable, and interferes with the loading of the EVGA cards, so I suspect there is something else going on.
