This review is from: ASUS P8Z77 WS LGA 1155 Intel Z77 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: This makes my 3rd ASUS board in a row, all still working.
The board looks fantastic and has options galore. It seems of better quality than the normal Z77 boards, more metal screws and fasteners instead of plastic push thru ones.
I personally enjoy the ASUS bios.
Cons: I had to buy one of the most expensive boards in the product line in order to get what I wanted with a PS2 port. I'm using an old mechanical keyboard and don't have USB as an option. Board is still great though.
Other Thoughts: I have a 3570k overclocked to 4.4 on a corsair H110 in this machine. It's been rock solid for over a month now. Voltage 1.175 under full load and less than 1 at idle. Using -15 offset. Temps peek about 70-72c. Pretty happy with the setup.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It's unlocked and pretty quick out of the box.
Cons: You shouldn't have to delid an "unlocked" CPU to receive proper heat transfer from the die to heat spreader. I understand the possible cost savings on non-unlocked CPU's but feel they should have gone the better route with the "K" series.
Other Thoughts: The heat isn't THAT bad, it's just knowing that it COULD have been better that bugs me. Maybe next time I guess..READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Well built, nearly silent operation, pretty decent cables, and a great warranty results in a great power supply.
Cons: Nothing, snagged the MIR/promo code offer and got this for a great price.
Other Thoughts: The 4 machines I use daily have Shuttle, Antec, Corsair (it's one of the HX750's that were made by SeaSonic), and now this actual SeaSonic and none of them have given me a single bit of trouble. The Antec and Shuttle are both 11 years old now too (old p4 systems). So I have high expectations for this SS-860XP2.READ FULL REVIEW
