Pros: Board was well laid out and BIOS was was easy to navigate, plenty of SATA ports
Cons: Board only has one connector for a fan and for most that will be used for the CPU fan. Really? no other connector not even for a 1 case fan? That is a big miss for me. Upon first boot it had a CMOS failure error, I powered off, then powered on, still CMOS error. Went into BIOS and had to set board to default settings and everything works fine now.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The board is solid and fast, everything is laid out as well as I needed it to be with the Antec ISK 110 case.
Cons: The board only has 1 usb header, but even the small case that I purchased, the Antec ISK 110, had 2 usb connections to it, so basically 2 of the front USB ports were unusable. I built 12 of these for a business and having to tell them that 2 of the front USB ports do not work, was a bit embarrassing, but once they saw the performance of it, all was forgotten.
Other Thoughts: Built 12 system with:
Antec ISK 110
Intel Core i3 and stock cooler/fan
4GB G.Skill DDR3 1600
PNY XLR8 Pro SSD
Pros: System was heavy and felt very sturdy. Print quality was on par with other laser printers for both black and color. Printer was pretty quiet compared to the last HP Laser Jet, which lasted almost 20 years! I hope to get the same run out of this printer.
Cons: Physical setup was a breeze except for the network portion of it. The navigation buttons and screen do not have an option to manual set the IP address for the unit. This made things difficult because we have DHCP turned off on the network and we have a specific range to use for printers. We decided to use the cd and run the installation and it uses an auto discovery based on MAC/printer name. Once found, installed and configured ok after that. This is why the 1 egg deduction for the printer.READ FULL REVIEW
