ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Bought it 4/21/2012 still running
-every time I open up the case to dust off it has virtually no dust on any of its components, the armor does a great job.
-Easy to use and setup, for those new to overclocking or just lazy the presets are easy to use.
-Looks sweet
-the little fans under the armor create great airflow to sections that otherwise get very little.

Cons: -Fan control could use improvement. My CPU (heat-sink with duel fans) will warn it's not running fast enough when booting unless it's disabled so you can't use the warning system of a failed fan and have fans adjust to load. I feel the bios should know "hey fans are slow due to low temp, I better not pause boot up"
-Preset profile for overclocking causes random BSOD, from gaming or just browsing. Might be other components, just have to tweak a bit.

Other Thoughts: It's a late review but time tested this mobo and it passed, going back I'd buy it again.
I'm building a new system and would love to get the current generation except that the price is just a bit steep and no good combo's.

Dell Venue 8  - Intel Atom Z2580 Dual Core 2GB RAM 32GB Flash 8.0
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast, responsive, feels like a solid product.

Cons: The battery died, it didn't charge overnight. Tested with 2 known working chargers, different outlets, and car charger. Stayed at 0% battery and refused to power up. Finally get it to power on and the screen now has a bunch of lines in it on the right hand side (about an inch wide of lines) going vertical and a bunch on the bottom going diagonal (about .1.2 inches tall). I've bought it as a Christmas present and it breaks shortly after the 30 day return... not pleased

Other Thoughts: Also had issues with when skyping, sound was horrible and the video was worse than an iphone 4. Not sure if it was the tablet fault or settings though, I never actually did any troubleshooting and can't classify this as a con because of that.
