ASUS MAXIMUS VI IMPACT LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs ASUS wake up quality control please 07/16/2014

This review is from: ASUS MAXIMUS VI IMPACT LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Awesome looks in a small package

Cons: Board started out by not wanted to reset/restart had to hold down power button every time to turn off then turn back on.
I proceeded with install of Windows 8.1 64-bit everything went smooth other then after installing updates still would not reset/start. (Note updated to current 1505 BIOS before this problem)
After one day of use board would not turn back on just keeps going in a loop 5 secs then shuts down then restarts over and over etc..
Also spent allot of money a BitsPower waterblock for the board and memory hope it's not a waste of money.

Other Thoughts: Tried the following before setting up a RMA with ASUS
Installed newest BIOS 1505
Installed 4790K at first then board would not restart after one day tried my 4770k same problem
Installed two sets of memory from different manufactures
Tried three different PSU

This will be my first RMA from a motherboard since I've been building computers for the past 10 years. So I am not to mad just a little disappointed with ASUS quality control because I've been seeing allot of people with the same problems. I also think ASUS is started way to many different motherboards now when they should concentrate on the old setups. And I kinda feel the ROG brand is starting the lose it's value and hype.
I will update after RMA

ASUS VG248QE Black 24
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Below are the Pros of this monitor with G-Sync kit installed

No Input lag keyboard(Corsair K95) Mouse (Razer Mamba Elite 2012 wireless)
BF4 setting on ULTRA
No Screen Tearing
No Lag
Super Smooth game play
Very easy to stay on targets with any gun
High frame game play @ 144Hz or lower in BF4
Even if frames start to go really low in the 50-60's no problems just super smooth all the time.
The G-Sync kit only took 30-minutes or less to install and was very easy.

Cons: G-Sync sometimes does not like SLI with some games (driver updates will fix this problem)
If your frames go above 144Hz games start to stutter (have to set a registry hack to not make frames NOT to go above 144/Hz)

Other Thoughts: Running the following below with some games not liking SLI with G-SYNC then I disable it and only use one card. In BF4 I run SLI and have to set the registry for the game not to go over 144 frames (144Hz) because it will make G-SYNC start to stutter so I set it to 140 frames (max) and my G-SYNC to 144Hz 1920x1080 with no problems now. Just super super smooth game play I really think this is a HUGE improvement over V-SYNC total game changer and it really works. Before buying this monitor a month ago I was using the ASUS VG278HE 27" 2ms with TOASTY's strobelight hack and it was very nice then but not as good as the G-SYNC setup. I can't wait for the Asus ROG Swift to come out 2560x1440p @ 144Hz with G-SYNC = Ultimate gaming monitor
Intel 4770K 4.5GHz
Gigabyte Sniper M5
2 x eVGA GTX 780 Classifieds @ 1300 core 3200 memory
Team Xtreem 16GB 2666MHz cas 11
Corsair 1200i
All on water 2 x 420 radiators

Battlefield 4 PC Game
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs BF4 = Overated and cartoonish looking graphics 11/12/2013

This review is from: Battlefield 4 PC Game

Pros: None

Cons: 1. Over powered boats that take over the game
2. Spawning is bad sets up for other team to rack up on kills
3. Game does not look realistic like BF3 did more cartoonish to me everything on the highest settings.
4. All starting weapons are junk and can not kill one guy next to you unless you use a whole clip.

Other Thoughts: I was looking forward when this game came out paid $120 for the set and I found myself just getting frustrated on the graphics and overall game play. Coming from BF3 which looks about 110% better graphics and game play I must say this was a huge mistake on buying this game. I uninstalled it from my computer and hope to sell it if I can I bought the digital copy.

4770K @ 4.8GHz
2 x eVGA 780 GTX Classified @ 1300 watercooled
3 x Asus 24" 144Hz monitors
G Skill 3000MHz 16GB
My FPS were around 150
