This review is from: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit
Pros: well, nice to still be able to get this. Gonna wait til windows 9 to upgrade.
it works as intended (by microsoft anyway..lol)
Cons: 1- its windows. sigh. How I wish adobe and other software programs I use would support linux. Make life easier.
2- the 1.300 updates needed to bring it up to speed after install literally took FOREVER.
This review is from: ASUS Sabertooth X79 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: was easy to add to my case and it worked fairly well
been running it at our business and I have now bought one for myself.
A lot of options for the experienced overclocker and such...but documentation light on learning what it all does..
Cons: 1- the sata cables were half l shaped and half not...cost me a drive when transporting it to the new location as the case has the drive ends pointing to the case side...a slight jostle broke the sata piece off the drive killing it and the cable. Been nicer to have most L shaped on one side.
2- the backplate is not cut properly and cannot be used. It fits perfectly except for the audio. So I had to decide to cut the audio part out or just not use it at all. Really lame. They must have changed the audio spacing or something and never updated the backplate.
3- the two proprietary fans scare me as replacing them will be a super big hassle. Almost feel like I have to buy them from asus immediately, just in case.
4- the front usb 3.0 connection is incredibly loose. Just touching the cable and it pops out. Not sure if it is the case cable or the connector that has the issue. But my second cable I bought does the same thing.
Other Thoughts: seems okay, lets hope it works for years to come.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It was not too bad to put the motherboard and stuff in it.
usb 3.0 front of case, what else can you say.
Cons: As usual, gotta give minus one egg for worst instructions ever. But this is usual for ALL case manufacturers.
It is not clear in description, but there is a cable included to connect the USB 3.0 for front of case. Even their support could not properly answer that...so now I have an extra cable I ordered with it lying around for no reason.
The side panels are not very solid, so laying it on its side could cause issues with drives/sata connections. Be very careful. I lost my OS drive due to that.
Other Thoughts: not too bad. Wish the drive bays were facing back to front instead of side to side..other than that, not bad.
Wish they had other front end options like a sd card reader and all that.
