Pros: This MoBo is loaded with features! It's an overclocker's dream. Aesthetically speaking, it is very pleasing to the eye. The red and black colors of the board, along with the red LED light trims, go well together to make the board look very attractive. Out of the numerous MoBo's I've bought over the years, this one looks the coolest, hands down. I love the on-board Power button. Looks awesome and is also an awesome feature. The on-board Reset button is also very nice and convenient. The fast-boot switch is just plain awesome too. Very useful. The UEFI configuration is very powerful, as I indicated above. There are loads of options for OC'ing, but it defaults everything for you also should you not want to mess with OC'ing. The only thing I had to tweak in the UEFI was my RAM speed (no surprise here though). It defaulted to 1600, so I had to bump it up to 2133 for my gskill ripjaws.
Cons: None right now. This was the easiest MoBo that I've ever installed!
Other Thoughts: Unless you're a super guru at this thing, read the instruction manual first. I don't do this every day, but I've done it enough in the past, and that along with the excellent instruction manual, made it fairly simple to get this MoBo up and running. Also, wear an anti-static wrist strap and don't forget to attach it to your case! GL!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cooler Master Sleeve Bearing 140mm Silent Fan for Computer Cases and Radiators
Pros: Piece of cake to install. Came with 4 case mounting screws (silver color). Three-pin prong for easy connecting to MB. Also came with an adapter for the larger and older 4 prong plugs. Works great!
Other Thoughts: Must.... buy... more... computer parts!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It's fast, just like you think it is. The physical design of the card is awesome. My benchmark scores went up a lot. :)
Cons: Very long card
Other Thoughts: Do your research and make sure it will fit inside your case. I thought I knew the dimensions prior to buying it, but I must have been wrong because the card barely fits. I have maybe half an inch between it and my HDD mount.
