Pros: Great legacy support vPro, PS/2 Mouse, PS2 Keyboard, 2 Com, 1 LPT, etc.
6 SATA III ports (6Gbps)
TCM built in AWESOME!
Cons: SATA placement intentionally under both video card slots.
Only crossfire support.
Overall I highly recommend this solid board.
Other Thoughts: First, people need to understand these Q series motherboard are for offices and designed for backward compatibility for old office equipment that is very expensive to replace and need to stay in place. The legacy chipset will allow old operating systems to run on this board without loading drivers as they're built-in in most cases.
My workstation gaming rig didn't support SLI so I tried to use this board until I got a replacement. Unfortunately this board doesn't support SLI, but it does support CFX (crossfire). Why no nvidia love?
also, both video cards blocked a pair of SATA ports. ASUS went to the trouble to put 3 pairs of SATA ports on the board, why under the video slots? There is seemingly plenty of room to move them to a better place, or do as others have suggested and turn the connectors pointing toward the front edge.
To the guy who has two boards burn up. They sound like operator errors. 2 bad boards are too rare and usually incompatibility with parts issues. but 2 boards that burn up are too likely installation error.
To the guy with no VT-d. This board does support VT-d, but your processor needs to support VT-d as well. Check your CPU and leave a bad review for Intel for not having VT-d support for all of their chip series like AMD does.
This review is from: PNY Optima SSD7SC240GOPT-RB 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
reliable so far.
Fast rebate turnaround times.
Cons: Had to fill out rebates :(.
Other Thoughts: Very nice SSDs. I bought 3 of them for $90 each after rbate.
Rebate took a little over a month. I order June 27 and got my rebate last week.
A++ for rebate service.
This review is from: Symantec Norton 360 - 2014 - 3 PCs
Pros: Does a very good job and all around I recommend.
Cons: two things,
1) They don't scan for PUPs or PUMs and they clog your system
2) If you enter a new key before the subscription is fully expired, they steal your time from your subscription.
Other Thoughts: I had updated my subscription a month early as it notified me it was about to expire. Then when it was done it said I had 365 days left on my subscription.
I've done this for others recently and they experienced the same thing.
This is very shady from such a reputable company. If I pay for a year, then pay for another year, I should get my whole amount of time. Not being shorted every time I update my subscription.
