Pros: Installation is simple and fast.
Software included is comprehensive, and easy to use.
Reception is great using the 2.4ghz chanel
Works as intended; 2 in 1 wireless to power all of your devices, including gaming consoles and streaming devices. Docsis 3.0 will be compatible with future ISP speeds.
Cons: 5 ghz channel (See other thoughts)
Other Thoughts: Not sure why, but the signal strength is is 3/5 bars 10 feet away from the unit. I'm not sure if there is some kind of interference where I am, or if I need to change the 5ghz channel. Other than that, the unit is flawless. Having weak signal strength ten feet away from the unit is enough to doc one egg.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS Z97-A LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
On Board Sound Quality
Other Thoughts: This board is outstanding. Completely stable while overclocking - 5 way optimization is a very cool feature also. This board has everything you need, and nothing you don't. The software included is definitely an upgrade from Z87-A. Also, it differs from the Z87 - A because it actually has all 9 screw mounts for an Mid ATX board (up from 5). The UEFI has been completely re-designed, and really looks nice, (all black). The new UEFI is extremely dumbed down, however. Hardcore enthusiasts might not like how Barney style it is. Other than that, the board is flawless. As always, Asus delivers a motherboard at an attractive price point, and has features that you would expect at a lot higher price.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very high level of performance (60 fps @ 1080p all triple A titles) *vsync 60hz monitor.
Overclock ability is second to none
Asus's GPU Tweak software is amazing
Outstanding thermal performance
Very, very quiet.
Other Thoughts: I'm extremely impressed with this GPU. I have ran synthetic benchmarks, as well as ran through multiple gaming titles (BF4, Bioshock, WoW, Skyrim), and this gpu is a beast. Scoring a 7.3k score on Firestrike 3D Mark at stock speeds is really unheard of. *paired with 4670k @ stock*. This GPU outperformed my 7870's in crossfire in 3D Mark - Firestrike! At first, I thought that it was an error; then I ran tests again. A single GTX770 outperformed x2 7870's at stock speeds? Just wow. This is the best single gpu as far as price/performance is concerned. As far as comparing them with other vendors/reference models, I find Linus's comparison a good one. In addition, this card overclocked to nearly 1.3ghz...and was stable in open gl applications and 3D Mark. I've never overclocked any card that far before. This card is definitely a good investment; you will not be disappointed.READ FULL REVIEW
