Pros: Beautiful Colors, while it lasted
Cons: Monitor Died Shortly out of warranty period, similar to all other reports of failure here my left hand side of the screen began to show discoloration as well as heavy pixelation shortly outside of the warranty period. Unfortunately even though this is a known issue HP has not and will not likely issue a recall. This was 280 dollars when purchased new, and now feels like a wasted investment. I wouldn't suggest this, or any HP monitors.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS Z87-DELUXE LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Primary Features work as intended, and AI Suite 3 has a large amount of useful features such as overclocking via the software.
Wireless AC on board is a nice touch, especially as it can be used as a router.
Cons: I've been having an ongoing issue with my Bios Clock freezing up on this motherboard, roughly every two weeks it happens where I am forced to reset the CMOS in order to maintain the correct date and time on my computer. It may seem as if it's a minor inconvenience, however when it begins to impact all time and date stamps it does cause an issue.
I began my attempts at working with Asus tech support in hopes to resolve this issue that is documented online by multiple people. At first they appeared to be helpful, but we had already reset the CMOS. Flashed the newest BIOS and completed all steps outlined in their troubleshooting steps and the issue kept recurring.
At this time I requested an escalation as it appeared to be a software issue, it's currently been 6 days since I opened the ticket, and each time when I call back they suggest I reset the CMOS and that it is the only repair they currently have. I had reached out 5 days after my original ticket creation, which is when they had promised a reply by their level two technicians, and I had received nothing. The technician on the line suggested I reset the CMOS again. Later I was informed that I may never receive a reply from tier 2, and that the escalations in no way guarantee any response.
Other Thoughts: After my experience with Asus customer support I doubt I'll be returning to their product line. I've heard nothing but excuses regarding this product that has known issues impacting multiple people. My only suggestions to you, as the consumer is stay away from this motherboard as it appears there is a software glitch that Asus is unwilling to resolve.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: So far it's ran every game maxed out settings, from planetside 2, to Assassin's creed to World of Warcraft. Popped right in worked perfectly. I really like the casing for this card, as it doesn't feel as cheap as some other cards. Blower style, no coil whine.
Cons: Where is my sticker MSI?
Thing gets loud, and I mean LOUD once you pass 55 C, but other than that it runs extremely cool.
Other Thoughts: Rig.
