ASUS ROG MAXIMUS VII IMPACT LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Gaming Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: - Solid construction
- Feature rich
- Great that the back of the CPU is kept to a low profile to fit just about any cooler bracket you'd want
- BIOS layout is awesome and contains helpful hints/easy to use

Cons: - Daughter board might get in the way of installing certain top fans/radiators. See other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: Put this in an Obsidian 250D with a Hydro H50 cooler. There was BARELY room for it with the daughter board getting in the way a bit, but it fit so no complaints :)

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-8GBXL
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - None. Ram failed.

Cons: - One of my two sticks was causing me bluescreens

Other Thoughts: Verified I had a bad stick causing my machine to bluescreen randomly with memtest (failed horribly with tons of errors as soon as the test began). I'm surprised this made it through quality control. Pretty dissapointed and will not be buying G.SKILL for a while.

ASUS Z87-WS LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

4 out of 5 eggs Not practical for air cooled multi graphics cards 01/27/2014

This review is from: ASUS Z87-WS LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: - Great quality, feels sturdy
- No issues to report, worked great out of the box
- Lots of features, tons of room for expansion

Cons: - The PCI Express slots are too close together to fit many dual slot cards at all.. and the ones that do fit are too close together for any reasonable cooling performance

Other Thoughts: If you're going to do dual slot cards, make sure that they do not have a backplate that sticks out too much, otherwise they simply will not fit at all. Even if you can get dual slot cards in here, just be sure they are water cooled. It's impossible to cool them on air effectively. Single slot cards would perform much better on air here.
