ASUS GeForce GTX 690 DirectX 11 GTX690-4GD5 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It does everything people say on here, and then some more.

Cons: Driver stability. Nvida seems to be releasing new revs to the driver on a nightly basis and was dumb enough to keep updating, till I got to a point that I would get random BSOD when playing a game or watching a movie.
Re-installed Windows 8, never updated beyond the WHQL driver that MS installs and it has never crashed since.

Other Thoughts: I have to knock an egg off till Nvidia get's their act together and stabilizes the reference drivers. I am sure as hell not going to put any Asus ware on my build.

1 out of 5 eggs Review after 6 months of usage 04/08/2013

This review is from: RAZER Black Wired BlackWidow Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Pros: Was good while it lasted - The C key is now broken, it sometimes does not respond, other times it inserts several C's. Some of the other keys are starting to do the same as well intermittently.

Tried to find Razor support and it does not exist. No phone number or anything. You have to join a forum in order to get support and their RMA process is so secret that I cant find anything about it.

Cons: Will have to throw this out, and get another keyboard. Razor is off my list of vendors I will do business with.

Intel BOXDX79SR LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

1 out of 5 eggs Had this board for over 5 months 03/30/2013

This review is from: Intel BOXDX79SR LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Supports 64GB
Relatively easy to set up
I have it working with the GTX 690 so not having the video card issues that many on this board are having.

Cons: Nothing but blue screens every 24 hours using the on-board Intel RAID with the RSTe drivers on SSD.
Used the server version of the RAID driver and it works better, but get the occasional blue screen still. Loose TRIM support on those.
Windows 8 drivers where spotty well into the MS release of Win 8. You would think Intel would have seen that OS coming.
No eSATA port
Nothing but issues with the on board SATA ports when using SSD's.

Other Thoughts: All said, I would have taken my chances with another board knowing what I know now about this board.
