Pros: BIOS FLASH VERY EASY TO USE
EKWB water blocks preinstalled to keep VRMs cooled, all you need is the tubing and fittings to add to your system!!
Cons: Non yet...
Overall Review: I purchased this board to upgrade a Rampage V Edition 10 running a Core i7-5960X to an AMD Ryzen 9 5950X with 64GB of G.Skill 3600 GHz DDR4 RAM.
The swap was easier than I expected and my Windows 10 Pro x64 v21H1 booted right ip without any issues at all.
It has been the smoothest upgrade I have ever done in almost 40 years of building personal computers.
I would recommend this board to anyone who is looking to make the most out any compatible AMD CPU.
Pros: Works out of the box after connecting battery.
Cons: Battery died after 8 months of use and APC is giving me the run around.
Overall Review: I have used APC products for over 30 years without ANY PROBLEMS until now. Why is APC having problems now ? Are they having QC issues? Battery supplier issues? Something has changed for all of a sudden their products are not holding up within the warranty period and APC is being reluctant to honor their warranty. I need a replacement battery pack now and I need it ASAP.
Pros: As fast as USB 3.0 is... Power Adapter is great for running USB3.0 drives.
Cons: None yet.
Comments: I bought this to solve a cooling problem with my P4 Prescott 3.20E.
No matter whet I did, I could never keep the temperature under 70C.
I even tried using e pure copper Zalman CPU Cooler.
All the Zalman ever did was collect all of the dust in the case.
Now with the Hyper 48, while running Folding@Home and MSN Explorer, the temperature never goes higher than 60C!
At idle the temperture drops to 48C!
This cooler is simply AMAZING!
