Overall Review: Great case with decent room and looks awesome.
Cons: Everything else; most malignantly is the design of the side bar making it a PITA to do anything inside the case.
Overall Review: Do not buy
Cons: Does not even fit 3.5 in drive bays as advertised; internal bays are too small.
Overall Review: Waste of your money, better cases out there.
-You can put parts in it and they will run
Cons: -Awful, horrible quality
-Side panel will not even seal properly
Overall Review: Absolutely do not buy this case, it is trash.
-good stock cooler
Cons: -Vega graphics do not work at all; despite being on a 450 series board
-After several attempts I had to resort to using a 780Ti to get a display signal
-Updating W10 and uninstalling nvidia drivers did not work
-Attempting to reinstall AMD drivers after uninstalling nvidia drivers resulted in error 99 for unsigned drivers
-AMD instructions to circumvent the error by disabling driver certification was worthless; got the same error
-Worst supported processor I have seen in 20 years of dealing with pc hardware; never had an issue of this frustrating magnitude from intel CPUs
Overall Review: Go with an intel CPU with integrated graphics instead and a GTX 1050; the cheaper 2200G is not worth it because AMD does not support their own product. Never buying another AMD product again, CPU or otherwise.
Pros: Excellent card, runs games at ultra settings at playable frames @1080p/1440p and even some at 3200x1800 VSR. I've got it paired with an i5 4440 and power draw for the whole system is ~450W max. Card runs much cooler than I expected under load; 76C is the max temp I've seen. Product is great, nice backplate as well. Fit inside my travel rig which is a Corsair 380T case with no issues.
Overall Review: I would highly recommend this card, I know it's clocked slightly lower, but you can't really tell the difference. Gives near Fury (non-X) performance and has great cooling even in a confined case like the 380T.
Pros: Absolutely great 1080p monitor, the colors are vibrant and it works as advertised.
Cons: Wish the bezels were thinner.
Pros: looks nice
Cons: Horrible cooling, 4770K hits 75C at stock settings (and yes I reinstalled/ reapplied thermal paste several times)
Overall Review: Buy something else.
Pros: Awesome MicroATX board, tested on 4770K and GTX 780 and G3220 and R7 250X.
Cons: I don't like the side facing SATA ports, makes fitting GPUs difficult.
Pros: Cheapish price for a high end case, decent room.
Cons: Cheap build quality, very poor.
Overall Review: Do yourself a favor and buy a quality case, I bought a Cosmos II for my other build and the quality was sooooo much better.
Cons: Fried 3 drives, 2 PSUs, and 1 GPU. Confirmed by replacing with Asus Maximus Formula motherboard. What a terrible product.
Overall Review: Stay away from this board.
Pros: One that works is great, had a another one that was DOA
Pros: Beats the pants off the H80i cooling my 4770K, max temp on my 5930K at 4.2Ghz is 70C.
Cons: A bit hard to fit in Cosmos II case.
Pros: Works as advertised
Cons: DOA on first drive.
Pros: Works as advertised.
Pros: Put this in a buddy's build and it works great for home workloads and gaming on medium settings with an R7 250X.
Pros: Doesn't have power problems like my MSI Z87 G45 did, lots of features, looks great.
Pros: Works as advertised (looking at you ROG RAIDR).
Pros: So I'm giving 3 stars because the first drive was DOA, other one works great.
Cons: Not SSD speed, but much better than 7200RPM
Cons: Not much of an improvement gaming wise over my i7 960 @4.1Ghz or my 4770K at stock.
Overall Review: I wanted 6 core for future work, but if you're gaming save the money and go with the 5820K
Pros: Does what it is supposed to, simple to use.
Cons: In a PCIE 3.0 slot it runs about 100 MB/s slower than advertised, in PCIE 2.0 it runs 178 MB/s slower than advertised. Even advertised speeds are slow for a PCIE SSD, but this is just ridiculous, you're almost better off just getting a regular SSD.
Overall Review: Don't buy this.
Pros: Great looking board, lots of features.
Cons: 48GB of RAM or 64GB of RAM keep the computer from booting, RAM sticks are all good. Overclocking with this is a nightmare as it constantly turns turbo-boost back on when you make any change in the bios. PCIE slots need more space between them, can't fit RAIDR in red slot as it will block fans on my 780Tis. Boot times take forever (52 seconds off of ROG RAIDR) even with fast boot/turning off extra garbage in bios. My 4770K boots in 36 seconds.
Overall Review: Frankly this board has been a nightmare, but hey at least my computer turns on with 32GB of RAM, too bad I wasted $1060 on 64GB for no reason since this board can't handle it (for me anyway). If I had know how horrible this thing was I would have gotten a cheaper board. Very disappointing.
Pros: It works at advertised speed and higher (4.4Ghz in my case).
1150 socket lets me have SATA III.
Cons: No discernible leap in performance from my i7 firstname.lastname@example.orgGhz (vintage 2010 processor).
Overall Review: I got the 4770K because I needed to upgrade to SATA III and I needed hyperthreading. If you are just going to be gaming with regular computer stuff then save yourself money and get a 3570K or a 4670K.
