Pros: It shines!
Cons: none so far
Pros: all white. The outlook is great and fits other colors.
A lot of case fan pins on motherboard
other typical B360 ATX motherboard features...
Cons: Only one M.2 spot and I think it shares a channel with another SATA spot(the instruction menu says you can only use one of 2 spots at the same time)
Overall Review: I make a custom D.Va desktop for my girlfriend using this motherboard and she loves it.
NZXT S340i white case with custom paint, Coolermaster UFO shape cooler, 1070 FE and this motherboard.
Pros: There are a shining 'TUF' letters on motherboard.
Other MATX motherboard features...
Cons: The biggest flaw is there's no instruction about installing front panel pins on your motherboard. The only hint you have is those ant size letters printed on motherboard. PLEASE PRINT IT ON INSTRUCTION MENU.
Overall Review: I don't know if ASUS intentionally does this because my friend who bought a Z370 Prime-A also needed to read instructions on motherboard to connect front panel pins.
I also tried Gigabyte and MSI motherboards and I'll stick with one of them when I upgrade my system next time.
Pros: It's cheap. And it's the main reason that makes me buy it.
The plastic side panel looks like glass. A lot.
The outlook is good.
There are supports on the other side so you can place it horizontally.
Other MATX/ITX cases typical features...
Cons: -No 'seemly effective' dust filters on front and top side
-They welded the video card spot. Although it's only 4 dots, it's annoying enough and you have to destroy the whole thing to rip it off. Definitely one of the STUPIDEST DESIGN I'VE EVER SEEN SO FAR.
-Obviously there's a production error because when I install motherboard(ASUS B360M TUF) I cannot mount all the screws. 2 holes don't fit.
-The front/top side 'filters' are all magnetic and it's easy to displace them. destroying the outlook.
Overall Review: Practically it's not a 'con' but I want to mention it. Air available everywhere doesn't mean good air flow.
Overall I don't recommend this case. But it's still an option if you have a really tight budget.
Pros: I bought this when it's on sale so it's a decent config(1080p144, 24 inches) for $160.
Wide viewing angle, good colors...good features from a typical VA panel monitor
Using it for one month and the quality seems to be good. The product itself has no quality issue so far.
Cons: Not able to adjust height
Also the monitor takes about 8 inches width(from the screen to the table end). NOT recommended for small tables
The images are lagging, especially on gaming(I play League of legends). I don't think it's bad enough to affect my performance, but it's a problem you can see with naked eyes.
Overall Review: More explanation on lagging. When the minion moves you can see the black outline gets thicker, and it comes back to normal when it stops. I think the problem is the type of VA panel they used, rather than 'this particular screen has flaws'.
I bought 2 (the other one is for my girlfriend). She feels okay too.
Pros: -the menu&brightness buttons on the monitor are friendly to use
-the thin edge looks really good.
-clear 1080p images
Cons: -mine is a little bit small(21.5')
-the regular price is a little unreasonable. Buy it on sale.
-unable to adjust height
Pros: easy to setup -> plug in and use it.
enough cable length
Cons: not very comfortable to wear it
Pros: Works fine so far.
easy to install
perfect cooler for my i5-8400
Cons: well...'i' stands for 'intel'
Overall Review: I used Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut thermal paste
Pros: Inexpensive core, high performance.
Meets my needs for gaming.
low wattage->less heats.
Cons: I won't suggest using the cooler in the box. Buy yourself a better one.
Not compatible with 7th gen motherboards.
Overall Review: If you're looking for a better option, I'll recommend i5-8600k rather than i7-8700k. Both supports overclocking but i don't really think 8700k worth extra 100 bucks
Pros: Comes with 1 fan in it, with red light. -> up to 3 fans in front, 1 in back, and 2 on top.
Fits my Coolermaster T400i
Dust filters for power unit fan
Up to 4 drivers in drive bay
Inexpensive and looks cool
Cons: No spaces for optical drive.
You probably need a extra fan in back to support the air flow in the case.
Overall Review: I install an extra fan in back
Meet my expectation, so it's a 5.
Pros: Cables for dual 8-pin power supply graphic cards and 4-pin HDD power supply are included
Wasy to install
Works quietly so far
Not very expensive
Cons: the cable for motherboard power supply doesn't leave much room for you to organize it...i think it's a bit short
Pros: $30 cheaper than other memories.
Works fine with my GIGABYTE B360 motherboard
No compatibility issues so far
Cons: no cons i can tell for now
Overall Review: One advice: For ordinary users, the capacity of RAM is way more important than clock speed of it.
Pros: I can actually put 2 headphones on it
Easy to assemble
Cons: nothing i can find
Pros: 12.5 wm/k thermal conductivity. Only a few thermal paste can beat that.
This bag has everything you need.
Easy to apply.
Though it only has 1 gram, i think i can use for at least 3 times.
Cons: Not cheap. But worth it.
Overall Review: I used pea method to apply it.
Pros: budget motherboard
Detailed user's manual for rookies like me
works fine with all of other computer parts(i5-8400, GTX 1070ti from GIGABYTE, ADATA memory, WD HDD and SSD, 550watt CoolerMaster power unit)
Cons: Wi-Fi module is not built-in. And you need to download a driver to run your wifi module)
Only 2 case fan headers. Have to buy a extra converter.
Overall Review: There are other possible cons for gamers such as no overclocking or no RGB lights on motherboard, but I never expect any of those in B360.
I'll recommend this one if someone needs a B360 motherboard.
For people in California, this motherboard is unlikely to cause you cancer if you don't sleep with it, or eat it.
Pros: -really quiet
-red is cool
Cons: -You need to screw all the way down
-No screws come with my package, but luckily I have some extra from the case manufacturer
Overall Review: -Cons are not a big deal
-Pay attention to the number of fan headers in your motherboard. You may need a 1-to-2 or 1-to-3 4-pin converter.
-If I need another set of fans I'll definitely buy this set again.
