Pros: -Great mother board for the price -Has rather unique ways of making your computer run faster with the DIP (Dual Intelligent Processor) -Clickable buttons on the motherboard to change settings
Cons: I encountered some rather weird problems with the motherboard. -First the graphic cards slot doesn't fully secure the graphics card in. It leaves a 1-2cm gap with one side of the graphics card, which doesn't serve as a problem but could cause some faults in the graphics card. -Second, I spent 3 hours troubleshooting my motherboard because it gave me the 1 long beep, 3 short beeps trouble code. Spending countless time believing that my RAM was damaged, I was shocked that disabling "IO Mode" on my motherboard caused it because I had no use for it. So beware, if you do get this code try hitting the IO Switch in order to fix the problem. I didn't want IO switch turned on, because it lowers the speed of my graphics card by turning the PCI-E 16x 2.0 to a PCI-E 8x 2.0. IO switch is what allows USB 3.0 or SATA 6g/b to go full speed.
Pros: Amazing sound quality for its price, the 3d sound effect it creates is rather stunning.
Cons: Product stopped working after 2 months of operations and Creative refuses to RMA my product. I am very disappointed in their customer service and because I've sent my product it, it has been deemed "lost" even though UPS stated that the product has been safely sent in.
