Fantastic Modular PSU
Pros: -I have used this for nearly a month with my 3900x/aorus master/5700xt put it through some overclocking paces and have had no issues -Included are great looking cables with well marked connections for both PSU and appliance sides of the cables
Cons: -No problems so far
Overall Review: I would recommend this series as a whole, very well put together and well boxed, with fantastic performance/ease of use
This is the definition of future proofing
Pros: -Everything I would ever need in a motherboard is on this motherboard. -14 phase VRM makes for no issues with heat there -Chipset has adequate cooling as well as a great, easy to use BIOS -3 M.2 SSDs and the error code with reset/power/flash is perfect -Comes with temperature and audio level sensors for even more monitoring capabilities -subtle, muted lights, nothing over the top
Cons: -chipset fan sometimes will spin up, and I do worry about it's longevity
Overall Review: This is the best mid to high range X570 motherboard I found from looking at several reviews, could easily use this for OC or even LN2 if you wanted to go that route. The chipset needing a fan with sometimes spin-up is unfortnate, but there is only one board of this gen that doesn't use a fan, but it's the extreme high end AORUS XTREME I would completely recommend this board if you are at this price point!
What a jump! from a 3770K to this--outstanding
Pros: -Very great for any productivity work you could need to do. Outperforms everything I could hope to need. -Great for streamers, although I don't do that yet I am thinking about doing so since I have probably the best processor for that currently -Sits right near the top for gaming so far, not a lot of headroom for overclocking, but honestly it's not really needed. I set mine to a happy 4.0Ghz and it hums along fine. I am using a h100ipro Corsair
Cons: -limited OC headroom and not the best software to support that
Overall Review: I would recommend this product for anything you could do, this is a fantastic all around processor even beating much more expensive processors in some suites
Excellent at Ultra Graphics settings
Pros: Great FPS, Runs Planetside 2/Natural Selection 2/Assasin's Creed 3/Borderlands 2 all at max settings or ultra. I have a 28" ASUS screen at 1920X1080 with 3770k/16Gb ram/SSD and it is running a solid 50-60 in the midst of a firefight on Planetside 2's crowded servers.
Cons: can run slightly warm, fan is slightly loud (not terribly)
