Pros: Works well for my media server, haven't had any issues with it yet other than when I replaced the factory CPU cooler with an H75, the stock CPU cooler actually pulled the chip out of the socket.
Cons: Chip came out when I replaced the factory cooler with an H75.
I have yet to receive a rebate for buying this product from AMD. That's why only 1 star I would give it zero but apparently customer service is horrible when I called to check on my rebate status, I was given the cold shoulder even after stating it has been past 8 weeks and it stated 7-8 weeks before it would be processed. It has now been 5 months and no rebate. I will not be buying AMD ever again. I can only imagine how much worse it would be to get warranty work done.
Overall Review: I recommend going with Intel even though they have an issue with their chips not being secure, but in all fairness all chip affected by it. Intel just has it worse when it comes to theirs.
Pros: This thing handles everything at 1080P without hesitation. I can't even max this 11 GDDR5X out yet. I have not tried a 4K monitor though. The RGB software looks amazing when set at the right color with what I have internally already.
Cons: The Aorus Graphics Engine for the RGB could be a little more user friendly it took about 5 min to figure out how to get any color other than the demo color, where it goes through a rainbow of colors non-stop.
Pros: Everything can't find anything really wrong with it, except once when it made a funny sound, but I just turned it off and left it off for a couple of days. Havent had any issues since.
Cons: Can be a little noisy at times when playing BF4, or Crysis, or any high taxing games. Expensive at the time for what I paid.
