Pros: When these processors work they work
Cons: They almost never work
Overall Review: I bought this hoping to upgrade my pc. After install i couldn’t post, maybe bios?
Get latest and flash, still nothing. My old I 5 also wouldn’t work on the other bios chip anymore or the newly flashed bay 2.
Get a new motherboard because who knows? Try the i5 first, nothing. Try the i7 nothing. Tried new ram. Nothing. How did a brand new cpu fry 2 motherboards? Submitted an rma but due to life never got around to doing anything with it. And now that I have some free time I don’t even have my old pc to putt around on.
All in all 1 doa i7 fried 2 mobos and another cpu. Fighting the urge to throw it through my wall.
Pros: looks cool
Cons: everything else,
snaps, crackles, and pops but you can't eat it.
support is non existant, and apparently they've had this problem since inception but hey, who wants to fix things anyway.
Overall Review: I can't understand why it has such a high rating on new egg.
Pros: the functions that work, some what work. price
Cons: not loud, by any means. pathetic. my head phones make better noise. spdif DOA. foolish me thought that this being a decent brand it should work. tossed the box like a noob. don't know how i'm going to rma... good luck
Cons: who used this to play video games? good golly mrs. molly haha dude really? buy a car dang
Pros: it plays music from my phone
Cons: well it really doesn't stay in place, at all.
Overall Review: very attractive however equally useless.
Pros: Cheeeeeeaaaaaaap, and it does exactly what it's suppose to do. Even in a dirty nasty humid wet crawl space under my 50p year old house.
Cons: It didn't come with trident layer gum
Overall Review: Just buy it
Pros: it worked
Cons: it didn't perform anywhere near expectations,
software is a little silly, i'm convinced that it was giving bad cpu temp readings, it said it o.c.d but didn't need to restart? 3rd part says it didn't, on restart it keeps settings says it's ocd. 3rd party says otherwise. and when a software lets me oc to a ridiculous number and says it's stable while doing outrageous tests... there was simply no way that it wouldn't blow up.
Overall Review: board did what boards do, boots up everything was great, so if you want to spend the crazy money and get a cool looking motherboard and not oc because who wants to oc a i5k anyway right? then this mobo is for you. as for me... i'm sticking with asus and not looking back
Pros: Absolutely amazing. everything that comes in this case. including the case. people seem to forget that the case is huge and quite detailed. the statue is far more intricate than expected. the case for the game / extras packet is a pretty neat add. i never expected such a wealth of information into the Halo universe being a halo collector i under allocated space for this item. there is a lot to show off for $149 you can't go wrong with this.
Cons: possibly last Halo game. the end to a 9 year reign in my childhood life.
Overall Review: BUY IT
Pros: works great but...
Cons: 1 Pci slot... kinda fell short for me. However that's my fault so it's not really a con. this mobo works great
Cons: sucks don't buy
Overall Review: horrible waste of money
