Pros: Great motherboard, definitely worth the price.
Cons: The Intel Kaby Lake i7/i5/i3/G4/G3 series is on the supported list, however if you receive one without the proper updated BIOS revision, it will not post.
You cannot update the older BIOS revisions on this board without a Skylake CPU. Eggs negated.
Pros: This thing is SWEET! I'm coming from ATI Rad 3870HD, which I highly don't recommend (or ATI of the matter); but nevertheless this card is awesome! Everything runs very smoothly, very good purchase.
Running Vista 64bit.
Cons: It's HUGE! Takes up 2 slots, not really a Con but yeah its intimidating.
Overall Review: If your GPU shopping, stop now and buy this one, you won't get any better performance for the price.
Pros: Its a good board! Sadly replaced my Gigabyte GA-MA790GP... Had bad restarts, lots of bsod's and issues beforehand also. Thought it was my ram, replaced it; no cigar. Switched to this mobo and everything works fine.
Cons: Would be nice if it had another PCI Express slot.
Overall Review: Always check to see if you plugged in the 4-pin connector on your mobo, and pay attention when your plugging in your cpu fan, its directly under your processor and to the left by your audio slots.
Pros: This case is just wow... The ventilation is excellent, it's very well built, the blue lighting is awesome. It's not flimsy what so ever, the HD case that comes out is simply fantastic, it also has a 120 mm fan circulating air right on the HD's.
Cons: I absolutly love this case, but there is a few things with the power supply. The 20 pin connector that goes to the motherboard from power supply is kinda short, so be very careful when opening the motherboard side after connecting it, you have to disconnect it before opening the motherboard side. Hmm theres a few minor things, this case weighs about 30-40 pounds but thats because its well built, also the magnets that hold the front cover are kinda weak but its not a big deal.
Overall Review: This case has to be the best case i've ever bought, if you want to make a great investment here it is...
