This is my first Motherboard
Pros: -Looks amazing! -very sturdy I accidently mishandled it but it never got damaged. -does its job and I am happy with it. -Although I have a 10th Gen I am able to use this motherboard with the intention to upgrade in the future with the same motherboard to test its full potential with an 11gen. -great fit for a Mini Tower case
Cons: -Not sure which USB port but it disconnects often that I had to take out the sound on my computer so I'm not sure if its my motherboard. -RGB dragon is weak the lights don't shine through like displayed on pictures, from what I was told you don't remove the Dragon sticker. -You can't use the 1st M.2. slot unless you have a 11th Gen CPU, I had to use the 2nd slot. Used it to add Windows into my first computer using the M.2. 2nd slot on motherboard. -With a 10th gen CPU Its best to use 3000RAM (the Max) until you can upgrade your CPU to an 11thgen I consider these things cons for now. -Design is flawed If you see the photos I'm showing (big deal deducted a star for it) You basically have one less JRAINBOW1 I'm attempting to plug in my 5v 3-pin fans and was not able to because the place was tight and physically impossible. You can see in the photos how it hits the led 2-pin plastic which denies me from plugging it in. (located at the bottom left corner) If you don't plan to own a RGB 3-pin fan go for it. Still a great Motherboard but for the price and having a flaw like this is very disappointing.
Overall Review: Would recommend but please fix what's flawed or lower the price if you don't plan to. Paid so much for it to be perfect in the aspect of being able to use its full potential like being able to plug my RGB fans but apparently that was not the case too much to ask. Hoping they listen so when you buy yours you can enjoy your RGB 5V 3-pin fans. I think its a good motherboard if you need it in a smaller build and plan to upgrade in the future to an 11thgen, If not then wouldn't recommended it. You can find something that is more affordable not designed flawed and enjoy the full power of a 10th gen CPU.
Great Value and beautiful
Pros: -beautiful fans -great to start out with until you have a bigger budget to add better stronger fans -great value -they do the job even having a 3080ti it keeps my case cool (disclaimer my PC case has a good airflow not all PC cases are as fortunate as mine so that may vary I know those with experience building PC's know this but I say this so beginners like me keep that in mind)
Cons: -although its beautiful it isn't as white like displayed on the pictures, if that matters to you then its a con. -They came dirty out of the box -3 pin fans -RGB I wasn't able to control without control -They feel cheap probably wont last but that's why I say its a good starter fan
Overall Review: I would recommend these fans to start with, not long term because it feels cheap. If I can make it any better update the color to a nice clean white and maybe build it more sturdy. Don't send them dirty who knows if I received it used.
works great but looked used
Pros: -I was able to buy this at a affordable price it also came with a game at the time which made my purchase even better
Cons: -came dirty? not sure what it is. As soon as I took it out of the boxed looed scratch and I always take photos before using my products. I wiped didn't come off, maybe scratched? who knows. I don't like that but every seems to be working just something I thought I should share. Hoping I wasn't sold a used CPU.
Overall Review: I would recommend but please sell new not used. mine was scratched for that I deducted a star for the unknown.
