Most Favorable Review

Great case

Pros: Quiet. Great build quality. Much better than what I expected.

Cons: Nothing that I have noticed.

Overall Review: This is honestly the best PC case I have ever owned and I have owned many. I didn't want any bright LED fans or noise and this was the answer. It looks great. Nothing over the top or tacky like many cases. Very clean.

Most Critical Review

Not looking good (1 RMA so far)

Pros: Technically this board seemed like more than what I needed. Ran fine with 1 - 8gb stick of ram in it.

Cons: As with many other users, I experienced nothing but trouble and had to RMA this board back to Newegg. This board would not boot with more than one chip of RAM in at a time(1x 8gb). I tested them all and they worked (4 x 8gb). The RAM was part of a newegg bundle and according to Asus "it should work just fine" as it was a supported set. Asus support had no support answers.

Overall Review: I'm waiting on the new board still. Currently January 24th. After reading a ton of negative reviews (which somehow were not available a few weeks prior to Christmas) I'm really dreading this purchase.

Not the best LED panel

Pros: The price wasn't bad. Energy efficient.

Cons: Had to return to Newegg. Half the screen was black, the other was a gradient of black to grey. Very noticeable bright "V" at the bottom of the screen. When using the VGA hooked up to a PC, the screen would flicker a bit on white backgrounds.

Overall Review: Rather than RMA for another, I got a refund. Read a few reviews around the web with the same issues.
