1080p killer.

Pros: Great card for the price. If you are gaming at 1080p there is nothing out you will not be able to max out while playing at 60fps minimum and typically up to 120fps with filtering on a slightly lower setting. I see a lot of people complaining about heat...if you have a case with decent airflow and aren't mining you will be fine. I have overclocked the card and still reduced it's max power and rarely reach 70c except in benches. Gaming it stays 50-60c.

Cons: Zero after 4 months. EDIT: been over a year now I believe and card is still 100%

Great keyboard! EDIT: OWNED OVER 1 YEAR AND ZERO ISSUES

Pros: -corsair utility engine makes it relatively easy to get some cool lighting effects on your key board, basic settings are easy while the advanced seem to not work? I may just not be doing it right -love the cherry keys, very responsive with out the loud clicking of blues -palm rest is detachable which is nice if youre not into it

Cons: -Advanced lighting options are a little tricky, still trying to figure them out. no lost eggs cause this could be an ID-10-T error(user error)

Overall Review: yes great board, I got lucky and caught it on sale for 79.99 and jumped on it, if it goes on sale again I highly recommend jumping on it as it still comes with a 1 year warranty.

Easy Installation and no issues posting

Pros: Lots of Pros to this board -EDIT: with version 1.4 I can now get my RAM to run easily at 3066, I believe with some tweaking I will be able to get it to 3200+ -Great looks(IMO) -easy to install, some boards with the IO shroud have you pull that off to remount by using standoff screws, this board does not. -Fan headers for days, I have this in a S340 so the 5 4pin headers is perfect for me, if you have a larger case and want more than 5 4 pin fans in the case I suggest some of the 2-to-1 4 pin adapters. I have 3 120mm fans, CPU Radiator has 2 120mm fans, and a pump plugged in

Cons: I only have 2 real cons, the rest is just things to be aware of. -1st real con, The AM4 bracket is vertical now causing CPU fans with clips, atleast from what I have tried, to have the large air coolers facing up and down instead of left and right which I really liked. This causes hefty fans like the Hyper D92 and 212x evo turbo to have about a 1/2inch overlap of your dimm sockets, if you have tall RAM like I do, Dominator platinum, you will not be able to fill all 4 dimm sockets if you use traditional large air coolers, I was forced to go to a cooler master masterliquid pro. -2nd real con, kind of lacking on USB ports, I should probably get a hub but, even my 990fx board had more ports. -Left side led line is more of a pale yellow, so if you want everything black and white keep that in mind because it is a different color than the white LEDs on the heatsinks.

Overall Review: -Looks great and works great for the price, could use a few more USB ports on the IO panel but that is my only complaint with this motherboard.

Great Ram but know what you need

Pros: -aesthetically appealing -lots of room for overclocking -great performance -running at 3000Mhz stable

Cons: -N/A -maybe the white leds if you're not into that

Overall Review: Always check your mobos QVL list before buying RAM. I bought some my Dom Plat 3000 sale where it was basically the same price as everything else for one reason or another. I jumped on it for my new Ryzen 5 build and after 5 bios updates finally got it to reach its 3000MHz this was definitely a board and cpu issue but be aware.
