Easy set up and install

Pros: Board installed and worked with no issues. Overclock functions seem very user friendly, have just used the ez tuner but it has lots of options.

Cons: only 4 usb ports, but I knew this looking at the product before I got it. It was part of a bundle I hate HATE! the metal I/O cover. thats not a dig on this mobo specifically just most boards in general, they are flimbsy and make installation a paint. Board feels a bit thin as it flexed a little while installing things. None of these are a reason to ding an egg.

Overall Review: got in bundle with an i7, zalman cooler, 1070 and some others. Was skeptical with previous reviews but was very surprised and pleased with the install

Good upgrade

Pros: it works. easy install

Cons: none

Overall Review: what can i say about this ? upgraded from a AMD fx8350 to this. Was looking at the i5 6600k but with blackfriday the cost to jump up to the 6700k was like $15 so I did. have done minimal OC'ing and probably wont push anything cause im still air cooled. Was paired up with a Zalman 92mm cooler and so far so good.

Nice cooler

Pros: installed this as part of a new build with a bundle that came with this and an I7. Install was easy, came with the proper mounting hardware and the instructions are easy to follow. Feels solid. came with some thermal paste

Cons: cant find any as of now.

Overall Review: This was part of a bundle on a new build so I cant compare how it reduces temps but install was easy, can is quite.

Very nice, not bad for a "cheaper" case

Pros: So I got this case in a bundle, so didnt have the option to pick it out but I was pleasantly surprised. It has some features that I would have thought would come from a higher cost case. The metal feels sturdy, the fans are quite, lots of space for hard drives/cd drives. Most of the edges are rounded and feels like a solid case. There are rubber "feet" on the bottom where the psu mounts. Vents on top for up to 3 more fans or a liquid cooling set up. Comes with all the screws and zip ties. There is holes on the mobo tray and cutouts for cable management. Overall very solid

Cons: Only 1 thumbscrew for expansion cards (ie video cars and what not). Some of the cables for the front ports could be a bit longer but still managed to fit them. Not enough to take starts off
