Pros: Fast. Works.
Cons: None at the moment
Pros: Was a great card for the price. Free game. Played all my games on high-ultra settings at cool temps.
Cons: After a little over a month of ownership I started receiving Windows TDR Driver errors non-stop. Would freeze up my display and had to run in safe mode. Uninstalled the drivers and reverted back to previous nvidia drivers. Still, the problem persists. I am now running off my integrated graphics and waiting for the RMA to go through with ASUS. I also bought a new, higher wattage PSU thinking it was possibly a power issue, and that was not the solution either. Hence the RMA.
Overall Review: Asus was very quick and responsive to my questions/concerns. Also had no problems with them accepting the card to be returned and fixed by them. Lets hope I receive a working card in return.
Pros: Great for the price. Easy install. Powers everything I need it for as it should.
Cons: None that as of now.
Pros: Does what it's supposed to do.
Cons: None as of now.
Pros: Works. Installed the OS. Product key worked. What more could i ask for?
Pros: Very high end feel. Soft rubber feel. Mechanical buttons. Allows me to make many macros. Green LED lit, very vibrant. Also very comfortable design.
Pros: Quiet. Move a decent amount of air. Red LED looks great. Easy install.
Pros: Has connections for everything I installed (as every board should). Good solid board. x4 RAM slots. Supports my i5 4670k CPU and GTX 660.
Cons: Seeing as it was apparently a brand new board I didn't expect to open the box and have one of the CPU socket pins bent in the complete opposite direction. After hours of contemplating on whether or not to attempt to fix the fragile pin, I decided to do it. Took another 45 minutes to get it just right back into place very carefully. Very nerve racking. I would have RMA'd it but I couldn't wait another day to complete my build. I know for a fact I had nothing to do with bending the pin in the first place seeing as all I had done up to that point was take it out of the box and lift the socket arm up to examine the pins. Also does not come with screws to brace the mSATA SSD that came with it......at least mine did not include them.
Overall Review: All in all it is a good board for the price. But not worth an average rating due to my previously stated experience.
Pros: Plugs in and works, gold plated or what looks like gold plating.
Cons: A bit longer then I expected but that's my own fault for not measuring out what I needed.
