Pros: It connected just fine, updated firmware without issues, and copied data from old SSD to this new one without any issues. Speed is fantastic.
Cons: 120 GB > 128 GB > 1 TB.
Overall Review: Used Corsair's software to copy data from old SSD to this.
Pros: Keeps the CPU really cool. Under load i cant get it to break over 32 deg. Have not overclocked yet but coming from a laptop with normal temps around 80, this is a huge improvment and really works.
Cons: Its a real serious pain to setup. But worth it!
Overall Review: None
Pros: 3.2GHz Hexa for soooooo much less than Intel.
Overall Review: I got a water cooling system and will overclock soon.
Pros: Overclocked. Can max out 99.9% of all games. Metro 2033 got avg 30 fps on all maxed settings. Stays cool (See other notes)
Cons: See Other thoughts
Overall Review: The fan system by itself is not great. Was getting 80 deg on high loads, and coming from gaming on a laptop where i got those temps.... not happy. But reading reviews said to get the EVGA precision software, and that has fixed the fan system. Fan now kicks in at proper temps and now GPU doesnt even pass 60 deg under load. Thanks to previous readers for mentioning the software.
Pros: Plenty of space of all components. The 3 230mm fans are awesome and provide a lot of cooling potential. Has enough room to store cables underneath the MB.
Overall Review: Swapped out the rear fan for a corsair H80 CPU cooler system. Fits just fine and pulls in a lot of cold air.
Pros: Very quiet. Stays cool even under load. Plenty of cable length for MB and CPU.
Cons: Its not 1000W
Overall Review: Corsair did a great job with this series of PSU's.
Pros: Fast transfer times. Plenty of storage space while my SSD takes the OS.
Overall Review: Not DOA is awesome
Pros: 1080p no problem. One of the flattest monitors i have ever seen.
Cons: Doesnt have the ability to adjust the angle for viewing. Buttons are hidden on the bottom and kinda hard to understand.
Pros: Super Fast Speeds. Definitely worth a SATA III investment. Will see how its doing in 6 months
Pros: 12GB of Awesome 1600 RAM! Motherboard saw all 3x 4GB sticks.
Overall Review: Mobo auto set them to 1333, so had to manually switch to 1600. Not worth losing an egg over it. Just be sure to check with your BIOS.
Pros: Great Motherboard. Mobo stays cool even under high loads. Has heat sensors to show temps all around the board. UEFI BIOS is simple, easy to understand, able to tweak without hassle.
Cons: Doesnt have great fan controls. Was putting my case fans at full blast 24/7. Did manage to find the software from ASUS to allow for better control. Just more of a hassle then id like.
Overall Review: If you want power, a simple BIOS, and great sensor tools, then get this motherboard. I'm glad I went with this instead of an 890FX board.
Pros: 12 Months of Xbox Live that's cheaper than the standard price. Just awesome!!
Overall Review: Newegg is awesome in offering such a cheap price!
