Great board!

ASUS 970 PRO GAMING/AURA AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX AMD Motherboard
ASUS 970 PRO GAMING/AURA AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Everything! Works great, expandability is there, reliable, solid board.

Cons: None, works flawless, does everything and more. It's ASUS

Overall Review: Built my daughter a rig around this board I coupled an AMD 8350, 16gb of Corsair Vengence, a Samsung 500 Evo, 1TB WD Black, Samsung DVD-RW, in a CM 400 window paneled case. I had a corsair 850 PSU and I gave her one of my GTX 66's I had in SLI in my old rig. Waiting for 1080's to arrive so I can upgrade to one and I can SLI the 2 660's in my daughters rig. She is overjoyed with the outcome, can do college work, gaming, and streaming...which is what she wanted. Loves the RGB as well. It's a solid board, ASUS and I highly recommend!

Works but...

Black 6 Channel Multi Fan Controller
Black 6 Channel Multi Fan Controller

Pros: Color matches my case. Controls the speed of my fans but had to purchase seperate 3 pin to 4 pin adapters so do your homework. I did not, my fault. It does what its suppose to do but I think Zalman can tweek this a bit and do better. Learn from the reviews and get quality control and design team on it right away.

Cons: 1st one the wires came disconnected from the unit with very little force. None of the lights worked at all. RMAed to a new one, that unit only the forst 3 LEDs worked, the remaining 3 will not no matter what I do. Now today after 6 months of ownership the 2nd LED went out.

Overall Review: I'm disappointed because Zalman is known for better quality products. Will I but Zalman again, of course...just not a fan controller.I'd try a different unit and a different company product but reading all the reviews seems theres really not 1 rock solid fan controller out there without flaws or poor quality reliability.

Excellent ram

EVGA 512-P3-N845-AR GeForce 8800GTS (G92) KO 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card
EVGA 512-P3-N845-AR GeForce 8800GTS (G92) KO 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card

Pros: PRICE! Quality and performance! Installed one in my brothers new rig I built and I would not hesitate one minute recommending this card!

Cons: 1st one died after 3 days. TOO hot but something was missed in the factory on that one. After 300 or more purchases over the years, EVERYONE is bound to get the 1 out of 10,000 that is faulty. It was just my turn :) Newegg as always RMA'd me a new card within 3 days and we were up and running again.

Overall Review: Without question the best tech support in the business. (see my other reviews on EVGA). Thank you EVGA! Thank you NEWEGG! Price for performance why hesitate, buy this card!

EVGA 512-P3-N802-AR GeForce 8800GT Superclocked 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card

Pros: Tech support is 2nd to NOBODY! Cards are running in SLI on my EVGA Tri-Sli 780i flawlessly. AA, BF2, COD4, GRAW2, all never looked nor ran so beautifully!

Cons: None

Overall Review: Call you get a human (within 1 minute), who speaks ENGLISH...or get on the call back system and they call you back under 20 mins! Newegg cant be beat!
