Cons: None really

Overall Review: there is a firmware update...but I suppose that is good really.

Most Critical Review

Router is just so-so.

ASUS RT-AC53U 802.11ac Dual-Band Wireless-AC1200 Router, AiProtection with Trend Micro for Complete Network Security-Certified Refurbished

Pros: It has the ability to run dual bands at 2.4GHz and 5 GHz. Lots of options in the UI for the router. Low cost for a good name.

Cons: Does not support 1Gigabit LAN. Huge disappointment for me. If you have speeds over 100Mbts down you won't get them through a Cat 5/6 connection on this router. The 2.4GHz feels slower than my old Linksys WRT54GS did. I am going to turn this over and get a better router. Not impressed with this one.

Overall Review: None.

Pros: Long wires. High amps on rails. Good price. Huge fan to keep it cool.

Cons: Was rated in CPU mag having a rather high temp when the load was pushed high. I doubt anyone will push it as hard as their test did though.

Overall Review: 2 of the 12v rails are labled for PCI-E and the 3rd is not labled which is for the older ATX boards that do not support PCI-E

Great vid card

Pros: Ok price. Great card. All games at max setting. BF2 SF 2142.

Cons: The fans doesnt look to be too hefty.

Overall Review: after I bought this the 8800GS was made and came close to the same price as this was when I bought it.

HUGE Fans

Pros: Nice layout. Good Passive cooling. Great chipset. No problems at boot up. Lots of OC ability.

Cons: Could have supported a set of attachable USB's to the rear. The Nvidia Firewall is a do not install. Install all else but NV firewall( known to cause memory freeze up) Apart from that this board is solid.
