Dream to build with, but update the BIOS
Pros: - It was a wonderful experience building a PC with this motherboard - It looks great with a Vision graphics card
Cons: - Update the BIOS early on, it'll iron out lots of little issues. - Fix i225 network errors in the event viewer by downloading the latest driver from INTEL not Asus.
Overall Review: - Would recommend - Would buy again
Nice and simple
Pros: Obviously this is far from the Torrent from the same company but it still feels like a quality case, just with obvious cost cutting in the right places.
Cons: The only annoying thing I disliked was having to install an SSD behind the power supply, meaning you have to install the SSD first and if you ever want to change it you have to remove the PSU to get access. I'm sure there would be a simple tray solution that would fix that whole issue, but there is also not a lot of clearance in that area so that might be hard to fit aftermarket.
Overall Review: Would definitely recommend if you are looking for a case that still supports optical drive bays.
It does what it has to do
Pros: - It works - It is compatible with all the components I already have - Good replacement motherboard for an existing DDR3/LGA1150 system
Cons: This motherboard likes to show off it's MILITARY CLASS MOTHERBOARD certification alot. That's not really a big concern to be honest, it's just kinda funny for a media center PC.
Overall Review: I suspect these refurbished were used in schools and/or military bases where they might have had a rough life and a quick dismissal at disassembly. You might have to expect delays for the possibility of receiving a damaged unit but usually it's easy to get support for these issues. I consider this a better option than buying whatever used motherboard on the internet or at your local market.
Everything I received was brand new
With an increasing amount of resellers selling used goods as new it can be scary to order from lesser known sources but iSanek has provided me only with genuine new parts over a few orders made on Newegg and on different platforms. Will re-order from iSanek again.
Good customer care and service.
I received a defective unit at first, I contacted the seller, provided pictures, got a reply on the same day and got issued a replacement the next day, a few days later it arrived and this one looks in good condition and is working. I would recommend using this seller and will use it again since I know they will provide good service in case there is an issue.
