Pros: - It makes hooking up 6 fans a breeze I have 6 LL120s and it controls all of them through the iCUE software. - you can set fan speed temp curve or fixed RPM to all fans or individual fans. - an extra USB 2.0 hub is nice to have but I don't need that many.
Cons: - Price
Overall Review: In my setup I only needed the Corsair RGB Fan LED Hub to connect the RGB cables to the commander pro, also it comes with temp senors I personally haven't hooked them up or bothered with them they are there if you want to.
Pros: For the price you pay this board's feature set is great probably would've loved it if mine wasn't defective, unfortunately this is the 2nd troublesome Gigabyte motherboard I've owned (other being a UD7 Z68) maybe it's just bad luck, however personally I'll avoid gigabyte for a while.
Cons: - My board came with a defective dimm slot that was causing heaps of errors tested with memtest86 after having several blue screens, contacted Newegg and issued an RMA. -RGB colours are different when board first boots up changes back to whatever colour it was set to in the Fusion RGB software.
Overall Review: -Corsairs' Vengeance pro is automatically added to the fusion RGB software without anyway to remove it, meaning it will not sync with iCUE profiles easily (corsair's own software for managing their products) so if you have RGB fans and an RGB AIO liquid cooler all sync'd with iCUE your glow stick vengeance pro ram kit will instead default to whatever Fusion RGB is set to.and you have to change it back every time you boot-up.
Pros: - Good quality components. - Easy to setup pretty much hassle. - I do like aesthetics but I wouldn't pay extra for it - Asmedia USB controller.
Cons: -Asus auto installs software with Windows 10 installation it can be turned off in UEFI settings but it's on by default. - its price isn't competitive considering the competitor boards do have better features for similar price.
Overall Review: Wasn't my first choice had a Gigabyte board that was malfunctioning decided to go back to Asus ol' reliable..
