Pros: No idea havent got a chance to use it yet. returning for a new one
Cons: showed up broken. after pulling out of box fan seemed to be wobbly in from. found out fan was not mounted to frame it was only being held on by its wire. i was able to get my finger in between and it felt as though only a piece of double sided tape was there to hold the fan to the frame.
Overall Review: this is the first ever issue ive had with a cooler master product. item feels heavy and well made but after this it looks like they cheeped out where it counts.
hopefully ill get to use the replacement.
Pros: It does graphics like it should. Runs cool but I’m sure that’s due to the fans.
Cons: The fans are constantly running and pretty noticeably loud. Maybe it’s just me. But I upgraded to this card from a GTX 1070 sc from evga. Never heard that thing once. Fans were dead silent. Mostly because Fans didn’t need to run while idle.
Overall Review: If you’re not trying to add to the hum of your pc go with something else. I kinda get why they call this one VENTUS.
Pros: I actually only use asrock motherboards in my builds for myself as well as for customers I build for. As always it is a solid motherboard.
Cons: I purchased a western digital blue 500gb m2 ssd for this new build as it was listed on asrocks site as being supported. What it doesn’t say is that it is only supported in the secondary m2 slot. I originally installed it into m2_1 slot but when I booted up and went to bios it was not showing up. Open up the install guide and sure enough the original support list is divided between each m2 slot.
Overall Review: My con really isn’t a con per say more of just a minor inconvenience for having to remove my gpu to place ssd in second slot after I thought I had everything se up the first time. I will always recommend an asrock board.
Pros: it works great. have not had a single issue with since it arrived and i put together the computer im even using to type this msg.
Cons: video card is hairs width away from cooling radiator. not a problem with the board more an issue with my small case and mounting the radiator on the exhaust. lol
Overall Review: not sure why so many people had such a bad experience with the board. either im luck or people are crazy. hahaha either way money well spent.
