Pros: Works well. Nice bios. 5 PWM headers can be switched to DC. E-Leet Utility works great shows all voltages EXCEPT Ring/Cache!
Maybe I have a good chip 4.7 1.35v 5820k 4.5 1.23v or its the board.
Onboard led debug.
Cons: Max ram speed 3200 + bclk so maybe 3300ish.
E-Leet Utility almost perfect. I just want to use 1 monitoring program PLEASE EVGA almost there, need operating RING/CACHE voltages.
Why are voltages in bios in 2 different places whats the point?
Cant use the io cover when a gpu that has a backplate is installed??? Geez. Little petty things but make a difference.
Overall Review: I had the original, this seems better especially with Eleet Utility working now for X99. Better ram clips don't interfere with gpu.
Took away on board voltage check points.
Added SATA and usable M.2 express slots original was nearly useless.
USB 3.1 type c = why? Just put a type a or both.
Bottom fan headers point down.
Pros: I had the first review for these just updating. Finally got a chance to overclock them and they do work as easily on 3200 as 3000. Just not sure about secondary and tertiary timings. Which is most important.
Cons: Cant easily remove heat spreader if at all.
Pros: Pretty much max speed for AMD setups. Low Cas. Top part of heat spreader is removable. Came with ram cooling fans.
Cons: Fan cooler molex connector should be able to allow you to switch the connections between 12v 7v and 5v. I had to buy another cable to tear apart to keep the fan one in normal condition.
Pros: Got it on sale. Has a feature where you can set permissions for the firewall and it will learn what you always allow and create a rule for it. Very helpful for my in house cloud network.
Cons: Full price is too much.
Pros: Nice power supply, bronze rating, 600w, strong enough for all mid range dual card setups, Is small.
Cons: Not modular.
Pros: Good bright light, on/off switch, and sturdy construction.
Cons: Wires for the lights are too short for neat cable management, had to order an extension cable. Wires need to be a bit longer for power/switch.
Pros: Price on sale seems decent, sound seems decent, SBX Studio is a program that installs with the driver so you can tune the sound to whatever you want and is the real 5 egg earner here. Has EQ, Dolby, DTS, Scout mode for FPS so you can here enemies approaching easier, all very cool stuff. I don't know much about sound cards but am very familiar with features and whether or not they work for me and these do.
Cons: One problem on the driver level but not always consistent. Sometimes the sound card will disappear from device manager which equals no sound. A shutdown and leave computer off for about 5 seconds is the only fix I found. Has happened 2 times since August and once I disabled like 10 HDMI output devices from Playback Devices it hasn't happened since.
Overall Review: I say seems because I wouldn't know a good sound card from a bad one, but the driver software is very good and user friendly.
Pros: It is a very cool feature to have waterproof capability upto 33 ft under water. Built in features of the camera are great and videos although only 1080i are very crisp and clear, the sound picks up well too.
They sell these at Wally World so you can go test it and see how it feels and works.
I haven't tested it but I am a landscaper and I like to take pictures of my work but my work environment is very dirty I don't care with this camera because I can just wash it off and also don't have to worry about dust getting inside it.
Cons: Parts of the camera casing feel like cheap plastic. It is a rather large camera, but I prefer small its about as thick as 2 iphones.
Neweggs, picture makes the left side of it look discolored.
Pros: Price (got it on sale elsewhere), Lifetime Warranty (to get it registered must put a P before the serial number for it to work), fast, powerful, and new.
1202 oc on core for gaming and 1175 oc core for valley
Cons: Didn't buy two.
Pros: Newegg selling the C batch so good OC's 4.7 @ 1.368 vcore. HT, c states.
Pros: Got free in a bundle x2, sold both keys, comes with a free notepad quite handy for the desk and free keys for trying out starcraft.
Cons: Need original to play.
Pros: Platinum, got it for under a hundred, 4x 6+2, and hybrid fan nearly never runs.
Cons: Makes an nearly inaudible buzz when the pc is off but cant hear when case is closed.
Pros: Its a SSD, my first. Comes with a free software download, haven't tried it yet though. Comes with a 3.5" bracket. Windows 8 loads faster than my bios. Came with a free game and rebate.
Not sure how fast it really is compared to my regular HDD but it is definitely silent.
Cons: Price seems high.
Pros: The card handles everything I throw at it on my 1080p hdtv. I play LoL, BF3, CSGO. I am also a folder so that maxes out the card.
Cons: When folding and the card is at its max it has a high pitched coil whine, no good...
Overall Review: Without the coil whine it would be a fantastic card but its not now.
Pros: Price, only a week new, easy installation, fast boot time even on my SATA I hdd, is actually a Full Retail version not just an upgrade, most drivers are all there. For install help see my other thoughts.
Cons: Learning curve with some of the setup, I miss the old start button.
Overall Review: To use this as a true upgrade you must be upgrading to same 32-bit or 64-bit and be coming from Windows 7 (not sure if starter version is the same).
If coming from XP or Vista or changing 32-bit or 64-bit you have to do a full new install. To do so insert disc, either 32 or 64-bit, and boot from disc drive follow instructions after that. You will lose settings and programs unless you have them on separate partition. I moved my steam apps and the steam.exe to a separate partition beforehand so I did not have to re-download my games.
Pros: Came out to free after MIR. Small. ASUS. Works as it should.
Cons: Needed 111mb download from ASUS to install drivers. Largest driver package I ever used, especially for a peripheral device. Windows 7 doesnt have device driver in database.
Overall Review: People that cant get it to work on Win 7 download utility package from ASUS, install, restart, bada bing!
Pros: Cheap, the length,
Cons: Didn't work in one device but does in another.
Overall Review: ???
