Update the BIOS12/8/2019 11:33:43 AM

Pros: -Connect it to the internet when you're doing your first boot and update the bios -You can connect and update directly through the boot menu so you don't need a USB stick as long as you have internet. -Will save you so much headache later

Cons: -Update the bios stop reading this

Overall Review: Made for OC. Very nice looking board, wish the Hero logo was a bit brighter.

Holi Moly Guacamole12/8/2019 11:30:37 AM

Pros: -Fast AF -Runs anything I throw at it -Benchmarks in the 99th Percentile for 2080ti's out of the box -Looks Great

Cons: -Not a whole lot of SLI (NVLink) supported titles anymore, more of a dig on the industry not this card so still 5 eggs. Just wish I could get two of these and alter the universe.

Overall Review: I can finally live my childhood dream of noscoping noobs in COD

Case is Massive12/8/2019 11:26:54 AM

Pros: -The Case is Massive -Plenty of Room for Upgrade -Any mounting and cooling options you can think of will fit -Price is good for what you get

Cons: -Magnetinc dust filter system is incredibly stupid and they are always "peeling" Ill probably superglue them to the magnets at some point -Case is almost too big, running power to the motherboard was a tight fit -Included fans glow blue ruining my RGB hotness, I wish they didnt have LED's

Overall Review: Very good for the price with lot of upgrade options if you want them. Case will take up allot of space so its probably not appropriate on your desk but I have mine on the ground and its about as tall as a IKEA dresser.

Very Nice set of RAM some unknown stability issues in OC12/8/2019 11:21:56 AM

Pros: -Quick and Easy to Install -Looks very nice -Sycns with ASUS Aura software so I get some cool RGB effects -Probably Functions as Intended

Cons: -RAM will not OC with updated BIOS (ASUS ROG CROSSHAIR VIII HERO DOCP settings enabled) to 3200mhz as indicated on the Box (computer power cycles and the bios reverts) -This could be because I bought two individual 32gb 16x2 sets for a total of 64gb but the debate is out on the the internet as to whether or not this should be an issue if the units are identical. -Might need to return these for a single 64gb set

Overall Review: I toyed with manual timings but I was hoping that the updated BIOS would take care of it. Even with the manual timings it will not reach the advertised 3200 and will begin to have stability issues around 2333mhz. I want to have the faster ram to take advantage of the new ryzen 9 but I may need to return these if I cant find any way around it.

. Hi Gurpreet Thank you for your G.Skill purchase and review. Good to hear you like the appearance of the Trident Z Royal series memory. By using two separate kits of memory, the rated specifications are no longer guaranteed. Since the two kits were not matched and tested from factory, the user would be responsible for doing so and accepting the task. For guaranteed results, it is necessary to use a single 64GB kit that has been certified from G.Skill factory. For any further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us directly. Thank you for choosing G.SKILL Quality and customer service are our top priorities.
