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