ASUS Rampage IV Extreme LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard
ASUS Rampage IV Extreme LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: This was my first build, love the board. It's a bit larger than an average motherboard but fits almost everything beautifully. The ram is a bit cramped and it's pretty close to the lga socket, my evo cooler fit barely with both fans next to my ram. Everything booted the first try with no problems, accepted all 8 slots of ram without a problem. Can't wait to start tweaking things! Has a lot of features, usb 3 ports, sata 6gbs, etc. Haven't done any overclocking except for trying the gamer OC profile, it didn't work and wouldn't boot but after a little while it booted up saying the profile failed and continued without problems.

Cons: If you get a large cpu sink you might not fit the two closest ram slots. The coolmaster 212 plus and evo will fit no problem with the ram. The X Socket feature doesn't support every LGA type listed, it didn't fit the 212 plus. Double check with the xsocket website to know for sure. Though the 212 plus WILL fit if you order the lga 2011 bracket or request the parts from the coolmaster site.

Overall Review: Here's my build, ASUS Rampage IV Extreme (BIOS 1101) Intel Core i7-3930K G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 32GB (8 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 186 EVGA GeForce 580 Superclocked WD Caviar Black 1.5TB Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX850 V2 850W ATX12V v2.31/ EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE NZXT Phantom Full Case

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ONE

Pros: I've had these for 5 years already, I initially bought it for a bikini line trimmer but this is amazing for trimming all the hair, it's so much better than shaving( i used to get horrible razor burn). It takes a few tries to get used to it but once you master it you'll love it. I went through two of these just because the first one's retractable razor stopped working, but that may just be from me not taking proper care of it, but nonetheless it's worth it for 25 dollars, i'm just come careful with my new one.

Cons: None really.

Overall Review: I recommend this to any girl and I've already had a bunch of my friends buy it and they all love it.

Awesome

Pros: Huge, you will fit everything (you might not fit extra side fan if cpu sink is huge though). Easy slide in and out slots hard drives, the disk drive just slides in and locks, no need to screw anything in. Cable management! Has rises for the power supply to be upsidedown. Cover parts (top and front) come off semi easy. I sometimes have some problems taking off the main side though. The front lower fan can fit a 120mm and I believe a 140mm which was a pleasant surprise since I had an extra 120 from my cpu cooler. Looks awesome.

Cons: Extra fans not included. You can see all the finger prints. HEAVY The two side fans are a bit annoying since they are connected to the inside of the case, and you have to make sure the wires don't get into the fans or else you can hear the clicking noise.

Overall Review: Doesn't cool as well as I was expecting, I'd say 7 out of 10 once I installed the extra front fan. I think if I get the large side fan then it will prob be a 8 or 9 out of 10. But I don't know if it will fit yet cause of my cpu sink.

Great drive

Pros: Usb 3, 32 gb, price.

Cons: The design is a little flawed, all my other drives have some integrated cap (slid in or swing cap) I haven't lost the cap though I'm sure I wont have it forever. It does get really hot, but I don't know if that effects anything.

DOES NOT FIT LGA 2011 WITHOUT EXTRA KIT

Pros: Had to end up getting the evo, which is pretty much the same thing with a different fan.

Cons: ALMOST fit with xsocket. This cpu sink has lga 2011 support that does NOT come with the packaging, the EVO did update their product by including the lga 2011 standoffs, while leaving the 212 in the dust. Though you can buy the bracket on newegg or request a free one from coolmaster.

Very good for price

Pros: Good hd quality, once you get it set up the way you want it it works great, and awesome microphone as well.

Cons: You have to mess around a little bit with it to get it to display the way you want it to, somewhat confusing sometimes to find the menus and what not. The focusing is the most annoying, you need to turn it off so that it doesn't spazz
