Pros: Very Powerful Processor
Great for Desktop computer build! I am not a gamer, but anything I stream on it has not had any problems.
With enough memory it makes a wicked fast ram disk.
Cons: None So Far, but fan could be better!
Overall Review: I first bought this in Dec 2014 for a new system build with a Gigabyte Motherboard and 24 GB memory. I have built myself a new system with an ASUS mobo to replace that system after USB stopped working on motherboard connections. Used a Cryorig H5a CPU fan. I am building another system for my brother, but he is asking for an EVO212 CPU cooler. I love this processor. I have never had any problem with them. I have purchased 3 of these, and the one from the last build is in a drawer for a future build!
Pros: Has 20 pin connection for ATX case front connected USB 3 ports. Everything well laid out had no problems making all connections to motherboard. Booted up no problems. No problems finding install details in manual.
Cons: None yet.
Overall Review: Replacing Gigabyte motherboard that had USB problems. No such problems on this motherboard yet. Gigabyte unresponsive to USB issue, other than to recommend re-installing drivers. That was the first thing I tried! No response when that did not work. I am hoping this mobo will last longer that its replacement. . .
Pros: Cheap. Easy to install
Cons: None so far
Overall Review: Good Price for general duty use. Driver installation was easy. No problems so far.
Pros: Large Chassis Fan, plenty of room for components and routing cables!
Cons: Panels were a bit fussy to fit, but not enough to deduct any eggs!
Overall Review: New build with Asus motherboard and enough room for EVO Hyper 212 fan on top of AMD 8350 4GHz processor. Fans kept CPU at about 99F and motherboard at 88F. No problems mounting components into drive bays. and fan cables long enough to reach headers on mobo.
