Most Favorable Review

Great Cooling/Sharp Look

G.SKILL FTB-3500C5-D Fans
G.SKILL FTB-3500C5-D Fans

Pros: Easily mounts to the motherboard. Blue LED's in both fans makes for a great addition to having a "modified" look. Cools the memory very nicely.

Cons: No cons from me, but if controlling the fan speed were super important, it's the only thing that could be considered a con.

Most Critical Review

Not impressed

ASUS AMD A68HM-K FM2+ AMD A68H FCH (Bolton D2H) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
ASUS AMD A68HM-K FM2+ AMD A68H FCH (Bolton D2H) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Not their customer service that is for sure

Cons: Motherboard was running great for about two weeks when Network components crapped out. Setup a Repair with ASUS and had motherboard serviced. What a joke! Got the board back and now grphics components not displaying or sending any signal. I also love to that when contacting customer service I was told they can not tell me what was done to the board, nor did they have any notes. When asking to speak to a supervisor I was told my issue was not important enough to bother that senior advisor. Is this the support I am to receive for my loyalty to your product name?

Simply Amazing

Pros: Very fast out of the box. K series, so it's unlocked a big plus. Stock heatsink fan is included with variable speed fan.

Cons: Heatsink fan looks okay but for the price, come on intel, you can make it look way cooler! :)

FAST MEMORY

Pros: Great RAM for the price. Looks sharp on any motherboard. No issues installing or running right out of the box.

Cons: No problems

Excellent board for anyone looking to upgrade

Pros: The board is very appealing a 1st glace, and still looks great after a 100 + views in the case. The on-board features are very solid. Between the UEFI Bios and tweaking software included, I have absolutely no complaints. Boot up right out of the box with no complications. Stock audio is more than quality, it's fantastic. Easy board for any tech experience/knowledge to navigate and set up! Highest recommendations from me if looking to up grade to something more standard and updated!

Cons: I have no hard complaints about this board at all. Yeah, could they have thrown the Blue-tooth in, sure, but even if I had an actual need for it, still isn't a detriment that it's not there!
