Pros: Good board for the price

Cons: Like everyone else is saying UPDATE BIOS!!! Lucky if you get it to work on 1st try. Needs all kind of updated to actually work

Overall Review: This board has been a complete nightmare for me..... I am on my 2nd board because i cant get a refund(at this point i really want one so i can get a different manufacture mobo) I have build multiple machines and been in the IT field for over a decade, i dont not consider myself a beginner or a "know it all" I have reach out for help and still this mobo has been a pain to deal with This is my issue; M2 drives dont recognized until you update BIOS, i am currently on F6 bios and i am able to see the my M2 drive. Everything works fine.... install win10 OS.... and then on the reboot m2 is unable to post(same issue with 1st board)... m2 shows win boot managers is not there but yet drive works perfectly fine on a different mobo/pc I already troubleshot the m2 drive... i installed on a different machine right after stops working on z690 mobo and it boots just fine all the way. I have done some research online it seems is a common issue with this boards not finding the m2 drives Disable secure boot enable/disable CSM support Disable VMD Still not working

Excellent tower with minor problems.

Pros: -As you can expect with a full tower, it is big and has a lot of space. -Nice cable manage -5 fans in this particular case.

Cons: -Now even though this case has 5 fans, they feel really cheap/below average. specially the ones with the LEDs which are 3 out of the 5 fans. -I had a problem with one of the front fans, i fix it my self but it was annoying.

Overall Review: I would suggest to buy your own fans, it is not 100% needed but a more reliable addition for your pc. I am overall please with my purchase, i gave it 4 eggs because of the fan issue, but this tower imo is a solid 5 eggs.
