Overall Review: No RGB is a selling point for me because I like to turn the lights down when I game and a brightly glowing computer would detract from the immersion.
This card mines when I am away from the computer and in that regard I can say you get what you pay for compared to a 2080Ti.
I have a Gigabyte Windforce 2080Ti that performs about 25% better than the Gigabyte Windforce 2080 Super, and 2 MSI Seahawk 2080Tis that perform about 15% better than the Windforce 2080Ti.
Silent except for moving air noise to me at 75% fan speed, but my hearing is not so good in the high frequency range.
Pros: Cheap, can support up to 4 video cards.
Cons: It took me a month to get a cooling fan mounted.
Overall Review: I had an i74930k lying around and used this board to build a 4 card mining rig, but there are serious problems with it. The worst is that the holes to mount the cooler are apparently for a LGA1366 socket.
After trying 2 different coolers with both square and narrow ILM I contacted Noctura, who sent me a LGA1366 mounting kit for free. With that and some grinding with a dremel I was able to get a cooling fan mounted and things went pretty smoothly after that.
One additional warning is that the second PCIe slot is unusable for a video card unless you use a powered riser because the USB 3.0 connector is directly adjacent to it and the cable sticks straight up in a way that makes inserting a card impossible.
Pros: See below
Cons: See below
Overall Review: There is no install disk because they moved the software installation online, but the online installation still looks for a file on the non-existent disk.

1. Shut down your computer.
2. Unplug your optical drive from the motherboard.
