Pros: true 100hz panel, no creaking noises I have noticed of cheaper competitor.
USB 3.0 hub is a game changer
The stand is miles better, tilt and unusually high raised height.
(I like my monitors up high, I sit straight up)
Cons: nit picking - all i/o plug straight in allowing cords to stick straight out. ( I know this would be solved with 90s)
Overall Review: great replacement monitor for my cheaper failing brand. Surprised by the cables included
STAND IS WORTH THE ADDITIONAL MONEY
Don't Think Just buy
no dead pixels
A+ Acer, actually impressed
Pros: worth the 75 bucks
980gtx 4gb reference cooler previously thermal throttled all the time, max 83*c , this cooler installed max so far has been 49*c. 34*c makes it worth every penny.
1501 mhz core 4000mhz memory max temp 49*c after few hours of iracing/warthunder
finally reached temps to run 1500mhz 24/7
-1600mhz is going to be feasible
Cons: just a h55/h60 for the money expensive. sure the nice fitted gpu plate may offset it but.. for a 100 bucks i would think about it , maybe get another brand of cooler/adapter for AIO coolers.
installed for less than 24 hours , purchased this sunday feb 21st.
Overall Review: shipping was much faster than the ssd i ordered two weeks ago
impressed, still think its to expensive, that being said buy it, its on sale.
can not mention on longevity, installed for about 8 hours now.
BUY THE 1.5mm HEX
Instructions are that terrible. i have had this card apart previously when i had an EK block on so i had an idea. Instructions are still bad, so bad i don't even know why they are there. shield is cheap feeling compared to reference shroud.
Pros: Easy overclock
LLC varies little (+-.016v) best i have found for AM3+
Owned since launch
Paired with Fx6300 Since this board was realeased day 1. Overclocked well 5ghz @1.46v, after chip break in i have settled into 4.5ghz @ 1.37
Bios are easily updated if your not to savy in that department. Board keeps cool and overclocks well.
Cons: UEFI Bios can be a little wonky to get use to, it is also my first board that had it when i purchased it. Still used the keyboard.
Overall Review: really have been thinking of picking up a new chip for this board , but constantly talk myself out of it. Probably pick up a FX9xxx to daily , some will like the extra power over fx6xxx, i would how ever like to pick up a 4 core to try and push.
side note i never really noticed the lack of Cpu speed i have until i paired it with a GTX980 a few weeks ago now Chip is the weak link. GREAT BOARD I Spent much more money and would again.
Pros: This things really took the abuse, reliable as always
whats not to love?
daily at stock clocks for the most part was fast enough
Cons: High Price, much higher now than when i bought these sticks a while ago. Was thinking of picking up more for a Intel build but might just have to wait to see what the markets are going to do.. especially with ddr4 around the corner ;)
Overall Review: Have used gskill for years, my one stick did actually die on me, just one day did not turn on. tested the stick sure enough RMA was painless great company to work with. This is what will make me a repeat customer!
Pros: great board for the money. Worked fantastic till issues..
Cons: died random 05 code continually tried everything swapped memory video cards psu even barrowed my buddies cpu to try. its just dead rma already in process, asus mobo already purchased..
