Pros: M.2 Heatsink
2 LED areas
Cons: None so far
Overall Review: I'm not a gamer and don't fully leverage the capabilities of this board, but am pleased with it so far. Haven't experienced any issues with the audio, bios and other driver updates from Asus worked flawlessly. It took me a minute to get the Aura and iCUE (Corsair RGB DRAM software) to link up, but it turned out to be my own mistake. LEDs are linked and working well. Very cool.
I plan on having this board for 5-10 years. So far, it seems to be another great product from Asus.
Pros: Brilliant design
External 5.25" drive bay
Top mounted buttons, USB ports & SD card reader (!)
Cons: No 3.5" drive mounting options in the main compartment
Overall Review: I haven't built a computer in years and wow - they've thought of everything in this case. Building in it is a dream. I specifically sought this one out for the integrated SD card reader, top mounted case buttons/ports, reversible door and 5.25" external drive bay.
Very happy, would recommend.
Cons: Died inside of a year
Overall Review: Installed in an old socket A system to run as an Ubuntu file server. It started dropping off the network about 9 months in. Another PCI NIC doesn't suffer the same problem. I blame the NIC and will buy another brand this time. ROsewill offers no warranty and Newegg only offers 30 day warranty. I got about 9 good months out of this thing.
