Pros: Good price, around the same price as slower speed SATA3 SSD
Cons: none, it works as a hard drive should.
Overall Review: Well, my main drive is a Samsung 970 Evo plus 1TB, this is my storage drive. Go with Samsung if you are buying for your system drive.
Pros: Not an expert, But everything installed fine and works. Just here to give a moral support.
Cons: The Built in WIFI really sucks, terrible signal,totally disappointed me. My PCIE Wifi module did way better. Consider the Wifi Junk.
Overall Review: Since the WIFI is completely useless, maybe consider the MicroAtx Taichi if you want a smaller factor.
Pros: Works without problem
Cons: Temperature reading. Don't know the logic or tech behind it, but it is annoying having the 27 degrees offset. It Makes a lot of AIO cooling fan controls more difficult.
Overall Review: The CPU gives false temperature reading. Gave me 70 degree idle on HWmonitor w/ AIO water cooler installed, confused me at first, thought Cooler was broken. Just use AIDA64 or ryzenmaster to read the true temperature.
Pros: Cooling capability is good on my Threadripper 2950X.
Cons: The flow control software needs some serious work. The software shows incorrect temperature on my Threadripper 2950X. It goes from 80-104C according to HWmonitor while my actual temperature from Ryzen Master reading is 30-58C, making the CPU temperature based fan curve useless since it is locked at 100C Cap, if i use it instant max fan speed at idle. Coolant based Fan curve has really deep curve since the jump in coolant temperature is not that much, the deep curve will make fans spike very easily when doing some simple tasks. The fan is very noisy after 1200 rpm. Now i am just setting 2 profiles, 1100 RPM for average task for silent fans and 1750 RPM blower when fully under load, just need to manually toggle it before i do anything really intensive. Really need a temperature offset to set up the proper CPU temperature based Fan curve, I am just that lazy. Those with Ryzen CPU better watch out.
Overall Review: Heard there are some people out there simply ditched the Software, used BIOS to control and set up fan curves.
I hope they can give me automatic Fan Speed switch rather than % Increase curve, I just want to switch between 1100 RPM and 1700 RPM.
Pros: it works
Cons: this mother board causes BSOD when i install my graphic cards on it. I have tried GTX 560ti and brand new HD7870. It only wont crash when i use the onboard intel HD graphic. I have updated drivers,configured BIOS setting, test it on both fresh installed windows 7 , windows 8.1. I believe the PCI E slot just not working with the cards. Very frustrating because it took me so long to troubleshoot the problems.
Overall Review: not that good experience for me
