Pros: Right angle connectors no chipset fan beautiful design
Cons: Only thing i can think of to put here, is it would be nice to have a fan header or two at the bottom of the board.
Overall Review: Right Angle Connectors! Having these right angle connectors makes wiring up a clean case so much easier. The build looks fantastic. Like everyone else will mention, No Chipset Fan! that is probably the main reason i bought this board. aside from the connectors i mentioned above It is truly a piece of art. this thing is beautiful.
Hindsight is 20/20
Pros: Great layout and feaures
Cons: No SLI Support
Overall Review: After reading reviews on this board I was sold on it. Read it was a very solid performer. What i didnt read about though, was that is only supports Crossfire, No SLI support here. If you want sli support go for the Z97x Killer/3.1
Pros: Very good quality card, runs great. I will not buy an nVidia card from any other manufacturer than EVGA. They have a great warranty, and their support, contrary to other's experiences is great.
Cons: Other than running a bit warm for my taste its great. I knew this before hand. Wish i had the cash for 2.
Overall Review: I ordered the backplate and high flow bracket from evga at the same time, and to my surprise, when i opened it the card already had the high flow bracket installed on it. had i known this, i would not have ordered the bracket. anyone else have this happen?
Pros: Did not buy this from newegg, but was fortunate to find it locally for the same price. Picture is simply amazing. I upgraded from an older gateway monitor with a 700:1 contrast ratio and this blows it away. I love the true 1080 resolution, and being LED backlit it really has a nice black level.
Cons: Could use another HDMI port / another DVI. Can always get a splitter i suppose. not sure if im crazy about the style of the stand. The assembly of the Ring Stand. any potential buyers read this. you have to remove a plastic piece on the back that covers the mount. Be very careful as i broke the piece on mine. after the stand is installed you can either put the plastic cover back on or leave it off. makes no difference. if you plan on going to alot of lan games you may want to leave it off if you plan on boxing up the monitor for transport.
Overall Review: The guy complaining about dead pixels swearing off asus needs to accept that not every monitor is going to arrive perfect. People get lemons, deal with it. I hope the rma goes well and you expeirence what this monitor truly has to offer.
