Pros: fast cpu, good graphics card, 32 gig of RAM
Cons: Screen looks fuzzy like there's still of film of plastic. and the fact that one can't upgrade to more current nvidia drivers. Still have to use the one's that 6 months old.
Other Thoughts: Hate Windows 8. have already upgraded to 8.1 and it will run fine for several days and then go into a cycle of BSODs. Get BSOD, it restarts and gets a new BSOD. finally just have to turn the whole thing off. but that doesn't help eitherREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: areca ARC-1882ix-12-4G PCI-Express 3.0 x8 SATA / SAS 16-Port 6Gb/s RAID Adapter
Pros: Runs so smoothly don't even know its there. Setup was a fairly straight forward. Manual is invaluable. Been running a 6 disc RAID 10 + 1 spare for nearly a year. It is Hyper-V server running a Dev/Test network of 10 virtual Servers.
Cons: None really. Does take about 30 seconds for the raid to initalize during startup/reboot.
Other Thoughts: Will definitely buy againREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: A Well laid out Motherboard, plenty of connectors for whatever you want to do. A great board. Have had it since April last year and have not had a single problem. In the 10 yrs of buying Asus boards have only had 1 problem on the old P6 boards. Highly recomend this board.
Cons: fewer SATA II connectors and more SATA III with raid ability.
Other Thoughts: My big problem is with the included Asus software disc that is full of drivers and software to use with motherboard including the bluetooth and ASUS Suite. However, you can't install any of it on a Server OS without copying the disc to a hard drive and editing the config files. I mean Win7x64 and W2008R2 from a driver standpoint is identical and for software, it will install just fine. Just don't like having to take so much of my time when simply adding a couple of lines in the config files makes most of it work. Still can't the bluetooth drivers to install.READ FULL REVIEW
