Pros: Small and light considering how powerful it is
Screen displays fantastic colors
Fast GPU and CPU
Super easy to remove bottom cover and swap ram, repaste, or replace hard drives
Works well with oculus rift ( but uses all 3 USB ports and HDMI)

Cons: not quite as fast as my overclocked 980ti/6700k desktop, but good enough to game comfortably on-the-go
Could use one more USB port, as connecting the oculus rift uses all the available ports

Other Thoughts: Max GPU temp of 76c in timespy (scored 3560), 75c in firestrike (scored 9603).
Max CPU temp of 82c in intelburntest
Mine was received with hynix 2133 DDR4 and 7200RPM hitachi 1tb drive
CPU and GPU heatsinks are connected via heatpipes, so it doesn't allow for individual temp control

Pros: Decent price for a midrange z77. Good bios. No issues with any of my hardware.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I was just recently emailed regarding the acceptance of my rebate (submitted less than a month ago). I have never had a problem with ASUS rebates. You just have to follow their very convoluted instructions to a T.

Pros: Undervolts well for mining. Good resolution and FPS for gaming. Core is overclocked just a little.

Cons: still way over the intended MSRP

Other Thoughts: The altcoin market drove the price of these cards up. I hope it's a hot summer.
