5 out of 5 eggs 2nd day review 12/19/16 -- will change review if problems every occur 12/19/2016

This review is from: ASUS ROG MAXIMUS VIII RANGER LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: -BIOS has easy control system for all external modules such as fans and temp sensors
-Board layout is easy to work with. Everything is clearly labeled on the PCB to modify settings in BIOS
-Unlike other reviewers, no DDR4 issues whatsoever

Cons: None I can think of

Other Thoughts: I purchased this board as a bundle with the i7-6700k 4GHz and 16GB G.SKILL RAM found below. I saw some reviewers talking about DDR4 compatibility, but I have zero issues.

5 out of 5 eggs Amazing Case, excellent customer serivce 12/19/2016

This review is from: Fractal Design Define XL R2 Titanium Silent EATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: Case:
-Build is solid, all round
--HDD/SSD trays are all metal, not plastic
--Fans are all ultra silent. Just shy of inaudible
--All hardware mounting and cable routing is top notch

Overall: This was my second full build, first being Antec Nine Hundred Black Mid ATX. I had a few issues with that case in terms of cable management and mounting HDD's and SSD was a pain. Occasionally required additional hardware.
I HAD THE BEST EXPERIENCE BUILDING WITH THIS CASE. All HDD/SSD mounting was seamless with no additional hardware needed. The back panel cable routing area keeps my case looking near cable-less from the front. Mounting my motherboard, PSU, additional 140mm fans was quick and easy.

If you want a no-hassle build and a silent air filter system, buy this case!

Cons: The case arrived with one faulty foot (which suspends the case for filtered air intake on the bottom). Please read my "Other" section for a follow up to this.

Other Thoughts: --Fractal's excellent customer service--

When my case came with a broken foot, I called the Fractal at the number provided with the case for a replacement. They misunderstood my issue and believed I had broken the foot. They ended up having me pay $7 to ship a replacement foot.

When they emailed me later asking how my service was, I replied I was disappointed about having to pay for the shipping costs, which they then informed me the charge was a mistake. As they couldn't refund me a USPS charge, they instead sent a full set of case feet and an additional $15 case fan.

I get the full impression that Fractal cares about its customers and I would definitely buy from them in the future.
