Pros: It looks AWESOME! I got a new clear case just to see the thing. On board buttons for all the things. I didn't even plug it in to the case for the first month. BIOS flash and CMOS buttons on the board make it difficult to brick. Very handy when fighting an advanced persistant threat when the persistance can not be identified. Drive erase utility on the board is handy. ASUS actualy updates the BIOS pretty regularly. Has USB ports for days.
Cons: Big. Like really big. If your current full size mobo barely fits in the case, you will need another case. Could have more on board fan attachements. Placement of the USB ports for the case is just plain dumb unless you have USB ports at the bottom of your case.
Other Thoughts: I bought this case to examine an advanced persistant threat for a client. I bought it because it was the cheapest thing the retailer had with a reset CMOS button as the virus remained after a low level format. I even tried relacing the drives. Long story short, I was able to find the persistance after a dozen installs and CMOS resets. I was so impressed with the board I kept it for myself vs. expensing it and leaving it with the client.
Previously I had bought my motherboards by finding the cheapest board that met my requirements. After a few months with the ROG I'm never going back.
Also to the people that are complaining about the board not recognizing their whatever, RTeffenM! It's called a compatibility list. Your 4 year old ram probably won't work, nor your first gen SSD. It's a top tier board that requires top tier componets that are probably not on the Newegg e-blast newsletter.
Also be sure your chip ends with a K. K = unlocked. Overclocking doesn't work on non K chips. The board will let you overclock, the processor won't.
This review is from: Coboc 10 ft. Gold Plated, High Speed HDMI to HDMI A/V Cable (Black)
Pros: Cheap! I bought a dozen during a blowout sale. I've installed these in several friends and clients homes. Not 1 complaint. Allowed me to keep my margins high charging 15 bucks a cable
Cons: Wire is thin... Who cares? These things have been plugged and unplugged thousands of times and still work fine. Better than more expensive models I own for sure.
Other Thoughts: Cheap, effective, long, and durible. Buy a dozen and save! Going to buy these for as long as they are in stock.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Titan TTC-NA02TZ/RPW/CU30 95mm Z-AXIS Copper Cooler for socket 1150,1155 & 1156
Cons: Running about 4 degrees warmer than with original processor fan. Louder than OEM fan. Sticker is pretty ugly in illuminated case.
Other Thoughts: Bought this for a 3 year old i3 based computer that I refurbished. After testing I wound up leaving the original fan in. Tabs to insert it were wonky. It would seem like it was locked in, then when I gave it a tug it would fall out. If your fan is your computer is dead, this is a reasonably priced replacement, not by any means an upgrade.READ FULL REVIEW
