Pros: Decent viewing angles. Good color, if tuned. Can't beat specs for sub-$150 category at 27" Average bezels, so don't expect it to be thin and you won't be disappointed.
The stand is fine. No dead pixels, so I guess I got lucky on "panel lottery". I believe the other reviews, but feel it's worth the gamble as their is always a chance when buying online as opposed to in-store to get better price/performance.
Cons: Color feels below average for TN panels. After tuning, slightly above at best, so be aware that the wash out is real, I belive this could be addressed if it wasn't such high contrast ratio. This the only reason for a 4egg rating, considering the price.
Other Thoughts: Overall really pleased at $144 OTD for size and specs. Just hoping it lasts for more than 2 years, and will definately report any evolving issues.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: COOLER MASTER R4-S2S-124K-GP 120mm Silent Case Fan
Pros: They spin for cheap, are barely adequate for a non over clocked system. I had an old case with noisy dying fans. They pushed twice as much air though.
Cons: Definitely don't push an acceptable amount of air, even at the price. Since they aren't PWM, you'll need to manually bios adjust speeds, and believe me you'll want do because they have a weird hum and and vibration pattern at or above 70% speed.
Other Thoughts: Just find a better $7 ish fan.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good board for the money.
Cons: BIOS interface can be buggy and not the most energy efficient overclocker. Also have had 3.0 front port usb consistancy and Sleep/Wakeup issues and it's not the connector as I have tried the board in multiple cases. Sometimes windows won't even detect the 3.0 ports upon a fresh boot up. I've tested using 4 different versions of drivers and the problem persists. Hoping the "changes USB function" note on the 1.60 BIOS addresses this. Keeping my fingers crossed and flash from 1.50 -> 1.60 tonight.
Other Thoughts: Overall pleased with this purchase as far as AMD boards go. However, I'm considering purchasing an M.2 SSD with NVME but can't tell if it will support some of the newer ones or boot from them etc.because the BIOS note and QVL lists on their site are very limited. The M.2 support list is always out of date. http://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/Fatal1ty%20990FX%20Killer/?cat=Storage
Unless they stop selling this board and EoL it out, they need to keep testing and showing "partial/full support" test results for hardware compatibility. Something that ASUS is always on top of.
