Pros: Its a monster of a case with a ton of HD mounts, im looking to make a NAS setup , tons of expansion in this case, water cooling would be very easy and it would still be very roomy for more cards and HD/drive's, lots of ventilation, did i mention its huge? solid construction and it even looks good.
Cons: sadly not big enough where i can move out of my apartment and move into it. almost!
Other Thoughts: could be a monster case... for pretty much anything, i can see this as a liquid cooling monster rig case easy, or since its rather cheap could build a monster Plex or NAS rig with all that space for HD's and still install a slurpee maker.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: thrown pretty much whatever i wanted to play at it and it runs it in high or ultra settings, had it for a year now, still no issues never gets hot and stay quiet, really cant ask for much more.
Cons: haven't had any, none.
Other Thoughts: not the highest end card, but runs my entire steam, blizzard, origins Library, and everything else i've tryed on it, all in very high settings or maxxed out, thats all i wanted, and i got it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: well, its running. ill give it 2 eggs for booting right up, just one major flaw.....
Cons: Cannot allocate ram in bios on a APU a8-660... so basically for a board that says its for the apu market its junk, completely worthless for a apu build. for anything else other then that im sure its a solid little board, so id buy a cpu and a dedicated graphics card for this board if your gunna use it in a build, cause you wont be able to do much in the way of tweaking a a8-6600 at all. I have a a10-6800k in my other system on a biostar ta-970 and it runs very well and I can allocate ram on that, should have bought one of those, as it is now since I build this thing on a whim I suppose ill just buy a graphic's card for it, but I shouldn't have had to.
cant say much on build quality either, as I was re-routing some cables the neat little blue grasp for the usb 3 onboard plug desided to come off with the cord, didn't break or bend the pins so its working, but not something you like to see when your building anything that parts pull right off that should be attached :( It is working im writing this review on it, but very disappointed, was my xmas gift for myself for the rec room in the basement to play some ultra off ste@m in the basement. no allocated ram = very sub par performance on that benchmark :(
Other Thoughts: I suppose I just assumed that since it was a apu board id have no problems setting up the 8 gigs of Kingston ram for the apu, guess its a live and learn.READ FULL REVIEW
