Pros: None

Cons: Failed after a month. Asus Q code 55.

Other Thoughts: I ordered a cheap stick of ram to see if that was the issue. Yes it was. I feel like i dumped a few $20's in the toilet.

ASUS ROG MAXIMUS VIII HERO LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Gaming Motherboard
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Overclocks

Cons: Where do i begin. It ran for like 2 weeks, i upgraded the PSU and then the problem started. Error code 55. I re seated the ram, made sure no pins bent (not sure how that could happen). Made sure the cooler wasn't over tightened. Tried the ram in different spots, tried just one. Finally contacted ASUS for RMA. Sent in on my dime and got it back after 2 weeks with same issue and no explanation of what they did and they didn't ship it back in the original box but some plain box.

Other Thoughts: I contacted them by phone and was told to try different ram. So i ordered a cheap stick of Crucial to try that. This Skylake build has been a nightmare. 2nd board with issues. Now over $400 in boards not sure i want to continue and might just stick with my reliable AMD build. I know one thing..i will never purchase a Skylake motherboard from ASUS again.

4 out of 5 eggs Rebate scam 11/26/2015

This review is from: MSI GeForce GTX 980TI 6GD5T OC

Pros: Pretty good card.

Cons: Runs hot but with afterburner it helps.

Other Thoughts: MSI denied my rebate saying i didn't include the invoice. Is this how they do business??? I know for a fact i sent it as i do for all rebates but i guess when comes to an amount more than $10 they flinch. I will seriously not buy any other product of theirs for this reason.
