Pros: converts mini-Display Port to Display Port
Other Thoughts: This worked as expected. I was a little hesitant to purchase this because alot of these adapters don't support 4k resolution. I own an ATI HD7990 with 4 mini display ports and the monitor I purchased had a full size display port. Well this thing makes it all happen. I was able to run my monitor at 3840x2160@60Hz no problem. If you're looking for an adapter that works this is it!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: "Nom nom nom nom nom" - The sound this thing makes as it devours any desktop application you throw at it.
Cons: Price - but you get what you pay for.
Other Thoughts: Probably one of the best processors I've ever owned. In the 3D Mark test paired with an ATI HD 7990 on stock settings it scored better than 93% of CPUs tested. This is one of the best gaming CPUs on the market currently.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It actually started working after the 5th BIOS flash via USB.
Cons: SERIOUS effort to even get this board to post with I7-3820 which is listed as being compatible upon the first released BIOS 0302... I guess my CPU falls under E series CPUs....which isn't compatible until the 4302 BIOS release.
Other Thoughts: For a $200+ board this thing should be preconfigured to run any current gen LGA 2011 CPU. I had to fight tooth and nail to even get this thing up and running. Every time the board would get to the BOOT Device LED and just sit... no post nothing. SO... what they don't tell you. You'll need to patch that BIOS one by one IN ORDER until you reach the 3XXX release of the BIOS. At that point you can upgrade to the newest release. It took me for ever to figure out that you need to patch the BIOS one by one in order of release. Upon the installation of 4302 the board finally posted. So be warned that you might be jumping through hoops to get this thing up and running with the limited documentation out there.
The sabertooh board I have is based on the same chip set and I never had to fight with it like I did with this board. I'm not going sit here and knock ASUS products because I do stand behind them and I've used them for years but this little guy actually put a wrench in it for once which I've never really had a problem with an ASUS board. None the less this board posted and is up and running using a i7-3820. Just expect a little work.
