Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 27 April 2013
Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, loads of USB and SATA connectors (including USB 3 & SATA 6), automatic overclocking AND energy saving (by Mobo switches + Bios settings), excellent build quality, with a superb Bios which is incredibly user-friendly. What more could you ask? I am using this with an Intel 3rd Generation Core i7-3770K CPU (4 x 3.50GHz, Ivy Bridge, Socket 1155, 8Mb L3 Cache, Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0),Corsair 16GB 1600MHz CL10 DDR3 Vengeance Memory Kit,Sapphire 11199-20-20G AMD Radeon HD 7870 XT 2GB GDDR5 Graphics Card (HDMI, DVI-I, 2 x Mini Display Port, PCI Express 3.0, 256-Bit, AMD CrossFireX Multi-GPU Technology),Samsung 840 Series 250GB 2.5 inch SATA Solid State Drive Full Upgrade Kit, and a WD Caviar Green 2TB SATA 6Gbps Power Saving Internal Hard Drive OEM. The result is an astonishingly fast system. Three tips: 1. The instructions advise you to install the Wi-Fi module after you have installed the Mobo in your case. This is crazy, because the Wi-Fi module is attached to the Mobo by a screw which screws in UNDERNEATH the Mobo, which is, of course, impossible once the Mobo is mounted in the case. Install the Wi-Fi module BEFORE you mount the Mobo in your case. 2. If you're using a large video card like the Sapphire in the first PCIe 3.0 slot, it is essential that you insert all your SATA cables BEFORE you install the video card, as the card overhangs the SATA ports. 3. If you're using an SSD for speed plus an HDD for storage, I wouldn't bother with ASUS' bios-based SSD caching system (which prevents you using your SSD for anything other than a cache). I would suggest you simply install Windows and all your programs on the SSD, and install My Documents and all your user folders on the HDD.
