Pros: 144 Hz
No dead or stuck pixels
Great mounting mechanism
Overall amazing monitor
Cons: Takes about 2 seconds slower to come on from display turning off
One of the touch button's don't work for some reason? But I'm using the control module that comes with it(High suggested as it is so much faster to go through the menu)
Overall Review: Gave it a 5 egg because lets face it, BenQ + 144Hz + Amazing build quality(Minus one of the touch buttons) = the best gaming experience.
Pros: Quality... minus the water block.
Cons: Why an ALU water block? Did you guys intend to ruin people's system? This just made me regret buying this motherboard so hard. It wasn't mentioned anywhere except through Q&A's through the forums. Why would you do this to your fan base.
Sure you can just air cool, but one of the main focal points of this motherboard was its integrated VRM Liquid Cooler.... I'm glad I was able to see the other review in which stated this. Thank you for that random person.
Overall Review: I gave it 3 eggs because well.. the board itself is amazing. I'm still a fan... but very disappointed.
Pros: Noticeable faster then my 8150 FX@4.5GHz
Right now running at 4.5GHz @ 1.29v
Gained like 10-20% more FPS in all of my games(No bull)
Temps are a lil higher then my old AMD but that's just the way it is if you want performance
Idles around 35c~ max loads around 70-78c~
Overall got a decent chip
I've heard of worse
Cons: None at the moment, Would like to try some more voltage and reach 4.6ghz
Overall Review: This is my first intel chip and I've been converted.
Thing is fast benchmarks well and increases fps in all of my games.
Pros: Color is red
Cons: Wrapped in plastic "stitching". Harder to bend etc. I'd say go for the silverstones, they are much higher quality but more expensive.
Overall Review: Still does the job, no doubt about that.
Pros: Great material. Cloth wrapped and easy to bend/contort. Good length
Overall Review: Pay a little more for better quality!
Pros: Airflow is amazing in this thing. Looks rediculously sexy. Nice inside layout. Overall an amazing case!
Cons: Gotta put some elbow grease into getting the side and front panel off.
Will end up weighing about 70+ lbs when you're done with everything.
Overall Review: Do you even lift? Yes, but still save yourself some trouble by putting on the wheels too.
Pros: Not DOA. Gives my system life.
Cons: None ATM
Pros: Cooled very well with 3 fans. More quiet than I expected. Factory overclocked(more stable I figure).
Cons: None at the moment. Did blue screen once when bringing core clock to 1250 and mem clock to 1300 but i guess thats just my own experiment :).
Pros: Just got them in and plugged them up. Went to bios, set timings for 2133mhz 11-11-11-28 tRc=39 CR=1T. Loaded up fast and very stable. Awesome memory.
41$ free shipping was a steal.
Cons: none at the moment
Pros: Overclocks easily. Very stable.
Overall Review: Amazing bang for the buck. Used for about a year now. Just upgraded to an fx 8350. Will be giving this to my friend.
Pros: Nice packaging
Cons: 1 of the screen protectors had some white waves on it already before I even opened it
Screen protector does not cover the whole screen(important to protecting the screen from shattering if dropped)
Overall Review: waste of 7$
Pros: Great ram, good looks, nice amount for the price.
Cons: Advertised as 1600, came 1333.
Overall Review: They should really update the description.
