Good when working...

Michael D., Newegg
28 November 2010
  • Pros: Fast, cool, Great performance....
  • Cons: IT WAS CRASHING NON STOP....Come to find out (not with any help from ASUS support) there is a INTEL gigabyte network adapter on the MB. It was the problem, and Some independent guy had to create a stable driver for the LAN. ASUS still has on their web page the driver that is causing the crashes.

  • Excerpt: В принципе - НЕ доволен. Ужасный перегрев при небольших нагрузках - это никуда не годится. :( Зато на их фирменном диске сразу идет ролик о "необыкновенно эффективной" системе охлаждения заместо стандартных радиаторов на МВ.
  • Pros: Хороший набор для оверклокинга. Красиво, стильно, гибрид Nvidia & AMD. ROG.
  • Cons: Полунедотоп - это не топовое решение. :( ; Ужасно реализовано охлаждение северного моста, легко взлетает 80+ при работе 1х580GTX 3Gb и 2х6850HD 4Gb(топовые решения прошлого месяца). ; Плохая поддержка игр. В библиотеке нету новых игрушек, как у СЛИ или Кросфайр. ; нельзя выбрать отдельно SATA 1,2...
