Pros: It works. Overclocks from 2.4ghz to 2.7ghz without any problems.
Cons: I got 2x 1024 corsair 800's (4-4-4) and decided to go to 4GB... would not detect the full 4GB (in 32-bit XP), and when I did a fresh install of XP 64-bit it was not stable at all. Ran latest BIOS, latest drivers, etc. Others have this problem, check the forums.....
Summary: Running in NZXT zero full tower, 2 x 7950GTX in SLI, E6700 core 2 duo (The original version), 2GB Corsair PC6400 800ghz low latency ram, 2 x 320GB Seagate Barracuda drives. Working great for 1 year.
Pros: I have to agree with the previous reviewer. I bought this board in the early days after it's release 1 year ago. This board is great! After approx. 1 year I have had zero problems. This is the best board I have ever owned and I love it!
Cons: None, except as I noted on my original review approx. 1 year ago, with 2 Nvidia 7950GTX cards in SLI, 2 of the adjacent PCI slots were blocked. This is mainly dues to oversized card design, and a slight board reconfig could probably fix that. Small price to pay for the performance gain.
Summary: The STRIKER mainboard has probably been the most challenging board I've used simply because of the wiring. The board has so much stuf, channelling the wiring so that it looks like a Voodoo job was a challenge. Out of context here but the placement of the SATA ports were a pain.
Pros: The last three reviews made me have to write this review; I don't normally take time to do this. I am a Porfessional computer guy for 22 years. These last 3 reviews are obviously coming from computer hacks who have a very low understanding of Finesse when dealing with mainboards. I have seen so m...
Cons: ASUS pro boards are for professionals. You must have a high mechanical ability with lots of finesse. If you don't have it, don't use the top boards.
Summary: Save yourself time grief and money and get another MB.
Pros: It is nice when it works, which was three months and two RMA's ago.
Cons: I have never had a MB die on me let alone two die in a sigle month. The first one I bought came with a bum bios chip. After spending two days on the phone with asus they sent me a new chip. That worked for around a year. Then it inexplicable stopped powering on I sent it back to Asus... Three wee...
