They are the same price as the normal one but with higher speed since it's not limited by the SATA port's maximum speed.
If you want to get one now it's the time, it's on sale for 219$ on newegg.
It's an ASUS program that boost the power output from USB ports to charge your devices faster.
I know it looks like a 3 year old made this but that's the actual ASUS site.
None of the problem you mentioned so far. The only thing i found dissapoinging was the "Supreme FX Audio" which is okay. If you so happen to have AI charger your in for a threat, after 3h your audio will start getting worst and worst. The only way to fix it is to restart the PC or uninstalling AI charger. If u can live without it then your fine.
It comes with the drivers make sure you uninstall it if your getting it.
Don't worry there is no twist ties anywhere near the motherboard or other components. I know they look bad but you don't really see them since they are behind the case. But i'll take your suggestion and switch them with zip ties when i am done with the sleeving.
Apparently, I was hitting 68-79C on idle. I am getting that under 100% load on 4,9.
If i go back to 5,3. I'll need to find another way to cool my PC presto!
I don't know, for me it shows 390.
Not at all, I don't hear any noticeable noise from the pump. For these fans i start noticing them at 1,350RPM. At there max(2,100RPM) it's like being in a plane sitting next to the wings. Only thing i can hear sometimes is, i guess bubbles going thru the rad but i fix it by barely tapping the rad. Should be a temporary thing, i don't remember last time i heard it.
Also i tried letting the fans at 500RPM for a few minutes and my temps were at 21C, Switched it on max and it was still on 21C. That's on 4.90 OC.
Yeah it's not a light weight card, I have no idea how i'm going to support it but i'll find a way(It looks worst then it is). For cable management i personally use twist ties since they are re-usable and i don't have to play surgeon simulator and try not to cut a cable when i need to move something. I know the PSU cables don't look pretty right now but that's because i need to sleeve my 12 pin connector so i'll be messing with that soon.
I was going with a Red, Gray and black theme, for me this was an obvious choice. it's advertised as one of the best OC boards and comes with a lot of features.
