Wow that is one hell of a board lol.

 

I am a bit biased towards maximus boards as i have great experiences with them, so i didn't expect anything less from ASUS.


You can get the weeny out of the war, but you cannot get the war out of the weeny

Rest in peace my good old gtx 480, you deserved it

I have always been an ROG fan. 

 

I don't have any tattoos, but I might just have start off with a nice ROG tattoo somewhere...  :whistling:
