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

 

Thinks he has a weeny worthy of war.

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:


Saleslady: Price check on industrial size econo pack of raw fiber.

Mr. Krabs: Ah, it goes in like steel wool, but comes out like an angel from heaven.

Saleslady: Please, tell me more.

Mr. Krabs: Ooh, well, this one time I...

Saleslady: Not really!
