Our unit has 16 of these and they all work very well as of right now. Fast, dual display port outs on the motherboard, US 3 front headers and they are dead silent

Excellent - blue tooth capable ( built in ) awesome addition
Everything was as it should be. Great performance, beautiful case. Runs most games at ultra settings 1080p) with no problems at all
