Pros: Great speeds and a great amount of memory to do just about anything. From gaming to running virtual machine servers working on image editing with very large files and you can do those all concurrently with the proper processor. The fans are easy to set up and look great (looks really nice with an X99 Classified as it fits the color motif and also serves to keep the sticks much cooler so the lifespan is not as short since you have to up the voltage to 1.3v to get the XMP profile to work).
Cons: Only con I can think of is the price but that is of course not anything to warrant taking an egg off the review or even sway anyone else away from buying it. You of course want to take cost into consideration when buying anything and this is no different.
Other Thoughts: This amount of RAM is not really practical and probably about 5% or less of people out there that are looking to get a personal rig would need this much (depends on what you are going to do of course). Take that into consideration when buying (no brainer but I feel as though that needs to be put out there). If your situation does indeed call for this amount of ram though, then do not hesitate and buy.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Really like the black and red color. Great support for all sorts of coolers. Updated this to firmware v1.19 as soon as I got it and had no problems getting my memory to 2666Mhz with the XMP profile at 1.3v. Great board for gaming and even better for productivity such as handling lots of large photos and processing very high quality videos (if you have the proper processor of course).
Cons: The only con I have on this board is the right angled USB3.0 header that is near the bottom right corner of the board (it's in the bottom right corner if you are looking at it top-down with the Sata ports facing the right). This made it so that I could not use the port with my Corsair Carbide 540 case, though this was more my fault as that was an oversight on my end so it is not enough to knock an egg off but right angled USB headers usually are not that great either.
Other Thoughts: As with any board make sure that you check the boards approved manufacturer list for memory. I did not have a problem with mine but some forget this. Also make sure that if you plan to occupy all 8 Dim slots make sure to get the quad channel kits that come with 8 sticks as getting 2 sets of four won't be the same (manufacturers will put together kits of ram that they know all play nicely together, separate kits cannot be guaranteed when put together).READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Corsair Hydro Series H110i GTX 280mm Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
Pros: Very easy to install, instructions were actually pretty clear (it's surprising as a lot of products have instructions that are pretty lacking).
Keeps my Core i7 - 5930k at about 32C at idle on an OC to 4.5Ghz. And this is with switching the fans to non static pressure fans (wanted LED lights :P).
Cons: None really that I can think of. I know other reviews say that Corsair Link is a con as it is not very functional but I am not using that so I cannot say whether or not this is the case.
Other Thoughts: As with getting any closed system liquid cooler like this make sure that your case can support it. If your case has support for 2 side by side 140x25mm fans then it should be able to support this cooler.READ FULL REVIEW
