Pros: Got it, put it together and haven't had too many issues. I haven't built a computer in a few years so diving into the new intel processors took a little relearning. Raids were easy to setup and use, ram has to be configured manually to run at 2133 which was really easy to use. Board came installed with the latest bios update so it really was plug and play on everything.
Cons: The sata slots are difficult to get to if you have to make an adjustment after installing your video card. Could have used one more USB attachment so I could use an added media card reader. Video card spacing could really use some rethinking. If you are running SLI why would you have such a large gap between your two cards and eliminate the ability to add say a decent video card. I get it for video temps but a properly built case can compensate for two large video cards against each other.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: So far I love the processor. I don't have anything negative to day about it. Can take anything I throw at it without even blinking an eye.
Cons: You will need to buy a really cool cooler. I have the H100i and it manages to keep it under 60c. I can't imagine how hot it would be running with an air cooler.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Small, usb powered, came bundled with blu-ray software
Cons: While it worked amazing for the first few months, today it failed. I was moving music to my computer via iTunes, disc ejected waiting for the next one, put the next disc in and got nothing. Plugged it into 3 other computers and used 2 different cables. Status light blinks for half a seconds then nothing. Won't eject, no noise. Nothing. Kinda sucks.READ FULL REVIEW
