Reused on my new Gigabyte X99 Gaming G1 WiFi on a Intel i7-5960x. Fits with GPU (EVGA Titan Super Clocked w/ back plate) in slot 1 after bending the fan spring clips flat next to the GPU without touching.
Cons: I have low dollar Crucial memory which fits fine under the cooler right now. Will just have to be sure to get low profile memory when upgrading.
Other Thoughts: After reading somebody's suggestion here, I have the 2 fans on the OUTSIDE of the fin towers blowing in instead of one fan blowing the heat from one tower into the other tower. The case fans blow the heat upwards through the middle of the towers. Works great! The X99 motherboard has 2 CPU fan headers and I have each fan on it's own header.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: USB 3.0 works with my Gigabyte X79 and X99 motherboards
Cons: eSATA DOES NOT work with my Gigabyte X79 and X99 motherboards. Works fine with my older XFX 790i Ultra motherboard.
Other Thoughts: I don't see a firmware upgrade on the Rosewill website. So I guess this product is now obsoleteREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Flight Simulator X bursting up to 225 Frames Per Second at maximum settings and I didn't even overclock. I haven't seen the FPS drop below 80. I was watching the Task Manager and there is activity on all 16 of the CPU Usage History on the Performance tab. This game has always been a stuttering annoyance, but I am quite pleased.
Cons: Windows Experience Index fails to run from what I understand is due to the CPU cache larger then 15mb but there is a hotfix for it. I'm having too much fun to care at the moment to fix it.
Other Thoughts: Mounted to a Gigabyte X99 Gaming G1 and a couple of EVGA Titan Super-Clocks thrown in on Windows 7 Ultimate. Last computer I will ever need.READ FULL REVIEW
