Pros: 8 Sata 6gb connectors
nice stand-off connectors attaching all the case odds and ends (reset, power, hdd light etc)
Super BIOS management suite -- It's a joy to use and easy to understand with a fanspeed control utility built-in
Support overclocking nicely
Cons: Not a "bargain" board, but, you definitely get what you pay for.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Super airflow, great fans shipped with it, clean layout case, mounts water-cooling like it was made for it. By arranging all 3.5" internal bays to run perpendicular to the motherboard it allows easy tool-less mounting and clean cable runs for both power and data for these drives. I mounted a Corsair H100i water cooler in this and it was painless!! (I mounted fans to exhaust air from the case).
Cons: Larger than the cases from 10 years ago.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm
Pros: Quiet and cools like a beast
Cons: Instructions are good -- probably should point out to install back-bracket on motherboard prior to installing motherboard in case.
Other Thoughts: First-time water cooling. I have built several desktops before. Satisfying that it cools so well. My Intel i7 4770 3.4 Ghz runs stock at 78F -- basically 6F above the air conditioning -- now we can think about OC.READ FULL REVIEW
