Pros: Aluminum heat spreaders dissipate any heat very effectively.
Coating and color look amazing
Very stable at 3200 speeds using proper timings. Motherboard did not pick up the maximum speed for these but a simple BIOS change fixed the issue. (Note: Did a test with the default timings, and there was really no difference in speed)
Never had a failure with Corsair ram.
FYI new DOOM with nVidia 970 and these chips looks amazing.
Other Thoughts: Corsair is making so many nice products that the my entire rig is basically Corsair due to their great quality and detail to workmanship.
Tried to OC these chips for giggles with limited success. Increasing voltage slightly did help, but did not notice a speed difference so decided to step them back to the rated timings for stability.

Pros: Love the large storage capacity for all my games including Steam library, Origin, and emulators.
Thing I noticed with a standard 7200rpm Sata3 2TB HD is that the games I played regularly were very slow to start up and this SSHD does really help when playing the same game regularly. Keyword is regularly.
Ex: H1Z1 took lest than 30 seconds to load on the SSHD while the the standard drive was over a minute.
Battlefield 4 was more than twice as fast using the SSHD.
Very quiet, don't hear the clicking that others commented on.
Cons: not 100% solid state but that's the compromise
Other Thoughts: As stated before the solid state part of the drive does not help people that are constantly changing what they are doing, but rather helps when you play a game over and over or accesses a repetitive task on the HD.
I would definitely recommend this drive over a standard HD for performance in general. The cost of 4TB is in solid-state with a good rating is still overpriced for the performance increase.
Pros: Able to over clock almost a full Ghz more with Asrock board and it's still stable. Sure a savvy person could get more out of it, but it works great for gaming on the latest titles.
Cons: noneREAD FULL REVIEW
