Cons: These drives are absolute garbage. I've had them for 4 months and they're already starting to get corrupt data on them and just all around act stupid.
Other Thoughts: Stay away! Spend the extra few bucks and get a decent SSD!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Bought some of these for my MSI x58 Pro board (bought 3 of them, so a total of 48gb) and it works great!

This review is from: MSI X58 Pro LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Great board for long runs, supports up to 48gb of ram! (6x8gb sticks)
Cons: IOH runs hot, that's a known thing though
Other Thoughts: Bought this board a few years ago, always had just 12gb of ram in it. Wanted to upgrade, but 24gb didnt seem like enough. (This has since become my server/buildbox machine) I read online that many people have had success running with 48gb of ram on the x58 (its actually the cpu that has to support this) so I gave it a try. Bought 6x8gb sticks of Corsair XMS DDR3 1600 and slapped them in. All is running well for several days now without an issue.
I know this board is discontinued, but I wanted to share my experience here for those who still rock this thing and want to upgrade the ram.
