Other Thoughts: Update to prior review. One of the push pins was not in all the way resulting in a higher than normal temp. Found this when I was installing a Hyper 212 EVO. AMD secures their coolers far better than Intels push pin setup. Temps get no higher than 132 F momentarily now. I still stand by my opinions in the earlier review. The stock cooler/fan still runs too hot for normal computing and is a joke for such a high performing cpu. I am not overclocking anything, especially on this board.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Really speeds things up for less than an SSD.
Cons: No longer made.
Other Thoughts: Of coarse, when something this good comes out, it is only for a short time. The replacement is only 5600 rpm, which robs it of its edge. Better then to go with a traditional HD at 7200 rpm.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very well made, fired up no problem. Boots up really quick. Good price.BIOS shipped on this board is F14.
Cons: Could have used 2 or 3 sata 6.0 ports instead of one(the one is poorly labeled), some cooling on the power chips only 1 fan connector, the mix of straight and 90 degree sata ports,
Other Thoughts: Running Win 7 and an i5 3570k cpu. I may go with a higher end board when prices drop. I still don't see any reason for the higher prices of Intel products, other than greed. Fedex SmartPost should be renamed FedexTakesForeverPost. I had to go over to the dark side once just for curiosities sake. I still don't see the benefit of Intel products unless you are a high end gamer.( or a stock holderREAD FULL REVIEW
