Pros: Fast boot times and shut down times. Files copy and transfer pretty fast. The Samsung software is nice. It has some optimization settings and a benchmarking tool. Random reads are about 72k iops. Random writes are around 70k or so. I replaced an aging 500gb hitachi spinner with this as my only drive. I may use the HDD again for storage.

Cons: I've read adding an ssd is like hitting your pc with nitrous. I'm not sure if i would go that far or not. Its more just like a intake and exhaust. (if you get the pun) You can tell a difference though for sure.

Other Thoughts: Maybe should have taken that 150 and put it toward a new gpu instead. My 6850 is getting old and a little behind. But just for blizzard games and swtor it does alright.

Pros: plugged this ram in and away we went. used it in a Ggiabyte UD3 for a minute and then switched to intel and now use it in a AsRock Extreme 4. Never had one problem in either setup.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Sometimes you can catch this on sale. If your in the market for ram this is the way to go.

Pros: Great motherboard with a decent bios setup. Bios is easy to navigate, has plenty of options and is overall easy to use. This motherboard does not feel any more beefy or flimsy than the Gigabyte UD3 that I had before switching to intel. Has plenty of outputs for whatever your heart desires.

Cons: Only after I overclocked my i5-3570k to 4.4ghz The bios would freeze every so often. now that I have the cpu dialed in and stable though I dont mess with it hardly.

Other Thoughts: Besides the little bios thing this is a great motherboard to have. I will definitely go with AsRock again when it comes time to upgrade to bigger and better things.
