Pros: Great speeds, good Linux support, low power consumption.
Cons: Not a whole lot I can complain about. It only supports 2 antennas so if you were using a 3 spatial stream setup before, you might lose out on some speed.
Other Thoughts: I bought it to replace an Intel 4965 card in an x300 since the 4965 has poor Linux support. This card has much better Linux support and uses noticeably less power.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good price
Worked the first time with most drives I tried
Cons: Some WD drives weren't recognized at first. I had to roll up some paper and stick it between the door and the drive in order to push the drive a little further in so that it would make better contact with the connector
Other Thoughts: Using this with a PERC 5/i on a desktop. The desktop is already pretty loud, so the fan noise isn't an issue.
Also, sometimes the doors won't latch at first if the adjacent doors are also open. Make sure it is centered, as this happens because the door isn't lined up with where the latch grabs the side.
Pros: Good RAM
Decent for overclocking
Runs very cool
Cons: The heatsink design. I hope the chips are held on very well, because I have heard about people who push down on the heatsinks to install the RAM and it ends up ripping the chips of the PCB. Hope that doesn't happen.
Other Thoughts: Will probably buy 6GB more of this for my workstation for a total of 12GBREAD FULL REVIEW
