Pros: Super Fast at everything you do. My PC multitasks like you cannot believe
Other Thoughts: I put it on water with a Cooler Master Seidon 240M. 4.5 ghz is super stable.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Looks great, runs fast and stable, easily overclockable
Cons: Killer NIC and Soundblaster are not really that much better than what you typically find with built in NICs and sound.
Other Thoughts: I don't like the new mouse-able BIOS's but that just may be me being old. I thought I would but I don't. BIOS flash it and download the NIC drivers before you load Windows. Win8 does not have a driver for the Killer NIC. This is not a full fledged Killer NIC. It's just a regular NIC with a QoS at the application level. When I tried using it, my pings went up by about 10ms so I quit using it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I love my Cooler Master Seidon 240M. It idles silent and it takes a pretty hefty CPU load to get it to spin up loud enough to hear it. It keeps my i7 4770k nice and cool. My temps are usually around 30C. Installation was not terrible. I have it in a Corsair 600T and that required it to be in a pull configuration but so far I have not seen any drawbacks to that.
Cons: The blue LED cannot be turned off and the hose length could have been just a bit longer. Those are really minor complaints though.
Other Thoughts: I like this a lot better than the tower cooler on my last rig.READ FULL REVIEW
