Pros: I originally believed this was an excellent board flaunting Japanese caps... I was so wrong.
First board ended up getting stuck in a constant boot loop/no post a couple months after it was deployed. I RMA'ed: corrupted bios (Dual BIOS I guess isn't working?); Gigabyte opted to reflash the BIOS, I trusted them. The board then sat on the shelf for about 2 years up until I deployed it a couple months ago. The RMA board worked for a month then started boot looping again. Now Gigabyte won't fix it.
The spare board was from a competitor brand. It is still working and was cheaper.
Each time the boards were tried with known working PSUs (3); cpus (2) and ram (3 from different branded vendors)
Cons: Gigabyte support is slow; the reps aren't knowledgeable. The RMA work isn't thorough.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: A good drive that gets the job done with 0 fuss. It's relatively quiet and short. The led is a nice green color that isn't too bright.
I have always had good drives from Lite On, Plextor and Pioneer.
Cons: None whatsoever.
Other Thoughts: This is an OEM drive so don't expect screws or a SATA cable. (retail cases come with the screws and retail motherboards come with cables)READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Enermax ETS-N30-HE Black 92mm Twister CPU Cooler with High Performance PWM Fan
Pros: Excellent cooling capabilities with sturdy mounting bracket. Fan wires are sleeved, quality feel to the entire package.
Got my rebate quickly!
Cons: Not really a con but you can hear the wind noise from the fan at full tilt.
Other Thoughts: This is the best cooler under 30$.
My g3258 @ 4.5ghz runs nice and cool. Was hitting 86C on the stock cooler and with this I don't break 70. (I used Diamond7 paste)
