Pros: None at this point. I can't get to BIOS :(
Cons: No HDMI signal. Tried the usual thing of trying to get it to POST with a single stick of known good memory and a keyboard and nothing else. Fans spin, and I don't get trouble beeps but no HDMI signal and no power to keyboard. Blah.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill RK-9000BR - Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Brown Switches
Pros: None. Was saving it for a build I was doing. Dead within 3 days. What a waste of money. Second Rosewill keyboard this has happened to.
Cons: No pros.
Mini USB contact broke within 3 days of use. Opened it up and tried the super glue mod to get the contacts to touch but no dice. Looks like the problem is more severe than that.
Looking at the circuit board shows a bad re-solder job: looks like the contact was re-soldered BADLY. I've ordered the version with Cherry Reds before, and this same problem happened though I was able to fix it. Looks like this one is just dead though.
Cons: Don't buy this card. I've been having intermittent problems with this thing ever since I got it. Usually you can attribute crashes to the fault of the application, or memory, but in this case its definitely this card.
I get multiple 'black screens' at intermittent times where the card simply fails to output a video signal and the audio goes into a loop. You can google this card (9600 GT) and 'problems' if you want and see that there is a fairly large bug associated with it. I stuck with it because it happened rarely, but don't be fooled- it gets progressively worse until this thing is basically a brick.
Wish I had the sense to avoid this thing before I bought it.
