Pros: It works. Allows you to overclock. Has some pretty good features.
Cons: Tiny and not too well designed. The CMOS battery is right under the topmost PCI-E slot, meaning you will have to take out your video card just to clear the CMOS. The BIOS DOES NOT allow you to change the voltages for the CPU. I don't know by how much or if this will limit my overclocking headroom, but this board doesn't even allow you to tweak the voltage in the BIOS. My old AM3 ASUS board which was $30 cheaper actually had CPU voltage settings for overclocking...
Other Thoughts: I bought this motherboard with a Core i5-2500K for a good price and hoped to hit 4.8 GHz with it... Looks like I'll need to upgrade to a new board just to do that...READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: RAIDMAX RX-450K Continuous 450 watts ATX 12V v2.3/EPS 12V Power Supply
Pros: Ran fine for a year with an Athlon II X3 450 and an XFX Radeon HD 5770. I recently upgraded the CPU to a Core i5-2500K and this thing is still working with the CPU and video card at stock.
Cons: Not enough watts or amps to last through a few upgrades. I have the fear that one day this power supply will die and possibly take my other parts with it since it has failed on others with parts with similar or higher power requirements to mine.
Other Thoughts: It came with my case as part of a combo with my old CPU. Would not recommend buying this power supply if you plan to overclock a 95+ W CPU and have a video card that has this power supply as its minimum requirement like I do. I would go with a good Antec, Corsair, or Seasonic (there's also other good brands out there) for that.READ FULL REVIEW
