Pros: 2 years old and it'll still run just about anything on max settings without much trouble. It's starting to show it's age a bit in really high end recent releases but still an incredibly powerful card two years down the road.
Cons: I can't complain too much since I've had the card for two years and it operated pretty flawlessly in that time. Unfortunately, it looks like I may need to move on soon. In recent weeks, the fans have become incredibly loud drowning out every other component in my PC and even forcing me to turn my speakers way up in an attempt to block out the outrageous noise. The loud, irritating hum of the fans is an absolute constant at this point. The card does not need to be under any strain at all. Even with nothing but the Windows 7 desktop loaded with no PC activity at all the fans are going full-bore and running ridiculously loud.
From what I've read it appears this was somewhat of a common issue with these cards. It's both a blessing and a curse, I went two years with no such issue but now that the card is well out of any type of warranty the issue has appeared and there is not much I can do besides suck it up and buy a new video card. The sound is unbearable. I've contemplated pulling the card out and just running with the integrated graphics until I can afford a new one. It's that bad.
Pros: For $30, you really can not complain about this set. It is not going to blow you away or anything but for this price you shouldn't expect it to.
If you're just looking for a cheap set of speakers to get the job done or hold you over until you have the money to invest in something better then you really can't go wrong.

This review is from: Foxconn Inferno Katana LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: First off, let me start by saying that this is by far, without question the sexiest looking motherboard I have ever seen. I put it in a CoolerMaster Storm Scout case and it looks incredible. The red & black coloring looks great in the case and all the lights and LEDs on the board really look phenominal through the side panel window at night. Everyone that has seen my computer had the same look of astonishment at how good everything looks.
Functionally, what is there to say? It booted up first try and I have zero complaints so far. Obviously time will tell but I am extremely satisfied so far.
Cons: Nothing yet.
Other Thoughts: I also got a CoolerMaster V8 aftermarket cooler which, in conjunction with the Knight Rider-style LED lights on this board makes my computer look like you could strap a set of tires to it and drive it down the street.READ FULL REVIEW
