Pros: Booted up immediately with i7 5930k and 16 gb of G.Skill 3000 MHz memory. Running 4.5 Ghz and 3 MHz on Ram and is running very stable.
Cons: Wired/Wireless Connectivity. Wired worked with Windows 8. Installed 8.1 the Ethernet driver will not work and still have not found a work around. Has Wireless-AC connectivity however steaming seems to have problems. Streaming 1440p and 2160p (4k) is getting a lot of lag and will not even play the video.
Raid configuration only supports 4 hard disks. Not a major concern but I was originally going to run three different raid arrays to have separate storage drives for OS, Games, Media.
If you use 4 PCI-E x16 ports you will not be able to use the M.2 port as it will be deactivated to service you 4th PCI-E x16
Other Thoughts: Overall this Board is quite good and the only really problem is the Internet connections would love to have a work through for that.

This review is from: WD My Cloud 2TB Personal Cloud Storage WDBCTL0020HWT-NESN
Pros: Cloud Idea is great.
Cons: Functionality. Like I stated the cloud idea is great and it provide access to the device on gaming systems and pc. But data transfer to this device is Terrible. I have the previous generation Airport extreme and it take over and hour to transfer a 4 GB file to this hard drive. I have about 500GB of movies and pictures to put on here but at that rate it would take what over 5 days to transfer everything to the device. NOT GONNA HAPPEN. If your gonna make it a cloud device great. But at least make it capable of being connected to the computer so you can load data at 3.0 speeds (50-100 MBS) then be able to use it as a cloud device because you dont need to transfer data more than 10 MB a second for video playback. This is going to sit and be useless now.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This card is amazing, I upgraded from a GTX 580 that I have run for two years, ran DX 11 heaven benchmark before swapping cards one card was 100% faster than the 580 and SLi'd the cards were 300% faster. Battlefield 3 in 3d runs great at 1920 x 1080, nothing slows these cards down. Black Ops 2 never glitches.
Cons: I'm gonna say price but as the saying goes you get what you pay for.
Other Thoughts: My system
