Pros: Holds Two Drives, Has lights, USB 3.0
Cons: Doesn't work well with Window
Other Thoughts: This product seemed to not work from the get-go. I originally couldn't get it to work with Windows until I fiddled with turning the power off, unplugging the drive, and alternating USB 3.0 ports. After doing this for about 30 minutes I finally was able to find a combination of whatever I had done that allowed a drive to mount. I thought all was well... until I restarted my PC a few days later and had to go through this process again. I brought this device to work to use with my laptop, which happens to run Linux. It will not mount, I have an entry set up in /etc/fstab for this drive, as I just use it as extra storage... and the drive is never present unless I power the thing off and back on.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Affordable board with a good amount of external USB 3.0 ports.
Cons: Makes a whining noise, as others have stated. Also only having 6 screws is a bit annoying, although I was extra careful with inserting memory and the 24 pin connector.
Ram location is really close to the CPU. I use the stock cooler with the RAM that came with this board, and it is about 1cm away from touching the heatsink on the fan. This pretty much leaves zero room for some of the "thicker" ram out there. Also, an aftermarket CPU cooler would have to be able to raise off the board enough to clear the RAM.
Other Thoughts: All in all I am happy with the board, just wish I had researched a bit more before buying it. I was in a rush, so that's on me.READ FULL REVIEW
