Pros: - Stable (except for some beta BIOS, but that was my fault for using betas)
- Lots of room to work with
- Lots of ports
- Good memory compatibility

Cons: - The default BIOS interface is pretty dumbed-down, but the classic interface has everything you'd hope for.
- Killer Network Drivers & Creative SoundBlaster software seems to cause more issues than they're worth, best off to run without them.
- I wish there was just a little bit more room between the CPU and the top PCI-E port. I upgraded my cooler to a large Noctua and I had to move my 780 Ti down to the 2nd PCI-E port to make it fit. Not really much of an issue for me since I have a single GPU setup, but if you wanted to do some crossfire/SLI, it might pose some issues.

Other Thoughts: Been running this board pretty stable for the last 7 or 8 months with an Intel 5820K @ 4GHz, an NVidia 780 Ti, and 2x8GB sticks of Corsair DDR4-2400 RAM. I game pretty hard on this system and keep a very high up-time, so I was surprised to see all of the reviews on here of people saying they were having issues with their system's stability. Maybe there's some bad batches out there or something, but I'm very satisfied with mine, I haven't experienced any such issues.

3 out of 5 eggs Questionable Build Quality 12/07/2012

This review is from: Corsair Vengeance K90 Black/Metal USB Wired Gaming Performance, MMO Mechanical Keyboard

Pros: Great feel, great sound, great response.

Cons: Macro keys are too far away to be useful in many cases. Doesn't play well with Linux. Doesn't like baths.

Other Thoughts: I had this keyboard for about 5 or so months, loved it. One night I spilled some water on it, and it started typing the wrong keys. Went to use it the next day and it was dead.

I admit fault, KBs shouldn't get water on them. Even so I would have hoped that it would survive getting even a little bit wet without dying. Will not be buying a second one as a replacement for this very reason. So if you are getting one, DO NOT get it wet at all or it very well may stop working.

4 out of 5 eggs Good temporary mouse 11/15/2012

This review is from: Rosewill RM-2400L 6 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Laser 2400 dpi Mouse

Pros: Works well, cheap

Cons: Feels cheaply made, squared corners feel a bit edgier than they should.

Other Thoughts: It's what you should expect from a $3-5 mouse. It works fine, but it's probably not going to last you long. I personally just bought this while my old mouse had died and I was waiting for a Razer Deathadder to go on sale. I used this mouse for about a month or two and it's served it's purpose wonderfully.
