Pros: Bios is all pros
flashing bios, saving settings all pro
Low Heat high clk's
4820k ivy-E 4.8 water, everything moves as fast, fast as you click the mouse.
Cons: None Currently, no pre-configured water coolers for chipsets. I believe used in hwbot competitions, they might like something like that. Doesnt have 8 memory Dimm's and memory with more GB is expensive. Then fast memory with more GB is really expensive. Dilemma's
Other Thoughts: When You turn on for the first time, you may not have any display. need to flash bios. Very easy thing to do, just have a usb flash drive when you purchase.
********** In manual it states bios is a ROM file, using USB Bios flash back this did not work. Save bios as a .CAP and it works great. Freaked me out for like 10 minutes !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Then I'm kind of a everything on auto except bare necessitys bios guy. But I found that Increasing Voltages greater than auto will help system stability and help with sleep issues. Up to user but a little time adjusting goes a long way. I dont think its starving, V+ but just needs a little boost. I dont know the terms for for the voltages but slowly play with voltages on lower cpu configuration. possible night and day difference.
Pros: Just some clarification, Haven't owned it long enough to really know. So Far so good, Seems a little faster than my last ssd. Maybe new so its faster, anything new is always faster and better.
included sata cable 18.5 inches, black, thinner and smaller sata terminals than norm.
make sure to use included plastic plate, to make it blend with black interior of a pc case, showing a nice silver accent.
If you install it into a laptop with a standard 2.5 bay. SSD is thinner than normal, and will possibly flop around in bay, leading to a damaged laptop. Or even worse, poor gaming, then a broken laptop.
Cons: none so farREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Window situation resolved, all's-well
Silverstone sent windowed panel, I'm glad they did, no matter what I do I can never get lines cut straight as factory, and avoid using ugly rubber window molding is a plus. Don't get me wrong window molding rocks, but the factory stamped rounded edges is flat out the best. The best perk is the window is 1/4 plexi, and is held neatly by a couple of screws, if swapping plexi colors is your thing. Build is going really well, easy case to work with, and is very functional.
Cons: None, now that situation has been worked out. I guess Silverstone took a look at the competitors Ad. Felt the same way I did, It looks like there trying to sell windowed model.
Other Thoughts: Thank You New Egg for accurate information being posted. And allowing feed back that combats the manufacturer or other store blow the customer off. If my situation WAS the case or WAS NOT the case its nice to have a opportunity to make your statement with reps, and other customers, if it should happen that way. It seems Small but when you plan your build to be done a certain way, its all gung hoREAD FULL REVIEW
