Pros: Great BIOS, you can do autopilot or manual tweaking. Card layout was convenient for my case. The three case fan headers are conveniently located for front, side, and back fans; it also has a dual fan connector for the CPU fan. The internal USB-3 hooked to my case's front panel USB-3 ports and works like a charm.
Cons: See other thoughts.
Other Thoughts: Just a comment in case you like a to do a system build up incrementally--don't--you have to use an add-in video card to initially boot the system.
The BIOS is set to use an add-in video card as the default display. Since not all LGA 1155 processors have integrated Intel graphics, this makes sense. In the default BIOS the Intel integrated graphics is OFF. Each time you use the BIOS reset button on the back panel, it returns to this default configuration.
This review is from: D-Link DGS-105 Unmanaged 5-Port Gigabit Switch
Pros: Have been using this switch for a bit over a month now with absolutely no problems. This will run gigabit links over my CAT5e wiring with several 100 foot runs and one 200 foot run. This thing runs cool to the touch in a cabinet where I have cooked to death two 10+ year old 10/100 switches. I am waiting for another sale to buy a couple more of these.
Cons: Why did I wait so long to upgrade?
Other Thoughts: Full wired home/office system with four computers and three networked HP printers. One Cisco RV180 central router and three work areas with switches.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This is a great monitor. Very clean and professional looking. Dell has replaced HP as the go-to monitor vendor. I bought two of these for my i7 system and am considering getting another one for my i5 system. Been using these 11 months and not a single thing wrong with them.
Cons: No back mounts, but I wouldn't be using them anyway.
Other Thoughts: The bezel is shiny but not objectionable. The screen is an non-obtrusive anti-glare.READ FULL REVIEW
