Cons: No hyperthreading
Other Thoughts: I have mine at 4.5GHz (1.23v) with the ASRock anniversary motherboard and a cooler master hyper 212.
It doesn't have many of the features of higher end intel CPUs, but it's very cheap for an unlocked CPU, so no complaints here.
Pros: Easy to overclock with the Pentium g3258
Good BIOS interface
USB 3.0 header compatibility
Plenty of space for other PCI/PCIe things
Lots of SATA and USB ports
Good price compared to other z97 chipsets
Cons: No SLI/Crossfire support
Other Thoughts: I have this paired with the anniversary Pentium. It's very easy to overclock with this specific CPU, because you can just turn on the auto-overclock, and adjust the clock rate higher yet to your liking in the BIOS as high as you want it.
This is a new board, and it has everything you want (HDMI, USB 3.0, etc). It may not be suited for high end enthusiasts though, because it doesn't support SLI/Crossfire.
Pros: Runs cool
Consumes little power
Has hyperthreading for multitasking
Other Thoughts: This CPU is surprisingly good for gaming. Does pretty well on large BF4 servers, even though it's not a quad core.READ FULL REVIEW
