Pros: Lots of features. Easy enough for a first time builder to use.
Cons: I put a Haswell I7 4770K in it and was only able to overclock it to 4.2 GHz. I'm new to overclocking so it's entirely possible it's just me, but I was hoping to ramp it up a little more than that.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It worked out of the box, it's pretty fast even with little/no overclocking. This was my first time building a complete system.
Cons: It was not stable at anything over 4.2 GHz, and not because of heat. HWinfo showed that the temperature never got over 70 C., but it would crash at anything over 4.2 GHz. It's in an Asrock Extreme/6ac mobo.
Other Thoughts: I'm new to overclocking so it's entirely possible it's just me, but I was disappointed I couldn't ramp it up any higher.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This was my first time building a complete system, and it worked great. Worked first time out of the box, no issues.
Cons: Not completely modular, so I did end up with a couple of unneeded cables I had to hide. Fortunately, my case (Corsair Air 540) made that easy. Could be an issue in a tight build, I suppose.
Other Thoughts: Would buy it again.READ FULL REVIEW
