Pros: Beautiful design. User friendly and easy to keep clean.
Cons: Bad fan controllers. I am now having to replace the fan controller for a second time as it has just stopped working. I have owned the case a little over a year. Hopefully the second replacement will also be at no charge to me like the first was.
Other Thoughts: I would find another case in this price range with these features if I were you.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Prolimatech PRO-PK1-5G PK-1 Thermal Compound - 5 Gram
Pros: Easy application on my 2500K. This compound combined with my Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme cooler gives me 30c idle and 62c load temps with Prime 95 small FFT test. That is while running at 4.6ghz and 1.344v
Cons: none that i can think of.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I ended up getting this board for $135 shipped in an after Christmas sale. Booted right up first attempt with a 2500k and 8gb of gskill 1600mhz. The utilities that come with it are nice and organized. Very clean look to the board.
I have experienced the boot loop that others describe, however it ONLY happens if the board fails to post after Ive set my overclock settings to aggressively in the BIOS. Going back into the BIOS and backing off your settings will fix this. Not an issue for me as I overclock slowly and methodically. I wouldnt pay $175 for this board, but at the price I got it at, how can you lose?
Cons: slight annoyance with boot loop, but that can be avoided. Its a non issue for those who dont overclock, or only rely on Turbo boost presets for overclocking.
Other Thoughts: Its a solid board. Ive got my 2500k at 4.6ghz at 1.28v stable. There is still plenty of room it seems to increase the OC. That is just how far Ive gotten it in the past 1.5 days.READ FULL REVIEW
