Pros: Very quiet, highly efficient.
Cons: *Fan takes up two adjacent PCIe slots.
*Glue that was supposed to be used to fix heat sinks to the memory and other components on the graphics card had solidified in the tube. This means that i) this had been sitting on the warehouse shelf for a long time or ii) the glue was not properly manufactured.
*The fan is powered by a cable from the power supply instead of the power supplied for the fan on the video card.
Other Thoughts: Good fan but could be better designed.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Does run well when up to 2 RAM modules are installed.
Cons: The board I got from this site would not boot when more than 2 RAM modules were installed. I sell Intel products and I got an Advance Warranty Replacement through them. The second board had the identical issue! I transferred everything to a Gigabyte board and now everything works well.
Intel motherboards used to be high quality - no longer. I've had endless issues with Intel desktop boards over the last 12 months. When I compare the same chip set on a motherboard coming from Gigabyte, the quality of the components on the Gigabyte board is much higher even though Intel is more expensive. Intel is shutting down their desktop motherboard division so it's probably time to jump ship anyway.
Other Thoughts: Think about something similar from Gigabyte or AsusREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast and quiet with low temps when working at maximum capacity.
Cons: Causes blue screens 0x0116. This is happening on two separate motherboards so it is definitely the card. In any case 0x0116 on bsod's means there is something wrong with video card.
Other Thoughts: Deeply disappointed. Hope the replacement is better!READ FULL REVIEW
