Works Mid 2012 MacBook Pro 15"

G.SKILL Standard Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Laptop Memory Model F3-1600C10D-16GSQ

Pros: Ran memory test for over an hour - all tests passed. Currently there is no 16 GB "approved" MacBook Pro memory but this works. Installed in a snap, fired right up.

Cons: None that I can say. Had it less than a day. Will report back if any issues.

Meh...

AZZA Solano 1000 Black Japanese SECC Steel/Metal mesh in front MicroATX/ATX/Full ATX Computer Case

Pros: Quiet. Sturdy but...

Cons: Mine came with the top exhaust fan DOA. LED works but the fan does not. Major disappointment considering the cost and super annoying. I am not taking my machine apart to send it back. This thing will NOT FIT A COOLER MASTER HYPER 212 PLUS. I can close the door but it bows out. Thankfully it does not interfere with the side fan. Anything bigger you will not be able to close the door at all. So just be warned.

Overall Review: ASUS P67 Sabretooth MB.

Jeepers it's quick

Intel Core i7-2600K - Core i7 2nd Gen Sandy Bridge Quad-Core 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Intel HD Graphics 3000 Desktop Processor - BX80623I72600K
Intel Core i7-2600K - Core i7 2nd Gen Sandy Bridge Quad-Core 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Intel HD Graphics 3000 Desktop Processor - BX80623I72600K

Pros: Very fast processor. Coupled with a fast SSD it is pretty much unstoppable. Using with an Asus Sabretooth P67 mobo. Stock speeds idles at 34C. For the price vs i5 2500k, it may not be worth the extra cheese.

Cons: Needs an aftermarket cooling solution. Otherwise smooth sailing.

Cons: Expensive. Otherwise, NONE.
