Pros: works fast and great
Cons: pins for the CF slot bend very easily, even though I took precautions as usual to insert the card carefully. you may not even realize you have a bent pin, cards will often be recognized and even download, but then you may have corrupt files. the guide for the card is basically just the faceplate, but they need to take some cues from other manufacturers and give the guide more depth.
Pros: A great priced Z68 board. Running very stable with a 2500K at 4.4ghz. Just a CM 212+ for cooling.
Cons: The board size isn't standard ATX, it uses about 2/3 of the same mounting holes. It only has two 2.0 and two 3.0 USB on the board. No USB 3.0 internal headers. It doesn't sleep entirely properly, the fans stay running.
Overall Review: Overall I'm very happy with the purchase. The odd size doesn't matter once mounted and the few USB ports is easily supplemented with 4 more using a cheap PCI expansion. The one thing still bothering me is the fans running while sleeping, which is fairly minor in the big picture.
