Pros: Great performance for sata III SSDs. I have 2 of these in raid0. This pair in raid0 keeps up with my SAMSUNG M.2 SSD XP941 MZHPU256HCGL-00000 M.2 256GB performance - Read 1080 MB/s - Write 800 MB/s. And with twice the reliability of most SSDs should have typical SSD reliability in raid0 mode.

Cons: none

Nice board12/28/2014 11:00:14 AM

Pros: Easy set-up. Works like it should. No BIOS issues. M.2 works with SAMSUNG M.2 SSD XP941 256GB - fastfastfast. FYI - Board does NOT support 128GB ram with i7 CPUs - 64MB max.

Cons: Not the best manual around but it got the job done.

Overall Review: My set-up - all works great. ASRock X99 Professional LGA 2011-v3 Intel Core i7-5960X 2 - G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 series 32GB (4 x 8GB x 2sets = 64gb) 288-Pin DDR4 2133 EVGA 06G-P4-3790-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX TITAN BLACK 6GB 2 - Dell UltraSharp U3011 30" SAMSUNG SSD 840 EVO MZ-7TE500BW 2 - SAMSUNG SSD 850 Pro Series MZ-7KE512BW (Raid0) SAMSUNG M.2 SSD XP941 MZHPU256HCGL-00000 M.2 256GB Cooler Master HAF 932 case EVGA SuperNOVA 850 Power Supply Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler WARNING about Hyper 212 with LGA 2011-v3 If you are using the supplied LGA 2011 MoBo standoffs, check them closely. The threaded hole in my LGA 2011 standoffs were twice as deep as they should be. This hole is so deep that it goes into the male screw end making the screw end hollow and severely weakening it. When installing the standoffs, the screw breaks leaving the end of the screw in the Motherboard (no torque required). All 4 of my LGA 2011 standoffs were hollow like this. Bought my Hyper 212 on Black Friday 2014 so the problem may be corrected by now - but check your depth. I stuck a piece of wire in the stand-off to confirm the excessive depth (after the damage was done). No way to extract the hollow screw tip from MoBo. CoolerMaster offered me an RMA/refund on both the fan AND the MoBo - so CoolerMaster is still cool. I opted to engineer a solution using zip-ties due to production deadlines. If you are over-clocking, you will need a better cpu cooler anyway...

Big & quiet12/28/2014 8:38:36 AM

Pros: Big and Quiet.. The cavernous black interior has room for all sorts of goodies. The large CoolerMaster Hyper 212 cpu cooler fits with about 1/4" to spare between the top of the cooler and the side case fan. The 3 x 230mm fans are quiet.

Cons: If you like little computers like the Mac Pro, stay away. The massive interior on this has room to store 6 Mac Pros and your lunch.

WARNING possible LGA 2011 issue12/28/2014 8:12:56 AM

Pros: It cools as it should. I am not over-clocking so it is sufficient for my i7-5960X cpu. Over-clockers, need more cooling than this offers.

Cons: If you are using the supplied LGA 2011 MoBo standoffs, check them closely. The threaded hole in my LGA 2011 standoffs were twice as deep as they should be. This hole is so deep that it goes into the male screw end making the screw end hollow and severely weakening it. When installing the standoffs, the screw breaks leaving the end of the screw in the Motherboard (no torque required). All 4 of my LGA 2011 standoffs were hollow like this. Bought mine on Black Friday 2014 so the problem may be corrected by now - but check your depth. I stuck a piece of wire in the stand-off to confirm the excessive depth (after the damage was done). No way to extract the hollow screw tip from MoBo. I sent close-up pics to CoolerMaster who offered me an RMA/refund on both the fan AND the ASRock X99 Pro MoBo - so CoolerMaster is still cool - hence the 3 eggs. I opted to engineer a solution using zip-ties due to production deadlines.

10 GbE mini network on the cheap.12/28/2014 7:17:52 AM

Pros: They work great.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Used these for a cheap 10GbE mini network. Directly connected 2 computers with these cards using a Cat 7 cable (no router/switch). Can open and copy files between these 2 computers at fantastic speeds (SSD to SSD). 10GbE Network co-exists with the existing 1Gb network. Remember that you do not need a crossover cable. These cards auto-detect.

Bought 2 for Vista 64 / ESATA5/14/2009 5:51:24 AM

Pros: Big, quiet, reliable, fast (esata). Have had 1 for 5 mo. 1 for 3 mo.

Cons: On 1st V64 box via ESATA, it kept disappearing. On 2nd box, it works great as long you TURN IT OFF WHEN BOOTING or the machine hangs. I am aware of this quirk and live life accordingly. I have a ProDrive that has same prob on 1st box but is perfect on 2nd box. So Seagate may be culpable in the later situation.
