Pros: Good and stable. Easy to update bios. Embedded video and audio are decent. Software support from Intel is excellent.

Cons: This board is designed for professional installation especially with RAID. Not much document available in the shipped box. Here is the magic key combo for those of you who want to configure RAID: Ctrl+i. Press that combo repeatly as soon as you exit the BIOS in order to get into RAID setup since you won't be able to read that. Without pressing Ctrt and i, your OS won't recognize the storage device and no OS install will be taken place.

Pros: Awesome burner. I've used many brand including Sony, LG, HP... The Samsung burner is simply better than the rest. Quiet, fast and reliable. I've been using a couple of these for almost a year and they are very quiet. Burn with Memorex DVD DL +R withouth problem.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Excellent firmware upgrade

Great DVI-HDMI cable

Cons: None

Burn DVD-R DL really well

Pros: Excellent burner. Really fast and quiet. It burns DVD-R DL in 20-24 minutes without "Verify data after burn" option. I always bought Samsung DVD burner because it offers easy firmware upgrade. This burner does burn Memorex DVD-R DL very well. Don't spend extra money on Verbatim. I have not had any coaster or any problem using this burner and Memorex disc. Burn at 8x DVD-R DL without a single problem for the entire spindle. (My system is nothing of interest: RAID 0, DP35DP, E6600, 8800GS and nothing else special)

Cons: None

Pros: Solidly built. I really like the quality of the card physical built. This card also produces very good graphic and is fast. Displayed text is sharper than the other 8800GS made by EVGA

Cons: Noisier than the 8800GS made by EVGA
