Pros: Works exactly the way it should, and it is super fast.
Cons: None so far.
Overall Review: My only hangup on this is, my MB doesn't have a M.2 slot, so I bought a PCIe to M.2 adapter also, and was planning on using this drive as my main hard drive...but unfortunately my MB won't boot from PCIe...which I did NOT know before I bought this...so unfortunately, I had to install my OS on a regular solid state drive and I just use this as my "game storage". I can't fault Crucial for this, so they still get a 5 star rating for this item, but...just a warning to those who may be trying to do what I did, double check your BIOS and make sure that you can boot from PCIe beforehand.
Pros: It looks and operates exactly the way that it should.
Pros: The contrast from the yellow stands off my motherboard and looks better than I thought it would.
The plastic felt really solid and durable.
Cons: The plastic felt good...but broke very easily from simply tightening down my heatsink.
Overall Review: Luckily the set came with two because the first one broke from simply attaching the heatsink. I was pretty confused because the plastic felt heavy and solid. I guess you get what you pay for...
EDIT: As of January 22, the second one has broken also. My wife complained that her computer shut off for no reason and kept doing so when she powered it on...upon inspection, it's because the heatsink had separated from the processor because the mount broke. I can't recommend these...spend a bit more on a better quality product.
Pros: I love the visual appearance.
Since installing, my CPU sits about 20°C lower than before...so I'm getting much better performance overall.
With Corsair's iCUE software, the RGB syncs up with my keyboard and mouse.
Cons: None, so far!
Pros: This card is a beast.
It is heavy and looks awesome.
Cons: It get's pretty hot, but I have good airflow and a huge case...so it doesn't hurt me, but it could be a problem for some with smaller cases.
