Awesome Board!

Pros: This board's got it all! If you want to OC, this is the board for you! Without a doubt, hands down, one of the best boards out there for the price! I have an ICore 7 2.66, and I've got it OC'd at 3.6GHz with just air cooling, and it works great! It's actually making my Crysis game run on the highest setting along with my two BFG 280's. The bios makes OC'ing so easy, a baby could do it. lol Get this board, you won't regret it!

Cons: Doesn't make me coffee! :)

Overall Review: The only thing is if you're starting off with just 3 sticks of memory like I did, make sure you put them into the white slots. Those are the primary ones. If you use the blue one's, it won't start up. This board ICore 7 2.66 6 Gigs Crucial Balistix DDR3 1600 Two BFG GTX 280's Corsair 750 Watt PS

Love it!

Pros: Everything about this case is a Pro. I love the fact that I was able to put in a huge heat sync and fan and still have plenty of room.

Cons: None!

Overall Review: Awesome!

Pros: This is an add on to my last review. Something I forgot to mention. I'm using a Zalman S9000 CPU fan and while running at 3.6GHz, I'm running at 42 Degrees Celsius. That's pretty good for just air cooled. My case has a lot to do with it also. I'm using the CoolerMaster CM690. Just mentioning incase your thinking of changing cases, and you want something that's going to run cool.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: None.

Pros: Nice case. Very easy to use. The price of this unit is great considering it has an RJ-45 conncetion. This is the main reason I purchased it. Very easy to setup. The GUI is fantastick! The instruction are very easy to follow.

Cons: Uploaded with the network connection is slow. I also tried with the USB connection and still not as fast as I would like it, but you get what you pay for. And of course, as other users of stated, the wiring is really poor for the LED's. I have a glue gun, so it was no problem fixing it. Other than that, the unit is great.

Overall Review: For the price, you can't beat it! Highly recommended for external storage with network capabilities!
