Pros: Super Quiet Not a huge Video card Performs well. Nice free schwag

Cons: Price The fact that its severely under-clocked.

Overall Review: I have mine at 700/1800 with stock volts and its humming along. This should of been the stock clocks for this card.

First Review

GIGABYTE G1.ASSASSIN2 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Onboard Sound and Onboard Lan are a nice added bonus, they free up slots for added airflow for multiple GPU's. Finally Gigabyte has their UEFI bios out, pretty nice.

Cons: Only 4 Dimm Slots, I think they are trying to aim this board at more of the gamers while the UD5 is what Gigabyte is pushing as their workstation board.

Overall Review: If you are building this for gaming then this is a great board, if you are looking to build a work station and you like Gigabyte go with the UD5. Overall with the few hours I have been tweaking with it the board has been rock stable. Right now at 4GHz with not much tweaks done in the bios yet. Also I recommend either going with your home brew watercooling unit or one of the self contained units from Corsair or Antec.
