Pros: I got this board when the sandy bridge was just coming out and this was one of the few boards I had to choose from. I am so happy that I decided on this board, the only issue I had it was about 40$ more for me when this board hit the shelf. 1) For all those that say the blue light bothers them, go to the bios and turn them off? The option is there I promise you.(Motherboard LED control under green options) 2) This board comes with 12 USB((8)2.0, (4)3.0) and that is not including the 2 on that is on my case. How many USB would you want on a board and how much stuff do you need to plug in at once, you do know that 3.0 is backwards compatible right? 3) The click bios made it extremely easy for me to overclock my machine to the settings I desire with such ease.

Cons: I paid more :(

Overall Review: This is a great board for overclockers or just plain everyday computer work. I have installed this board in many clients as well as I have it in my own rig ----------------------------------------- Antec DF-35 Case MSI P67-GD55 i5-2500k @ 4.7ghz OC 30 idle 50 full load Cooler Master Hyper 212 CPU cooler 8 gigs of G.Skill Ripjaw series 1600 ddr3 PNY 460gtx(OC) x2 in sli Intel 520series 120gb SSD WD 750gb x2 7200rpm HD Raidmax 850AE PSU Cooler Master Sickleflow Red LED 120mm fans x6 Xigmatek 200m Cyrstal series Red LED fan

This is a very large cooler. But it gets the job done like a champ.5/1/2011 7:58:44 PM

Pros: This cooler gets the job done like a pro. It was very easy to mount to my p67 motherboard and dropped my i5 2500k @4.6ghz core temps from 60-72 to a lovely 41 at full load and 28 at idle. I would recommend this any gamer who wanted there pc to be on air cooling rather then water.

Cons: This is a very LARGE heatsink and fan. Do not get this if you are using a small case or have very little room to begin with. Its about a 1/4" away from hitting my glass in my Antec DF-10 series case.

Pros: The fan led matches my OCZ fatal1ty psu perfectly. I use this fan as my top fan in my Antec Dark fleet case and I couldn't be happier with my purchase.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Got this when it had a 10 mail in rebate I am still waiting for that but it has only been 4 weeks.
