Pros: Works, allows installation of PSU in bottom of case.
Pros: Brilliant board, great features
Cons: 99% of the problems I have had have been the result of ASUS being jerks over the telephone, I will back up other reviewers here. In order to cross ship motherboards they wanted to charge me $210, which was unacceptable, thankfully Newegg is still the most awesome e-tailer on the planet.
The other 1% of problems are teething problems with a new generation of bios, UEFI is poorly documented right now but if you play around enough you should be able to get it to work.
Overall Review: As far as the hardware quality goes, its second to none. If intel had not messed up I would have given this board 5 eggs, but since they forced me to come face to face with ASUS customer service I have to take it down a couple of eggs. ASUS slogan should be Great Hardware, but our customer service is a war crime.
Pros: Brilliant design, solid reliability, ASUS does it again!
Cons: P67 recall means I have to replace it
Overall Review: ASUS has never failed me as an OEM, unlike some others I could name.
Pros: Works out of the box at specified timings
Pros: Brilliant processor, grate for OC.
Cons: The P67 board I got sucks
Pros: Brilliant cooler, works as advertised, even when OCed processor remains around 50C
Overall Review: A lot of people complain the cooler is very large, check you case specs before you buy, Cooler Master has specs on its website, if you have a 120mm fan you are probably okay.
Pros: Works in spec every time.
Pros: works kinda
Cons: MSI has almost zero documentation, what documentation it does have is writtled with gramatical errors. The i7-2600K is not supported out of the box, the v17 firmware cannot save any new settings. UEFI interface can at best be called confusing.
Cons: The only reason I did not give this ram one egg is that the mobo I got is also part of the problem. This ram does not always work, I got it as part of a P67 build, anytime I try to use the XMP profile on the motherboard it just reboots until I reset the bios to defaults.
Overall Review: Last time I buy ram from someone other than corsair or crucial.
Pros: Works brilliantly
Overall Review: Haven't seen a CDROM with software in awhile
Pros: Better than Arctic Silver 5
Pros: Good Air Flow, eSata which is awesome.
Overall Review: For the best performance you probably want to put it on its side.
Pros: Good Space, Good Price
Pros: The best tech purchase I have made in awhile. I bought two of these to do software development. No bad pixels, vibrant displays. Big screens!!!!
Overall Review: Some might be upset that they are square screens. I personally do not like the new 16:9 monitors and so I decided to go with my old standby resolution and I could not be happier, but be aware of the choice you are making.
Pros: Factory OC from XFX, awsome case catalyst drivers, much better than GTX 480 in terms of power and heat dissapation.
Overall Review: You must patch the NVIDIA drivers to use PhysX with ATI cards, a minor annoyance not ATI/AMD's fault
Pros: Holds 2 monitors
Pros: This is by far the single most powerful mouse I have ever used. The best gaming accessory I have ever bought get this mouse right now!!! I wish I could give it more than 5 stars really.
Overall Review: Needs a Linux driver, the mouse needs to be configured by the user, all those people complaining about ghost movment apparently don't realize you have to fool with this mouse for a little while to get it to work right, once you do though wow!
Pros: Great Price for DDR2 Memory
Cons: NOT SLI compatible
Pros: Great CPU
Cons: Not an i7
Pros: Well priced, decent cooling
Pros: Duplex Printing, network interface
Overall Review: we can throw away the printer since the toner costs 95 bucks
Pros: many, many fans fits everything including upto 9 hard drives brilliant design by antec
Pros: nice mobo from asus, optional north bridge fan, excelent features, fits well in an antec 1200 case.
Overall Review: be careful that your powersupply has a long enough cable for the 4 pin 12V ATX processor power cable, mine barely reaches
Pros: I bought two and put them in an SLI config works wonders
Pros: Works well in the Antec 1200
Cons: Headsink not very large
Overall Review: antec 1200 ventalation optimal for this design since it uses empty air to help vent heat
