Pros: Great monitor for the price. Very crisp display with no dead pixels on arrival.
Cons: Onboard speakers are poor, but I didn't buy the monitor for the speakers. If you plan to use this as your primary speakers, and you need more than just system beeps, prepare to be disappointed.
Overall Review: Woot
Pros: So far so good. Has been stable and greatly improved benchmarks. So far every game I've tried has run perfectly maxed out (Oblivion, TF2, Neverwinter 2, Quake ET).
Cons: The temps on this thing run a little high so make sure you have some other fan(s) in your case directed to help support it.
Overall Review: Price is higher than expected right now. Supply and demand I guess. It's great that the card is smaller and less weight than other recent cards. Really very nice.
It's a fan and it moves air
Pros: They have a niec bright color to them and they move air well.
Cons: Bought four of these, and one came with a failed LED. Not a bad ratio I guess, but could have been better. They are not very quiet, but I knew that when I bought it.
Overall Review: Consider a fan controller.
Pros: It's got everything I needed and then some. Been solid as a rock so far, and plenty of OC features for down the road to help stretch my investment.
Cons: I'm using a case that mounts the PSU on the bottom. The power connectors on this mobo are in a horrible spot if your PSU is mounted below it. Cables have to stretch over the board to connect. It's a minor gripe that will only affect a small percentage of users.
Overall Review: Could have gone with the LT version of this board. Only difference is the LT only has a single onboard NIC (and costs less). Although NIC driver allows for easy teaming of both NICs, so maybe worth the money to some.
Pros: Mostly this case is very easy to work inside. The built in zip ties for cabling is a nice touch, and having the power supply at the bottom of the case just makes sense. Fans have adjustable speed to help keep noise down. Over all very nice.
Cons: The fans are adjustable only by a switch attached to the fan. This means you have to open the case and adjust each fan individually. Minor annoyance, but external fan control on a case this expensive might have been nice.
Overall Review: This thing looks NICE!
