Pros: -Love the red headsinks and matching slots/connectors -Two LAN connectors -Excellent overclocking potential -Easy to use overclocking options in BIOS, along with the ability to save overclocking profiles -Well-packaged

Cons: -Might need to watch the size of the CPU heatsink, as clearance is a bit tight with the RAM slots -Occasionally upgrading BIOS breaks the overclock, and have to re-tweak the settings. Personal feeling here is don't upgrade unless there's a reason to.

Overall Review: Absolutely would recommend, great board, and great overclock potential.

Awesome Case!2/10/2014 4:24:42 PM

Pros: Excellent build quality, decent cooling. Looks nice, LEDs aren't super bright. Can fit larger video cards! Temps under load are around 35 C.

Cons: It was a bit expensive when I bought it. ATX power supply fitment is a bit tight. Solved with a Silverstone PSU:

Overall Review: Specs: ASUS mATX Z77 Intel 3770k Diamond Radeon 6950 OCZ RevoDrive 3 x2 240gb

Excellent 1U Server!4/10/2012 4:22:28 PM

Pros: Excellent layout for a 1U, low-depth case, has an Asus P8B-M motherboard, comes with a PCI express riser. System runs cool. No driver issues with Server 2008 R2 64-bit. Runs cool, and fans are quiet.

Cons: Limited room for expansion, but it's 1U!

Overall Review: System specs: -ASUS RS100-E7/PI2 -Intel Xeon 1230 3.2 GHz Quad-Core -8 GB Kingston DDR3-1333 -Western Digital 160GB Caviar Black -Samsung Spinpoint M8 HN-M101MBB 1TB -2 x Western Digital 750GB Caviar Black -Intel SASUC8I RAID Controller To make the laptop drives fit, I used a Kingwin HDM-225 adapter, took a bit of drilling to make it fit.

Just what was needed4/10/2012 3:32:44 PM

Pros: Splits a single SATA power cable to 2!

Cons: Would be nice if there was a bit more plastic shielding the male connector, but the construction is solid.

Overall Review: Used to place 2 2.5" drives in a 3.5" bay.

Works well4/10/2012 3:29:22 PM

Pros: Works well -- didn't arrive DoA. 7,200 RPM and a larger cache. Excellent price when it was purchased.

Cons: Short warranty period, but hey, it's recertified.

Overall Review: Using 2 of them in a 1U Asus server RS100E7 in a mirrored RAID array with a Intel SASUC8I. No failures so far... CrystalDiskMark sequential reads are at 112.2 mb/sec, writes at 105.2. Not bad for a 2.5" drive!

Hey, a small drive!3/18/2011 2:02:25 PM

Pros: Supports DVD DL burning, and fits perfectly in my Silverstone SG05 case.

Cons: A bit noisy, but not a big deal as I don't use it much.

Overall Review: Part of a new build -- just needed it to load windows, and for the occasional DVD/Audio CD to play.

Excellent3/18/2011 1:58:41 PM

Pros: Great feature set for such a small board: -Supports 95W AM3 Processors -Bluetooth -Built-In Wireless -eSATA Port -2 USB 3.0 Ports -2 Fan Headers -I/O Plate doesn't feel flimsy

Cons: -Thermal protection kicked on 2 minutes after I build the system. Pulled the motherboard back out and tightened the screws on the northbridge. Seems to be working ok for now -- keep in mind that the NB runs fairly hot, you may want to get a fan. -Bit of a cramped layout, the front panel headers are right in line with the graphics card...but I'm nitpicking.

Overall Review: Built this as a replacement for an aging mATX box: AMD Athlon II 630 2.8 GHz 4 GB DDR3 1333 (PC-10600) Scythe Shrunken HSF (N82E16835185129) MSI Radeon HD 5770 WD Velociraptor 300GB Silverstone SG05 Case Sony/Optiarc Slimline Slot Loading DVD Burner I am seriously amazed how much power you can pack onto this board, only unfortunate part is that when you put the Shrunken HSF on, good luck getting the RAM out, but at least the fan covers most of the board, helping cool a bit.

Excellent RAM11/17/2010 10:51:18 AM

Pros: Excellent RAM, had no problems getting it to the advertised timings & speed on my P35-DS3L. Heatsinks actually do something!

Cons: None!

Overall Review: I was definitely suprised to the actual weight of these -- I've had other ram with heatsinks, but this takes it to a new level.

SPA310211/17/2010 10:48:41 AM

Pros: Small device, works perfectly with my 3cx IP PBX.

Cons: Doesn't always detect the other party hanging up, but not a big deal, as you can always set a timeout for when it doesn't detect any voices on the line.

Overall Review: Pretty straightforward to setup, just take it one setting at a time :).

Hey, it's a toner cartridge!10/24/2010 9:30:57 AM

Pros: -Works well, no streaking, leaks, and good coverage on printed pages.

Cons: -A bit pricey for the cartridge, but for about 5000 sheets of paper, it's not that bad.

Wow, Fast!10/24/2010 9:28:36 AM

Pros: -Very fast -Zero Issues so far

Vroom Vroom!10/24/2010 9:24:48 AM

Pros: -Very fast drive -Runs cool -- 30 C

Cons: -It's not free?!

Overall Review: 2nd 300 GB Velociraptor drive that I've bought, and zero issues from either so far -- they're a bit louder than the Green, Blue, or Black Series.

Eggcellent10/24/2010 9:21:56 AM

Pros: -Well Marked Buttons -Backlit Screen -Simple to use Web Interface -Can upload alternate ringtones to device -Decent Loudness on Speakerphone -Various Screensavers -PoE

Cons: -First one I received stopped working, but the 'egg made it right, second one has been going strong. -Not sure why, but the caller ID for an incoming call says "To: xxx-xxx-xxxx", but not a deal-breaker -10/100 ethernet ports, but again, not a big deal

Overall Review: Using with a 3CX-Based IP Telephony system, haven't had any issues with sound quality.

Awesome power in a small package4/15/2010 5:15:40 AM

Pros: About the best low profile card available. Went from a 4650 to this; WEI scores before were 5.0 and 6.4; after were 6.8 and 6.8. Looks like I'm getting about 30 - 40% faster. Haven't had a chance to judge the temps, but after playing Modern Warefare 2 at mid settings for an hour and a half, the fan only kicked to audible levels 6-7 times. Works in an Antec Minuet w/350 watt PSU.

Cons: Wish I'd seen this before I bought the 4650 8 months ago!

Overall Review: Does come with 4 Pin Molex (must plug both connectors in) to PCI-E 6-Pin power adapter. Tight fit in Antec Minuet Case -- the card was nearly touching the 5.25" Drive backplate, and the power connector fit underneath, so a pretty close fit w/o modding.

Great!4/15/2010 4:50:40 AM

Pros: 2 HD SATA Power Connectors, quiet. Fit like a glove into my older Minuet case that came with a 220 Watt PSU (the fan was just starting to go after 5 years), enough power to run an AMD X2 5000+, 4GB RAM, 250 WD Blue, Samsung IDE DVD Burner and a low profile Sparkle 9800GT.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Wish this power supply came with the Minuet I bought, but glad I can get this!

Great deal!4/12/2010 7:13:47 AM

Pros: Decent looking case, I got it when free shipping was available. Front USB/Audio. Included fan is quiet, and moves a fair amount of air. Put a lighted LED fan in the front, oh so pretty. Plenty of room for 3 HD's and DVD Writer. Just need a standard PSU to power it all.

Cons: Not a huge fan of the twist out expansion covers, but in this price bracket, it's really not that big of a deal.

Overall Review: Decent deal, panels fit together pretty well, and the LEDs on the front aren't too bright.

So far, so good4/12/2010 6:55:01 AM

Pros: Had no problems dropping everything in, had POST on first try.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Running this with: Core2 e6400 2 x OCZ3G1600LV2G (2GB/stick) @ DDR3-1066 WD 74GB Raptor 2 x WD10EARS Samsung IDE DVD Burner Very pleased everything worked properly -- this system was built from parts I had sitting around; just wanted to build a box for storage, and this gets it done. I wasn't able to get the board to go up to DDR3-1333, but not that big a deal, since the FSB on the CPU is 1066.

9/22/2009 12:47:24 PM

Pros: Works flawlessly, no dead sticks.

Cons: DDR2-667, but not really a downside if that's all the board supports.

Overall Review: Price went up 20 dollars/kit after I bought. Specs for system are: Dual Opteron 2218 HE Processors (4 Cores Total) Tyan 2912 w/BIOS version 4 8 GB RAM (4x2gb Wintec) 74gb 10k Raptor Hard Drive 2x1 TB WD Green Drives System Power Consumption is around 108 watts idle, 178 watts under load. Decent RAM, just read carefully what your board needs as each board is different.

Pros: Looks great, no dead pixels. No ghosting in games, and BIG.

Cons: The power light is a big bright, but it's not distracting. There's a bit of backlight bleed toward the corners, but only noticeable if there's no image being displayed.

Overall Review: Great monitor, plenty of inputs, speakers are hidden in the upper back bezel.

Pros: Low power consumption, large cache, and quiet.

Cons: Not as fast as 7200 rpm drives.

Overall Review: Use 2 of these in a RAID 1 array in a Server 08 box, work great; nice low power consumption, and can't even hear them reading or writing, very quiet.

Works Great!7/18/2009 8:33:36 AM

Pros: Easy to configure, fast, can do multiple VLANs, can do 802.1q trunks, small form factor, runs cool. Inexpensive to boot for the features you get!

Cons: Not a big deal, the MAC address table should be under monitoring.

Overall Review: Without jumbo frames enabled, I'm still able to do: Interval Transfer Bandwidth 0.0-60.0 sec 3.00 GBytes 430 Mbits/sec Not too shabby!
