Pros: very fast, easy install, used as boot drive with no problems.

Cons: none i can find

Overall Review: great boot drive. I did a ot of research before making this purchase and found that a lot of people have issues with using m.2 drives for boot. his one not the case. im running windows 8.1 and it was supported with no updates to get up and going. dollar for dollar considering perfomance and size its hard to find a drive that can compete. id recomend this drive and suggest getting another cheaper drive for storage.

Pros: supports all next gen device imputs, lots of setup options, good mb for non overclocking builds

Cons: software for over clocking is unreliable, constant bios boot overclock failure when trying to over clock.

Overall Review: if your looking for a next gen board with future support including the high end m.2. turbo and usb 3.1 support its a good choice. if you want to overclock in addition strongly advise making a different choice. it was easy to install, all drivers worked fine including the use of a hyper x m.2 as boot drive just fine. but when i tried to over clock forget about it. i spent a week trying to obtain even modest clocking was nothing short of impossible. running intel 5820k other people with different boards were able to oc 4.0-4.6 Ghz easily with same cpu while i'm stuck at base clock of stock 3.3 and turbo disabled because it fails to boot with turbo enabled. the 5820k cpu is designed to have a turbo boost of 3.7
