GIGGIDY

GIGABYTE GA-G31M-ES2L LGA 775 Intel G31 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: This was my second GIG board I have ever purchased and I like it. I purchased an EP45T UD3P a few weeks before this one and they are both good products at a reasonable price. I used to buy Abit and Asus, but I will definitely buy another GIG. This was for a second PC.

Cons: none

Pros: Great fan the moves alot of air. Ball bearings so it should last awhile. Works like a champ.

Cons: I is slightly noisey, but I expected some minor noise from such a large fan running at 1900rpm.

Pros: Very solid and sturdy. Metal case you can stand on. I like the looks. I has a front panel with audio, usb and firewire. Holds 6 hard drives. Provides fan cooling from the side to cool the hard drives. This is the 4th Chieftec case I own. IMO these are the best PC cases made. I only purchase other brand names when I build for people. I have purchased many brands and these are the best. Chieftec offers many types of cases on thier web site, but you can't buy them in the US.

Cons: Notice the hard drives are placed from the side. Connecting the power and data cable does not leave much space to put the cover back on. I used L-shaped power wires and L-shaped sata cable connector.

Overall Review: The fan sizes are 92mm and 120mm. I was not used to using such a large fan (120). Not a pro or con, just different for me. Moves alot of air. Gigbyte P55-UD3R MB, 4GB OCZ RAM, I7-860, Cooler Master 212, NVIDIA GX 260, Corsair 750 PS, 1.5TB Seagate HD
