Could be much better9/7/2011 9:03:54 AM

Pros: Mechanical keys are truly different

Cons: * The driver does not recognize it through a KVM switch or a USB hub. Has to be directly connected to a computer port. * Updated firmware from razer website and pretty much killed the thing. DON'T do the firmware update!

The best3/7/2011 10:15:47 AM

Pros: The best air cooler, period Sandy Bridge 2600K at 4.5Ghz runs at 65C tops under 100% load No clearance issues - even with ripjaws which have considerably high "fins" Absolutely silent Easy to assemble, easy to maintain.

Cons: Nothing that you don't already know. Color, price - you can see them clearly on Newegg before you buy, can't you?. If the color or the price bother you, why buy it in the first place?

Overall Review: Extremely happy with my purchase.

the fastest on the market3/7/2011 10:05:46 AM

Pros: Runs all 4 cores at 4.5Ghz stable. UNBELIEVABLY fast. Everything just flies

Cons: Could not overclock above that, despite an outstanding cooler. The temperatures don't rise above 65 degrees, but still getting BSOD over 4.5

Overall Review: At this price point this thing is unbeatable.

not bad3/4/2011 10:36:58 AM

Pros: Extremely easy to install. Everything just falls in the right place. Just right feature set. Nothing's missing, and nothing's unneeded. Control Center II functionality is nice for overclocking. Low profile heatsinks don't interfere with Noctua D14.

Cons: Control Center software has stability issues BIOS update instructions only describe how to flush the BIOS using a floppy disk. Guess what: even if I had a floppy drive, this board does not support them. When arrived from Newegg, it looked like an open box.

Very nice3/4/2011 10:14:36 AM

Pros: Extremely fast. (7.9 Windows performance index) No clearance issues with Noctua D14

Cons: On sandy bridge systems runs on 1866. I knew that going in though, and 9-10-9-28-1T is not bad.

The best CIV ever3/3/2011 1:20:51 PM

Pros: This is by far the best game of the franchise. Playability is substantially improved and micromanagement is minimized drastically. Graphics is nice, too

Cons: Buggy. Stops working quite often. Hopefully this will be fixed in future updates.
