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!
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"
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
