Pros: Rediculously fast, easy install, comes with 3.5" hdd bay adapter
Cons: non as of yet
Overall Review: Used this in my rig and made a clean install of windows 7 to raid it with a 1TB Barricuda HDD through Intel Smart Respone Technology. I have it running on the slower but safer of the two accelerated modes and in handles my system awesomly. It boots my computer from cold to operational in like less than twenty seconds and runs the minor gaming I do smoothly. Would recommend to a friend.
Does exactly what it's supposed to do
Pros: Keeps the CPU cool ( Intel 2500k, no overclock), is very quiet, easy install
Cons: haven't run into any, it installed clean and easy and has worked ever since
Overall Review: Does everything you'd expect from a CPU cooler. The other thousand reviews will back this up. Fits in my Fractal design Define R4, compatible with my Gigabyte Z68X-UD3H-B3 motherboard and Intel 2500k
Absolutely awesome case
Pros: Noise dampening, cable routing space, appearance, air flow, everything and everything about it, fan speed controller, front panel USB 3.0
Cons: You have to open a door to use any front drive bays like DVD. That's the only thing that has even remotely annoyed me.
Overall Review: BY FAR the BEST case I have ever owned. Completely thought out, completely silent, would recommend to everyone I know. I love it love it love it. 10/10, 5 eggs, 100 stars, thirty five thumbs up. Buy it and you'll never look back.
Will work for almost all users
Pros: Fast enough for everything I need it to do, cheaper than an i7
Cons: rediculously noisy stock cpu cooler
Overall Review: This CPU is more than enough for all but the most demanding users. Very fast, I have loved every second with it. The stock cpu cooler on the other hand is just awful, minus one egg. It keeps the cpu cool and non overclocked speeds but is louder than the six other fans I have on my rig combined. Just by a dedicated cpu cooler and save you ears.
Everything I would expect
Pros: Too many to list, read the description for a good idea
Cons: one software option messed up my bios, nothing a CMOS reset didn't fix though
Overall Review: Great motherboard. I made a custom build with this using an i5 2500k, a raided HDD/SDD combo with intentions of using intel smart respone tech. The gigabyte software helped me set that up flawlessly, extremely easy. Seems solid when you hold and no durability issues yet. One piece of gigabyte software messed up my bios settings but was easily fixed and has not happened since. Would recommend to a friend.
Pros: Tolerably Quit, great Red LED, very bright, moves a fair amount of air
Cons: Non as of yet
Overall Review: I cannot attest to the longevity of this product, but for as long as I have had it, (2 weeks), it has done its job. It has a very bright, actually red LED light. Im not sure its quiet but it is certainly is not loud. It moves a fair amount of air and just gets the job done. I would recommend to a friend.
