Pros: I bought this keyboard in 2011 and I have yet to have any issues.
Cons: The s and d key show some signs of wear but that is because I play on my computer too much.
Pros: Got it free with my motherboard and it is actually quality ram! Runs really cool and I have had no ram related issues
Cons: Not an issue yet!
Overall Review: Got it Free. Good ram. Not worth $80 IMO because honestly I wouldn't buy any 8gb ram kits for that.
-Runs all my hardware with no issues
-Comes with build in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth(see cons)
-The MSI software that comes with it is honestly the nicest thing ever, downloads all drivers and keeps them updated
Cons: I did experience some bluescreens when I had the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth enabled but honestly, it is nice to have the option of Wi-Fi for if you ever need it but if I were you I would just hard wire it or buy a nicer Wi-Fi adapter, it will made a nice difference. I recommend the TP-LINK TL-WN722N as me and most of my friends have/use this and it works great.
Overall Review: Great mid to high end board in all
Pros: Solid build
good oc capability
Cons: it's too nice?
Overall Review: This is an amazing motherboard, it just makes me mad when people mark down Z68 boards for not being compatable with IVY BRIDGE. IVY BRIDGE is made for Z77 and is not supposed to work with Z68. Please don't be an idiot and try to build computers.
Pros: 1. Great sound stage.
2. Great build quality.
3. Sound great with or without sound card.
4. Directional sound is amazing.
Pros: Amazing CPU
- Renders intros and text in cinema 4D 6, yes, 6 times faster then my old-ish intel Mac
- 6 cores
- 3.2 Ghz
Cons: The fan was a little scary to put on, it was my first build and I was scared as hell that I was going to break something,I didn't tho :)
Overall Review: Idk what other people's problems are my CPU runs at 25-30 C idle and 30-36 C under a load but when rendering an intro I've got it to 40-50 C on the stock cooler and mine is so quiet I don't know if you guys have your ear pressed against your computers or if you ALL got bad fans, this is coming form a guy who thinks if dubstep isn't coming from my computer speakers, something must be broken
