Pros: Fast speeds for an SSD. Got it on sale, so the price per GB was great.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Installed in my daughter's laptop in UEFI mode about a month ago and no issues. She is very happy with the speed of her laptop now.

Most Critical Review

Little Flaky On The USB

GIGABYTE GA-H81M-S1 (rev. 2.1) LGA 1150 Intel H81 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
GIGABYTE GA-H81M-S1 (rev. 2.1) LGA 1150 Intel H81 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Price.

Cons: If I have a device plugged into the i/o USB 3.0 port and start the pc, my USB WiFi will not get activated. I have to pull the WiFi device and put it into another USB port, then it will activate. Or have nothing plugged into the i/o USB 3.0 ports and the WiFi activates on startup.

Overall Review: The fastest this board will run memory is 1400Mhz. So either get a set of well timed 1333Mhz memory and use the XMP or a set of 1600Mhz and set the speed and timings manually. I already had a set of F3-12800CL8D-8GBXM 1600Mhz memory and have it running at the board's max 1400Mhz speed and timed tCL 7, tRCD 7, tRP 7, tRAS 21, tRTP 6, tRRD 4, tWTR 6, tRFC 130, tWR 12, tWTP 22, tWL 6, tFAW 19 and it's running rock solid.

Great Fans

Pros: They move a lot of air and are quite.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: These are my go to 200MM case fans.

I'm impressed.

Rosewill THOR V2 ATX Full Tower Gaming PC Computer Case, Supports: E-ATX & XL-ATX, 4 Dual-Speed Fans, 10 Expansion Slots
Rosewill THOR V2 ATX Full Tower Gaming PC Computer Case, Supports: E-ATX & XL-ATX, 4 Dual-Speed Fans, 10 Expansion Slots

Pros: Case seem to be built very well. My case showed up in perfect condition (thank you UPS). I bought this case as I needed more pci expansion slots and this baby has 10! Fan speed knobs work perfect. Not as heavy as my HAF X, but has more pci expansion slots.

Cons: The 230mm fans in this case don't seem to move much air, but they are quite. May have to replace them with some Thermaltake Pure 20 CL-F015-PL20BL-A 200mm Quiet High Airflow fans as they move more air and are quiet at full speed. Will have to see once I get the case full of video cards.

Overall Review: I would buy this case again.

I won't run a pc without this software installed.

Malwarebytes Premium 4.5 Latest Version - 5 Devices / 1 Year - Download
Malwarebytes Premium 4.5 Latest Version - 5 Devices / 1 Year - Download

Pros: This is the best anti-virus/malware software I have used. It's true real time protection. It will block you from known sites that have viruses or malware on them. I build computers for people and always install this to keep them protected.

Cons: About the only thing I have found this software will pick up false negative when you use Auslogics software installed, but it does give you them option to no longer flag the software. This only happens on it's first scan of your system and you just tell it to always ignore the items it picked up on the Auslogics software.

Overall Review: Great software and everyone should run it.
