Pros: Awesome color scheme.
Worked out of the box.
Easy to use UEFI (running version F4b).
All necessary overclocking settings available (i5-6600K@4.5GHz)
Neat red LED line that matches my overall color scheme.
USB DAC port.
Solid audio chipset with changeable OP-AMP.
M.2 port that can use PCI express lane.
Other Thoughts: There were only a handful of reviews when I bought this board, and I am actually surprised to see all the negative reviews since making the purchase. I have had zero problems with this product.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very fast coming from an i5-2400.
Easy to overclock to 4.5GHz.
No stock cooler.
Incredibly cool idle and load temps, even when overclocked on air (Hyper 212 EVO).
Cons: Slight price premium seemingly because of short stock.
Other Thoughts: CPU paired with:
GIGABYTE G1 Gaming GA-Z170MX-Gaming 5
PNY Anarchy 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2400
GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 970 4GB G1 GAMING OC EDITION
Pros: Looks great.
Very easy cable management.
Nice size for a mATX board, large heatsink (Hyper 212 EVO), and long GPUs (Gigabyte 970 G1, 312mm).
SSD cradles and dust filters are a nice touch.
Free additional red LED 120mm included as an add-on for buying the case (just so happened to fit my color scheme).
Cons: If you have an optical drive, it kind of ruins the aesthetics. I actually opted not to put my drive in since I never use it anymore.
Bulky USB 3.0 cables.
Less airflow from the front of the case due to design, easy to work around though.
Other Thoughts: After building a system with the Corsair 250D for a friend, I knew my next case would be from the same line. I can also highly recommend that case if you are looking for mITX and don't nee as much space for a CPU cooler and GPU.READ FULL REVIEW
