Pros: This case was the highlight of my build. It was easy to assemble, SUPER versatile, well thought out and put together. I found a 4 pack of cooler master 120mm "Silent sleeve bearing fans" and it was the same fan as the 2 preinstalled in the case. I installed all 6 fans using the included hardware, and the thing is still relatively quiet. The right side panel leaves plenty of room to tuck away extra power cables, and all sharp edges are rolled. The included slide rails for tool-less hard drive installation worked flawlessly on the HDD, and the 3.5" adapter tray worked great on my SSD. One external drive bay is tool-less and it worked great for my DVDR drive.
Cons: I gathered all my internals in front of the box, and said, "Install these" but it just sat there looking pretty.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Cheap, Does what it's supposed to do
Cons: When ejecting tray, it seems almost like it's sticky, and slows down then speeds up. Not a big deal, but makes it seem unrefined.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This mobo has everything I was looking for. USB 3.0, SATA iii, PCI-e 3.0, 4 ram slots, 4 case fan headers.
The ClickBios is awesome, you can arrange the boot order by drag and drop!
SSD drive + SATA III = 15 second boot time into windows 7! Impressive.
Cons: Board is smaller than many ATX boards, so it doesn't use the last row of ATX mounting standoffs. Therefore, the power connector is not well supported, and it might be possible to damage the board trying to insert the power plug. I used another rater's advice, and slipped a plastic soda cap underneath the board when inserting the power cable.
Other Thoughts: Haven't tried the overclock feature yet since I'm using stock cooling. Don't overclock your CPU with stock cooling.READ FULL REVIEW
