Editors Didn't Like

  • Price (although it is justified, but puts it out range for most people), Weak accessory package
  • Drive performance with tested hardware is very underwhelming, High price, although I personally feel the price is justified. Unfortunately, not all users need 14 SATA ports and a builtin RAID card, PCH cooler fan is loud, far too loud, and I really do not like it at all, Not enough cables in the box for all internal SATA ports
  • Overclocking is a bit tougher with this platform
