Product Shot 1 The Pros:Great for system tweakers - includes a CPU core unlocking mechanism. Potential for lots of system memory - great for power users. Value - offers a fair amount of features and options for the price.

The Cons:Doesn't support Windows 98/ME. Mediocre DDR3 1600 support - only compatible with certain memory modules. The overclocking switches are inconveniently located under the graphics card position.
