Pros:
Good quality, All parts and cables came intact without damage %50 cheaper than off the shelf products available locally Performance of USB 3.0 ports are acceptable
Cons:
If you have a high tower case, some connector cables prove to be too short, for example for my case & board the Audio connector for front bezel outputs were too short and I had to fix the dashboard 3 cm inside the front line. The longest cable is shorter than 1 foot (30 cm) measure and plan accordingly
Other:
The fan controls work ok and reduce noise if your board does not have intelligent fan speed control
Bottomline:
Good buy
