Pros: processor is good with stock speed no overclocking due to poor stock cooling. by far im glad i made this purchase
though im only an average user with only browsing the web and watching movies, i played watchdog and it doesnt slow down at all cant wait to oc it once i upgrade the cooling
Cons: AMD should give us an option with different cooling , my cousin bought the 8 core version and i notice it had the same heat sink and fan as mines, with 4 100mm case fan blowing from every direction inside the case the idle temp was 80f on normal room temp, in the hot summer days it gets pretty hot
just ordered a better cooling so i can oc it and prevent it from overheating
Other Thoughts: AMD fx6300 six core
16gb of memory ram

This review is from: ASUS M5A97 AM3+ AMD 970 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
Pros: i pair this board with amd fx6300 six cores, 16gb of memory ram and ati 2gb video card, still using stock bios as of i dont want to update yet
the pre loaded software that came on the cd is good
tune your pc on the fly. first game i play on this rig was watchdog, everything ran smooth without any crashing graphics and data speed was alot faster and quality pictures than my console games. adobe cs6 was alot faster compare to my old board specially when im doing photo editing off raw image i have had no issue with this board so far and its been 6 months of ownership i also recommend a good flow case the heat transfer from the processor can get pretty hot
Cons: the bad, i dont know if its the motherboard or the video card
im only using hdmI output to my monitor and during boot up
just black screen till it gets to the window log in screen ,
though if i plug in the vga cable im able to access the bios screen and such need to figure out how to get it to work on hdmi output only
Other Thoughts: i have had good results with asus as my old computer was asus with amd dual core that ran for 6 years and i sold it to a friend who still use it everyday i think the board they make now isnt as sturdy as the ones they make back then when dual core was introduceREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: D-Link Xtreme Gigabit Router (DIR-655) Wireless N300, USB SharePort, Gigabit
Pros: great router when working properly, need to setup when using with verizon fios actiontec router.
support ps3 and laptop decently with wireless connection. also great customer support. they guide me through the setup and i was happy after that, no more dropping connetions
Cons: this does not work out from the box as of you need some tech skills, the first week i got it the router works for a few days, after 3 ps3 was connected playing call of duty mw3 also with laptops connected to it wirelessly the router began to act up,
lag spike like crazy and also very glitchy conections.
then all of a sudden it decide to drop all connections to a halt, would have to reboot router to get it workiing again, i left it sitting collecting dust for a good 2 month then decide to use it again but this time i called customer support to get some help.
Other Thoughts: i use this router to extend my lan connections from third floor actiontec verizon router to 2nd floor, hard wire ps3 to router, i would not reccomend gaming console for this router when using wireless. laptops and smart phone connect just fine but dont expect full speed out of the router when using wirelessREAD FULL REVIEW
