Pros: This thing is unbelievable! I've never seen an AMD with realistic overclocking headroom like this. I upgraded from an old Socket 939 X2 4800+ running 2.8Ghz to this thing and I can't believe the difference! Playing Mass Effect 2 fully maxed out, only 3 cores jump from around 800mhz-3.6Ghz and i've never varied from the 60fps cap! Bad Company 2 fully maxed, the cpu never goes above 55%! I can convert videos while burning a dvd, streaming pandora and playing Bad Company 2 and I never see a slowdown!
Temps are incredible too! These are my numbers with Turbo Core enabled and stock voltage on both runs(first try too!):
800Mhz 16.2C idle, and 3.6Ghz 41C 100% load
930Mhz 27C idle, and 4.6Ghz 52C 100% load
I didn't even try past that (because i was installing drivers as i did it...) but i guarantee i could've hit 4.5 with a tiny voltage increase(and a better psu), even with the stock cooler. Absolutely amazing!
Cons: I can't see what this thing is capable of yet because of my graphics bottleneck. ATI 5870, here i come!
Other Thoughts: I chose this over the i7 930 because 6 real cores prove to be better than 4 physical and 4 logical. Bad Company 2 definitely agrees and so did my wallet. After Motherboard shopping, it was final.
I still can't believe I could afford a 6-core processor. Thank you AMD!
-AMD II X6 1090T Black Edition
-Asus Crosshair IV
-2x2Gb G.Skill RipJaws DDR3-1600
-XFX GTX 260 Black Edition
-RAID-0 Raptors 74Gb(soon to be replaced by RAID SSDs)
-RAID-0 WDs 250GB
Pros: useful for what i did
Cons: Originally, i wanted to use this for my OS and 2 Raptors for my games.the boot sector on it was corrupt so i used the DOS commands to correct it but still didnt work. i could never install XP to this hdd and ended up using it as storage. it did that fine, but only for a couple months. now its failing and i need to replace it.
Other Thoughts: It never worked right in the first place. There were many bad sectors from the first time i scanned, i never installed my OS on it, and now, after 4 months, its failing. awesome. glad i spend my money on it. WD here i come!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: PLANTRONICS GAMECOMPRO1 USB Connector Circumaural Gaming Stereo Headset
Pros: EXTREMELY CLEAR AND AWESOME BASS!!! i actually had to turn down the bass cuz i was getting dizzy lol. i have the bass boost setting enabled and it gives everyone's voice realism.
Cons: after 4 months of abuse, dropping and cord-yanking, i messed up the grey volume control. but 2 months later, i resaudered the wires and it works perfectly again! i moved from a $20 w@lm@rt headset to this and the bass/treble was so different that i was getting headaches lol.
Other Thoughts: im glad i bought it cuz my x-fi sound card $h!tt3d out on me(cracks/pops and eventual constant screech-anyone know the answer?)READ FULL REVIEW
