Pros: Works perfectly in Thinkpad T520 4239CTO motherboard (SandyBridge) thus far after 1 week uptime. All 16 GB are running Dual Channel 800 MHz at CL 8, 1.28 V according to CPU-Z.
Cons: Not free
Other Thoughts: Glad to see all 16 GB work at full speed in a Thinkpad T520 which a few years old now.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: BIOS supports E2 v2 out of box, unlike current SuperMicro options (2012.11.10), IPMI, 1600 ECC
Cons: Just discovered fan throttling is NOT supported with standard ATX cases. From the manual (G167972-004_S1200BT_SERVICEGUIDE.PDF), page 28: “Auto” Fan Control is intended to support standard EPSD chassis options. “Manual” Fan Control is intended to support third-party chassis installations.
Given that heat management is a core pillar of server management, I find this wholly unacceptable. This is my first and last Intel Server motherboard as a result.
Other Thoughts: no fan throttling for off-the shelf ATX cases.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill TI 2 Ports IEEE 1394a 6-pin ExpressCard Model RC-612
Pros: Works great with my Focusrite Saffire PRO 24 DSP in Windows XP SP2 on my Lenovo Thinkpad X200. Saw another review claiming difficulties with a 'real' FW audio interface. Posting to advise it works with mine.
Cons: Can't hot-swap in my Lenovo Thinkpad X200. Win XP doesn't properly allocate resources and the card is only recognized after a reboot after insertion. Fine with me though, I blame Windows not Rosewill for the problem.
Other Thoughts: Thanks, newegg, for another good deal. I've spent plenty a kilobuck here :)READ FULL REVIEW
