Pros: This thing is AMAZING! It is a 3D gamers DREAM!
I can play Wolfenstein 3D – AND – use note pad, get this… AT THE SAME TIME!
The frames per second BROKE while doing a Wolfenstein 3D bench test… It had an “overflow” error.
Last valid FPS I saw was 18,000… Mind boggling!
They say, this thing is capable of video editing? So I was playing a video game, and opened up a notepad file. Was able to edit it!!! I was soooo stoked!!! Until…….
They also said, and I quote, “Handles anything I can throw at it!”
which leads to the cons.
Cons: WARNING! Does NOT handle anything you throw at it! I threw a brick at it… and sure enough, it smashed it to pieces. I tried to RMA it, but they told me the warranty was void!! *sad face*
I would advise to “not” take anyone’s advice to throw anything at this CPU. Bad idea!
Other Thoughts: Honestly, I don’t see why ANYONE would want to over-clock their computers… I tried this the first day I got mine. Set my clock 3 hours ahead…
I was THREE HOURS EARLY FOR WORK the next day!!!! Who in their right mind would want to do this, purposely??
I do not OC any more. You guys are nuts.
I recommend this CPU. Especially if you are a 3D gamer and do editing.
Even if you happened to listen to some goobers advice and throw something at it, and break it…
Yes, I bought a replacement. I had to replace the motherboard also… apparently, they cannot handle stuff being thrown at them either!!! *facepalm*
This review is from: ARRIS SURFboard SB6141 8x4 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem
Pros: VERY reliable!
Super FAST speed!
Super easy setup with Comcast.
Cons: BRIGHT LED lights. WAY TOO bright!
You'll have to put something in fron of it (that doesn't reflect much light either).
Other Thoughts: No need to write a long winded review on this product.
I used (rented) comcast modems for 8 years (yea, dumb move), and regularly had to reboot them (at least once per month, because they would just stop working.
Got this 8 months ago and have yet to have to reboot this modem ONCE since have owned this.
My bandwidth is supposed to be 12Mbps. I regularly download at a sustained 3.8-3.5 MB/s (~30Mbps).
I downloaded a 15GB game from Steam yesterday in about 1.5 hours.
My setup with super easy with comcast. I basically powered all my old gear down. Hooked the new modem up and powered everything back up. Sit there and watched it do its thing... all by itself... and after a couple of minutes, was back online.
It activated automatically.
You may or may not have to call your provider. We had to call comcast when we installed one at my mother-in-laws house. Only took them a couple of minutes.
No hassle at all.
Buy this. It's a great product.
