This review is from: MSI 880GMS-E41 (FX) AM3+ AMD 880G HDMI SATA 6Gb/s Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: ~Unlocked 4th core of x3 Rana
~Comes with 4 pin to sata power connector--EXCELLENT addition
Cons: ~Bad driver cd?
Other Thoughts: I unlocked the 4th core of my x3 Rana and rebooted; all seemed fine. Installed windows without an issue. I inserted the included drivers disk and things got screwy--freeze after freeze--no successful driver installations. Decided to blame the disk and ran WEI--ran fluid, perfect, no freezing, no hitches--7.3 CPU, 7.3 RAM, etc... downloaded drivers on another PC, delivered them to this build, and so far the LAN has installed perfectly (downloading the other drivers currently).
Bottom line: not sure if driver disk is bad or overclocked RAM + unlocked CPU core = instability. ONLY instability appears to result from drivers cd... beware the included cd... i'll update this review later
Pros: Works perfectly! 7.9 on WEI
Cons: It does not speak English. When I asked it what it thought of my build, it just stared awkwardly at me. Come to think of it, the group of people around me looked at me strangely too. Is something wrong with me?
Other Thoughts: Quality product. Great reviews. I spent a little more to ensure longevity for my client.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SanDisk SDSSDP-256G-G25 2.5" 256GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: Works perfectly
Cons: It clearly states it's speeds--it's not the fastest drive out there
Other Thoughts: I bought this on sale for $133--that is an amazing price for an SSD that performs admirably! 7.5 WEI
The Corsair GS that costs about $230 gave me a 7.9 WEI. I'll save $100 and lose a microsecond of my life here and there...
