2 out of 5 eggs Activity LED problem with Seagate 10/23/2009

This review is from: BYTECC BT-135E-BK 3.5" SATA Aluminum Drive Case

Pros: All metal construction. Fan is part of the tray so you don't have to open the case if it fails.

Cons: Using Seagate drives, the activity LED stays on all the time. When there is activity, the LED gets a little bit brighter. It's hard to tell if there is activity or if the drive is constantly being accessed. With Western Digital drives, the LED goes out when there is no activity. Bytecc tech support is blaming the Seagate drive design, but I have no problem with the activity LED when Seagate drives are used in a backplane from a different manufacturer.

3 out of 5 eggs S# resume problem with unlocked Sempron 140 10/04/2009

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-MA785GM-US2H AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 785G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Built in HD video support, firewire. Was able to unlock second core of a Sempron 140 by setting EC Firmware Selection to Hybrid and Advanced Clock Calibration to Auto.

Cons: The motherboard would not resume Windows from S3 standby. Gigabyte tech support is abysmal. I submitted the problem to Gigabyte tech support. First they did not understand the problem. When I corrected them, they asked me questions that I had already answered in my initial request. They never seem to read any of the prior history of the issue, so you have to re-state everything each time, otherwise they will ask you a question that you have already answered and don't get around to actually addressing the issue. Finally, after ten days of back and forth, they suggested resetting the BIOS to default values. That disabled the second core of the Sempron 140, but then resuming from S3 standby now worked. In short, enabling Advanced Clock Calibration makes resuming from S3 standby stop working. Gigabyte's response was that enabling ACC is an overclocking function and they won't support it.

3 out of 5 eggs No S3 standby with Sempron 140 10/03/2009

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-MA785GM-US2H AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 785G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Built in HD video, firewire. Got this in a combo with a Sempron 140 45W CPU, which can be unlocked to dual core by setting EC Firmware Selection to Hybrid and setting Advanced Clock Calibration to Auto.

Cons: The Sempron 140 does not come out of S3 standby with Advanced Clock Calibration set to anything other than disabled. Gigabyte tech support is horrible. I was exchanging emails with them for 10 days before I figured out the problem. They only read the last email you send through their web site and ask you questions which you have already answered in a prior email. Their final response was that because I was using Advanced Clock Calibration, in effect, I was overclocking the processor and they would not provide support for the S3 resume issue.

Other Thoughts: Bummed because the 5050e 45W CPU is no longer available.
