Pros: My wife is completing here Nursing BSN and her PC died. Wanted WIN 7 to be compatible with school requirements. Very little bloat ware to remove. Loaded Office 365 and she was back in business.
Other Thoughts: Tested with Win 7 experience tool and received a 5.9 out of 7.2.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cooler Master Elite Power - 460W Power Supply
Pros: I have used Cooler Master cases and PSU's for 8 year now at work on solftware development platforms. No problems there.
Cons: This is the first unit I bought for home/personnel use. I failed one month short of two years old. It was in a low end micro-ATX running a 5600+ Brisbane dual core and a 9800 GT and 2 IDE drives, stock settings.
Two weeks ago, my machine started halting shortly after post or boot, so I opened the case to find the PSU fan frozen. Replaced the PSU with a new one, and now the system will not boot, not even from CD or thumb drive. Gives random memory errors, so I think the PSU problem had adverse affects on the Mobo/RAM/CPU ???
Other Thoughts: I did notice about a month ago that the fan speeds in Everest were not always reporting and temps were high, so I probably should have been doing some troubleshooting then.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: If you were lucky to buy this between 8/3 and 8/9, and took advantage of the MIR and instant Newegg savings, you got this card for $49.99. I easily fits in two slots, and is short enough to stay within my micro-ATX mobo footprint. Under heavy load, I have not got it over 76 C; it idles around 50 C, with a shutdown temp of 105 C.
Cons: The fan noise is considerable, but not unexpected. If you have to have a quiet machine, consider an aftermarket cooling solution.READ FULL REVIEW
