Pros: My power supply finally died last night. But for close to 6 years, it has been running 24/7 on my main gaming rig. It has seen 3 motherboards, 5 video cards, and 4 processors.
I keep my machine at near 100% processing power trying to find cures for diseases through World Community Grid. The GPUs were all power hungry upper mid range cards. About the only time it wasn't on was durring power failures or bad storms.
Cons: Had to get a SATA cheater. I knew that when I bought it.
Other Thoughts: What I am saying is this power supply has been an absolute work horse. Very reliable, and you can't go wrong getting it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very powerful chip.
3 GHZ Tripple core is a Bargain in price only mid $80s
Cons: 4th wouldnt unlock
Other Thoughts: Did not buy the chip just to see if 4th core would open. But hey, had fun trying ;<)
Seriously though, this chip will run anything you throw at it
This review is from: BIOSTAR A770E AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Installed Easily
AOC unlocking 4th core is very easily done
Board is very colorful and looks good in the case
The Athlon II X3 435 was found right off the bat without any BIOS updates needed.
Cons: HD audio front panel connection only. AC’97 connector
will not work. (of course my case does not have HD audio)
I am using a stock X2 64 6000 fan. Even with that I can not use the first RAM slot because heat sink is right up against the ram.
Does have a 95watt limit on processors.
Other Thoughts: Great little motherboard for the money. I tried to unlock two different processors the 435 and a 440. 435 went through without any problems. The 440 failed.
Thought it was kinda cute the way it recognized the chip afterwards " Athlon II X3 B35"
