Pros: There are none since it was DOA, what else can I say!? I tried it on the machine I hoped to install it on and another just to be sure. No output whatsoever.
The one thing I was going to enjoy was the passive heatsink which on a HTPC would have been awesome.
Cons: DOA! What a disappointment! Now I am out about 20 bucks to return this piece of junk! I should have walked away at sight of the blue screen reviews. I thought that a nVidia chip, PCB and a passive heatsink should not be a problem, even for Jaton. I was wrong.
Other Thoughts: It was a complete waste of time and money.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: MSI 770T-C35 AM2+/AM2 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Works fine once you get it to boot the first time, see cons. Plenty of features in the BIOS for OCing. I was even able to turn on the L3 cache on my Athlon II X4 620. The chip works fine, so that was a very nice bonus. You have to turn on ACC to make that work
Cons: It would not boot at first with 8g of RAM in it. I had to reduce to 4g to have the BIOS defaults reset and then 8g ran fine. This is a minor con, but it worries the hell out of you when you do not hear that beep!
Other Thoughts: This seems to have been a great find. I am glad I bought before they sold out. This was used to rebuild a working machine out of a dead HP Pavillion someone gave me. This board and a modest nVidia video card created a nice quad, especially once I got the L3 enable. The non-boot issue killed the buzz of getting a new piece of hardware, but that BIOS trick to enable the cache brought it right back! This was a fun board to work with.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Installed 2 of these in a friend's PC. Emachine with 256m and XP. System flies and they are very happy. I tested with memtest86+ overnight and it passed as expected.
Other Thoughts: If, you do not wish to look like a fool, use Kingston. Good brand name with great results. Nothing worse than having a cheap module fail memtest86+ and having to arrange a return. Key point is to use Kingston's RAM Tool on their website. You get the right RAM every time and I truly think it matters.READ FULL REVIEW
