This review is from: AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Venice Single-Core 2.0 GHz Socket 939 ADA3200BPBOX Processor
Pros: Great cost effective processor. decent fan
Cons: really really bad packaging material. I bought 2 of them. One had a little damage to the packaging . The other had no apparent damage at all. The internal carrier (?) is made of some crumbly, fibrous material. In both cases, it caused a significant amount of debris to get onto the thermal pad on the heat sink. You have to be REALLY careful when you clean it off as the thermal pad is very soft and can easily be damaged.
Other Thoughts: I rate this product low due to the packaging problem. AMD should absolutely know better. The good news is both processors are working great. As long as you are super careful in cleaning the debris off the thermal pad, you will be ok. be aware.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: DFI LANPARTY nF4 SLI-DR 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: nicely designed, easy install, lots and lots of goodies in the package including round cables, wire organizing stuff (mesh, heat shring, zip ties), sli bridge, etc.
Cons: documentation is definitely lacking. manual on CD is ok but if you don't have a machine to look at it, you are out of luck. for example, nothing printed about which socket to use for a single stick of RAM.
Other Thoughts: I now see why this board has about the best Mobo review ratings here. Definitely aimed at the hip-geek set. A PC tote? please just cut the price $5 and leave it out. Still, I am very happy with this board. Do pay attention to the AMD recomended power supplies.READ FULL REVIEW
