This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-G41MT-S2PT LGA 775 Intel G41 + ICH7 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Great board for legacy hardware.
Cons: One egg off due to the memory limitations with 4GB sticks. The board works with most 1GB & 2GB RAM, but not 4GB sticks. If you're looking at 4GB sticks, beware, only two or three brands are listed on the QVL. Samsung, AMD and Apacer I believe are the only ones, otherwise you're stuck with 1GB or 2GB sticks. .
Other Thoughts: Good board to breath life back into older components, but the fact that you're pretty much limited to 1GB or 2GB sticks, kinda defeats my plans. I bought two 4GB sticks to max out the RAM and guess what, no go... Now I have to spend more money to buy more RAM and wait longer to get it going.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great case
Cons: How can it be out of stock, I was going to buy another one....
Other Thoughts: I originally gave a big thumb down for the rebate turnaround time. I had my dates wrong and, in fact, the rebate came in the time specified. Sorry, Cooler Master for the bad review, you’re still my favorite manufacturer.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I love this case. This case has room for all your stuff without having extra, unused space. It is also very easy to modify. Very easy to get to and work on components.
Cons: I can't really think of any cons, maybe it could come with a top fan or have windows instead of the top or side vents? Maybe make it an oppion? One thing, don't plan on moving it too much. Once it's all together with all your components, you won't be able to move it, the rubber feet are great but grab the surface like crazy.
Other Thoughts: Over all this is a great case. I'm transplanting everything from a Cooler Master 932 HAF to downsize the footprint. It is larger than you might think, it's 1-1/2 the size of a full ATX board from the back to the front of the case. .I'm finding it very easy to modify. I took the X-Dock cage out and mounted it where the regular drive cage was so I could still us the SATA back plate. I have no need to S/O HDD's so it worked really good. I also made a matching hole out of the X-Dock area of the case so my Koolance 402X2 Pump/Reservoir would fit and it looks great. I also took the rubber baby bouncers off the bottom and drilled, tapped and ran screws on some wheels I had from another case so I could easily move it once it is all together..READ FULL REVIEW
