This review is from: MSI P45 Neo-F LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: This is a basic motherboard, you get what you pay for. If you want more features such as sli, firewire etc you will need to buy a more expensive board. If you don't need those things this board is good. I am running a Intel core 2 E6300 overclocked from 1.86 ghz to 2.8 ghz, Evercool Buffalo cpu cooler,4 gb Kingston hyper x ram, Gtx 260 video card and a WD raptor hard drive, and two 120mm case fans. This set up scores a 5.5 on cpu (stock was 4.9) and 5.9 on everything else in Vista and a score of 1297.6 in Passmark ( stock was 959.3) with a max temp of 47.6 under full load. I may try to get the full 3.2 ghz out of this chip later this week. If you overclock just make sure you have a good cpu and case cooler
Cons: Bios could have more selectable choices. The manual could be more discriptive of what the settings do and it could have better overclocking instructions.READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: This cooler does what it is supposed to do for a very good price. I have overclocked my E6300 cpu from 1.86 Mhz to a 2.8 Mhz with a max temp reading of 116.6 F under heavy load using this cooler. Using passmark 7 my cpu score went from 1418 to a 2037. Overall score went from 959.3 to 1297.6.

Pros: I was very confused about which memory to buy for my toshiba satellite u204-s5057 laptop. New eggs memory config tool did not list my laptop so I bought it from Crucial, on my invoice found out that the ct577755 memory is the same as ct2kit25664ac667. I paid $118 from crucial and would have prefered to buy from newegg since I ordered office 2007 from them the same day. New egg needs to update their config utility for laptop memory, ended up costing me more money. I always try to buy from Newegg. good service, and fast shipping.
