Pros: Low power usage, inexpensive rebuild. Great for server or Home audio visual PC. Reasonable speed (two cores). Has usb 3 and sata III. Video out VGA, HDMI. Will take large amount of Memory 16 GB.
Cons: Confusing Bios settings, AHCI F6 loading not explained in manual for XP. Buggie XP installation. HDMI worked for about 5 minutes.
Other Thoughts: I install XP 32bit using the VGA connection, then transfered pc to TV room and installed the HDMI cable. Booted up great and adjusted to TV quickly. Within two minutes the screen flashed dark then came back, did this four or five times. After five minutes the color went to black and white like it would when you shut your PC down and stayed that way until I installed the Dsub VGA connection to the TV.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes
Pros: seems to maintain a temp well below 50 c (range 28 deg to 49 deg)
Cons: Much bigger than I imagined.
The fan does not calibrate properly with the Motherboard controls.
Other Thoughts: Suggest adding another fan in a push pull arrangement and use the second fan as the speed control reference. Then is works great and is pretty quiet.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: installed easy, functions perfectly (new install of Windows 7). Fast large file transfer speeds.
Cons: no cons
Other Thoughts: I was surprised that the 4k file transfer speeds were as low as 20 Mb/s but that is still over 20 times the speed of a standard spinning plater Hard Drive. But this seems to be the norm for SSDsREAD FULL REVIEW
