EVGA 01G-P4-2650-KR GeForce GTX 650 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

1 out of 5 eggs Arrived DOA, pink artifacts even in BIOS 03/14/2014

This review is from: EVGA 01G-P4-2650-KR GeForce GTX 650 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

Pros: Cheap, small, powerful

Cons: DOA

Other Thoughts: GPU arrived DOA, displaying pink memory-type artifacts even in BIOS.

Scythe SCKMPN-1000-SL (Silver)
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: The packaging appears to be from the future. Possibly some Neo-Tokyo.

Cons: Unit is very cheap and flimsy, card reader froze computer. Frankly I'd be worried about long term installation, with regards to fire hazard. Avoid, save yourself time.

Rosewill RC-208 PCI IDE (ATA) Silicon Image Host Controller un-RAID Card - Also Supports Window Vista Ready
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Controller uses Silicon image 0680a fw ver 3.0.12, provides support for 4 atapi devices. Bios/boot is quicker than other add in pci/pata cards.

Cons: Optical drives register as Multi-Word DMA 2 instead of udma 0 - 6 as they should. The normal hack to get around this with the SI 0680A chip is to flash to an older fw version, but the EEPROM that Rosewill used is non-standard so it cannot be flashed.

Other Thoughts: I built a 10 drive cd replication machine, will be buying one additional controller. So far, with 4x cdrw on the mobo controllers (ich6) and 4x on this one Rosewill card I can burn @ 52x to all of them at once.
