AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb Quad-Core 3.2GHz Socket AM3 125W Processor HDZ955FBGMBOX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs good processor but ear plugs required 03/15/2011

This review is from: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb Quad-Core 3.2GHz Socket AM3 125W Processor HDZ955FBGMBOX

Pros: Good price & performance balance

Cons: The OEM heatsink fan sounded like a small jet sitting at the gate.

Other Thoughts: Put this on a home server that runs 24/7. Could hear it in my bedroom at the other end of my four bedroom house. I had modified my old Quantex case during the rebuild to accomodate a slightly oversized power supply and thought that was the issue--until I cracked open the case and realized it was the heatsink fan. Replaced the heatsink with a Scythe SCSMZ-2000 92mm Sleeve CPU Cooler. That did the trick without going to one of the monster coolers that required dismantling everything to mount backing plates. So $25 and a little labor latter I have a cooler and quieter box.

If you are considering this CPU, strongly consider an aftermarket heatsink. Otherwise a good choice for general use.

ASUS M4A78T-E AM3 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs good price/performance combo 03/15/2011

This review is from: ASUS M4A78T-E AM3 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: One of the few Asus left that has a connection for legacy floppy dirves. Makes loading RAID drivers a lot easier than the workarounds when you are installing a Windows OS to boot RAID drives.

Cons: Some issues with the serial header on the second board, but that may not have been the MB's fault.

Other Thoughts: Bought one of these in December to rebuild a workstation. Windows7 runs really smooth, although I use it mainly for office apps and web browsing. Not exactly testing the limits.

When my home file server began to expereince lockups in March after five years of 24/7 service, I just bought another. Runs Windows 2003 server R2 well too. Again, it is not exactly stressed acting as a home file server, WeatherDisplay weather station software and backup software, but I'm satisfied. Probably the eighth build I have done and Asus has always been a reliable product for me.
