Pros: New Egg pulled one over on me. I figured that if I could trust anyone buying a refurb it would be NewEgg. NOPE. They have gone downhill slowly over the years with the ease of dealing with a bad product. Now they are no different than most retail shops and cost is something that no longer drives my purchases.
Cons: Laptop has crapped out after LIGHT usages of less than 6 mos.
Other Thoughts: New Egg has always been the first place I look when contemplating a new computer related purchase. This experience and the downhill slide in customer service has changed that. NOT A HAPPY CAMPERREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: I just installed this on a ASUS Rampage III Gene. The instructions are a pain IF you just look at the pictures and don't read the header for each picture. This is designed to work on multiple platforms so you have to pay attention to which one you're using. It is HEAVY. Installation was easier for me with the MB out of the case. I have an I7-950 and even without a fan it runs at acceptable temps.
Cons: It doesn't come with a fan. The description has a fan included but my package did not. Being the impatient techno geek I am I built my system without it and it was ok through system installation and basic setup. Not great but ok. Trip to Radio Shack the next morning and then I was very happy with the temps.
The screws used are slotted for a phillips screwdriver and it would have made installation ALOT easier if the design of the cooler allowed access to these without the wrench.
This review is from: MSI G31M3-F LGA 775 Intel G31 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Easy to install and get to POST. Had no problems at all.
Micro board so makes your case seem bigger.
Cons: Since this is a Micro board space on it is limited. The way the SATA connectors are set up in a square you will lose two of them if you have a long video card...8800GTS etc.
I think 4 low profie right angle SATA connector cables may allow the use of the 2 that are under the card but I haven't gotten around to it yet.
