MSI N750ti-2GD5TLP GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

5 out of 5 eggs Works fine with HP Pavilion Slimline Case 03/25/2015

This review is from: MSI N750ti-2GD5TLP GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

Pros: I upgraded the HP Pavilion Slimline with an Intel DH67BL motherboard some time ago. Drop it fitment on the motherboard btw. I decided to replace the Zotac GTX 640 LP I originally had with this GTX 750 Ti LP and it was a perfect fit. The necessary Low Profile height PCI brackets are included by MSI. Very quiet fans. Very nice protective plastic packaging caps along the PCI edge connector and all three external ports.

Cons: For a Low Profile card the LP bracket should be installed by default, not the regular size PCI bracket. Minor comment, that's really all I could say con wise.

Other Thoughts: No need to uninstall the Nvidia drivers if you update before the card swap. Drop in replacement, nothing to do with GeForce Experience installed.

Seagate Barracuda STBD2000101 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: While an AF drive, the SmartAlign firmware did work just fine installed out of the box in a 512K sector based Windows Home Server V1 HP EX490 (which is really just Windows 2003 Server R2 under the covers). I bought four of these, three were made in China, one in Thailand. None of them had any bad sectors and all of them were plug and play.

Cons: The SmartAlign firmware was not compatible with Paragon Alignment Tool 4. So you cannot even try to manually improve the sector alignment to 4K. This means living with some performance degradation due to firmware inefficiencies.

Other Thoughts: The retail box has printed on the side that it includes a Seatools CD-ROM. But none of them included this. Memo to Seagate: update your printing text for the box.

Mushkin Enhanced Essentials 4GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Desktop Memory Model 991751
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: High quality, inexpensive as DDR2 goes nowadays

Cons: Did not work with my HP MediaSmart EX490 server. Caused an incompatibility with the Silicon Image eSATA driver for some unknown reason. Suspect the timings were just not compatible with this single DIMM slot HP motherboard.
