This review is from: Toshiba FlashAir 8GB Wireless Flash Memory SD Card 050332409323
Pros: Nice if you own the camera
Cons: Needs the Olympus app on the other end
Other Thoughts: If you check the final picture you can see the "not for individual sale" warning on the bag. That should be a clue that this is something odd. It's a card that goes in an Olympus camera to let it WiFi dump pictures.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great CPU
Hits 4.8 to 4.9 GHz with rational voltages and cooling
Hits 4.4 to 4.5 GHz with stock voltage (< 1.3V) on my MB
Power / heat really drops back when you stop doing stuff. >10:1 change between Prime95 and nothing going on.
Cons: Does not cook bacon
Won't clock quite as fast as an i5 Sandy Bridge
Roughly 2 to 3 % slower on most benchmarks than "fastest thing on the planet" (not a bad con ...)
Other Thoughts: If you are going to overclock, just throw away the Intel fan. It's for non-overclock use. Get a nice big air cooler for $20 to $60. There are LOTS of them to pick between.
Keep the core voltage below 1.4V and it should run a long time.
If you have temps above 70C check your case fans, they should keep the inside of the case at room temp. If they aren't - add some more.
Be carefull with "stock voltage". Not all motherboards agree on what that should be.
Pros: High end board with lots of PCIe lanes
As good as it gets on voltage regulators
Lots of features
Asus software is *very* good compared to what othes supply
BIOS updates quicker than the competition.
Cons: Not every feature is usefull for every user
Other Thoughts: See - some people who aren't verified owners like the board.
You pay a lot for this board and you get a lot. Be sure you need what you get. If you need what this board has, it's *way* ahead of the few boards out there people suggest as competition.
Still a mid range CPU. If you want high end, spend 3 to 4X more. With some luck, you will (barely) do better than what this board can do.
