This review is from: ZOTAC GF9300-G-E LGA 775 NVIDIA GeForce 9300 HDMI Mini ITX Intel Motherboard
Pros: OK, Hve had this for several months, though only got it built-out a month ago.
Very nice all-in-one type of mini-itx. Running a C2 2.5Ghz on it, not overclocked. Running Windows Server 2008 R2, and its about as fast as my E6750 2.6Ghz system on an Abit IP-35e.
Cons: GPU does run hot, mine came with one of the plastic pushpins on the gpu sink stripped. Replaced with a nylon washer from HD, and its solid, though still rather warm.
I've had a couple of issues with it locking out at either screen saver start, or something. I can hear it sound the 'ta da' wav when I try to Ctrl-Alt-Del back in, however blank screen saver window stays up. Not sure if this is an OS issue, or the gpu maybe getting too warm.
Consider getting a decent active cooling gpu fan, or a cpu fan that will blow a little air to the side onto the gpu sink.
Other Thoughts: This was one of the Rev. 0 boards, so hopefully many of the minor issues are resolved. I believe wake on USB has been solved in the latest BIOS, even though it does not say so in the change notes.
I bought this for use as an HTPC/browsing box for the living room. Hoping it will play some light games like L4D. Of course, the x16 PCI slot will take cheap 4850 if need be.
This review is from: GIGABYTE 3D Mercury Pro GZ-FW1CA-AJB Black Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case
Pros: Works, fan control, helps OC my C2 2.6 to 3.6 at ~50c under load
Cons: It is a little large, however if you have a lot of drives it is what you want anyways.
A few too many LED's for my taste.
Other Thoughts: Have had no problems with this in the past year. You may want to wait until Black Friday and see if they go on sale again. I think $250 is a better, fairer price.
Remeber, you are getting an Aluminum case, decent PSU, the block and radiator are decent as well. You also get a plxiglass window along with a metal screen type one.
This review is from: SUPER TALENT Pico_C 32GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model STU32GPCS
Pros: I have the current 8GB, its been on my keyring for the past year+. No problems, corruption.
I am waiting for the Gold one, as they had for the 4GB I believe. Its on Super's website, just need NewEgg to stock it.
Cons: Newegg only carries the silver colerREAD FULL REVIEW
