This review is from: Rosewill Model RC-300 - Single Serial Port PCI Card
Pros: Bought this card to link an old Matsuura CNC turning center to a modern computer. Cheap and effective. Windows 7 automatically found the drivers. Had to set baud rate and stop bits to match machine in Device Manager. Still amazing that a machine built in the 1980s can talk to a modern computer.

Pros: This replaced a 5000+ Black Edition dual core. Superior in every way. Took 10 minutes to install this chip, BIOS flash included. Overclocked to a Prime stable 3.76 GHz with a FSB of 250 MHz and the multiplier (locked) at 15x. Using my old Zalman copper cooler this churns through Prime95 at 56C. Tried getting squeezing a bit more juice out of it with 255 on the FSB (3.82 GHz) and it crashed halfway through a render on Cinebench 11.5. Extremely satisfied with this chip and my over clock.
Other Thoughts: I had wanted to get the Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition but my board doesn't support the 125 Watt version and the 95 watt is impossible to find. Not removing eggs because this chip rocks.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Bought this to upgrade an aging system. Utterly demolishes the 9600GT I had in my budget AMD box from 2008. Cool and quiet. Plays FSX fluidly. Pushes graphics to single 20" 1600X900 display. Uninstalled Nvidia drivers, turned off machine, popped in new card. Ran latest CCC from AMD and was off and running. Super easy. Took 5 minutes.
