AMD Athlon II X2 240 Regor Dual-Core 2.8GHz Socket AM3 65W Processor ADX240OCGQBOX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Runs cool, stock cooler is practically inaudible, snappy and responsive in Windows 7

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Installed in a Gigabyte 785G mATX board with 4GB of RAM and Windows 7. End user wanted to do web browsing and some web apps... This chip does just what is needed with a good price.

HIS H485F512P Radeon HD 4850 512MB 256-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Solid performance from this card. Having excellent AA performance made it a worthwhile upgrade from a 3870. Plays most of my games with high settings on 1920x1200, when I got a second card, I cranked up all eye candy.

Only uses a single 6 pin power cable.
Runs cool (with proper fan control)
The free HIS screwdriver tool?

Cons: Cards didn't have fan speed controls correctly enabled under Catalyst Control Center until the release of the 8.10 drivers and cards didn't idle at proper low speeds... I modded my own BIOS to work around that.

Other Thoughts: As soon as I put mine in, I flashed the BIOS with a proper fan profile and bumped the clocks up to 700/1100... runs like a charm.

Both of my cards are going under water blocks for higher clocks and maximum cooling.

I'm happy with my purchase.

Intel Core 2 Duo E7200 Wolfdale Dual-Core 2.53GHz LGA 775 65W Processor BX80571E7200
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: 65W TDP is a broad overstatement for probably 99.9% of these CPU's; My chip uses less than 30W @ stock speeds...

I did a quick bump of the clockspeed up to 3.18GHz (1333 FSB) while sitting at stock voltage.

Low operating temperatures.

Excellent price.

Overclocking headroom.

Cons: None. I'll be keeping this chip for as long as possible.

Other Thoughts: I run my chip in a small mATX cube case with minimal airflow. I use a Thermalright SI128-SE to cool my CPU. Load temps in a warm (85F) degree room will reach high 50C range... this sounds high, but the minimal airflow I talked about is really a close approximation to 0 airflow.

This is an excellent chip to buy if you don't need the ubertasking ability of a quad or if you just want to run a low power PC.
