Pros: Seems like a decent player, if it did what it says.
Cons: Doesn't play DVDs or Blu Ray movies. I didn't spent $55.00 to just burn or read regular files. My last one was an ASUS and it worked fine. this one seemed to have more features beings my other one was 4 years old. Never worked but waited to long to request RMA. Sent emails to LG no response. Oh well only money. Did learn a good lesson though.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I can't really give one now as I still haven't got my system running. CPU, mobo, and water block problems.
Cons: Not really a con. However I just got off of the phone with Intel as I needed to RMA this product. A lot of questions were asked and answered. I found out that this CPU will NOT work, at least for very long, if you use ram that runs over 1600 MHZ and 1.5 volts. I WAS running GSkill 2133 at 1.65 volts. This, based on tech support probably killed the cpu. The ram controller is built into the CPU and will not work properly over 1600 MHZ.
Also I run a system with an intel 990x. The ram required for this CPU is 1066. At $1000 you can bet I will comply no matter what my Asus mobo says I can use
Other Thoughts: Just thought everyone should know. Intel will replace it this time but not again if I continue using what I am now.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: XFX MBN790IUL9 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 790i Ultra SLI ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Fastest system I have ever had. Manual was great and easy to use. I have not nor do I plan to over clock this system. I updated my bios after I set up everything else because I assumed that the bios would be up to date. It wasn't. However no problems occurred. Overall a great experience.
Other Thoughts: What perplexes me is all the negative responses. I either I am extremely lucky or some of the writers are doing something wrong. Take Leroy for example. I am using a Quad core duo Q9550 processor. I am using Patriot 4GB DDR3 @ 2000 ram in slots 0 and 2. I plan on adding 4 more GB of ram. When I set up the ram I turned on EPP and the system read the ram as 2000 and boosted the voltage to 2.0 volts. It ups the voltage AFTER you reboot. I went back in and verified it. I called tech support with ram problems (defective) and the adult I talked to was very patient with me and walked me through what I needed to do. I think XFX and this board is getting a bum rap.READ FULL REVIEW
