This review is from: AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ Manchester Dual-Core 2.0GHz Socket 939 Processor ADA3800BVBOX
Pros: Have had this chip for over 2 weeks. Had some early on issues due to having the chip overclocked to much and would freeze up in my games. Updated my video card drivers and updated x2 drivers and underclocked just a tad and no problems since. This chip is a lot better than my old 3000+ Venice, and with the price drop it was very cost effective. Have this chip at 2.4ghz with stock cooling. That is about as high as it's gonna be able to go, because ram is holding me back.
Cons: Why would you have a complaint! With the price of these things right now you should definitely invest. The Yonah chip is nice, but if you already have a 939 socket board go ahead and get this chip. Not intersted in the Yonah chips, until they come down in price and more mobos arfe available. Plus don't have the the time or funds to build a second system.
Other Thoughts: This chip really flies. You'll love it and it's a breeze to install. My first build and everything was to install.
My system: MSI "par" mobo. 2 gigs ram. ATI Radeon x1800xt. WD 80 gig hd. Xcellero video cooler. 3800 manchester x2 clocked at 2.4 ghz. 19 in dell flat panel monitor
This review is from: ARCTIC COOLING Accelero X2 Fluid Dynamic VGA Cooling Fan with Heatsink
Pros: Very good cooler raised my idle temps due to the case I have. Hardcore gaming I've yet seen it to go above 60 degrees Celsius. Have a ATI Radeon x1800xt so a quieter fan was due for action indeed. Everything was package accordingly and was a breeze to install.
Cons: I have a Sonata II case which has a setup to allow exhaust from processor to be blown out back of case. Cooler was to tall to install setup again, so idle temps are a little high. Like stated earlier fan is WHISPER QUITE and have yet to see it over 60 degrees Celsius during hardcore CSS.
Other Thoughts: Great card worth every bit of money that I paid for it. Bought mainly to be able to turn up the fan to 100% and not hear it, since that is impossible with the stock ATI Radeon x1800xt fans.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very good case had plenty of room to install everything that I own. My system AMD 3000+ oc'd 2.2 2gig corsair budget mem running 166mhz 80 gig wd hd, radeon x1800xt graphics card, msi k8n board, 19" dell lcd monitor. Everything in the case fits snug and wires are all tucked away. Good job newegg for carrying good products
