Cons: Both failed memtest86 out of the box, bluescreen after bluescreen and one of them had a crushed heatsink. Waited a week for two two bad sticks of ram that has to be sent back. What a joke.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro H70 CWCH70 120mm High Performance CPU Cooler
Pros: Phenom II 1055t @ 3.7GHz never gets past 38C running Prime95 for 10 hours straight.
Other Thoughts: Had to shoe horn this thing into a Rosewill R220 mid-tower, check your measurements first. Intake of air should come from outside the case for best performance. Also added a 92mm exhaust fan on the side panel window to pull the hot air out of the case, setup works perfect. Fans are a little loud but speedfan can fix that in a heartbeat, only need to run them at about 60% or 1500 rpm anyway.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-890GPA-UD3H AM3 AMD 890GX HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Lots of features, seems like a well built board.
Cons: Dont really know where to begin so disgusted with this thing, crossfire with two gigabyte 5770's is not going to work. Tried everything, forums friends etc. just wont run smoothly. Crossfire is extremely choppy, blue screens, black screens, gray screens you name it I have seen it with this mobo. Had to remove second vga and just run 1 card cause the frame rates are so low, overclocking either gpu at all causes crashes have to run stock clock speeds in crossfire. This thing is a disaster, dont buy this.
Other Thoughts: Recieved an old revision 2.1 board instead of the newer 3.1 at the time when I ordered it.READ FULL REVIEW
