Intel Core 2 Duo E8600 Wolfdale Dual-Core 3.33GHz LGA 775 65W Processor BX80570E8600
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Intel rock solid reliability. Low power consumption & runs cool

Cons: Price would be the only con since this cpu is priced dis-proportionately higher than the next step down cpu(e8400)

Other Thoughts: I've been running this cpu for over a years with no problems I did not install the cpu fan that came supplied with it, but instead used a heatsink fan from a intel core2 quad (Q6600). The Q6600 heatsink is larger than the stock E8600 & uses a steel frame bracket (instead of the plastic one used on the E8600) to attach it to the board. I removed the push pins & used spring loaded screws & a steel back plate. This set-up worked great with no "flex" in the motherboard & the CPU runs plenty cool & the fan runs very quiet all the time.

USRobotics USB 3.0 Super Speed 2-Port USB PCI Express Card Model USR8402
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Good build quality. adequate spacing between the ports for oversize USB devices.

Cons: None that I can find.

Other Thoughts: This card has ample spacing between the USB ports for larger USB plugs, which is one of the reasons I chose it over the others Newegg sells. Build quality is better than some of the other (cheaper) cards too.

4 out of 5 eggs Disabling the annoying POST beeps 02/18/2011

This review is from: Intel BOXDG43GT LGA 775 Intel G43 HDMI Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: I've had this board for over a year now & I will say that it has been reliable. (See other thoughts) for the annoying POST beeps

Cons: Updating the Bios can be risky on ths board (for all late model Intel boards for that matter) See "other thoughts"

Other Thoughts: Updating the BIOS to version 0035 will disable the POST beeps. Also, updating the BIOS should not be done before going to the Intel website & searching the support forum for "updating BIOS on DG43GT" There is very helpful info that should be followed
