5 out of 5 eggs Cooler Master does it again 07/24/2011

This review is from: COOLER MASTER Intel Core i5 compatible GeminII S RR-CCH-PBU1-GP 120mm Sleeve CPU Cooler

Pros: -Fits both AM3, 775, and i5 boards
-Cools remarkably well
-Reasonable price
-Silent 120mm fan

Cons: -None

Other Thoughts: I picked up one of these to cool a friend's 775 Pentium D, overlocked like hell. Runs 3.5ghz at a stable 44'C on load.

Check out the reviews online for this thing, and see for yourself why its such a great deal.

5 out of 5 eggs Still one of the best deals online 07/24/2011

This review is from: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb Quad-Core 3.2GHz Socket AM3 125W Processor HDZ955FBGMBOX

Pros: -Unlocked multiplier
-Second generation quad-core
-6 MB of cache
-Easily overclocks up to 3.8ghz or more

Cons: -None

Other Thoughts: I picked this up a over a year ago for my latest build. Watercooled, I have this thing running at a pleasant 4.2ghz at 37'C on load.

Handles everything I throw at it. It may not be an i5 or i7, but at this price it can't be beat.

Reccommended for hardware enthusiasts who enjoy pushing their components to their limits.

MSI R5770 Hawk Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

4 out of 5 eggs Entry-level to Mid-level card that packs a punch 07/24/2011

This review is from: MSI R5770 Hawk Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: -DX 11
-Low power consumption
-Only requires one 6-pin connector
-Excellent overclocker, with unlocked voltage

Cons: -Crossfire only works with fullscreen games, not windowed
-OpenGL applications may not run properly, and may require more advanced driver modifications to get them to work
-Flash video crashes at random
-"Cursor distortion" bug still lives on with this card and even the latest catalyst drivers

Other Thoughts: My first real AGP card was a Radeon 7500, then a 9600pro, and have always been a fan of ATI.

I picked up two of these to run in crossfire, and I wasn't disappointed...

...Until I attempted to run games in windowed mode and was only receiving the power of one card. I also suffered OpenGL application errors and glitches that only seemed to occur with the Radeon 5XXX series or later, such as bodes reappearing in Doom 3.

I also suffered constant flash video crashes, making streaming video a gamble everytime.

The famous "cursor distortion" bug still occurs with the latest generation of Radeon cards, where the only fix is to reboot your system. Players of Starcraft 2 with a Radeon card can attest to this.

Overall, the card is still a great bang for your buck, as long as you are willing to deal with the above issues. I still test this card occasionally to see if any of the above problems have been fixed, but sadly they have not. I have since switched back over to nVidia.
