Cons: needing to use warranty
Other Thoughts: I picked this PS up to upgrade my wife's failed PC P&C 500W and RMA'd the 500W. Besides the cost of shipping it to them ( 10 bucks ) it came back repaired -bad capacitors, rather quickly. I'm using it in my current PC and haven't had a hiccup with it. I generally keep our systems clean, but the wife's computer is in a spot that gets a little more gunk in it. At least it did when there was carpet in the room, which it no longer has. Whether that will reduce the amount of dust and hair I have to clean out of it...
I forgot to mention, I RMA'd in in year 4 of the 5 year warranty period, so it held up pretty good. Dirt kills computers!.
Pros: 4 gigs for 30 bucks in one stick, short form factor means it isn't going to interfere with airflow, cables or other components.
Cons: Didn't know about the low form factor on some DDR3 ram, thought I had the wrong ram sent. not the rams fault, simple user ignorance.
Other Thoughts: Used in a Vista machine with an Intel Celeron socket 775 processor. No problems reinstalling the OS as this was used in conjunction with a new Biostar motherboard and Cooler master power supply. Vista didn't read the full 4 gigs, but it may just have been reporting available RAM vs what it was using for Video memory. honestly don't pay that much attention to that kind of thing.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TUL G41D3C LGA 775 Intel G41 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: cheap, basic, no problems.
Cons: CPU offset forced removal of a 120mm case fan. Not the motherboards fault, the fan had an adapter to allow it to fit the width of the case which bumped it out 1/2".
Other Thoughts: Good small FF board for basic computing with light expandability.READ FULL REVIEW
