This review is from: ARCTIC COOLING A7P-75000023 92mm CPU Cooler
Pros: nice quiet fan well isoated
Cons: Did not fit on my board. The mounting pins were not in the correct position no matter how hard I tried to make it fit. Went back to my old heat sink.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good price per GB, so far so good. Seems pretty quite to me.
Cons: Not a lot of help installing it from Hitachi. This is a bad choice if your computer only has SATAI, and you want to transfer your operating system from the old drive to the new one.
Other Thoughts: Compared to WD, Hitachi provides little support in configering the drive. It comes set up as SATAII but if you want it to run as SATAI you have to install it in a system that HAS SATAII and then run there their software from bootup to make it SATAI. They also do not provide any software to move a drive image from one drive to the other the way WD does.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASRock 4CoreDual-SATA2 R2.0 LGA 775 VIA PT880 Pro/PT880 Ultra ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: I upgraded my system. Purchased a Radeon Vapor-X HD5770 and installed it next to my Nvidia GeForce 7800GS. Everything is working just fine and the Windows graphics experience jumped from 5.6 to 6.0. Rest of the setup is Bios 2.20a with 4GB OCZ DDR2 800 installed (see only 3.25) and a 5200 overclocked untied at 3200 and 700W OCZ PS, running 3 DVI monitors.
Cons: Perhaps the fact that the PCI-e slot is only 4x will bother me at some point, along with the fact that I am wasting almost a GB of memory, but right now the machine is running just fine.READ FULL REVIEW
