Seagate Momentus XT ST500LX003 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: None

Cons: I had high hopes for this drive's performance after reading some of the reviews posted here on Newegg.

Except that my first hand experience was dismal.

The drive freezes constantly and the computer will not respond. It eventually springs to life and works OK for a very short time where the cycle repeats it self.

I thought it was what some stated was the drive learning ones behaviors and routines, but this is most definitely defective, it freezes for long periods before resuming function...

I'd recommend a conventional 7,200 rpm drive os an SSD, stay away from the Hybrid drives!

Other Thoughts: My wife is going crazy and holds me responsible for her downtime on her work computer... It was with my recommendation after reading the reviews that I purchased the Momentus Hybrid drive...

ASRock A785GM-LE AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 785G + SB710 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: After some tinkering around in the BIOS all is well, I was able to enable the "Quiet Fan" option and it is auto controlling the CPU fan speed as required. My only suggestion would be to enable this feature from the factory. I've found a lot of posts where people are confused with the 4k RPM fan speeds upon bootup.

Cons: I was a bit confused with the CPU fan settings, but after a little research I was able to get thing to work as they should have out of the box.

ASRock A785GM-LE AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 785G + SB710 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Easy installation, everything works great except CPU fan is running at full RPM. I'm controlling it with the O/C software that's included with the board. I had to purchase a new fan, I'll update if it cures the problem. The stock AMD fan worked flawlessly on the prior mother board that failed.

Cons: The Quiet Fan option in the BIOS is disabled, even with a working 4 pin CPU fan plugged into the motherboard header the BIOS states I need to plug in a 4 pin CPU fan...

Other Thoughts: The jury is still out on this motherboard... If the new fan cures the fan issue then all's good. If not I'll be calling for an RMA as a full speed CPU fan is unsatisfactory.
