XFX Radeon RS RX 480 DirectX 12 RX-480P836BM 8GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Works fantastic on Win7 64

Cons: I have 4 partitions for operating systems..... the MAIN OS is 32bit...... there are no drivers at all for it and it appears that AMD has no intentions of creating 32bit drivers. Verify this on the AMD site for yourself. The last cards to get 32bit drivers were the R5, R7, R9. When manufacturers say PREFERRED on 64bit, they actually mean ONLY ON 64bit. Nobody has 32bit drivers, NOBODY.

Other Thoughts: I prefer 32bit for common everyday / office operation. 64 is great for CAD, games, etc. But the 32bit is still the fastest and most stable (tech and engineer for over 20 years).


5 out of 5 eggs Easy fix for BSOD / overheating 11/10/2016

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 R5 (rev. 1.0) AM3+/AM3 AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: You only need GC Electronics 10-8109 SILICONE HEAT SINK COMPOUND to fix the problem (about $8 fix). USE SILICONE GREASE, as CPU greases harden with time and heat, thus causing the problem again.

Cons: You have to pull the motherboard out of the unit and detach the SB heatsink and NB / MOSFET heatsink. Then you will see the problem.... the grease has hardened and is acting like a heat insulator between the chips and heatsink.

Other Thoughts: Remove grease with Q-Tip and alcohol from both the heatsink and chips... CAREFULLY.... do not scratch the heatsinks and DO NOT rub too hard on the chips, the grease will break loose.... then with another clean Q-Tip, smear a coat of the above heatsink grease on the tops of the chips. I also put a thin coat on the foam sinkpads that go on the mosfets. Mount the heatsinks back on the motherboard and re-install motherboard. You might also consider pulling the grease off the CPU/heatsink and putting the silicone grease on there... I have NEVER seen a heat issue when using this grease (a decade of using it and HUNDREDS of computers later and no heat problems...... and the CPUs and heatsinks don't "bond" together where they have to be broken apart!).
I use the silicone grease on ALL computers and laptops that I build...... one tube will do well over 100 CPUs! (if you don't "pile" on the grease..... a little bit goes a LONG WAY!


1 out of 5 eggs Pandigital out of business since in 2012 07/29/2016

This review is from: PANDIGITAL PAN8059MW01T 8" 800 x 600 Digital Photo Frame

Pros: They WERE nice products!

Cons: There is no warranty, as claimed.

Other Thoughts: Pandigital filed bankruptcy in 2012 and there is NO WARRANTY on ANY item from them. They even voided the current warranties on their products in their bankruptcy! This seller is promoting a product for NEW prices, knowing that it is product manufactured before 2013 with NO WARRANTY.
