Pros: - Works
- Does what RAM do
- Now I can have one more tab open in Chrome
Cons: - Technically it is DDR3L (DIMMs run @ 1.35V); not gonna knock an egg for this.
Other Thoughts: - Double checked (to be safe) memory compatibility with ASRock EP2C602 using Crucial's website.
- Newegg shipped it in a bizarre 'box': A 11"x17" cardboard sleeve/envelope. It was comical looking given the size of the RAM.
Pros: - Impressively high power usage to performance ratio.
- At idle, the fans do not spin
- When playing a game (M:LL), fans spin at ~1000 rpm, 70C
- HS+F assembly has a built in supporting plate
- Not a super long card (Extends past my ATX mobo by half an inch or so.)
- SLI connects are protected by a rubber cover
Cons: - Only one DVI port (knew this going in though, not specific to EVGA 980s). No included DP > DVI adapters.
Other Thoughts: - No backplate (not really needed though, since PCB support comes in the HS+F and there are no memory chips on the back of the card)
- ACX 2.0 (at least for GTX 980) has a solid contact surface with the GPU chip (no exposed heatpipes).
- Upgraded from a GTX 285 (yep)
- I'll be interested to see if someone does an analysis on energy savings (think along the lines of Incandescent vs. LED lightbulbs) using the GTX 980...
This review is from: SUPERMICRO MBD-X7SPA-H-O Mini ITX Server Motherboard DDR2 667
Pros: > Small form factor
> Dual Gig-E
> 6 Onboard SATA
> Uses DDR2 SO-DIMMs
Cons: > Molex MB Power - I question the reasoning behind using this. Couldn't they just stick with a 'normal' P4? No big deal really, just kind of stretching to think of any cons.
Other Thoughts: I have two of these in nearly the same configuration for my home server set up - no RAID involved. They haven't missed a beat in the half-year or so of constant up time.
Originally I had some loose DDR2 memory lying around I didn't know what to do with (left over from upgrading laptop memory.) Decided to retire the old 939 board that was serving (heh) as my server for a more energy efficient setup.
