Most Favorable Review

So far, so good

Microsoft Windows Vista 64-Bit Ultimate for System Builders Single Pack DVD
Microsoft Windows Vista 64-Bit Ultimate for System Builders Single Pack DVD

Pros: More memory access. Better program loads, faster boot and shutdown, I use this with Cubase, Wavelab and Ozone3. They all work fine. Good step for 64-bit computing.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Make sure you are ready before you purchase. Do the research on hardware/software before you leap. Most negative comments are based on issues that could have been prevented with research.

Memory Fails - Beware

Ballistix Sport 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Low Profile Intel Desktop Memory Model BLS2K4G3D1609ES2LX0
Ballistix Sport 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Low Profile Intel Desktop Memory Model BLS2K4G3D1609ES2LX0

Pros: Free, One stick works enough to post

Cons: The memory doesn't automatically boot. One stick is bad, the other posts but automatically sets to 1.6 volts. Setting it per the spec results in a failure to post. Reading the other reviews, it appears that even RMA'ing doesn't help. Will contact Crucial as it says it should work. Even free, it is not a bargain.

Overall Review: If you get the combo deal, might as well buy memory anyway. this one will not work. would rate zero eggs if it existed.

Solid

Pros: Easy setup

Cons: None

Overall Review: Tried on two different 450 boards, works on one and not the other. I think it is the one motherboard that is the hold up. Stress test and benchmarks are good.

Great basic board
