Overclockers dream

DFI LANPARTY UT nF4 Ultra-D 939 NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra ATX AMD Motherboard
DFI LANPARTY UT nF4 Ultra-D 939 NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Overclocking features like you wouldnt believe... Stable, plenty of features, great support, stock northbridge cooling is very sufficient.

Cons: None to speak of...

Overall Review: Do not hesitate to purchase this board for a 939/PCI-E combo, worth every penny.

outstanding little chip

Intel Core 2 Duo E6320 - Core 2 Duo Conroe Dual-Core 1.86 GHz LGA 775 65W Processor - BX80557E6320
Intel Core 2 Duo E6320 - Core 2 Duo Conroe Dual-Core 1.86 GHz LGA 775 65W Processor - BX80557E6320

Pros: Reasonable cost great Performance

Cons: none

Overall Review: Stock heatsink is very acceptable unless you have other plans beyond default speeds. Stable @ 460x7 (on air - 41 idle 53load) which is a considerable increase from the default 1.86ghz. If you get a decently binned chip then there is massive potential there waiting to be tapped into.

Not bad

Pros: Budget friendly price/performance

Cons: color and timings

Overall Review: Holds DRR2-900 @ 5-5-5-15-25 but with 2.1v. Had a bit of an issue trying to get default timings of 4-4-4-12 below 2.0v but really no huge deal. If you dont have an enormous budget and looking for something decent then these sticks are alright. No where near stellar, but still capable.

Excellent product

Pros: Superior cooling for the price. Easily mounted Very quiet

Cons: My only issue was with how large the thing is.

Overall Review: To date, THE BEST Air hs/f I've used for any cpu I've owned. Opty 148 with my Zalman 7700 use to idle around 31C and load 45C. With this, I'm idle 23-25C and load around 36-37C Couldnt be more happy, however make sure you have a case with plenty of space and air flow, or you will regret it.

Quite happy

Pros: Excellent preformance Runs quite cool Decent software bundle

Cons: Fan on 100% can be a little...loud

Overall Review: Quite the jump from my 7800GT. IQ has noticably increased. Having a slight issue with VPU recover, working on resolving it though. Also having problems with Omega Display drivers. Other than that, I'm very happy with my preformance increase. My 7800GT was pulling around 7600 on 3Dmark05, this card (with a small OC) can achieve nearly 10k points. My preformance in FEAR, Oblivion, COD2 and BF2 is great, and as my second Sapphire card, I'm still a satisfied customer...just need to fix a couple minor things and it would be perfect. Dont be afriad to purchase this card. However if you have the extra $80, drop it on the X1900 line, as this series is quickly being phased out.

Great Drive

Overall Review: Second maxtor drived owned So far I'm very happy with this purchase.
