Plenty of juice
Pros: Recently went SLI on my system to accomodate the new 24 inch widescreen on its way as well. Video card arrived a day sooner and after playing some battlefield 2 with sli enabled my entire pc would just shut off and times of heavy load. This psu is brand new as well, it is advertised as SLI rdy, Thermaltake purepower 600 watt. I didn't do my homework tho and did not realize having 2 7900 gtx would draw even more juice than some of the older cards in SLI. Popped this thing in and everything runs like it should. Quad 12v rails are where its at.
Cons: Price, you do get what you pay for though.
Overall Review: am2 4000+ (at 2.5ghz), 2gb Corsair 6400C4pro, m2n32 sli dlx mobo, xfx 7900gtx xxx & bfg 7900gtx OC in SLI, Raptor X HD, Acer 24" AL2423, Klipsch PM 5.1 ultra spkrs, Antec P180 case, TT Toughpower 750 psu.
Sounded fantastic for 30 seconds
Pros: Amazing clarity, pounding bass, sounded amazing, all in all.
Cons: Lasted 30 seconds, I got to play an mp3 for about 2 seconds, at which point I ran some speaker test sound clips to see if everything was wired ok and then the sound died. Read all the posts bout the amp being bad, but I thought maybe I'd get a lil more than 30 seconds runtime outta them. Will not be buying Klipsch in the future.
Pros: Solid performance across the boards. Last chip was a socket 754 amd3800+. Can say the performancce difference between the two is bascially double the cpu power. Using with the m2n32sli dlx mobo and 2 gigs of the 6400c4 pro ram from corsair. Went with this model due to 1mb L2 cache. Consider myself fairly amateur when it comes to oc'ing and i was able to get this thing running at 2.5 ghz with no changes to voltages and bascially 2 changes in the bios. Bumped FSB up to 250 and HT multi down to x4 and now im running at 2.5ghz, ram at 1000mhz, cas4 timings. 100% stable at stock voltages.
Cons: Its not a core 2 ? Obviously the new intels are faster but I am happy with this processor and loving the fact that I can run SLI with full mobo and driver support with 0 bugs or problems so far. Intel mb's for sli are sketchy atm still.
Overall Review: AMD am2 4000+(at 2.5ghz), 2gb Corsair6400C4pro, M2N32-SLI DLX mobo, Thermaltake 750 psu, Raptor X HD, SB X-Fi Fatality, XFX 7900gtx xxx & bfg 7900gtxoc in SLI, Acer 24" monitor, Klipsch PM ultra 5.1 spkrs,
Pros: Fantastic stuff, running on an m2n32sli dlx, am24000+, easily oc'es to running at 1000 mhz at 4,4,4,12 and can go even higher if you loosen the timings down to the more standard 5,5,5,15. The lil led's look cool and the heatsinks are big and beefy for great cooling. I'm lovin it!
Cons: None, price maybe but I think its worth it to drop a hundred or 2 more to get some real quality ram, which this is.
