Pros: Am2+/3 (in theory), 8 sata slots with an external expansion card for esata (not onboard), 2 16x 2.0 pciexpress slots. This thing works great with my am2+ phenom 2 3.0ghz without a problem! 3 year manufacturers warranty.
Cons: Can't really run 1066 mem at rate speeds over 4 gigs. Sata slots are at a weird angle, I suggest placing sata cords in the slots BEFORE you mount it in your case.
Overall Review: I'm willing to bet Gigabyte will fix the am3 problems people are having. As it stands right now, I recommend just going with the am2+ version of the phenom 2 until they do fix it and maybe one day I can run 8 gigs of ddr2 mem faster than 800.
Great for servers, doesn't work with anything else
Pros: High RPM, very good price point.
Cons: Like other reviewers have stated, these fans are actually 48v and will not work with most if not all non server motherboards. Don't even try to use a 3-pin to four pin otherwise it'll just smoke or not even turn on at all.
Overall Review: I wish Newegg would state the voltages on these fans, now I have to find 12v 120 mm fans and hopefully maybe I will find one that has 3000+ rpm.
Doesn't hold a charge
Pros: Cheap and economical (in theory)
Cons: Doesn't hold a charge after charging it on my usb slot. Turns on while plugged in, but after I unplug it (even after of a day of "charging") nothing, not even a blinky light.
Overall Review: Don't buy, get something else. Going to RMA it
Great Case with a few flaws
Pros: Big, lots of room for expansion and the two big ole fans are extremely quiet.
Cons: Cable management really sucks for this case. If you have more than 2 hard drives, good luck trying to keep the power cable up and away from hitting the big fan. It took me two hours to get it right and what I ended up having to do was place the sata cables underneath the black bar that the hard drive holders are at (you will know what I am referring too if you get this case). Hopefully it won't stress the sata power cables too much.
Overall Review: Just be aware of the cable management issues, but for the price you really can't go wrong.
Died after a few days of use
Pros: Cheap, 5 year warranty.
Cons: One day it just died. Customer turned off the pc and it turned off by itself and never turned back on again. Embarrassing considering he paid good money for his PC.
Overall Review: Stick to Corsair or Silverstone. It just goes to show that even these supposedly "high end" power supplys have a tendency to fail.
