Pros: I have a dual core 665K OCed to 4.0GHz stock voltage, stock fsb, 4GB of ram.
With All settings maxed except MSAA which is 2x I get 45-50FPS and it doesn't go below 39FPS ever.
This card has the best cooling solution available, is quite, and runs cool, to boot it is factory overclocked 10% and fully stable at that speed.
Cons: Too expensive. AMD needs to lower the price. $200 would be more reasonable.
Overall Review: Great card 5 stars! Price should be lowered to compete with Geforce 600 series which score better for less.
Pros: Will play almost any media file even high def stuff!
Can connect huge external hard drives full of stuff!
Netflix and hulu plus, and they keep adding stuff :)
This thing is awesome buy it or I will punch your mom.
Cons: Lacks some features I really like on the roku, like national news, amarzon, and all those cool free channels, would love to see roku release a device that supports all the file types the western digital tv live plus does.
Overall Review: To those who say netflix won't work in other countries you can use an American VPN and set it up in a router that supports it and connect that router to the western digital tv, problem solved.
Pros: I have a i5 655k unlocked 32nm cpu. It does 4GHz stock voltage and stock FSB. This keeps nearly at ambient temp at idle and about 5*C above ambient when under load. Using Arctic Silver 5 What more can you ask for?
Cons: I replaced the junk sleeve bearing fan with a double ball bearing 110cfm fan.
Overall Review: Buy this or I will punch your mom.
Pros: Changed multiplier to 31, left voltage at stock settings and left fsb at stock speed.
Nice to have a 4GHz CPU running at 80*F/26.6C under load
Cons: too much money
Pros: Chair is comfortable.
Cons: This thing was a beast to assemble. Nothing lined up quite right on mine.
This is a nice chair but not $160 nice. Go to walmart and get a comparable model for less.
Pros: Catalyst 10.2 drivers FINALLY support this card. LOL
surprisingly good for most games I play
Cons: would have preferred a 1GB version but this was on sale
Pros: Cheap, won't cut your fingers had free shipping promo
Cons: fans are cheapo junk replace with better quality fans
Overall Review: meh
Pros: Does a good job, doesn't require being bolted to the motherboard.
Cons: Wish a bigger unit like the coolermaster 212 was available at time of purchase
Overall Review: meh.
Pros: Lightining fast, runs extremely cool, has decent integrated video.
Cons: expensive for what it is amd has a better value
Overall Review: Normally I never buy intel, I am an AMD guy. My friend blew up my computer somehow, so I figured I might as well get a 32nm cpu and intel is the only manufacturer right now with 32nm. buy AMD or I will punch your mom.
Pros: Great basic motherboard, good integrated video if clarksdale cpu is used
Cons: no USB3 or SATA 6Gbps :C :C :C
Overall Review: buy one that has sata 6Gbps and USB3 or I will punch your mom
Pros: Dirt cheap, Performs almost as well as the 2nd gen intel SSD's, 64MB cache.
Mine came with the latest 1.4 firmware which supports trim under windows 7.
I've never had something this fast, it really has been the most effective upgrade I've made in years.
Cons: Very small for windows 7, but was able to hold all my programs and still have 15GB left over.
Pros: Long Lasting Battery, Upgradable With MicroSD Slot, Interface & Sound Quality Decent, Price is right
Cons: Its Pink.
Pros: Dirt Cheap, Aux in for MP3 Players, Sounds Decent
Cons: None for its price
Overall Review: Buy this or I will punch your mom
Pros: Tested with dead pixel tester, no dead pixels. Images are crisp and clear, easy on the eyes. Vastly superior to my acer 19". This thing is huge. The price is right.
Overall Review: buy this or I will punch your mom
Pros: It's a nice case, I'll give it that. It's got some cool features like screwless hard drive and cdrom install, snap in pci-e cards etc.
Cons: I spent how much for the gee-whiz factor? I wanted a roomier case, this is a standard small case with some neat geewhiz extras thrown in.
Overall Review: gee whiz, could have spent money better on a full tower
Pros: Passes memtest86+ 72hrs+
It works just fine in my Gigabyte 790X AM3 board, no errors at all after 72hr stress test.
Overall Review: cheap no frills ram, it works.
You want to blow $400 on cool blinky looking ram that gives you .0001% extra performance when you could have had a better video card?
You go right ahead.
Pros: Keeps my 720BE 17X200 3.4GHz (stock voltage) at
17C/62.6*F in an air conditioned room when idle.
Never seen it go above 25*C/77*F even under prime 95 stress test.
I did however replace the intake fan with a 110CFM fan and used the included fan as an exhaust.
Running Arctic Silver 5
Cons: It's big, but jeez man, I've never had such a cool cpu.
Overall Review: Buy this now, or I will punch your mom.
Pros: Dude... Just wow. I love this board. It's so fast, and tweakable. I just want to cuddle with it at night.
But seriously, its everything I ever wanted in a motherboard.
Cons: It won't marry me.
Overall Review: Buy this board, or I'll punch your mom
Pros: 3.4Ghz 200FSB and 17X Multi STOCK VOLTAGE
Passes Prime 95 newest version for 48 hours STABLE.
Passes AMD and Nvidia Stability tests for 48 hours STABLE.
This thing is SO FAST ITS INSANE!!!!
Did I mention the price point $140 for a cpu that reaches near Core i7 speeds???
Cons: Not a con really, but the stock heatsink sucks, replace it with a huge dual 120mm fan radiator like I did.
COOLER MASTER RR-CCH-LB12-GP is nice
Overall Review: Buy this now or I will punch your mom.
Pros: Comes With 9 High Quality Cameras. Would be a great system if there was a way to archive the video from it.
Cons: Software Does Not Allow User To Backup Files In A Reasonable Amount Of Time. Using a 3.0GHZ E8400 Dual core and 4GB of ram it encodes video at 0.8 frames per second. Now imagine you have 2 weeks worth of data to archive. There is no way to directly extract video data from the unit must use the badly written software from manufacturer. The program uses a screen capture program and hogs the screen of the pc running it, you cannot do anything else while it encodes your weeks of real time video at 0.8FPS. Give me a break.
Overall Review: Don't buy this until they release some software which actually allows you to backup your video.
Pros: 1.35V Vcore, 200Mhz FSB, 16X multi, 3.2Ghz, AMAZING BUY THIS NOW!!! To heck with intel..
Cons: well... there are none..
Pros: Absolutely Amazing!!!! Runs Cool 90F/30C Running Arctic Freezer, and AS-5. 3.0Ghz Rock Solid Stable at stock FSB and voltage, simply raised multiplier to 15X. Running on Asus M2A-VM ATI690G chipset.
Cons: Can get to 3.2ghz but that is the absolute maximum stable frequency without increasing voltage, decided to stick with 3.0Ghz.
Overall Review: BUY IT... it faster than the phenoms! XD
Pros: runs great, no errors memtest86+ 1.70 nine passes, too bad its at DDR2 800 speeds
Cons: Will only run at DDR800 speed, CPU-Z reports on the SPD info that it needs 2.2V to run at DDR1066 speed, my motherboard M2A-VM can only supply 2.1V in the bios and it just refuses to post if manually set to DDR1066
Pros: 1. Make sure you have a good cooling system. If you are running over 120*F its most likely not going to be stable.
Arctic Silver 5 is recommended.
2. Make sure you have a good motherboard which was designed for Overclocking. Most Asus boards a up to the task.
3. Update your bios to the newest version. I had to do this before I could get the most potential out of this cpu.
Pros: Why is everyone Bashing this CPU?
Dual 3.2GHZ, Stock Voltage and FSB, runs cool, Its a much better deal than any Intel CPU at $120 bucks!
