Cons: I could always use faster timings.

Ridiculous box1/1/2009 1:39:16 PM

Pros: The box made me laugh - it looks like something you get from a tourist trap in chinatown. Quiet for how much air it moves, seems decent in construction.

Cons: No adjustable speed...not that I was expecting one, but Newegg wants me to have some cons in here.

Overall Review: There are tiny black clips that hold the wire in to the little channel that routes it out to the side. These are removable AND re-insertable if you decide you didn't want to take them out.

Super Writemaster1/1/2009 1:36:40 PM

Pros: It says "Super Writemaster" on it. looks good, works well, runs fast.

Cons: Makes a screaming noise when it's spinning fast, but it spins really fast, so it's not unexpected.

Exactly what I needed1/1/2009 1:34:53 PM

Pros: Works. Isn't ugly.

Cons: Doesn't change my life in a meaningful way.

Overall Review: Vista took a few days to realize I wasn't planning on uninstalling it anytime soon, and kept telling me my device was safe to remove. It figured it out after a week or so.

Zoom zoom zoom1/1/2009 1:33:14 PM

Pros: Overclocks like a champ. Fast to begin with.

Cons: Not as new as the core i7s.

Overall Review: If you need 4 cores, and don't have the money for a better chip, this is your one. If you only need 2 cores, look at the e series, they'll be better for you.

Great card, bad drivers1/1/2009 1:31:24 PM

Pros: Card works perfectly, went in smoothly, looks great, and isn't TOO loud. CCC is useful.

Cons: the 8.12 catalyst drivers (and possibly others) do NOT work with monitors under a certain resolution (mine is 1280x1024 and doesn't work) with the DVI port. I'm stuck on the VGA port until ATI remedies the problem, hopefully with 9.1 this month.

Solid and Good-looking to boot.1/1/2009 1:28:16 PM

Pros: Box came with everything I needed, and more. Cooling looks great, from a performance and appearance standpoint. BIOS options are extensive and useful.

Cons: I'm really just not a fan of Gigabyte's website.

Overall Review: Blue is your color scheme if you get this board.
