Pros: This is a great power supply. Nice and heavy, good airflow, powers my beefy system quite well.
No complaints at all about the hardware. It's great stuff so far.
Cons: Make sure you get the mail-in rebate to them as soon as you get the unit! They have a pitifully small time period to allow you to get it to them (I think I read 21 days), and you'll get a denial if you send beyond that. I had mine mailed less than a month later, but apparently after 21 days, and of course got denied. Very disappointed in the deadline for the mail-in rebate. I'd say don't even bother considering that this has one.
Pros: Unlocked multipliers are back... 3.1Ghz stable out of the box without even stressing the motherboard or memory. Made no changes to voltage, etc... only multiplier. Fantastic stuff here!
Cons: Remember to buy a fan! This does not come with one. I just got a standard CPU cooler. Nothing fancy. Does the job fine.
Pros: Great bios options and board layout. Simple overclocking.
Cons: SB600 southbridge is aging, and not so great... Also made installing Windows XP slightly challenging without making a driver disk first.
Overall Review: Was rather disappointed in having to use a driver disk to install Windows, however after it was all said and done, I am very happy with performance for the price.
