Pros: They arrived
Cons: Item as described, rapid charger.
Overall Review: Wasted my time
Pros: system is trash it looks bad and sticky no pros
Cons: system is trash it looks bad and sticky no pros
Overall Review: Well people hear my warning, you do not want a Newegg synchrony card, they will troll your credit every 3 months, their credit system flags certain shopping behavior and their system lowers your credit limit within 5 dollars of balanced owed, why they switched, simple GREED, Newegg your sales will go down at some point, because the financing wont be there. I never miss payments think again that your safe from this practice well your not safe because it is how synchrony does business
Pros: Works great, Lowered my temps by 3, replaced an exhaust fan in Cooler Master Stryker.
Cons: seems a little cheap
Pros: Somewhat, Fast but not really. I do not agree with taking eggs away for this being a small drive, because we can clearly see its small. Mounting is no problem if you have a case that can mount it which I do.
Cons: Not very fast, not impressed noticed massive slow downs, almost seems like the shipping environment maybe long periods of heat or humidity has caused hard drives from Newegg to be an issue of not working correctly. I ordered 1 EVO, and one Seagate sshd and both were not working well.
Overall Review: Has to be something going on at the warehouse or ups.
Pros: They move air a lot of air, their not loud.
Cons: This is my second set my first set works great.
I am sure these were returned because the stickers were in different positions, the red rings have strange marks on them so I did not even put them and just returned them.
Overall Review: Why would these seem to be open.
Pros: works all settings on ultra getting 40 fps with Batman, but it crashes when physics is turned on, games problem not the cards. works so so.
Cons: 300 is way to much money, I do not feel this card is worth 300 dollars with a game that is a mess in the first place.
Overall Review: I do not feel that this card is worth it, maybe I should have waited. I also think there's sort of a scam to bundling games with cards, once you get the game code you dl the game so when your nice new shiny card comes you can game right away that is until you realize the card is not worth it, and then get stuck with a game that is unplayable
Pros: I will say this "I am on stock video" until my card get here, and the game works just fine maybe a hiccup here and here, My system setup is I5 devils canyon, 8 Gigs of corsair vengeance ddr2400, I was surprised that this game uses almost all 8 gigs so I will probably buy 8 more gigs of ram.
Cons: a couple hiccups here and there on stock video now if I still have these problems after my 370 gets here then I will be peed
Overall Review: Not sure why I did not get my other free games
Pros: works like any ps, not very impressed
Cons: Some cables are just to long and others are just to short. it fits a cm storm stryker case but the 24 pin cable is tight.
with a full tower still felt cramped, not happy at all with this ps.
Overall Review: Next time I will investigate a little better.
Pros: well it's a cable it does what any ipod cable does
Cons: Here is the con it's cheaper at waly world and at waly world it's 14.95 and comes with a car charger LOL
Overall Review: wounder why this dont come with car charger
Pros: this chip i got it here from newegg new retail chip for 155 on a promo the egg ran price was right for a good chip newegg has some great prices perfect rma support just all around great shop.
Cons: so i'm not impressed with tis chip even at a overclock of 2.8 i'm not impressed if ur gonna pay the price for this chip just wait and buy the 6750 or quad 6600 theres nothing to see here move on it's performance is under par from all the praises of core 2 duo cpu's it reminds of of Pd line of cpu's except the e6550 runs cooler i do own this chip and it does nothing to make me say wow.
Overall Review: intel e6550, xms ddr2 800 2 gig,
p5n-e sli, vista 64 bit, 8800 gt
this is the set up i used cooling is zalman 9700 nt. nb chip thermalight hr-05-sli and sb Thermaltake CL-C0034 Copper
this is my excact set up 7 fans all set up to move warm air out of case. case blows cold air. this cpu is'nt worth the price
Pros: Well i've had this motherboard since jan of 07 it runs fast it runs stable runs good. it has alot of oc options but stock is great too even if you dont over clock. this motherboard can take a beating and keep on ticking should be called timex p5ne-sli
Cons: I will have to say this board has some problems ide placement is alful hard to plug ide cable in because of odd placement i have a full tower case and it's realy a bother to hook it up. i will be buying a new dvd rom with the sata cable instead of keeping my ide dvd rom fixs that problem for me unless you have old ide hard drives then your gonna have to deal with the odd placemnet of ide controlers. other then that i'm happy with this mobo it's not realy a con but somthin too know hands on depending on ur case your gonna have to place your cd/dvd drives on lower bay if u have full tower or buy a longer ide cable.
now heat seems realy bad with this motherboard north and southridge chips get hot south bridge runs hoter then the northbridge does.
Overall Review: well it's not in the 680i class but it is in a class of it's own i would buy it again if i did over theres alot to learn from this board and how easy and how hard building a pc can be alot of complaints about this motherbard but most of the complaints about doa are wrong it's all about the timings on memory asus set the time of ram at 555 so when your doing 444-12
motherboard might not post just research asus website forums about this board and make sure all hardware will work with your p5n-e i realy like this motherboard
Pros: this boards has tons of features to many to list theres alot
Cons: this board is nothing but buggy to many problems with ram i got lucky once with corsair xms 2 ram it took me hours on off with the power to get lucky enough to post. this thing is timed at 555-15 setings on ram will have a hell of a time other wise geting this thing to post. i had e6550 cpu and windows vista 64 bit prem on this and it ran fast but after 1 week it died from heat not because i had bad case or bad air flow. atermarket cooling on this mobo and it seemd to cool the mb it's self but not enough north bridge gets way to hot this thing would not be good to oc i'm telling ya get water cooling if u wanna oc this board no board should get over 50c's and this did it would run cool then climb slowly i've never rma'd any thing but i had to rma every thing but video card cpu ram and mobo witch i doubt it's cpu but just in case still rma'd it cooling is a must with this chipset water coold even the 680's get to hot not as hot as other boards of the same type ether it would idle very
Overall Review: hot so hot hs could not be touchd north bridge needs a revamp it's just too hot on the 600 series boards. it's not worth the stress or headach for this board buy the 680 atleast they have some form of cooling on the chipsets
Pros: ok wanna make this thing stable. gonna have to put ur build together only install 1 stick of ram makes things simple. turn pc on if u see no screen but lights come on inside case it;s ram problem make sure it is seatd in far end yellow slot first then boot again if you get into start up set your timings for ram. and what not 4-4-4-12- then 2 clocks
set voltage to 1.9. then set cpu fsb if you have a newer cpu that supports 1333 fsb u have to set it your self in bio's once this thing is stable you can UPDATE THE bios TAKE MY ADVICE RIGHT NOT IF YOU HAVE A USB FLASH DRIVE OR U CAN HAVE USB MEMORY CARD READER JUST DL BIOS FROM ASUS LOAD THEM ON FLASH DRIVE THEN PLUG IT INTO THE PC GO INTO ASUS EASY FLASH AND U WILL SEE THE BIOS PLAIN AS DAY MAKE SURE TO LOAD THEM AND UPDATE WILL GO FAST. NOW IF UR LIKE ME I DONT HAVE FLASH DRIVE BUT DO HAVE DIGITAL CAMERA AND A USB MEMORY CARD READER I LOADED MY BIOS ONTO CAMERA CARD THEN FLASHED THEM WITH MY USB READER WORKD FLAWLESS
Cons: NONE. JUST DONT WASTE TIME WITH FLOPPY DRIVE TO MUCH TIME BIO'S WILL BOOT LIKE LIGHTNING WITH FLASH DRIVE
Overall Review: GREAT BOARD LOVE IT
Pros: PRO'S INSTALLED very fast used this on south bridge asus p5ne-sli 650i board. installs fast heatsink is very very cool to touch. has 2 push pins work flawles holds to the southbridge like a champ. do not need to remove motherboard for the instal ether witch is nice
Cons: well i have the thermaltake spirit 2 on north bridge very heavy in copper works great instaled perfect by my zalman 9700 nt. this thing is so cheaply made for the price realy should be bout 10 dollars no joke i stress for what ur geting you wont see your money's worth here. lets see you can add a fan to this witch is cool but you mount it with zip ties man zip ties thats pretty lame you would have to cut the ties off if fan go's out for 25 then shiping not worth it. cooling though is worth owning but price stinks for what you get. i dont feel like i got my moneys worth
Overall Review: this thing does cool well i dont have a fan on mine but i have it right infront of intake fan it gets slight air flow from that. i gave it 5 eggs for the cooling aspect it does cool great. but it's about as heavy as 2 or 3 empty soda cans
Pros: theres to many to list i'm not joking just did new build first time i ever built my own gaming pc. this os installed in about 5 minit's.
Cons: none. only thing i can see is half the reviewers donw own this or just have slow hardware this os deserves 5 eggs down the board
only buy vista that has aero in iit. this os wont be good for lowend pc's so unless your runing a good machine forget it get xp
Overall Review: newegg needs a better review sytem to let only users who own the product write the reviews. this is worth every dollar and penny. all i can say is let people knock vista but i'll keep useing it and laughing it's great
Pros: great cooler does it's job perfect
Cons: cons floridabiker is about half DUMB this thing is a 10 minit install very simple screws cant be to short ether dont listen to this nub.
Overall Review: the screws go in perfect if u put some force pushing in the screw it's only one screw that uses force tension not that big of a deal if u start the screw in the hole then push it into the thread all of 2 seconds maybe not that long
Pros: it's a perfect cpu cooler it's a simple install.
Cons: none. but one for the nub who wrote about the size of screws must be missing some in his head theres no way the screws are to short there made like that to put more tension on the cooler to keep it snug.
Overall Review: this cooler is a snap when building from scratch theres no con in having to have mobo out of the case to install on intel mobo's. it's only a con for riewers who dont even own this cooler like the zalman guy he is clueless this thing is a 10 minit install at the most thats puting in the case and hooking every thing up to mobo
Pros: pro's newgg had 20 off any thing over 100 and i got this baby for 20 less gotta love newegg for deals and it ship to my house in 2 days WOOT WOOT
Cons: NONE did'nt even use the heat sink and fan with it just went with zalman 7900 nt
Overall Review: well the price was price and this thing works great fast what more do i need other then wuad core
Pros: it's perfect it's not for a beginner by far. still nice for tweaking and oc. nb gets hot but add a fan. south bridge gets got needs a cooler. thermal take spirit 2 works and it dont block the video cards in sli i have 1 on both chips.
Cons: none had old bio's had to put ram in yellow slot far end to get it to post. then had to set bio's on cpu and ram and voltage. set ram. to 1.92 volts. set timeing 4-4-4-12. set comand per clock to 2. northbridge to volts. 1.3. set cpu to what ever your bus speed is on ur chip. then set the ram to what ever mhz you have mine was 675. then it will post and you can get into bio's if u get os error try seting ur hd to large cap instead of small. and every thing should boot up.
Overall Review: ram time should be from top to bottom on times so for ya nubs it will be 4-4-4-12 then perclock 2. till you get everything started then try oc
Pros: it's a tough mobo we've been thru alot does a great job
Cons: none only con i can think of is how some of these reviwers gave it bad reviews. most realy good boards are not for the Novice it's a fact these borads got alot of praise and some said even better then the striker. noobs dont buy parts unless you know what your doing. shame to give this thing 1 or 2 eggs this is a solid mobo with alot of oc options
Overall Review: hmm maybe the people who buy parts and complain about asus should just stick to prebuilt pc's and just deal with best by geek squad or dell
Pros: GREAT MOBO CANT BEA THE PRICE ETHER HAS ALOT OF FEATURES BETTER KNOW YOUR STUFF when seting every thing up works perfect
Cons: none realy but if your gonna push this baby you will have to get a better northbridge cooler or mount a fan on to it. i went with after market cooling on north and south bridges. will note if you wanna replace the northbridge on this just take a pair of toe nail clipers while pushing in pins on back of mobo just slightly clip the ends off of the plastic pins. then use the point of the clippers to push it back through takes about a minit to remove it that way
Pros: COOLS GREAT GONNA BUY ANTOHER ONE FOR SB THIS WILL FIT WITH THE ZALMAN 9700 VERY EASY INSTALL IT IS HARD TO REMOVE THE PINS ON P5N-E NB CHIP THIS THING WENT RIGHT IN
Overall Review: PRICE IS HIGH BUT WORTH THE MONEY
Pros: big case lots of room good cooling like how wires can be hid real good
Cons: cons the paint job on this thing is bad slightest of anything and it's scratchd even the side panels are geting messed up it's bad when you get a better paint job on a dell and for some reaseon the tooless shizit sucks it works great for the HDD but sucks for the cd/dvd burnner some models wont work with the rails and you have to mod the hell out of what they give you
Overall Review: well other then the tooless stuff and bad paint job it's perfect i might just paint it another color somthin to make it pop out since it looks cool in it's own
Pros: REAL FAST INSTALL fits in transfomer mid case with a whole lot of room to spare have it on asus p5n-e 650i bord even with the stock it still fits along side it just need to change 1 screw to a bolt type screw to mont it there sounds like work but it's none at all worth the money
Overall Review: size is'nt that big i did'nt think. was'nt sharp i must have moved the cooler 4 or 5 times not a single cut or nick and anyone who has trouble installing this cooler needs to not even take the side panle off there case cuz they dont know what there doing
Pros: nice case good price it almost seems like a full tower case it's so big and cozy makes me wanna hide out in there with my girlfriend. realy it's that big
it does the job it cools real good right along with my zalman CNPS9700 nt cpu cooler
Cons: none great case. dont get why people knockd this case even by one egg. loud not if you think about it no one ever said cases with this many fans is silent. but you can always buy a fan controler to lessing the sound of the fans.
Overall Review: only thing that makes me wounder is why have 2 removable side panles the tray comes out if it does someone let me know LOL
