Phenom Is BACK!
Pros: This thing is a true quad core. I can have fun with my 2xsli PNY 8800GTX on my M2n32 asus Moboard! Crysis Maxed out, COD, R6V.... Although im not really a gamer I actually edit videos and Photos while getting my Bachelors in Graphic D. This will make any workstation a beast!
Cons: OC can be tough if you don't know what your doing, If you got to update you MB bios...but this isnt really the CPU's fault...umm let me see. No cons, good price, good performance.
Overall Review: Enjoy!
Pros: The Price for a multiple slots, also I was able to takeout that Hitachi 1tb drive and swap it out with my 2tb drive using firewire800.
Cons: GETS REALLY HOT. shows that it has a small vent with a fan, well after opening it turns out that theres no fan. So I opened the case so it can breath better. looks rough but oh well.
Overall Review: If you live in a hot climate area with no AC be prepared for your drive to die fast. The extreme heat WILL kill it. I recommend at least aiming a fan at it if you feel uncomfortable opening it, took some effort to open the case.
Pros: The color is sleek. I was expeting a lighter more bland blue buts its not. This blue is rich and viberant. Stands out from the rest of the PSP models.
Cons: It does make some disc noise but they all do....
Overall Review: It came bundled with a 1gb stick Madden 09 and some football UMD. Sweet deal!
These VS water cooling
Pros: I purchased two of these Monstrosities, and boy I tell you they make you system not just look like SWEET but also behaves like a masterpiece. I had one stock 8800gtx in there and ended picking up a second one for SLI, I had to upgrade my PSU and added the Arctic cooler w/ArcticSilver5 to each gpu chip. So together they both took up 6 slots and I had to sacrife my Xfi sound card, but when I get some more funds I will brobably pick up anothe MB, we'll see. Literally droped 20 degrees c on one card and ten on the other since the top card is recieve all the heat from the bottom. But its worth it!
Cons: Huge, but looks awsome!
Overall Review: Make sure you have the space for these giants! Had a video probably post it later.
Pros: Fabulous range, especially when using a Usb cord and set it to either side of your desktop. Light weight, Media keys, trackball and it being wireless is a great! Using it as a gaming device is ok... (got to get used to it I guess) but over all im pleased.
Cons: Appears cheap, need to break in the track ball, and need to get used to pressing any key first before typing away.
Overall Review: I had a wired Logitec keyboard adn I prefer this no name brand better.
