Pros: sale price...dual fans
Cons: short cables...probably for a workstation...kind of light weight also
Overall Review: By the time you buy extensions for your connections you could have spent the extra 5 bucks to get something else
Pros: price...condition..packaging...24 in hdtv 130 bucks cant beat that...color great refresh great tv tuner great
Overall Review: mine looked un touched.....refurbished?
Pros: cool....quiet....well built....must have
Cons: ugly colored fans and some what pricey...but not really cons....IJS
Overall Review: Had to use 4 different hardware monitoring programs to make sure I was seeing what i saw....Idles barely above ambient and have yet to see above 115 f (sorry I live in the USA) with stress tests.... quad cores with a slight OC in a pcmedia HTC case ....get this
Pros: price performance ratio....black edition....cool, stable, quad core
Cons: are you kidding
Overall Review: I purchase these anytime I see them on sale...A quad core black phenom II for fitty bucks....upgrade your mobo and its off to the races.....I stopped at 3.7mhz @1.48 on core voltage on air and still super cool..even with the bios utility overclock you can get 3.2 @ 1.4 volts..unless you're in a FPS war you wont notice the difference
Pros: Dirt cheap...basically plug and play...dual band
Overall Review: have purchased about 5 of these and all work extremely well....so well My household of three desktops and two laptops is completely wireless....used in a couple builds over the past year and have not had one complaint
Pros: plug and play...I didnt have to adjust one single item
Overall Review: hmmmmm
Pros: cool cool cool....push pull config....direct contact with heat pipes
Cons: had to remove the second fan but I have 2 120's pulling hot air out the top of the case....bent the fins trying to use it with both fans
Overall Review: cpu ice cold and lovin it....need room if you're gonna use this
Pros: price...features....am3+ socket
Cons: a little hiccup in the beginning...but went to asrock site downloaded new drivers...problem solved....one issue was the core unlocker...wants to unlock all four cores....I have a BE dual core with a bad fourth core...with this board cant do individual cores to get my tri core
Overall Review: asrock Rocks!
Pros: cheap dual core ...possible tri or quad...
Cons: poor packaging....bent pins had to RMA
Overall Review: whats funny is I got this huge box with a processor in it and the pins are bent...looks like the chip was forced into the foam and went all the way thru to the boottom of the plastic packaging
Pros: Price 80 bucks...single slot....no power cable.....inhales anything I throw at it....cool packaging....software crossfire....stays cool and quiet...DX 11
Cons: crossfired and only heaven benchmark would use both cards....100% on 1 card and 20% on the other....no other app would use second card...not really a con but in crossfire I could smell stress on my board although no temperatures indicated it...replaced the vga cooler and it made a world of diiference...stock cooler is ok for average users

Pros: 20 dollar hollar....dual band netgear....
Cons: Not about the product but for the people who give this item low eggs and rma it...it sucks plugged into the back of your computer being obstructed....just use the usb cable adapter to place it somewhere unobstructed and it works like a charm

Pros: cheap...makes me look smart (lol)....plug and play
Cons: no no
Overall Review: gotta have for your HTPC
Pros: user friendly...no need to read instructions (a least for me) ...lots of room...quality product...snowflake on my RIG DAWG!....price is nice....tool-less...silverstone quality...fan slots for u fanatics
Overall Review: in my haste to get the build finished I installed stand-offs which jacked everything up and forced me to dismount and remount the mobo LOL...lessons learned don't use stand-offs with this case...added this case to my budget builds...silverstone has lost their mind for sellin this case for 50 bucks...get one b4 they realize it
Pros: unlock cores in the bios
Pros: cheap....works great and good distance...nice side bar feature qnd indicator lights
Overall Review: Using with my HTPC....didn't know what I was missing
Pros: cheap...got it for 21.00....relatively quiet....did I mention....Sony
Cons: Door and tray kinda hesitates before opening and the process is rather loud. It startled me the first time I opened it.
Overall Review: would definitely buy another .....21.00 holla
Pros: quiet...solid build.....cheap....no led for HTPC ...moves more air than expected
Overall Review: unless you are an extreme gamer these will satisfy most applications
Pros: Unlocked multiplier...black edition...cool....unlockable cores...got mine for 80 bucks
Cons: price increase due to core unlocking becoming common knowledge
Overall Review: People who are having difficulty unlocking the addittional cores should take a look at your mobo. the lower end mobo's( under 100.000) tend to be unstable . I initially put this and one other in a asus m4a77d mobo and could only get three cores stable. upgraded to m489gtd and both cores unlocked minimal effort on my part. i have since unlocked cores on different builds making sure to get a mid range (above 100.00) mobo
Pros: Bigger than it looks on the website. I usually rip out the included fans with cases but this thing is whisper quiet. Power supply on the bottom so you're blowing fresh and cooler air across the PSU components. Blue illumination of all fans cool. fan on top which was helpful in the installation of an ac freezer pro(removed the fan for easy access). More sturdy than it looks
Cons: None...maybe its not free
Overall Review: The air flow thru this beast is amazing and the way it was shipped was super. I literally had to rip up the box to get it out.
RIG: this case filled w/asus m4a77d..penomIIx2 unlocked to email@example.com...4GB pc2 8500 (1066) ..EVGA GTS 250 OC...3 500gb HDD...Ulra fan controller...Corsair tx 750 PSU
Pros: Unlockable 3rd and 4th cores. Quad core for 80 bucks Cool and fast. up to 3.2ghz with just freq adjustment
Cons: Get these b4 AMD or newegg realize the new market of core unlocking and jack up the price
Overall Review: Mine seemed a little unstable with the 4th core unlocked. I went to 3 cores and everything smoothed out. Prolly do some more tweaking and comment later, RIG Asus m4a77D mobo..this cpu w/unlocked 3rd core pumped up to 3.2ghz.gskillddr2 10600..evga gts250 OC,,,corsair tx 750 and rosewill cruiser black gamer
Pros: Kewl looking and serves its purpose. Easy install and lots of lenght on the wires.
Overall Review: digital readouts is cool.
Pros: this is it. dont skimp on this
Overall Review: Last a long time. while the other stuff dries out and cracks this stuff is still produces
Pros: It does the job. Its quiet and Its the only cpu heatsink I use on builds including my own. I've always been a fan of blowing the hot air away from the cpu versus blowing down on it.
Overall Review: Get it. Its durable and quiet and gets results. Next best thing to water
Cons: a little tight if you have monster GPU's
Overall Review: inverted dvd drive bay may take some getting use to
Pros: Handles anything i throw at it, looks cool very stable overclocking, price
Cons: none, well maybe one "its not free"
