Most Critical Review

Motherboard came in bad

Foxconn C51XEM2AA- 8EKRS2H AM2 NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI MCP ATX AMD Motherboard
Foxconn C51XEM2AA- 8EKRS2H AM2 NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI MCP ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Nothing couldnt even test it out

Cons: I bought this motherboard to upgrade a system. I spent about 600 dollars on parts and encountered "various" problems. Hooked this motherboard up to my old pc case and hardrive. Thought the hardrive went bad so i bought windows xp home and a 250 gb wd. Tried booting again. Nothing would come up on the screen. Thought the video card was defected so i sent that in for a replacement. After about 3 weeks of frustrations trying to figure it out, i took it to a computer store near my house. After about 4 days i got a diagnostic for 60 dollars and they found out my motherboard was bad.

Overall Review: Really hope newegg will send me a replacement.

Good

Transcend 4GB (2 x 2GB) 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Dual Channel Kit Laptop Memory Model JM667QSU-4GK
Transcend 4GB (2 x 2GB) 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Dual Channel Kit Laptop Memory Model JM667QSU-4GK

Pros: Installation was painless. Installed in a HP Dv6700t laptop. Booted up the laptop and it instantly read all 4 GB. I can finally use the vista experience with the extra ram after upgrading from 2GB

Cons: I am a bit dissapointed because I did not see a speed increase. This is probably due to the fact that This is PC5300 and not PC6400. I updated my windows score and I still had a base score of 3.5 with a RAM score of 4.5. My system already is using about 40% of the Ram which does not make sense because before I had 2GB it would use 50% on idle.

Overall Review: This is great RAM for the price but I should have upgraded to PC6400.

Perfect
