Cons: Purchased 2 units, both units didn't work. Could not read any floppies I had, used both units on two different computers, was not able to identify a floppy disk was in the drive.
Overall Review: Don't wast your money on these
Pros: This is a GREAT CPU!!!!! I changed from the 940 to this 950 using my Gigabyte EX58-U5D and right off the bat at stock settings with the Intel’s Turbo on I’m running at 3.2. The standard 950 DO stepping multiple is 23 with the Intel's Turbo on the CPU runs at a multiple of 24. I tried a little overclocking up to 3.6, the 950 runs at a
lower voltage (1.216) with a BLCK of 151 compared to the 940 at (1.296) with a BLCK of 158 to get to a stable 3.6 overclock. The 950 does run a little warmer then the 940, I’m using a Thermalright True 120 which keeps my temps
under control. At ideal the temps for my 3.6 overclock run between 30-33C CPU temp, and Core temps between 37-45C, under load with Prime95 my CPU temp is in the mid to upper 40C, with the Core temps running between
the mid to upper 60’sC, this is at an ambient temp of 75F The 950 is easier to get a stable overclock then the 940 was. The 950 is FAST at stock, but overclocked it's BLAZING FAST.
Overall Review: I have no doubt that the 950 will soon be setting overclocking records for a CPU in this class.
Newegg ROCKS, keep up the good wok....
Pros: THIS IS A GREAT MEMORY SET. RUNNING i7 940 AT 3.8 AND GOT THE MEMORY AT 1730 AT 1.65 VOLTS. STABLE MEMORY, RAN PRIME95 FOR 12 HRS NO ERRORS, AND THEN RAN MEMTEST +86 2.10, 15 TIMES WITHOUT ONE ERROR.
Overall Review: ALREADY GOT A SECOND SET FOR ANOTHER BUILD. CAN'T GO WRONG WITH THE QUALITY OF THIS MEMORY.
Pros: Running Extreme QX9650, 3.6, FSB 1600, this dirve installed Windows XP in about 13 minutes, and loads the OS in 35 seconds from first window to desktop......Fastest Drive I've evey seen, faster then my old Raptor, and runs quiter then the old Raptor.
Overall Review: This drive is worth evey penny of it's price......Glad I got it
Pros: Fan pushes a lot of air, have my computer on 12 hrs a day. Not one problem. Is a little noise at full speed, but I don't mind, I want a cool case, and this fan dose the job.
Overall Review: I'll be buying more of these, in new builds I do, and will also use one on my CPU HS Thermalright HR-01 Plus.
Pros: Been running it 12 hrs a day for the past 2 week, not one problem. My system includes 2 DVD buners, 5 Hard Drives, Evga 8600GTS, 4 fans, PCI sound board, Gigabyte GA-X38T-DQ6, Intel E6850, with 2 Gig of menory....the PSU gets a little warm by the end of the day, but never HOT, it's got the power to run all my gear without a problem....
Overall Review: I would recommend this PSU to anyone looking for a reliable large power supply.
Pros: This is a great PSU, runs all my equipment. Runs a little warm but with what I have running it's really putting out the amps. Fits well, I like the modular cabling use only what I need.
Overall Review: My system, Gigabyte GA-X38T-DQ6, overclocked E6850 3.6, 1024x2 DDR3, 5 hard drives, 2 DVD drives, evga 8800GTS, and a professional sound card. Checking voltages with Everest Unlimated Edition, all voltages are stable under heavy use.
Pros: GRAT RAM. Running on Gigabyte GA-X38T-DQ6, FSB 1604, E6850 at 3.610, memory frequency 802, latencies 7-7-7-20-2T, 1.9 volts, STABLE, STABLE, STABLE.
Overall Review: Came wtih a fan, but don't need to use it, not really pushing the memory with voltage to keep the memory stable, they are not hot, warm to the touch, and my case is well ventalated.
Pros: Before purchasing this board I read the few third party testing websites, and from their results and comments I decided to purchase this board, upgrading from the GA-P35-DQ6 DD2 to this new chipset and DDR3 memory. It’s a great board, easy to install, FAST, STABLE, well laid out, with all the Bios functions a overclocker would need. For rendering video’s WOW, what took me 2-3 hrs to do, now takes 20-40 minutes, now that’s FAST. I put the board through hell with Orthos and Prime 95 each for 24 hrs, and it passed with flying colors, STABLE overclocked E6850 3.6GHz memory at 7-7-7-20-2T. Gaming is GREAT……BUT
Cons: Owning this board for a week, there are bugs in the BIOS, my board came with the F2 BIOS, I upgraded to the new F4a Bata BIOS, both incorrectly identified my Intel E6850. After turning on and off 10 times at startup it posted, but setting my E6850 at 2.66GHz,333MHz,x8, it should be 3.0GHz,333MHz,x9. I wrote Gigabyte about the bug, they responded quickly but no answer yet. Since then I found other bugs. I can’t change the System Memory Multiplier, it’s stuck in Auto and won’t accept any changes, my memory is Corsair CM3X1024-1800C7D Gigabyte approved. You can change the CPU Host Frequency and CPU Clock Ratio, when the CPU Host Clock Control is Enabled or Disabled, it’s like the function is stuck in Manual mode with no automatic functionally. There are other bugs, which are to lengthy to go into here, I emailed Gigabyte about them. If you know your way around the BIOS or an Overclocker, you can work around the bugs without breaking a sweat.
Overall Review: The BIOS bugs not withstanding, this is a great board, and I would recommend it. Once Gigabyte works out the BIOS bugs, I know this will be their Flagship X38, DDR3 board. That’s why I’m giving the board a 5.
Pros: I’m glad I didn’t read any of the reviews on this case when I was looking at it. I knew what I wanted in a case, looking at the pictures on Newegg and going to the vendors site for all the specifications, I was looking for a case to match my old Antec case of 8 years, and I found all the features in this case. The clean front panel with Power and HD LED’s, Power and recessed Restart switch, 4 upper drive bays with slide rails installation, FD drive bay, and room for 5 HD with removable cage, also side panel latches, side panel venting with upper venting being a funnel type, 120mm fans front and back, without a PSU unit, and with enough room in a MID-TOWER to put all my gear. This case is GREAT, meets all my needs, the quality is very good, sturdy and well made for the price.
Cons: As for cons, anybody can find a fault with almost anything they buy. Knowing it’s a MID-TOWER, size dose play a role into what you put in it, and were you put it. I can find faults with the case, but that’s like beating a dead horse, it meets all my needs and dose what I want. A Manufacture can only do their best to make a product that serves it’s purpose at the best price possible.
Overall Review: Rosewell did a great job with this case for the price I paid. I know I’ll be buying more
of their cases in the future. Newegg ROCKS, best vendor on the WEB…
Pros: I’ve been purchasing Western Digital hard drives for the past 4 years, from their ATA, IDE, and now their SATA versions. Over the years I’ve upgraded my drives about 10 times, each drive worked with a hitch, and have all given me great performance.. This 500GB unit is no exception, fast, quite, and I know I can count on it to work for years.
I have a 400GB unit for the past 1 1/2 years still working great, with not one bad sectors, or noise of any kind. I used the other brands out there, but had no luck, all died or had
read/write errors, and bad sectors within 6 months of use. For my money I’ll always buy
Western Digital Hard Drives.
Overall Review: I will always recommend Western Digita.
Pros: I've been purchasing Pioneer DVD drives since their DVR 104, all have worked to the high standards I expected. This new version is no exception, burnes any disk I use and never gives me a coster. As long as you have the up to date firm wear, you can count on this burner to give you execllent results. Burns any DVD and CD on the market
Overall Review: As you can tell I highly recommend the Pioneer DVR-112D......And you can't beat Newegg price.
Pros: Works GREAT, quite, not one problem
Pros: This is an amazing CPU cooler. I have it installed in an Antec Performance II case with a side air funnel with fits right over the heat sink fan. Using a E6600 overclocked to 3.2MH and my idle temp stays between 23c – 25c, room temp between 25c - 26c, under load using Ortho 95 after 6 hrs my load temp never got over 47c . Idle fan rpm is at 1,100 and goes up to 2,000 under load. I also have a 120mm SilverStone case fan that is set to 2,300 rpm….cools the inside of the case very well……
Overall Review: Running a Gigabyte GA-P95-DQ6, E6600 at 3.2MH, Kingston Memory DDR2 C6400, at 184.108.40.206, all voltages adjusted to overclocking, EVGA 7900, 3 Western Digital HD 400 GIG, Creative sound card, and two DVD burners……..
Pros: I’ve been an Asus motherboard buyer for the past 10 years both AMD and INTEL, all the boards I purchased worked without a problem. I was looking to upgrade, from an AMD
Dual Core to an Intel Dual Core, but the Asus boards I was interested in, I read here that many people were having problems. So I looked around and decided on the Gigabyte P35-DQ6, well all I can say is when I unpacked the board I was Amazed at the construction and layout of the board, top rate quality. I installed it fired it up and was working in no time, not one problem, easy to install, this board is GREAT. And with
it’s ability to handle future CPU’s, higher DDR2 memory speeds, with every connection you can ever want, loads of accessories, well wroth the money. I made the right decision
in buying the Gigabyte board.
Cons: Only draw back is the push pins to install the CPU cooler, both Gigabyte and Intel should
give clear instructions on how to install the unit so all pins lock in. After looking at third
party cooler’s manuals I found out the trick in installing this type of unit the right way so
all pins lock in. I did not want to remove the Crazy Cooler on the back of the board, just
to install a CPU cooler…………opt for a third party cooler instead of the stock one.
Overall Review: Have done business with Newegg for years………their the best in pricing, fast delivery, and customer service, couldn’t ask for a better company.
