Overall Review: Newegg is crazy fast with shipping.... but everyone says that so.

Most Critical Review

DOA... Sadness...

Pros: Well, good specs, modular, had great reviews

UPDATED REVIEW: Front Fan

hec Prime Black 0.8mm SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Black Computer Case
hec Prime Black 0.8mm SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Black Computer Case

Pros: Works: This is an updated review Front LED isn't too bright and has a little switchy thingy to turn it on and off. Case is sturdy. Didn't break after taking off the front plastic faceplate over and over trying to figure out how to mount a fan. (see below)

Cons: Trying to install a front fan is really hard. At first i had no idea how to get a 120mm fan on the front. Then i looked at the instructions and it seems that its missing the fan mount... don't know why it didn't come with the case but i figure it was just a mistake.

Overall Review: nuttin'

Lots of wires, but fun to use!

Bgears b-flexi80 80mm Red, Blue, Green LED Case Fan
Bgears b-flexi80 80mm Red, Blue, Green LED Case Fan

Pros: You can change the colors! YAY! Good airflow! Quiet! No buzzing, no grinding sounds, no problems.

Cons: There are sooo many stinkin connectors/wires it does take a bit of time to get em settled right so its not running into everything else.

Overall Review: To be able to change the colors is nice... i'm reworking all my fans so that i can install a plate that holds all of those little switches... And maybe get them to all change at a single flick of ONE switch rather than having to hit like 3 of them...

OC'd 2.6 on stock, Bought for 95 Bucks

AMD Phenom 9600 Agena 2.3GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 2MB L3 Cache Socket AM2+ 95W Quad-Core Processor
AMD Phenom 9600 Agena 2.3GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 2MB L3 Cache Socket AM2+ 95W Quad-Core Processor

Pros: Works beautifully with Vista 32 AND 64. OC'd on stock cooler to 2.6 without a problem whatsoever. Works like a charm... 119.00 original, but with a combo that I bought... take 25 bucks off that and you've got my 95 dollar AMD Quad Core.

Cons: Cache is obviously lower than Intel stuff... but seriously, is it really that noticeable?

Overall Review: The price/performance ration for this thing is pretty durn good. I have 2 rigs... one running the 6000+ 3.0GHz and this quad. Most activities have no problem on either of them. Bought this one so that when programs actually start using all the cores, it'll be very very naice.

Good Mobo

Foxconn A7GM-S AM2+/AM2 AMD 780G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Foxconn A7GM-S AM2+/AM2 AMD 780G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Works, OC'n works beautifully. Got my AMD Quad 2.3 Ghz to work at 2.6 with stock cooling and the mobo recognized everything. No glitches or anything at all.

Cons: Small, but hey its a Micro ATX... but be warned, most larger vid cards WILL block SATA ports...

Overall Review: Not sure, but from what I read it will only handle up to the 95w quads... the 125's will not work. I didn't want to test that out so I saved a couple bucks and bought a quad for under 100 bucks @ 95W AMD Phenom 9600 Agena 2.3GHz and it works with this board without a problem.
