Pros: This is an excellent piece of hardware for the ASUS server motherboards. It plugs right into the PIKE slot and very easy to set up with the disc. It recognizes all of the SATA ports on my board and was user friendly. Highly recommended!
Overall Review: ASUS motherboards are excellent. It is always recommended to use hardware to manage RAID vs. Software
Pros: Excellent quality. Moves tremendous amount of air. Great price
Cons: Loud when on highest setting.
Pros: Excellent layout. All ports in rear. Very dependable. Plenty of onboard USB. Will handle a full size graphics card.
Pros: Very Fast. Loads windows 7 in 15 minutes. Faster that Intel 9550. Great price.
Pros: Excellent Board. Lots of Sata ports. Tremendous OC ability. Very reliable.
Cons: Only has 2 onboard USB ports. PCI Express slot is blocked if you use a 2 slot video card in the first PCI 2.0 slot. PCI express slot should be the first slot on top so you can put a sound card in there (like ASUS set up)
Pros: Very Fast. No problems installing. Drivers are easy. Ca play Crisis Warhead, FarCry 2 on 1900x1200 resolution with 2x aa and all other features maxed out. A crossfire setup will make this awesome.
Overall Review: If one can wait till the prices drop a little then a crossfire setup may be better than a 5850 card.
Pros: Excelelnt memory. NO problems. Very fast
Pros: This is an awesome case that is very sturdy and has an excellent design with the psu on top and hard drive space on the side. Will support a large graphics card if you remove the hard drive support on the floor. Bought two of these cases.
Cons: The dual hard drive support is a bit awkward right behind fron fan but you can use the side port to place the hdd and allow more airflow over the motherboard and out the back.
Overall Review: Modular psu almost a necessity since the space is tight.
Pros: Excellent speed! Runs cool. Handles all games and photoshop 230mb files instantly.
Overall Review: Significantly faster than q6600.
Pros: This is a very well built case. Sturdy design and strong components. Excellent layout with compartments and wiring. This was the easiest case to build a micro atx system in. Very good air flow.
Pros: Very Fast, runs cool, super fast boot times (40 secs from power on to desktop).
Overall Review: Would highly reccommend to put OS and other programs on one of these drives. Makes computing much faster and easier.
Pros: Excellent OS. Very fast using photoshop CS especially with more than 4 gb ram
Overall Review: Great with photoshop. I use 8 gb ram with excellent speed on addition of filters.
Pros: Fantastic operating system! Extremely fast processing times using Photoshop CS with 8gb ram.
Cons: Need to make sure alll software works with 64 bit.
Overall Review: Most Internet security/anti-virus software not compatible. Kaspersky is and I use it with excellent results....available on Newegg.com
Pros: Excellent motherboard. Easy to run thru and set bios. plenty of internal and external connections. Esata rear ports would be a welcome addition.
Overall Review: using Windows XP Pro 64 with 8 gb ram and photoshop CS. It handles all filters applied to a 230 mb image in about 20 seconds.
Pros: Excellent Hard Drive! Very dependable and very quick boot rates on Windows XP Pro. All drives should be this fast. The 10K rpm is very beneficial over the 7200k drives when using PhotoshopCS, especially for large files.
Overall Review: Waiting for larger hard drives at 10k rpm or even 15k rpm with Sata interface.
