no reason not to get these
Pros: im writing this review in the hopes that potential buyers can see past their doubts and come to the realization that this ram is HIGH QUALITY. Im running DDR2-1085, 4-4-4-10 on 2.5v on a dfi nf590 sli. it is possible, u just need voltage
Cons: red is not really the prettiest color, but i still like it.
Overall Review: corsair sucks compared to this ram. even their expensive C4 trails behind the firestix
Pros: Micron owns Crucial...get it? If you don't know what that means, you shouldn't be buying this ram anyways. If you take a look around youll see this ram is 5BG, comparable to BH5 or TCCD
Cons: My legs arent hairy enough.
Overall Review: Crucial never uses "bait and switch" like a well known company, Coxxxse Air. Go with Ballistix and be assured high bandwith in conjunction with low latencies.
Pros: dont read the idiot AJALBERT's review below. if you wanna look at it technically, like he is trying to, look at the htt frequency, multiplier. dont look at the l2 cache. that has nothing to do with real speed. this is an excellent chip, not quite on par with C2D, but it works well enough. fx-62 has an unlocked multi tho, might wanna go with that
I just dont know anymore
Pros: I just got this motherboard yesterday,and i have installed all necessary components for it to work, but it wont. The motherboard itself is fine but i cannot see an image on the screen. my ram, cpu, hsf, gpu and fans are all connected securely and properly. the debug LED just has two lines, - -, like that. all the fans power on, including my hard drive and gpu, and i know my monitor works, i just cant see anything. Someone please help me.
Cons: Foxconn C51XEM MOBOAMD X2 3800 AM2 WINDSOR STOCK(may be fried) 2 Gigs mixed DDR2 533 RAM (2X512 from PQI, and the other 2X512 from DELL e521) evga 7950GT KO enermax liberty 500w centurion 5 case zalman CNPS9500 nvidia
Results May Vary
Pros: -Emulates native motherboard PATA -Easy to install, just like any other PCI card -Relatively small in size -Included ribbon cables
Cons: -Maybe its just me, but the HDD LED pins on the card seem pretty random; however, you don't actually need to mess with them to get the card to work normally. -Uhh, the driver's CD is like a gamecube disc?
Overall Review: The card seems to be working perfectly as of now. Prior to installing drivers, my HDD would not show up. I installed the drivers, restarted, and poof, Drive G was visible. Tight stuff.
Helped change my dell!
Pros: Its completely stable, powerful, and built with quality in mind. The mirror finish is pretty sweet, even though u cant see it through a dell case haha. main ATX cables are good length, as are the ATX12V and other 4/8 pins. Fan is supremely quiet and cool. Upgrade compatible, as it fit in my Dell e521 w/o any adjusting or tweaking.
Cons: If i really tried to nail this card for something, it would of course be the modular cables. IT DOES clutter my case, but it doesnt limit air flow or raise temps like ppl like to cite. Since I have both SATA and PATA HDD's and optical drives, this isnt too bad for me.
Overall Review: Since I was on a tight budget to upgrade my dell, I had to search long and hard for a good PSU that came at a reasonable price. Aftter about two weeks I decided this was the PSU for me. MY specs are: X2 3800 Windsor + AM2 @2.0ghz, 2 GB DDR2 DUAL CHANNEL 533 Mhz, eVGA 7950GT, SATA Barracuda, SATA DVD-RW. THeres room for plenty more.
