Second Unit Good!
Pros: This was a FREE replacement from Rosewill. No charge for S/H either. Completely reversed my opinion of this unit. Fast, tight USB connection, etc.
Cons: Original unit had to be replace, maybe a bad batch? Hopefully nobody else gets the bad ones, if you do -- contact Rosewill, they will help out!
Great quality, quiet, and stable PSU.
Pros: Installed dozens of EarthWatts Green PSUs in workstations and low-end servers over the years and, knock on wood, I haven't had a single issue with any of them. The professional workstations I build are not power drains, therefore obscenely large PSUs aren't necessary and these EarthWatts work wonderfully. Being fairly efficient they generate less heat than some competitors, which can be nice when a tower is sitting under a desk adjacent to my clients. Operation is almost silent. I am so thankful for the rise in popularity of quiet PC components and the EarthWatt PSUs help in keeping an office quiet and cool.
Cons: None thus far.
Good Basic SOHO Video Card
Pros: I have installed several of these over the last 5 months in professional office workstations and they have served my clients well. These cards are not gaming cards, so don't expect them to be. They run Win7 aero just fine and run my clients software without issue. Several clients run 2 of these in their workstation for 3 to 4 monitor setups and they run great.
Cons: No complaints thus far.
4 Installed and Working Well
Pros: I have built 4 workstations over the past 5 months for professional clients running these boards and have been quite satisfied. I do not overclock, only require stable boards with solid, stock performance and these deliver. If you rely on the BIOS to automatically set your RAM parameters, check them against your RAMs specs to make sure they match (I had 2 P67s that were incorrectly setting the timing and voltage causing BSODs in Win7 Pro - no problem once I manually set the values). Overall very pleased with these boards thus far; I will repost if I encounter any future issues.
Cons: Automatic RAM settings in BIOS aren't always correct- double check them and adjust as necessary for your unique setup.
Great RAM Kit
Pros: Have installed 10 sets over last the 5 months with great results. Be sure to verify the timings/voltages/speed in your BIOS match the capabilities of the RAM and, even better, e-mail G.SKILL and ask for the proper settings for your specific motherboard and CPU setup as certain combinations are more stable at higher/lower timings and voltages. Their customer service is quick and very helpful. I am not an overlocker and nor do I want to be. I require stability and solid, stock performance and these kits deliver.
Cons: Had several BSOD's in Win7 Pro with a couple of sets, but the problem was the BIOS incorrectly set timings and voltages for the RAM. G.SKILL was very quick to reply to e-mail and their recommended settings have been solid and stable.
