Most Favorable Review

stable board

ASUS A8N5X 939 NVIDIA nForce4 ATX AMD Motherboard
ASUS A8N5X 939 NVIDIA nForce4 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: This is a good, stable board. It is not lacking in features for the price range it is in. It does what it was designed to do and does it very well. I would like to reply to a review about the front panel connector. The jumpers on the board's front panel connector are for cases with no front panel audio jacks. When you remove the jumpers and connect a front panel audio cable you DO get sound from the front and the back. It's a good nForce 4 board for a cheap price. Highly reccomend it.

Cons: Cheesy chipset fan, although it is sufficient.

Most Critical Review
MASSCOOL 9F533B1M3CG 80mm Ball CPU Cooler
MASSCOOL 9F533B1M3CG 80mm Ball CPU Cooler

Pros: With the fan spinning at 2800 rpm, it is quiet. Easy to install. Good price.

Cons: Rough base. Rub a small dab of thermal paste on the base until it disappears. This will help. Idle temp 32c, 54c after 30 minutes 100% cpu utilization. Good case ventilation 75f room temp.

Phenom Proc

Pros: I do not own one, but I read a review on Tom's Hardware that it will run a Phenom proc when flashed with the recently released BIOS,

Cons: ?

great case

KINGWIN SK-523BK-BC Black Aluminum front bezel, SECC chassis ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
KINGWIN SK-523BK-BC Black Aluminum front bezel, SECC chassis ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: PRICE. Two included 120 mm fans. Great locking mechanisms for the optical drives. Easy to build in. Sturdy aluminum door with magnet. Good locking mechanisms for expansion cards. Great airflow. Side mounted hard drive cage with ventilation holes cooled by the front fan. Great side panel fit with thumbscrews.

Cons: Audio cable is way to short, made it work, but it was a hassle.

Overall Review: Would recomend to anyone. You are getting more case than what you are paying for.
