works and looks good
Pros: seems to work ok, feels cool to the touch.
Overall Review: as i have read from the other reviews a few people complain about the fit being a little loose, well i guess they have not dealt with a cooler that was glued on, thats when you wish it was a little loose. it makes it easy to (even them up) after install,so far they work on muskin 800MHz running @1072MHz
got a bad one
Pros: none so far,will update after rma
Cons: installed as soon as i got it (customer build) windows would not install,got a error report,run test with white canyon software,at 4.37% already had 5 disk errors,when i went to rma on the egg this is what message i recieved-(Unfortunately, our records indicate that the manufacturer's labor warranty for this product has expired. Please contact the product manufacturer for additional service options.) i thought at first that i just got this thing, what is this,but it still gave me a rma number anyway.
Overall Review: i will update asap,but thinking about a different brand next time,this is not my first bad WD drive.
will order somewhere else now
Cons: the egg
Overall Review: my last order with the egg was made on the 6th in the early am, with rush paid extra,then i get notice that i will receive it on the 12th and it shows the order date on the 7th,i quit buying cases here because of the way they were shipped in in a thin box with little protection (over half were damanged) 2 of 3 last hd's were bad and now i placed a order on the 6th,early am and paid rush, i will get the order on the 12th,new egg,that was my last order,i'll shop at global now.
low IQ reviews
Pros: best am2 board out to date.
Cons: reading reviews of low IQ people.
Overall Review: if you dont know how to use the bios on a motherboard and you blame the motherboard and then you go public with a bad review,you need to ask mama to use her DELL. I have built 6 of these boards todate and not the first problem. Yes the bios is NOT for wannaB builders, but dont blame the board if you are NOT smart enough to build a REAL BOX. and as for the 8 second reboot issue thats the EZ PLUG, just remove it and plug wires direct to MB.
WHATS DIFFERENT ?
Pros: Works great, customer very happy with build, therfore i am happy.
Cons: none yet but will update.
Overall Review: don't understand hype over this chip and the 5000BE, same chip, i have built both and they are the same even in the bios, even clocks the same, only difference i see is color of box and NO FAN. But i dont try to superclock a seller system, just bump it up a little to show its sheet.
1.5 YEAR UPDATE
Pros: I have really been hard on this board and its still going strong. After having it in 4 builds & memory changes it still rocks, Im just waiting for the crosshair II to come out to go quad. this board will run a quad but not @ 100%,just read up at asus forums
Overall Review: A LITTLE PROBLEM WITH A BIOS FLASH A FEW MONTHS AGO BUT ASUS WAS THERE AND A NEW BIOS FLASH TO 0804 AND THIS DOG BITES HARDER THAN EVER. IF YOU HAVE A DUAL CORE DONT FLASH THE BIOS WITH ANYTHING HIGHER THAN THIS UNLESS YOU PLAN TO GO TO A QUAD CORE. 6400x2@3471MHz-8GB MUSKIN6400@992MHz-CROSSHAIR-2-1 TB HDs-750 PSU-7950GT KO SC VID-ON WATER
