Most Favorable Review

works and looks good

Scythe SCKW-1000CU "KAMA WING Cu " Copper Memory Heatsink
Scythe SCKW-1000CU "KAMA WING Cu " Copper Memory Heatsink

Pros: seems to work ok, feels cool to the touch.

Cons: none

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

Western Digital Blue WD2500AAJS 250GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

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

Pros: none

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 ?

AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000 - Athlon 64 X2 Brisbane Dual-Core 2.6 GHz Socket AM2 65W Processor - ADO5000DOBOX

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

Cons: none

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
