Pros: Great cooler. I run them on both of my 8800GT's. Quiet compared to the stock HSF. Sticky tape on ramsinks is useless. Get Arctic Silver adhesive for them.
Cons: Big, makes your PCIE card take up 2 slots.
Overall Review: Coolermaster Cosmos/PCnC 750w/ Q6600@2.8g,Zallman 9700/P5N32-E SLI/8GB Corsair/2x Asus 8800GT 512mb SLI- Zallman CU900's/WD Raptor 150gbx2/Vista Ultimare X64
Pros: Good deal for the money.
Cons: I bought 2x for 8GB and one pair was DOA. Won't even post with the 2nd pair. RMA in process.

Pros: FAST, 4-cores, VIIV, 64bit
Pros: Super fast. I'm running 2 in SLI at 675/1000. Crysis64 DX10@Super High with 8x AA is as smooth as butter.
Cons: Stock HSF is LOUD. I took it off both and put a Zallman CU900 on both with Arctic Silver5 and Artic Silver Epoxy on the ramsinks.

Pros: More features than you can shake a stick at. Great overclocking options. Very stable thus far.
Cons: Kinda picky about RAM, if you run SLI with Zallman VGA CU900 coolers, both PCI slots below the PCIE slots are unusable.
Overall Review: Don't think about it, BUY IT!

Pros: I've been using Raptors as my OS/Boot disk for a couple of years now. Always super fast.
Cons: Kinda pricey, but you get what you pay for.
Overall Review: OS booting is very noticeably faster.
Pros: Used to be great. I burned over 1000+ DVD Video disks with Ridata/Ritek and had no issues until now. Stuttering and lockups half-way through watching. They have went downhill.
Cons: Read the above.
Overall Review: Verbatim has my business from now on.
Pros: Cheap storage
Cons: VERY slow. 12MByte/sec is all it could handle on a dedicated GigE switch with jumbo frames enabled.
Link aggregation did not work. Linksys tech support didn't even know what this product was.
Overall Review: Thoughts? Glad I could send both units and the 750gb HDD's back for a full refund where I purchased them.
Pros: Huge, cheap, and quiet.
Cons: Not super fast, but ok for storage.
Overall Review: FYI: WD also replaces bad HDD's with refurb units.
Comments: Running at 260mhz now = 1040mhz!!!!!!!!
VERY stable. This is at STOCK voltage. I think it can go WAY higher seeing as how it hits 260mhz with the stock voltage. Just needs watercooling on my 2.8 Prescott to get there.
Comments: 10759 in 3dMark3K....... Speaks for itself.... BLAZING fast card. And just as fast from NewEgg....
Comments: FAST ram and FAST delivery from NewEgg.....
Comments: Can't beat NewEgg. This HDD is an awesome buy for the $$$ and from NewEgg, you'll have it fast.
Comments: PLENTY of power. Voltages are right at SPEC. PLENTY of connectors for anything you want to hook up.
Comments: This is by far the BEST case I have ever had the pleasure to build a PC in. Bar none. For xxx from NewEgg, you can't beat it. Pair it with that Anter 550W PSU, and you have a great foundation to build your dream PC on. Take it from me, I have been building these things for years.
Comments: Takes breathtaking pictures. Awesome quality. WELL WORTH the money. I am glad I forked out the cash for it. Trust me, I am not one to spend large amounts on items like this, but it was well worth it.

Gainward TI4200 128MB
Running at 2880MHZ!!!!! 160FSB!!!! Very stable! Over 1000MHZ Overclock!
Comments: Has everything you could ever want in a board. Only this is, if you put a lone HDD on IDE1, I had to put it on CS to make it work, master wouldn't.
Comments: This case is very roomy, and the front door is easy to use, not flimsy at all. Has a 80mm cooling fan slot for the HDD's built in. Get the YS Tech 49CMF. This is THE nicest case I have used.
Comments: Great card, but too much software you don't need. Just load the drivers and leave off the rest of the junk. Get the Logitech Z560 THX speakers for this card and it'll rock the house!

Comments: Compared to the Klipsch Pro Media's, these totally blow them away. Look at it this way:
Awesome Sound = $500
Awesome Sound = $140.
They can't be beaten. You will NOT regret. I recommend an Audigy or SB Live for these.
