Most Favorable Review

Good case, small pci

Pros: Small, sturdy, nice compartments for CD, HD, Floppy.

Cons: PCI requires low profile cards. The metal bar on the PCI cards & video card need to be half as big.

Overall Review: using to make a media center music box, only one low profile sound card out there, wish there were more.

Most Critical Review

Doesn't work right

CHAINTECH AV-710 7.1 Channels 24-bit 192KHz PCI Interface Sound Card
CHAINTECH AV-710 7.1 Channels 24-bit 192KHz PCI Interface Sound Card

Pros: Got 2 channel sound to work

Cons: Can't get 5.1 to work. Have optical SPDIF, but it won't output the sound in 5.1 only 2 channel. Have done quite a bit of digging and can't get it to work right, saw the same thing as a few others on have commented. Very disappointed :(

Overall Review: used the via drivers (even tried a few of the older ones too), which seem nice, but still didn't work right.

Fast....

Pros: Very quick, works, no problems at all

Cons: none

Overall Review: Was worried it would be too loud or hot, but haven't seen either to be a problem, does make some clicking noise but not overly loud

Decent enough

Pros: Good feel, clean, good looks

Cons: NO Insert key and now track control.

Overall Review: For the money a good deal.

Cool and quiet

Thermaltake CL-P0114 120mm Big Typhoon CPU Cooler
Thermaltake CL-P0114 120mm Big Typhoon CPU Cooler

Pros: Very cool, very quiet. Stock E6600 at 38C under load.

Cons: Big, make sure you have the room. If you have a poor case will probably make mobo temps rise

Overall Review: Good buy

Good PSU with mild setup problems

AeroCool ZERODBA S620 620 W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready Modular Power Supply

Pros: Very quiet, so far has enough power, great modular design, even has 3 pin setup too

Cons: wouldn't start with bad mobo, wasn't sure if it was mobo or PSU until other PSU had same problem, would be nice to have some sort of QC control

Overall Review: happy so far
