Heart Warming?

ASUS M2N32-WS Pro ATX Server Motherboard AM2 NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI DDR2 800

Pros: The box advertises, "Rock Solid, Heart Warming." I must admit if my heart could be warmed by a motherboard this one might be able to do it. You definitely get what you pay for in this motherboard.

Cons: none thus far.

Overall Review: I wish there were more extensive documentation of BIOS features. Though, this motherboard has enough settings it might need a small textbook.

With a little thermal grease...

COOLER MASTER RR-DCH-S9U1-GP 92mm CPU Cooler

Pros: This heat sink works great after using some thermal grease to bring CPU into safe operating temperatures.

Cons: none.

Overall Review: This heat sink is especially tall. Lines up well with standard ATX case fan. However, if you have a narrow(or short) case, this likely won't fit.

Works

G.SKILL 1GB DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Desktop Memory Model F2-6400CL3S-1GBGA

Pros: Memory does time as advertised if you set the voltage to 2.4V, lower voltages failed to even allow system to boot. Once I figured out the timing I observed around a 5% increased in system performance. Perhaps the edge someone is looking for.

Cons: I was hoping for more of a performance boost than I achieved, but it was a bit of an experiment to see how much RAM timings affected system performance.

Nice Case

Pros: Attractive case which looks at home with proprietary systems(Namely, starting with a D and ending with an L). Solid construction. Screw-less design simple and intuitive. Motherboard stands built into the case were a surprise, eventually welcomed.

Cons: none so far.

Overall Review: If you're looking for a professional looking case with a little bit of elegance this is it. I will likely buy this case again(or similar) for future projects.
