Pros: Seemed to do well. Pretty fan set up.
Cons: Died after a little over a years worth of use. Went back to the stock fan that came with the 2.4 Quad core. and noticed that there wasn't much of a difference in the aspect of cooling.
Pros: Needed to re-post, I have aquired info from ASUS. After exhausting methods of fixing probs. Got an ASUS tech on the phone, He let me know that the probs I was having, Are because it is a defective card. So I need to spend 20-25 bucks to send i back so thay can try to fix it. If they can't they said that they would replace the card.
Cons: Beware of the rebates. Hence make sure that there are NO probs with card before you cut the UPC off the box and send it in. If you remove the UPC you loose the 1 Yr. Replacement warenty, Because Newegg will not accept the card back without the UPC. Sorry OUT of luck. I have a prob with this as I spent $500.00 for a brand new card, Now I have to send it to ASUS and let them try to fix the brand NEW card that never worked correctly out of the box.
Overall Review: I feel that because of the rebate/replacement warrenty issues, Newegg should try to make some kind of agreement, since the rebate w/upc went to ASUS.
Pros: Fast card.
Cons: Clock speed shows at 507 instead of the 750 claimed. AI Catalyst DOES NOT work. Causes the card and PC to crash if Catalyst is on. Have Tech tickets outstanding, Card cosistantly resets it's self to the Clock speed of 507. Have Black spots during game play with BF2. Down loaded ATI Catalyst 9.2, It does not fix the Catalyst issues or the spots. Does give fan control.
Overall Review: Hope they come out with better software soon!
Pros: Lots of settings and buttons.
Cons: The "software" for this mouse leaves a lot to be desired. If your a BF2 player, and like to be the gunner in a chopper, you'll have probs with TV guided missles. The missles require constant re-tracking, this mouse cannot keep up! I Have changed the settings 6 ways this side of sunday. Looked for software updates. It's Just is not all that.
There are at least 15 people I know who have allready switched the Razor Deathadder mouse. All have commented on the fact that their shots with the Missles have improved by at least 30 to 40 percent, with the razor.
Overall Review: If they could fix the software issues, It would be a good mouse.
Pros: Different discharge for air vs The V1 I had it for almost 1 3/4 yrs. and it died when I turned it on. Moved a lot of air, discharged at the vid cards.
Cons: Died in about 1 3/4 yrs.
Overall Review: Replacement fans.
Pros: Great Fan, have had it for close to 2 years. Kept things cool.
Cons: It's dead now. Turned it on the other day and the blade wobbled so bad it was hitting the fins.
Pros: Bought first set September last year $109.00 for 2gig. Been running it overclocked @ 1333 on ASUS P5K Premiun Black Pearl Edition mobo. Flawless!!! Had To purchace 2gig more when I saw the $54.99 with $30.00 mail in rebate. Been running it OCed @ 1333 w/NO probs. Flawless!!
Cons: First set had a rebate, sent it in and they denied it, said it wasn't in on time. This set claims a $30.00 rebate, with post mark dared by 6/01/08. Droped it in the mail on 5/26/08. They better honor it! Only real complaint short of the rebate issue, Is that they changed the heat spreaders, I like the old ones better, Better look.
