Pros: Nice color reproduction. Lot of inputs
Cons: Would have liked the it support fresync or g-sync.
Overall Review: I own 3 of these display now
Pros: Benchmarked Great for little while
Cons: After 8 hours of use the water pump failed. I would not buy this card again.c
Overall Review: I do not recommend this card to other people. You have to have 2 different login with to claim a warranty. It not exactly obvious how to file a warranty.
Cons: -keyboard completely stop working after couple of days
Pros: Nice sound and battery life 12 hrs
Cons: the clips that hold the headphones in broke. Now it is unsable
Pros: This router has faithfully server my network for what seem like ever. I bought this router in Nashville from circuit city as they were closing doors. For residential use it works well. I ran 10 real computers off this device and many vmware machines. I no longer use dhcp on it As I have domain controllers now. Wireless n works for it design have at least 3 or 4 wireless device on it. Never seems to have much issue. Beacuase were I live I turned down the wireless power. This router has been in service the longest of any routers. I put this router into service in 2008. Until I get more ac device I will continue to remain in service. I currently have none
Cons: Have issue with wireless with a b g ,n on at the same time. THe router likes to lock up. disable every then but g and n never had the issue agaon
Pros: cheap price
Cons: Board is dead after just 8 months
Pros: Cooling I5 2500k seems to do good job of cooling the cpu. Temps not overclocked on burn test were 95f room temp was 78f, With simile overclock back to back runs was 105f Simple install. I did not have mount the fan or anything.
Cons: Use a clip like the old days except use screw drive to lock it down. Why it lost 1 egg.
Pros: The move lot air. Have used then fan a number times. The old ones the lights are still bright
Pros: The ram got a 7.4 score on my asus n53s. The ram performed lot better then stock ram. It was same mhz rating,but the timing was better. After got the ram ran though intel burn test on maximum. No errors. I am taking this machine to 24 hr lan party. So I need to know that machine was stable.
Cons: I have no cons to list. Other then to say lower ram timing the better. Have sandy bridge.
Pros: Nice screen. Optumis technology works well in windows. No bottom air intake. Turbo mode on the i5 works well computer spends most of time at 2.6 ghz. Does get to 2.9 ghz. For what it is does ok with gaming. For being a 5400 rpm drive it does a good job still not a 7200 rpm.
Cons: Optumis does not work in linux with out modding. Ram only got 5.9 The wifi switch in windows works with software,also the volume control works the same. Worked fine in fedroa.
Overall Review: The laptop improved in speed when I bought 8gb gskill set. The windows score of the ram is now 7.4
Pros: It ram ran stable a stock speed no issue
Cons: Has little extra bandwidth in memory
Pros: I just bought this board for the third 1st with my 710 amd got nice overclock on it ht runs to 2250. what stopped the overclocker higher well I could adjust the current setting is was make machine runs quick and 100% stable. The second was to replace me father aging system wanted to reuse the ram, aslo a amd 710 the board also unlocked the 4th core and is stable. The last time was to replace machine that died on me so I wanted to reuse the ram. This board is a happy as the others
Cons: does not make me toast.
Overall Review: DDR 2 days are numbered, But got replacement for died mother board are cheap way to give you machine new life
Pros: I gave it five star because it meets factoy spec. Seems to work well.
Cons: none exaclty
Overall Review: Well I did not get high overclock out it was not cpu issue. I am having issues control the heat out the system out max load. Overclock was (3.1 ghz) This is let down after my amd 710 unlocked 4 core got overclock of 3.5 ghz. The issue is with motherboard for not higher overclock. Interesting the 4th core does unlock runs fine in fedroa at full load but windows 7 will not post with unlock. Since most of the time machine will be windows.
Pros: It easy to install and mount for intel and amd. I mounted to amd 715 . And overclocked has nice idle temps. Noise is about what expect
Cons: It seems to have issue keep it cool at full load not sure if it is case issue. Not I real high overclock. It has gotten little better after the thermal paste had time work in.
Overall Review: My zalman (amd710x4 3.5ghz) cool and rosewill(q6600 3.4) does a better job of cooling. Also my old Butterfly (amd620) with dust does better job. However all were more expanse then this cooler. The only system that has similar air flow is the intel box
Pros: It comes with adataptes to connect it either way.
Cons: Could blow more air but good for the price
Overall Review: It is little noise but what I would expect for the price
Pros: Nice power suppler. Wires are wapped nicely glows with black lighting. Computer at max load use more the rate power.
Never had issue with it still going strong
Cons: fan lighting burned out two years afo
Pros: I am running this on my amd 710 overclocked to 3.4 ghz at full load running prime 95 and left 4 dead 2 cpu temps held 134f with the 4 the core unlocked. My came with parts to connect a second fan on which only help that temp. Install was easy.
Cons: The screws are hold fan to mount are slight hidden by the heat sink so it can be tough mount. The fan mounts can be pain to mount. But once mounted stable.
Pros: Stable cpu Cool running at 83f on average Full load 91f. It handles it duty's htpc cpu with easy spend most of it life it would seem at 800mhz. has about 1000 hrs on it
Cons: Cpu can always be faster
Pros: The machine I bought for runs both windows 7 and fedroa 12. Aslo bought 710 cpu which enabled the 4th core and overclocked to 2.9 ghz with no added voltage. Has been very stable board. thinking about redoing old media center system off this board. As far onboard video goes it very strong do not use as put in nvidia 8600gt.
Cons: Cons linux ati drivers support I had big watermark saying unsupport ati card after using onboard video. Did this it both ubuntu 9.04 and fedroa 11. Why I took my old 8600gt out of retirement. Which after put new thermal paste on the coard has been running nicely
Pros: I was able to unlock the 4th core and then overclock it to 2.9 ghz. It has been running at the speed for about month or 432 hrs. Also did have to increase voltage to the cpu for the overclocked
Cons: Did overclock as far as my faithful q6600 which is still has performance crown in my house
Pros: Good sounding speakers for the price
Cons: would be nice if it had mic jack on the speakers to
Pros: Mouse is responsive feels nice in my hand even after hours of gaming
Cons: none that I can think of
Pros: Great Value. Bought chip onsale upgrade from 6600e.
System encode videos nicely upgrade. Overclocked chip to 3.19ghz
Cons: Chip is little now days. You buy more modern chips that ran faster out the box.
Pros: NIce cpu pefroms nicely. Has one me over which has something to since this is my intel cpu since 486 dx2
Overall Review: Better value with lower price
Pros: Execellent way to increase stoarge. Also has good transfer rate. Have had contiune since I bought it. No problems yet
Cons: Only has sata power only not really only prolbem if you have older power supply
