Pros: Worked fine for about 5 months. Modular cables keep the case clean. Nice looking black finish and mesh design. Quiet. Lead free.
Cons: Cables are stiff. Plugs are a little hard to use. Began making a clicking sound then overheated about a month later. RMAd so we'll see about the new one.
Overall Review: Worked great hopefully new one doesnt fail. Im a little nervous adding a second 4870 using this PSU however. It has the power but will it hold up.
Pros: Great for mid level gaming computers or just high quality all around computers. Lots of cooling, has two 120mm front optional fan mounts and 120mm side mount. Easy to work on and has good space. Simple, easy to use front panel. Lots of room for hiding cables.
Cons: The only thing I dont like is the headphone jack allows the wire to interfere with the CD drive. But routing the wire over top of the case solves this.
Overall Review: A great budget case that does everything well.
Pros: Plugged it in and changed the frequency. Great improvement on my old computer.
Overall Review: Good deal.
Pros: 1066, 4GB, fits with no problems in my case. fast.
Overall Review: Set it to 1066 in Bios and it was good to go. cool heatsink design
Pros: Fast, fairly quiet.
Cons: None really.
Overall Review: For one of WD's best drives, 1 TB, Black series the price is great.
Pros: Very fast, does the job. Good for older AGP platforms
Cons: The stock fan on this thing is terrible. Mine glitched like crazy. Replaced with a Zalman cooler and it works fine now.
Overall Review: Make sure you cool this thing down or you might have problems. The stock fan is a joke. and very loud.
Pros: Does what its supposed to. Very quick read time. Replaced a cheap store brand and this is lightyears better.
Overall Review: Great upgrade/replacement.
Pros: This cooler is prorbaby the best one you can get for VGA. Drop my temps down to 48 C at idle and 56 C under load. Stopped my ATI Radeon X1650 pro 512 from glitching due to overheating. Excellent quality. Mirror like finish on copper base. excellent mounting. Just a really good product.
Cons: Large. BE carful when you install it. follow the instructions!
Overall Review: Make sure to use Arctic Silver instead of the supplied thermal paste. When installing the RAM sinks, stick them on both sides of the RAM, then squeeze together with your fingers. Then DONT TOUCH THEM. Let them sit for at least 24 hours then they will be stuck for good.
Pros: Very smooth. Definetly happy I went with the 512 card. I can play all my games on max everything now.
Cons: Pretty large and fairly loud. Not a big deal because it more than makes up for it in performance. The included software wouldn't install for me, had to download driver.
Overall Review: This is a great card for AGP platform. Right now I have 1.8GB ram, 3.0ghz CPU and with this card my computer is finally where I want it.
