Pros: Stays very cool even with stock fan. You can turn off the turbo and OC this to 4.2ghz stable with stock fan at 1.4v using ddr3 1600 rams(8gb, wei 7.9). I preferred using the turbo and was able to OC at 3.8ghz/4.2/4.5 turbo. I am using the Asus M5A97 which has the evo auto tuning. But we all know manual tuning is better =)
Cons: Single thread benchmarks arent as good as the i5 even after OC'ing. However, this processor is very fast and stays within 15-33c with stock heat sink.
Overall Review: Try out the stock fan before you buy an upgrade. Generally I would only replace the stock fan if you received a noisy fan or if the temperature is not well suited. I am happy with 3.8ghz and 4.5 turbo :)
Pros: Very simple case to build a budget pricing. Has USB 3.0 for front panel. Well ventilated and the redness of the LED along with the front panel matches =)
Cons: Front panel will only work with Intel boards. I bought this case for an AMD system... Then when my system was fully installed, I was hearing a whinny noise. Founded out that the side panel fan was the cause.
Overall Review: so I was dissappointed of the front panel being for intel mb only, however, my FX 6100 was able to OC to 3.8/4.2/4.5 Turbo with out hitting higher temps from dissabling the noisy side fan. Overall, I would recommend the case if you can use the front panel and have a spare 120mm that dont sound like a jet engine :)
Pros: It works and can be great when you need to charge up and not in a car or at home or away from laptop...
Cons: Cheap looking and the card thing is useless. Nothing much to say but it just a simple thick battery attachment.
Overall Review: if this was on a special 25 or under...get it! if not, you can find similar items now for less than 35....
Pros: Less of a headache from my dying G built in adapter. Extra signal strength and no drops.
Cons: I bought two of these adapters in 10 days from each other and now its has dropped 5 bucks =) it shows I can get more for less!
Overall Review: Rosewill has the better wireless product and accessories for both laptop and desktop in the past 2 years. Keep it up
Pros: Wide ranges of compatibilities from Mac to PC. 8gb for less than 70
Cons: 48hr saled price was a tad lower than when I just got it. Oh well, that 3 bucks is better spent on enjoying my 11.6" at full strength.
Overall Review: Would buy it again for sure. Loved G.Skill from destop DDR2 800 days.
Pros: Works with XP and Vista. It is a great tool for most system if you deal with multimedia memory cards.
Cons: Hardly any silver case out there...Save us the money and just one face plate is okay.
Overall Review: Great to have and if it comes with extra USBs or eSata then it will rock even more!
Pros: Laptop gives you enough ram and hd to begin your modification if you want XP and other systems to be place on it. Light weight and nice blue color.
Cons: Does feel flimpsy but it is a budget system after all.
Overall Review: Would buy again at the right price! Great for students and mothers. Travelling and lugging this thing is a breeze.
Pros: Good for any dual core system and some overclocking! As long as your system dont have 2 graphics card or anything that demans 2 6pins.
Cons: Price could be a little lower. But you are paying for the quality.
Overall Review: It is a very good replacement power supply and great for starter systems. Hopefully, it will last beyond the warranty. I trust the brand =)
Pros: Holds plenty of pictures for digital photo frame or enough for a few hundred pics from a 5mp to 10mp.
Cons: Dont plan on using this for videos...you will only get less than an hour.
Overall Review: Great for mom's and dad's quick gifts along with their digital cameras or photo frames.
Pros: Its free!!! Looks durable and enough room for school works, important software, and some pics.
Cons: Plain looking bordering ugly.
Overall Review: I would probably go with other brands because they have better designs and faster speed.
Pros: Size of memory is enough for pictures, songs, and videos. Reliable and most phones will recognize.
Cons: Could be faster...
Overall Review: If you dont load over 2000 songs, this will be perfect for you!!!
Pros: This case has everything you need for a complete system. It has enough power for one GTX card and two hard drives. Silent fan when low to medium.
Cons: Pricing on this case varies greatly from sixty nine to over one hundred. No side vents, top fan, and LED temperature gauge.
Overall Review: Very solid case for a sleek look and will buy again.
Pros: Starts up fast, txt to speech, and loud speakers. Works great for my neighborhood, pricing was awesome, and it looks almost brand new!
Cons: only 1.3mil in POI, 3.5" screen only, and no automatic updates.
Overall Review: Definitely a great buy. Highly recommend and great for new drivers.
Pros: Stable at 3.6 on air and comes with a decent stockfan. LOL not but it works.
Cons: AMD tricore might be better for the performance. Encoding is not as fast as I like it to be. I have the 6mb cache version and still seems like AMD is a better bargain. (28mins for 1h 40min of encoding) from AVI to DVD format.
Overall Review: If you have a good motherboard, you can benefit greatly from wolfendale's processors. But if you have a cheap board, better off getting AMD.
Pros: Screen is better than my first 701 model. Large drive space for multi systems. Feels sturdier....Newegg was able to price match my order and gave the lower price (-30).
Cons: Keyboard is still kinda tightly spaced, webcam is 0.3mp, and not as light as I wanted.
Overall Review: There are two models and this was the lighter of the two and gives out about 3-4.5 hours for battery life. Great for school or netbrowsing. My next netbook will probably be dual core and touch screen ;-)
Pros: Auto detects fine, can overclock nicely, and high quality for its price. Can reach slightly over 1000mhz
Cons: Finally DDR2 is on its way out but this is still one of the most versatile ram on the market.
Overall Review: Best buy for budget to mid tier builders and great for overclocking!
Pros: Works as well as the quad core heatsink, so a little better than stock fan.
Cons: Could be cheaper, does require bracket, and doesn't cool as well as other copper heatsink.
Overall Review: If this product had free shipping and under 24.99, then it's a steal.
Pros: No extra power needed. 512mb more than sufficient for viewing movies and DVD encoding.
Cons: Not great for intense gaming but more than enough for WoW.
Overall Review: Chose ATI for their desktop color and movie watching. System was for my mom and she doesn't game.
Pros: Cheap and works well. Rechargeable.
Cons: Yellow color gets dirty fast.
Overall Review: Would buy from again but rather have no rebates and less in price. You can get this at other retailer for 19.99.
Pros: 16X, cheap DVD+, and reliable.
Cons: Blue surface and dull...sucks up ink.
Overall Review: If it is under 24 after shipping, then it's a deal.
Pros: 32mb cache, quiet, and cheapest 750gb at the time.
Cons: no combos with the drive.
Overall Review: Would definitely buy again.
Pros: Works very smoothly for what I need it for. Beats looking for my external reader.
Cons: DHL shipping is soooooo slow!!!!! But atleast shipping was free!
Overall Review: Would definitely by more for Win XP 64bit computers. I will test out vista 64 bit a few days.
Pros: Love the design and screen looks great. Daytime pictures are gorgeous and night time needs some adjustments.
Cons: 2 tone color is not the thing for everyone. Should be all silver or whatever. At night you have to manually switch to a lower ISO. Dont use "auto" at night too grainy because iso is at 800/400.
Overall Review: Price of this unit is great. Used to be 150's. It beats the casio's and comes close to cannon. Kodak's have flash issues makes close up pics too bright.
Pros: Has all the connections and power I need. Good for most basic SLI configs and no overclocking.
Cons: For 2 Nvidia 8800gts, and if you want to overclock(E8400)...it wont happen. Maybe because I have 8gb ram, 2 hard drives, and 2 optical drives.
Overall Review: Overall, its a great powersupply for Mid tier systems and it is not noisy. 750w would be best if you want a more playful environment.
Pros: Enough memory for a long vacation trip. Bag fits Fuji Z100 perfectly along with extra memory cards.
Cons: com'n now its free....
Overall Review: Just make sure you dont loose the camera bag while on your Vacations!!! Enjoy
