Pros: cheap fast overclocks to 2.52 stock volts runs cool.
Overall Review: installed xp pro fast,loads and is on start menu in just 10 seconds from time i hit start button.
Pros: nice board seems well built x48 crossfire
Cons: my aftermarket heatsink hit on board cooling fins,it is a zerotherm BTF92 oc edition,but my copper cooling fins on my heatsink bent up enough to fit,not a good design on board cooling.
Overall Review: oc 3.6 easy with e8400.
Pros: overclocks great most 2.7 to 2.8
Cons: 9x multiplier gives some mobo fits over 300 fsb=2.7 i think would go higher with a 10x.oh well buy a 170 then.
Overall Review: are these still lcb9e ?or if different what are they,and had any luck overclocking them?thanks
Pros: loud sound good
Cons: none,other than my wife hearing games through the house now.
Overall Review: makes my games and music sound great.
Pros: price went down
Cons: none not 10x maybe sounds like that might not be such a big hit after all.
Overall Review: i have two in sli overclocked to 668/823 and scored 9309 on 3dmark06 with amd opteron 170 overclocked to 2.8 mhz
Pros: cheap price lite weight for its size easy to install
Cons: does not cool as well as my stock opteron heatpipe cooler made by foxconn.idles 29c/with cooler master and idles 26c/with stock amd heatpipe.both max out the same at 100%load @ 43c/109f
Overall Review: just buy a 165 opteron stock cooler from eXXX for 10-15 dollars new,and have better cooler that takes up a whole lot less space.
Pros: overclocked to 2520 stable will run at 2.6 but needs to be really cold to do so.scored 1982 cpu score in 3dmark06,thats better than alot of 4800 x2's and even alot fx-60's
Cons: only 9x multiplier buy the opty170 if your mobo doesnt have alot of fsb settings.could oly get 285 fsb stable on benchmarks any higher it would crash.
Overall Review: this thing stomps my 4000 sandy,in almost all test even running the 4000 at 2.9
Pros: i overclocked to 2.95 stable 295 x
10.it only run 100f max load with opteron 165 heatpipe cooler.80f normal.
Cons: doesn't benchmark even close to my opteron 165 but cant tell it is that much slower doing normal tasks.
Overall Review: for the price cant go wrong.it is the LCB9E stepping same as my opteron 165,to bad the dual core cant clock with this.could get close if it had 10 multi instead of 9.this has 12x but i set it at 10x.
Cons: cheap case came with a 350 ps.mobo had issues with 1 and 2 com ports
Overall Review: sent back see if next one works.
Pros: its wide not to bad of picture
Cons: dead pixel
Overall Review: my nec moniter waas better just cost more too.
Pros: overclocks to 2520 on stock air,scored 950 on 3dmark06 cpu score.
Cons: none at this price.
Overall Review: 939 upgrade from sempron.
Pros: on air it will go 290 fsb maybe a little more,not 300 at least not stable.scores 1969-2011 0n 3dmark06.
Cons: only goes up to 9x multipiler.
Overall Review: not to bad unless your hoping for old opteron speeds of 3.0 from ccbbe steppings not from this lcb9e stepping.2.6 is easy to reach though thats fx-60 speed.
Pros: THIS THING KEEPS CPU COOOOL.CAME WITH THREE FANS ADDED ONE IN FRONT SUCKING AIR IN NOW MY OPTY RUNS IN THE 70f RANGE.
Cons: SIDE WINDOW DOESN'T GIVE A VERY GOOD VIEW INSIDE CASE.
Overall Review: HARD TO FIND FAULTS WITH THIS CASE BEST ONE I EVER HAD ESPECIALLY AT THIS PRICE.ITS AS GOOD AS 150 CASES.
Pros: OVERCLOCKED TO 2.7 BUT WOULD CRASH IN 3DMARK06.GOT SCORE AT 2628 MHZ.SCORED 2011 CPU SCORE.1812 AT 2.4.I GOT THE LCB9E STEPPING.OH WELL CANT BITXX 155.00 DOLLARS FOR SAME SCORE AS X2-5200 ON BENCHMARK.
Cons: ONLY GOES UP TO 9X MULTIPILIER.HAVE TO GET FSB UP TO 290 TO HIT 2.6.HAD TO SET MEMORY ON DDR266 AT 194 MHZ- DDR333PUT MEMORY GOES UP TO 240 THATS DDR480!MY KINGSTON HYPER X DONT LIKE THAT.
Overall Review: RUNS COOL 22C/71F RIGHT NOW WITH STOCK HEATPIPE COOLER AND IN A SUNBEAM SILENT STORM CASE.GETS UP TO 80F DOING CPU BURN IN BUT THATS ONLY RUNNING CPU AT 50%
Pros: why not just oc the 5200 and save 230.xx
Overall Review: why?

Cons: not 512 memory runs warm.
Overall Review: not bad card runs games smoothly thinking of buying one more to go sli
Pros: IT OVERCLOCKS TO 2.97 ON AIR OPTERON165 heatsink and fan and runs 32c overclocked.it was staying at 78f running at stock 2.4.running over fx57 speeds.same chip.can change multipliers with epox 9npa3-sli board.
Cons: not dual core?who cares for price it rocks.
Overall Review: get it and speed up your old rig upgrade from 3000 venice core running 2.53 and this kicks its xss.
Pros: works great,279fps on fear,my old 6800xt only got 198 fps max.this kicks there axx
Cons: only 256mb,needs bigger heatsink to cover memory.
Overall Review: paid xxx but the rebate ended now.
Pros: was cheap 199,stopped rebate,one one per household anyway.runs greta faster than my two 6800xt in sli.got 203fps max with two xfx6800xt's on fear.this thing did 263 stock,and 279 oc to 600/800,which is were it went when i hit optimal settings on nvidia oc menu.
Cons: only 256 not the 512.smaller heatsink and fan but mine runs 51c.at idle.needs vf900 cooler to run best.
Overall Review: not bad will get some 3dmark06 scores and post'em later.
Pros: this is a super nice case.sturdy,big ,clean,nice layout,lots of fans that are very quiet.
Cons: middle fan vertical support bar blocks some view of inside.
Overall Review: this is by far the bast case i have owned.price vs quality is great deal.buy it!!!!
Pros: have running in sli for over a year without a hitch.nice cable covers,plenty of hook ups,nice fan.
Cons: if you install with 120 fan down,writing on back upside down?
Overall Review: work good for me.

Cons: had to mess with to get to run fast.
Overall Review: good price works good
