decent cooler

ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 64 Pro 92mm Ceramic CPU Cooler
ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 64 Pro 92mm Ceramic CPU Cooler

Pros: cools very nice if modded the fan included is not able to push enuf air through the tight fins on this sink. mainly due to the open shroud design i would imagine. simply adding a 90mm fan pulling air out the opposite side made a dramatic diff in load temp. went from pushin near 60c load to 48c not bad.

Cons: bad fan design does not push air through the tight fins very well. easy fix though. also the finish on the base is rather ghastly not smooth at all will be pulling it off and lapping it very soon. alot of grooves on it looks like they drug it across some 60grit paper lol

Overall Review: i like it even though it is not as quality a product as it should be. with a few minor modifications the full potential of this sink should be well worth the budget price

awesome cards

Pros: dx 10.1 pcie 2.0 price/performance can't be beat

Cons: only flaw in these cards is the fps hit from aa but at 1600x1200 i don't notice it

Overall Review: got 2 of these in xfire in a 790fx mobo with a phenom 9500 crysis in xp @1600x1200 max settings is no problem

awesome board

GIGABYTE GA-MA790FX-DS5 AM2+/AM2 AMD 790FX ATX Ultra Durable II AMD Motherboard

Pros: am2+, 790fx chipset, crossfire

Cons: bios does not set memory voltage correctly on ddr 1066 you have to make sure of yur mems voltage and adjust it in the bios or you will have an unstable system even at stock speed. also some mem timings are not being set correctly some of which are not accessible in the bios waiting on f3 bios

Overall Review: great stable board as long as you tweak the bios. oc's well although due to memory timing problems going past 240 fsb cause the bios to start freezing hoping for a fix in f3 bios (you hear that gigabyte)

Comments: what a difference this case made temp wise over my old powmax hotbox.went from 47c idle 53c load to 34c idle 38c load. case temp is 24c was 34c in old case. lots of room and the wires tuck away real nice behind the hd. gonna pick up a fortron power supply cause the voltage rails on the included one are not very stable,i want to oc but alas i have to wait again. sixth order from newwegg nary a problem yet.

Comments: upgraded to this from a7n8x rev 1 and i couldn't be more happy. got an albatron fx5900 epv and put it on the old mobo and was not happy, fps was no better than my ti4200. put it on this board what a diff, grfx are way smoother with more vibrant color and higher fps. 3dmark03 was 4729 now 5909. aquamark was 34979 now 45687. fps in planetside went up about 25-30%. all in all a worthwhile invesment. as always newegg rules came 2 day's ahead of schedule.
