Cons: 775/1155 mounting hardware not pre-installed. :(
Overall Review: 4.5 GHZ i2500K @1.4V 70c ambient 42c at idle 72c MAX prime 95
Great price/Performace point!
Cons: when my watt-o meter plugged trough to the computer only, when the wall reads over 607W it fails. causing a loss of power hence a hard reset after a few moments.
607W it fails meaning it is probably a 550W with a different sticker.
650W is supposed to be Vdc output wattage and at 54A on the 12V line I would have expexted more. 54 x 12V = 648W?????? only two watts left for the +5,+3.3,-12,+5USB??
607W it fails
DO NOT BUY
I cannot overclock my videocards in sli any more with out going over this overrated psu's limit.
607W it fails at the wall, you should be cable to pull at least 700W with out problem, due to compensation for heat dissipation and efficiency on the DC side of things
Overall Review: too much money for what this is... i feel ripped off.
Pros: -Runs COOL 68C @max with fans at 100% ~53-57db
-Oerclocked SLI 930/2050 @1.37v
-31-32k 3dmark vantage ALL games WILL run maxed out (not metro 2033 with 4XAA i had to leave it at AAA setting)
-Crysis 2 with tesslation, Ultra Setting texture Pack, 1.9 update MAXXED OUT! 60+FPS all day long!
-when system is at idle the Fan noise is low 30db or less
Cons: ~53-57db MAX fan speed These are the loudest things in my system
-A single card was not enough for my 28" Hanns-g 1920x1200
Overall Review: -when system is at idle the total wattage is 150W
-when system is at load the total wattage is 550W-580W
-3dmark2011 drew the most load at 596W just for a bit (my 650W 52A single rail psu is just enough, if i overvolt anymore, overclock my cards anymore. 607W wall rading the system hard resets :()
i2500k asus sli mobo 4.5Ghz @1.4V
8GB of ram
110gb OCZ Raid-0 pci-e 4X SSD 500MB read 600MB Write 7.9 windows index with 1TB 6gbs seagate drive for storage
Pros: -Runs COOL 68C @max with fans at 100% ~53-57db
-gets 15,358 3dmark vantage firstname.lastname@example.org @1.15v
-plays everything i through at it on high settings.
-Newegg Delivers FAST!
Cons: -~53-57db These are the loudest things in my system
-will not run metro 2033 on ultra settings smoothy, cure sli...*
Overall Review: I have this directly hooked up to my 42" 1080P 60hz Dynex (best buy brand) ALL games will run smooth with a little in-game settings tweaking.
Pros: This little bugger is at 3.2 52c MAX load @1.3V orthos, prime, GTA4, you name it. Blazing fast compared to the PIII 750mhz it replaced.
I would recommend the newer wolfdale with 1MB of cache.
Cons: older technology. intel is going to put an on-chip memory controller on all new 32nm cpu's. (this only took intel 10 years, LOL AMD has done it for a long time)
Overall Review: Paired with 4GB of ram and onboard video on a budget board, a zalman 9700 cools this spud quite well.
My uncle was very Enthusiastic about his new found speed!!!!
Pros: Good air flow with the rear exhaust case fan blowing in, to create positive pressure inside the case so video card and power supply stay very cool. Furthermore dust will not enter your case from every open crevasse. only where the fans are!!!!!!!!!!! then you could filter your case easily :)
Cons: not the best design in the world for the hard drives, but the antec 900 is pretty much the same way.
Overall Review: overall good case and my customer was happier than a pig in shoooot!!!!!
C2Q8400 @ 3.4(proc would not go 3.6 no matter the voltage)
8gb ddr1066 @ cas 4-4-4-12
2X1TB raid 0 caviar black
Pros: no drivers needed!!! works as advertised
Overall Review: I don't have a 3.5 inch bay to put it in soooooo. i made one.
Pros: they work
Cons: had to force them in, because the pins on the gtx260 have a different shape than the adapter has.
Overall Review: forced them in... I'm not shy.... for GTX260 SLI email@example.com ddr3 2000 and a 750w sli cert PSU , EVGA 790i_FTW
Pros: THX 2.1
Other people say where's the mids... i say there's the mids!!!
Beautiful full range of rich, full, and clear sound.
cannot turn volume to half, just under half and all the dishes and loose items shake and create horrible rattling.
however this is compensated by turning up the volume to 3/4 volume which frankly sounds like someone is in your living room shooting a gun in a first person shooter!!!(and yes, i own several firearms)
however it remains crystal clear!
Cons: cannot turn volume to half, just under half and all the dishes and loose items shake and create horrible rattling.
however this is compensated by turning up the volume to 3/4 volume which frankly sounds like someone is in your living room shooting a gun in a first person shooter!!!
living with girlfriend's mother who is unemployed so i can never turn it up!!!
UPS put a hole all the way trough the outside box and the inside box and gouged the Styrofoam deeply, thankfully everything was OK, since ups just left it at my door
Overall Review: SB-live 24bit
Pros: ran nice and quiet at first
overclocked the ram to 1250, no prob
runs cooler than my gts512
shader would not overclock at all
games run GREAT!!!!!!!! the max fps might not be EXTREME but the min fps is like 29 fps in crysis high everything 1080p 8x antialiasing WHAT WHAT!!!
Cons: not DOA, but even with the fan at 89% 56c on the core (not too hot for max load) it artifacts or complete freezes at stock clocks. I'm having this one replaced and that will be here in 2 WEEKS!!!! yay i get to wait two weeks!!!
On my GTS512 the dvi to hdmi cable i have works perfect on my somewhat cheap 1080p 42" lcd 8ms. as soon as the GTX260 was put in i had HORRIBLE OVER SCAN out the wazoo. I tried to resize hdtv desktop and it lowered my resolution :( i ended up using the vga adapter and the picture was blurry.
shader would not overclock at all
very loud at89% duty cycle
wait 2 weeks for a replacement
Overall Review: q6600 3.8ghz
GTS512 or this one
750w sli cert
I hope the replacement is the overclockers dream!!!!
Pros: runs as advertised. have not tried overclocking.
Overall Review: good solid memory for an old computers last hope.
Pros: plays most the blu-rays and all the hd-dvd's you can through at it. YES i updated the player and no it said no disc before and after, i tried to play meet dave the different blu-rays and nothing .... no disc
Cons: YES i updated the player and no it said no disc before and after, i tried to play 'meet dave' on three different blu-ray discs and nothing .... no disc inserted. and windows explorer could not see anything as well
Overall Review: good if you want to save on hd-dvd movies.
Pros: perfect centering when looking at the raw data through controller properties. Battery has not been changed after 1year of play, on my other controller (same) most programs are automatically configured to controller.
Cons: Feels weird if you are used to playstation2 controller. The mode button is under the "select" button and i press it while playing grid causing the camera to move instead of steering and i crash.
Overall Review: all and all a great controller!!!!!
Pros: SMALL,GOOD SIGNAL STRENGTH,
Cons: Bit of a pain to install the device just wanting to istall the driver manually as so windows could configure the wireless network settings instead of a third party program.
Overall Review: I get 270MBS connection 12 FEET away , Given that is it is through only one floor, it shouldn't make that big of a difference that close, should it. Very HAPPY i went from a B network to N now i'm happy with my home pc.
Pros: Excellent speed transferring all files. right now i'm transferring 57GB of Nintendo ds Roms to it and it took 10 min !!!!!! not 43 min like on my 250 gb sata. BIG DRIVE, QUIET, FASSST,
Cons: no sata cable included...... Bought new motherboard and it has plenty extra cables so.........my cpu case only has room for 6 HDD and I'm Using them all!!!
Overall Review: I have 3xraptor 74gb Raid 0 207GB C: drive and it is FAST!!!! i just think about opening a window and POW BOOM there it is. firstname.lastname@example.org 4gb-ddr2-1066 1.7TB total HDD space, 8800gts 512, 24bit SB live, antec 900, ep45-ud3r,LG Blu-Ray/ HD DVD/dvd/cd/BURN ONLY DVD + CD, 42" 1080p lcd, 2.1 thx certified logitec.
Pros: Very overclocker freindly! I put my Q6600 that i thaught would only go(p35 dfi-t2r) 3.6Ghz with 1.6v and this(p45) goes 3.75Ghz at 1.5v Verry pleased with purchase. overclocked the memory i thaught was unclockable!!!!!!!!
I also got one stick of axeram to post 1380 5-5-5-10 @2.08v
Cons: on board audio doesn't have 64MB X-Ram Like my audiocard does.
Overall Review: 417x9=3752Mhz ((I DID NOT HAVE TO FIDDLE WITH ANY THING MORE THAN VCORE)CHIPSET FINE AT AUTO)

Pros: makes all the differance in the world going from a B to an N network!! LOL now i download at 1.5mb\s as before i was limmited 450kb\s
Overall Review: put it where you cant see it (diddn't have to open utorrent ports) it just worked WELL.
Pros: Does what it says it will! Cheap! 4GB! (My DFI p35-t2r was giving me problems for 5 months) and fried one of my other Dimms witch caused me to buy this. so now i have a GA-EP45-UD3R. Well worth the $$$ in the new board!!
Also, going from a faster 1200mhz cas5 2 GIGS to 1100mhz cas 5 4GIGS The 4 gigs is for the games that i play, I can experience MUCH smoother gameplay with all settings PUMPED UP!!!
Cons: Does Not make coffee, or do my laundry

evga8800gts512 800/1900/1000 stock voltage (no-mods)
Pros: CHEAP!!!! overclocked to 3.37ghz on 1.5v plays crysis 2 frames slower than my email@example.com
Cons: Race driver Grid gets hit hard at night time where my q6600 had no effect (multi-tread friendly apps will suffer) frames go from 36fps day to 20fps night but that is only the lamans race. 1920x1080 level 2 multisample
Overall Review: sub 80 dollar processor cant go wrong. i also have axe ram 1200 and a 8800gts 512
Pros: Does what i want it to do with no lag. ps2 gt4 at 1080i looks very nice too
Cons: had to rma once it just stopped working
Pros: EXCELLENT COOLING OVER STOCK... but not the best. Some manufactures are coming out with direct touch heat pipe technology, where the heat pipes are directly touching the cpu reducing temps 5c more than the Scythe infinity!!
Cons: wasn't free
Overall Review: kept my X2-3800 at 55c at full load with 1.65Vcore @ 2.85 Ghz!!!
Pros: Booted at 800Mhz so i could up the voltage and as soon as i put it in epp mode BAM 1200Mhz no prob bob.1400mhz @ 2.4v @ 5-5-5-15 on a DFI LP UT P35 T2R with a Q6600 SLACR L740B Core 2 Quad running 3.87Ghz!!! I'll smoke you fool. 15,021 in 3dmark2006 WOOT WOOT. ram stays warm to the touch, you could put your lips on it without discomfort. i just want to kiss it. ALL PRIME, ORTHOS, AND SUPER PI STABLE!!!!!!!!!!!
Cons: Beats most ddr3 on the market. thats the con. for ddr3 anyway
Overall Review: xxx on 01-09-2008 F_YEAH!!!!! 8800gts G92 @ 820/1950/2250
Pros: Moved the on board jumpers to 1333 on a Q6600 that i did not get from newegg. and BAM post @ 3ghz. then i went into the bios and cranked up voltages and fsb. so far all i have to say is WOW, i wanted to get the most out of my Transcend aXeRam 2GB DDR2 1200 from newegg and i did 1400mhz 5-5-5-10 @ 2.3v processor is flying at 3.87ghz and thanks to my scythe infinity it doesn't tough 60c at MAX load!!!!
Overall Review: Q6600 SLACR L740B, Transcend aXeRam 2GB DDR2 1200, this mobo, 2 x 74gb raptors raid 0 for os, 750W 4 rail psu, and a evga 8800gts 512 @ 820/1950/2250 stock cooling no volt mod yet :)
Pros: droped temps from 43c to 28c!!!!!
fits like a champ, DFI Ultra-D
Cons: mounting was.... the spring retainers were difficult
Overall Review: worth the work!!!!
Pros: first thing i did was monted a MASSCOOL 7WD01L3 on the chipset, found on newegg. sinked the ram and away i went, runs cool 38c ati tool and 31c idle. oc'd to 621 core and nothing on the ram, but for $xxx+free shipping Best cost/performance hands down.
Cons: Supreeme commander only gets 19fps at 1980x1440 max everything with about 400+ units all whirling around
the only games i was unable to max out were splinter cell Chaos theory-playable at 1280x1024 40fps min max everything, and rainbow six vagas same res. as game above 25fps min
DOUNGEON SEIGE?? yeah?! are you serious??!!!
Overall Review: extreemly powerfull card i would buy another and crossfire it up, but i have a sli motherboard
