No problems here @ 1066 epp2

Pros: I had 2gb of it with no problems so I bought 2 more gigs. Never had any issues. I run it in EPP 2 (un-ganged). So it's @ 2.2v and 1066mhz. Works great.

Cons: NONE

Overall Review: no comment

My best case

Cooler Master RC-690-KKN1-GP Black SECC/ ABS ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Excellent durability, layout and airflow. Amoungst the bet cases I've ever owned. Can't be beat for the price range especially.

Cons: none

Overall Review: The top two fans (120mm or 140mm) must be low profile or top cover won't fit back on. Top fan on side panel will sit over cpu heatsink, so about 145ish mm clearance before fan becomes an obstacle. For largest heatsinks ( such as CM-V8 etc.) you'll be better off leaving it without a fan there.

1 of 2 worked great

Seagate BarraCuda 7200.12 ST3500410AS 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Working drive is quick and quiet. My array will now have to wait til i get a new drive, but the one working alone is nice.

Cons: 1 out of 2 I ordered was DOA.

Overall Review: A lot of people are worried about the firmware issues that plagued 7200.11 drives, but it doesn't seem it to be an issue.
