This review is from: Xerox Phaser 6500/DN Duplex Color Laser Printer
Pros: + Automatic duplexing
+ Expandable memory
Cons: - Color lasers are still expensive to buy and supply.
- Transparencies are not supported.
Other Thoughts: Overall, I'm very happy with the purchase. The printer has good quality output and speed and I've had no issues with drivers under Linux or Windows. As far as noise, its far from silent but reasonable for the job and speed at which it does it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H100 (CWCH100) Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
Pros: Works as it should and easy to install on LGA 2011. Lightweight compared to my prior mega-heavy air cooler. Uses one Molex 4-pin power connector and has a connector to provide speed information to the motherboard.
Cons: Based on reviews, may have quality control issues? Not the cheapest of coolers. Not dramatically better than the best of the high-end air coolers.
Other Thoughts: I'm using this with an LGA 2011 setup (3930 @ 3.9 daily, 4.5GHz when I need the speed). It keeps my temperatures under 65C @ 3.9GHz and under 75C @ 4.5GHz (over-voltaged) which is acceptable. Also, without the fans, this is very quiet; I've got it installed in an Antec 1200 case, cradled on velcro straps facing the top 200mm fan so I'm not using the included fans.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: X79 chipset. 8 memory slots. Intel gigabit LAN. UEFI BIOS. Solid capacitors. Low priced for an X79. Future expandability. Large memory capacity. MSI tech support was quick to help with a networking issue.
Cons: Moving to X79 wasn't inexpensive. Board layout would make anything beyond dual-SLI a tight fit.
Other Thoughts: I moved to X79 from X58. Windows and Linux both booted without issues and allowed me to install updated drivers (lots of system drivers for Windows, LAN driver for Linux). I had issues with the integrated Intel LAN on BIOS 1.0; BIOS 1.2 addressed the issue (a 1000mbps throughput problem). Running 3930 @ 3.9GHz (4.5GHz works too but requires elevated voltages), 28GB RAM. Very happy with system performance.READ FULL REVIEW
