  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Recognized instantly at advertised specs by my MSI 790FX-GD70 mobo. Excellent cas timings, frequency, and voltage for a great price! Totally stable thus far with absolutely no hiccups. Ram heatsinks are solid and aesthetically impressive! Not DOA!!!!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I highly recommend this ram next to GSkill and Corsair!

Cyber Acoustics AC-740 3.5mm Connector Single Ear Earclip Headset & Boom Mic
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Newegg + fedex = amazing, got it 2 days early! though, now I wish I hadn't...

Cons: EVERYTHING! Horrible design, Cyber Acoustics trie to make it look appealing by aesthetics but don't be fooled, this thing is garbage.
1- Doesn't fit to your ear AT ALL!I spent a good 20 minutes trying to get it to stay in my ear, but it was the most stubborn piece of trash i have ever seen, didnt like my left ear or my right!
2- Audio quality is horrendous! You can hardly hear anything without blaring the volume and the quality is poor. If you are planning to use this headset despite my review, please for your own sake, just use the mic, the audio component is easily the worst headphone speaker I have EVER laid my ears upon.
3- The mic is also pure trash. Despite not being able to properly attach this headset to my ear, I decided to test out the mic component anyway. The sound pickup level on this thing is practically non-existent. The only time it actually received my vocals was when the mic was right up against my mouth, and even then the sound level was too low to be heard.

Other Thoughts: Please for your own sake, do not waste your money on this garbage. I thought my last logitech $30 headset was bad, and thought it was, this is a new low...

AMD Athlon 64 4000+ Single-Core 2.6 GHz Socket AM2 62W ADA4000DHBOX Processor

5 out of 5 eggs Simply...BEAUTIFUL 10/12/2007

This review is from: AMD Athlon 64 4000+ Single-Core 2.6 GHz Socket AM2 62W ADA4000DHBOX Processor

Pros: Blazingly fast...easily the fastest single core on the market, unless you can find a classic single core fx like the 55 or 57(see other thoughts). At stock 2.6ghz it ran at 25c idle up to 30c gaming with stock cooler. I now have it overclocked to 3.0ghz, runs at 28c idle up to 35c max when gaming still with stock cooler <-- Try to beat that with your Intel garbage! AMD always has and always will be on top of Intel. Their technological engineering is far superior to Intels and its astounding that so many people dont even realize it. I've been an AMD/ATI fan from the start and let me tell you, its never gonna change. THIS THING PWNS!!!

Cons: None really, but if you must --> 512kb l2 cache- Would've preferred 1mb but considering I'm really only gaming(ie:single-tasking) its not as important as the operating frequency which is clocked at 2.6ghz(Orleans core) vs the 1st gen 4000+ at 2.4ghz(San Diego core) Besides if I needed a higher l2 cache for multi-tasking, I would've gone dual core.

Other Thoughts: 1st gen 4000+ (San Diego core @ 2.4ghz, 1mb l2) was actually the fx53. After the release of the single core fx series(53, 55, 57) AMD changed the name of the fx53 to the 4000+ and dropped its price tag for better sales, as most ppl who could afford an fx processor wanted the best so they went with either the 55 or 57. This particular 4000+ is I believe a 2nd or 3rd gen with the Orleans core @ 2.6ghz, 512kb l2. Newegg still sells the 1st-gen 4000+ oem, but its socket939 and if u want to look towards safeguarding the future id suggest an am2 socket. Plus the am2 socket cpu has newer architecture and runs cooler.

On another note...The only time I'd EVER recommend Intel is if you want your pc to explode, yeah Intel runs their cpu's from 50c to 70c average...thats up to 158f just to let u know.
