Pros: Got it on sale for $160. Cooling seems great, max temp was 76 C in a 85 F room. Idles at around 43C.
Cons: I think the GTX 460 now outclasses this card for only $20. It will increasingly becoming irrelevant.
Other Thoughts: If it was still priced at $160 it would probably still be a ok deal, but the profit margins are probably zilch at that price.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works, fast. On an old 500 GB western digital mybook I get about 60 MB/s.
Other Thoughts: Before you give up thinking that it does not work, make sure you have enabled AHCI on your motherboard. Also, windows will give you the blue screen of death if you did not install it with AHCI enabled. However, you can modify the registry if you did not install windows with it enabled.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-870A-UD3 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: It's a great board if you don't want to overclock or crossfire/SLI. The number of connections on the back port is amazing..... 2x eSATA 2x USB 3.0 along with all of the audio connections one could possibly want.
Cons: Gigabyte, why are none of your boards a standard form factor? This board says that it is ATX, but it is too short to reach the last 3 standoffs. It also has another hole next to the ram where there are no stand off holes in the case!
It also isn't FLEX ATX either, so I don't know how gigabyte comes up with it's system. I have another board from the 700 series that was the same way.
Other Thoughts: Docked an egg for the form factor issues.
