Mushkin Enhanced Silverline 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model 996946
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: dual channel

Cons: very unstable, became practically unusable after a couple of months

Other Thoughts: I had used it less than 2 months, underclocked at 1333 since I have an H61
board. Then the crashes started. First Firefox, quite frequently, then
other apps, even the desktop env/window managers (kde,enlightenment...). A
few times I was unable to compile large programs, because gcc would
randomly stop with some strange internal errors. Long story short, i
replaced this memory with a honorable Corsair Vengeance module, and now
everything's good. I don't know what on earth possessed me to get this
brand the first time - I certainly don't recommend it.

ZOTAC GF9300-G-E LGA 775 NVIDIA GeForce 9300 HDMI Mini ITX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: stable, good overclocking features, good graphics.
It supports E6500 (2.93) just fine out of the box, even if it's not listed in cpu support on their website.

Cons: couldn't disable SpeedStepping from BIOS, although it can easily be done from OS, see below

Other Thoughts: I've been running it with openSUSE 11.2 for a few weeks, very stable so far.
I'm overclocking just a little bit (2.93->3.1), which is very easy with an fsb increase.
I wasn't able to disable speed stepping in BIOS, but you can accomplish this directly in linux with:
echo performance >/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor
echo performance >/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/cpufreq/scaling_governor

ASUS P5N7A-VM LGA 775 NVIDIA GeForce 9300/nForce 730i HDMI Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Very stable board, i have it in a PC that's almost never turned-off, and i haven't had any problems at all. Tried both Linux and some games under windoze, same great performance. Integrated graphics chip is pretty good, it easily handles compositing window managers, such as Compiz under SUSE. Hybrid sli seems to work well (i've got another PCIe graphics card).

Cons: Sound stopped working for some reason after a few weeks. I don't think it was very good to begin with. Fortunately i had an old pci SoundBlaster lying around.
