Pros: Worked for two weeks....
Cons: The drive offered great performance for two weeks with Vista 64 bit, but suddenly went "missing" in the BIOS. It would show up after a couple reboots but size reported 8GB, sounds like the firmware is hosed. I have another HD501LJ still cruising after 6 months though... Makes me worry about that one also.....
Other Thoughts: This will be the last Samsung drive that I will purchase. Every 5th review here states a failure. 20% DOA rate is a bit much.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS P5N32-E SLI LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: First board was DOA. Two weeks turnaround for a replacement. Fired right up this time! Plenty of features on this board. Q6600 G0, 2GB corsair dominator 8500, 8800GT.
Cons: I would avoid 680i, wait until 780i arrives. Way to many DOA boards. Look at all the reviews half of the people report DOA boards, this is extemely high. Only getting 2 eggs because this one wasn't DOA, it really sucks having $1500 worth of parts sitting around waiting 2 weeks on a RMA....
Other Thoughts: Not sure if it is just a Vista 64 issue or the Mobo, but the OS installation freezes at times with a floppy drive installed (Didn't need 1 anyway). You actually have to disable the floppy in the BIOS to avoid issues. Once unplugged it installs in 20 minutes.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This heatsink/fan is huge! With fan speed set at half RPM my Q6600 G0 stays at 59 F at room temp! My, max temp at full load is around 71 F. These numbers are almost hard to believe but true! FSB is also overclocked 10%. Fits just fine in Asus P5N32-E 680i, tt Shark Case. This is just a smart design, the fan is blowing directly into 120mm case exhaust fan, why didn't they do this 5 years ago? Thermaltake is the best when it comes to cooling!
Cons: I little hard to "snap" securely on the MOBO. The fan speed adjustment cable could be a bit longer.
Other Thoughts: I have been a tt fan ever since I bought my old Thermaltake Dragon ORB 3 in '01....READ FULL REVIEW
