Pros: It worked for one day

Cons: It was promising when I got it. Charged it in the Arizona summer sun and it worked great that night. Next day, stopped working. Cost me around 19 dols for one day of functioning. Too expensive to replace/return shipping costs alone prohibitive. If rosewill would ship me another I would take another chance and rereview, but shipping defective unit to them, packaging, time, etc. probably not going to happen. Too bad, worked for one day.

Overall Review: Overexpected results and unreliable

The absolute best rock solid blazing fast processor4/1/2011 1:21:58 PM

Pros: have this overclocked to 4.8 ghz, completely stable, on MSI p67 mb and ripjaw ddr3, with 2 tb drive, all from newegg. Blazing fast rock solid and inexpensive to boot. all components above combined are cheaper than extreme 1156 processor by itself, and outperforms it by far. PCPitstop benchmark of my system shows this processor in top 0% worldwide out of millions of processors tested.

Cons: None! You will have no regrets.

Overall Review: Have been building systems for over 20 years and this is buy far best bang for the buck. Extremely happy!

3 out of 5 worked4/1/2011 1:15:14 PM

Pros: received a package of 5. The 3 that worked worked well. cost total was 4 bucks, so 1.33 each shipping included. Handy and bright.

Cons: two out of five didn't work. was able to make 1 of the 3 viable ones come to life by leaving in the sun all day.

Overall Review: hit and miss; the ones that work are great. Rosewill roulette, but really, even if only 3 work it is still a decent buy.

Overclocker's Dream4/1/2011 1:06:31 PM

Pros: I have purchased two of these motherboards and they are outstanding. 2500k overclocked to 4.8 Ghz, Ripjaw ddr3, with a GTX 260 runs every game and app at max settings like glass. Both booted up first time. Bios incredibly user friendly, all settings customizable. Best motherboard yet.

Cons: Not free.

Overall Review: If you use the overclocking genie button, it limits you to 4.2 ghz. Disable overclocking genie button, change ratio to 4.6 and leave everything on auto, and will run all day with standard settings. Was able to tweak voltages and get it to run stable for several hours with intense gameplay at 4.8 ghz. Using sealed water block for cooling, runs at 28-33 degrees C.

Whisper Quiet Fast and Big 5 Eggs4/1/2011 12:59:37 PM

Pros: I have purchased two of these drives and they are great. One is used in an external usb case attached to a buffalo nas and one is used as my primary hd in a 2500k system. Recognized instantly both by the nas and win 7 ultimate 64 bit, the drives show about 1.8 tb formatted and are completely silent. 6gbs on MSI p67gd mb. The internal drive shows a 5.9 on windows experience rating, lowest rating on my system, but is still plenty fast. 2500k overclocked to 4.8 Ghz, Ripjaw ddr3, with a GTX 260 runs every game and app at max settings like glass. Very happy with performance/price/size bang for the buck. Love it!

Cons: Of course I would love it to be faster rpm and larger cache, but that is only because I want to max everything out. It works perfectly fine and fast, and spending more money on a faster drive might save me milliseconds. My comp resumes from hibernate to desktop in 2 seconds so I really can't complain.

Overall Review: Newegg shipping free and arrived early. Overall 5 eggs!
