Pros: Value (Newegg Shell Shocker), simplicity, stability

Cons: Non-modular....that's about it (Color is kind of strange...but whatever)

Pair it with a couple of 1066mhz DDR3 and you're off to the races! Another thing which simply shocked me is how cool this thing runs. It idles at THREE DEGREES higher than my ambient. I was...
