Great for Popcorn but Forget Playing Movies

 

Bonus feature: it cooks a mean bag of popcorn!

As many pundits have noted, this baby is smokin' and highly overclockable. I have my clock set 10 mins fast!!!But

Let's talk about screen resolution. The problem is the screen on this unit is an actual screen, you know, like a patio screen. It has holes in it, so the resolution is horrible. Movies appear to be spinning blobs of color and light. It can make a 4...

Overclocked Mcirowav

 

A eSATA port might come in handy. Expandable butter slot might aid in syncing popcorn settings. The video display card on this is standard so for you hard core video additcts, you might want to upgrade it to RADEON 9000SVL to make it a dual back lit...

OK...so i read the reviews and I'm seeing 3.6GHz overclocking on this Microwave from the standard 2.45Ghz of non-ionizing radiation and it is like "say it aint so?", but my yes it is. So I went a different route to cool this bad boy..Why? because one...

The Bios on this unit doesn't allow a lot more overclocking of the chip from 2.45Ghz to over 3.6Ghz as discussed previously, but it still heats up a hot pocket faster then a sniper kill in Black OPs. More Bios options to really tweak this bad boy would...

Small but works well.

 

Compact but does the job. Use it to cook veges, fish and reheat food. Light only comes on when it's running; not when you open the door. Needed a small size for a small counter space. Replaced a Sharp we had for 15 years. Hope this one lasts as long.

Best Bang for you Buck

 

I was going to buy this Microwave based upon all of the reviews here since everyone seems to be getting 3.2Ghz no problem on AIR. Since the economy is struggling, and I need to save every last bit I can for gas money and keeping my home out of...

Not for oc'ers!!

 

Could use some VGA slots and compatibility with Linux. CD drive not included. Not recommended for a hardcore oc'er.

Does exactly what it is supposed to do

No PCI express slots, radiation

Consumer review by:

Do no watercool

 

I oc'd it to 3.6ghz with stock cooling, but it still took over a minute to nuke my delicious sodium packed noodles. I then tried submerging the microwave in mineral oil, but eating food soaked in repeatedly microwaved oil ending up giving me a...

Was great while it lasted

Label does not mention that it's not compatible with water cooling
