Pros: Newegg service and price
Quality through and through
Sturdy and Awesome Styling
Cons: Duh! I guess the reset button is microscopic but it works so......?
Other Thoughts: Excellent value. Tried a Bitfenix Colossus mini-ITX case for my first mini-ITX build. I might have to do a post review on it. Beautiful styling but quality of parts lacking after only a year. This case by Corsair is extraordinary in every way and made my build much easier than the Bit Fenix. The appointments are well laid out and it was a pleasure putting the machine together. Going to try the value-priced Cooler Master Elite 130 next but, for a little more cash, I still appreciate and enjoy the looks and quality of this case.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Noctua NH-L9i 95mm SSO2 CPU Cooler
Pros: Noctua quality; reasonable price, mostly favorable reviews at all web sites
Cons: This cooler won't bring my CPU to ambient temperature but, after a few days for the thermal paste to melt in, it remains in low 30s 9Celsius, of course)
Other Thoughts: Most Intel CPUs run hot, especially the latest ones due to the narrow thickness and continuing defiance of companies to conform to Moore's Law. I only have a 4790 on an 1150 motherboard in a Mini-ITX case but I wanted it that way. I usually build a PC every 2 or 3 years so why spend a pile of money just to be the leader of the pack for a few months? The machine is plenty fast enough for me, running an SSD on WIndows 10 with a Nvidia960 and 16 GB RAM. I don't overclock much either so what's the point in getting liquid cooling? I'm too old to have a sugar mama to give me a hefty allowance for my passions. Even after a heavy load of multi-tasking, the temps drop down to the low 30s fast enough for me. I chose wisely so the cooler and all the other parts didn't break the bank either.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Like new, for a refurbished item. The refurbished: Canon LBP6030W was quick to find my wireless network. I only had trouble printing at first because I forgot to remove one of the last orange packing seals on the printer's toner cartridge. It was my bad. My eyes are failing me as I age more. Support was very courteous and alerted me to the problem. They actually were from America and that's a big PLUS. This model Canon has been around a while so I knew it was reliable. Canon makes good printers and scanners. They also employ Americans, it seems.
Cons: Still waiting to find out. My wife doesn't use it every day even though she can print from her iPad.
Other Thoughts: Give up if you expect to find anything manufactured in America. Dumb congressmen wonder why the government can't collect taxes to keep the country's infrastructure in shape. When a corporation goes to an offshore bank account and hires Chinese workers to manufacture their products who's to blame? The middle class who used to have those jobs? Yet, American consumers pay for their products as if they were still manufactured here. Shame on them. The "trickle down theory" was an elaborate dream concocted by conservatives paid by greedy businessmen. The only problem was you had to be asleep to believe it! Shame on the government and the corporations who think anyone is that dumb that they don't notice what's going on! The nation's economy is improving? My BIG foot!READ FULL REVIEW
