Pros: Performs much better than I expected. Moves a great a good bit of air through constricted space (good SP). These are very different from say the JetFlow (Cooler Master). The Jetflow gives you more total air but not focused air (this one appears to be more straight line for targeted cooling). Good build quality (as expected from a Corsair fan). Pretty quiet (with only 1600 max RPMs, this is a much quieter fan than other Corsair SP fans).
Cons: Depending on your taste in lighting your case, this does give good light sourcing but it is not the brightest Red LED fan I've seen. It works well with my case theme.
Other Thoughts: This is not a 4 pin PWM fan. The fans have 3 pins and fan speed can be adjusted if you have a fan controller (I have one and this also assists in reducing the light output). Will probably buy more to replace a few other fans in my rig.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Tt eSPORTS TALON Blu USB Gaming Mouse
Pros: Mouse has good weight without being too heavy. Feels good in my hand and I don't have large or overly small hands. DPI settings are good for all your needs (switching DPI when needed feels good while in game). Mouse is pretty responsive (solid performance). NO SOFTWARE/FIRMWARE ISSUES (Corsaire)!!!! Price$$$$
Cons: The DPI button clicks unintentionally during game play. I've used quite a few different mice and I can honestly say that this is the first one I've used that continually switches dpi while in game and now I've adjusted my gameplay to expect it (for FPS gaming, this is a critical issue as you can be in the middle of a firefight and then need to make a quick get away to only notice that your turn speed is now extremely slow... then you get gunned down). I would say that I'm fat fingering the mouse but I don't have large fingers. And again, this is the only mouse where I've experienced this but for $20 bucks, I can honestly say that everything else is pretty good so I've adjusted my game a little because of it.
Other Thoughts: This is not a final mouse for me. I'm still looking for my daily gamer but for the price, I will actually keep this one because the responsiveness is what I'm looking for (for the price, it doesn't make sense to get rid of it as I didn't invest much $ in it). I will transition this to my secondary gaming pc once I find a suitable replacement.
The DPI is frustrating during an intense online FPS game. That is the only reason I took away an egg. For a mouse that does not require software or firmware updates, this works great out of the box.
This review is from: NZXT Source 210 S210-001 Black SECC Steel, ABS Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Mid case that accommodates ATX/MicroATX mobo. Hard drive cage accommodates 8 HDDs (great if using for file server). All the features you truly need if you are building a gaming pc, file server (NAS) or simple workstation.
Cons: Not really a con but it has a window which I don't need. However, if you want to show off the inside of your pc, this will work for you. Not the sturdiest case but sturdy enough as it runs 24/7 NAS with no physical contact.
Other Thoughts: There is nothing flashy about this case. It gets the job done. Simple, clean lines, I needed a new case for the FreeNAS server that I was building. This item caught my eye at local shop because it had 8 internal HDD slots, additional area to mount an SSD at bottom of cage. This gives me plenty of room to grow my system and since it is low power with green and red WD HDDs, I didn't need anything with a large footprint or large amounts of ventilation (though the ventilation in this seems to work fairly well as it accommodates a number of fans which can keep temps pretty low if needed. Also note that if you use this as a gaming PC, this has a full cutout behind the mobo, that will allow you to do maintenance on your CPU without removing your mobo (removing or replacing cpu cooler is easy with this case).
I was mostly sold on the price as I got it on sale for $34 with an additional rebate so it only cost me $24. For this price, I'm actually surprised that I like this little case because I only truly cared about the amount of HDDs it accommodates.
