This review is from: Corsair Obsidian Series 550D Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: The look and feel of this case is amazing. Nothing feels cheap or flimsy. The magnetic dust grills make it super easy to clean. The panels open with the push of one button.
It's not as big or monstrous like other cases. Other cases look like burly monstrous obnoxious hideous thinks. This case is a sleek Armani suit look.
Cons: It could have helped if it was an inch taller. I installed an asus rampage 3 motherboard and i had to made modifications to the sata 2 cables because how the motherboard sinks in to the case. How ever the rampage 3 extreme was built with huge cases in mind and they made the board bigger. I don't think that credits a one egg loss. Air flow is as good as other cases but keep in mind that this case is trying to become silent which does an excellent job.
Other Thoughts: Airflow on this case with an H80 corsair cooler is somewhat of a problem. You might want to such air from the outside and push it in but i have not tried this because i don't want dust to get inside the case. How ever nothing about this case is bad. It goes for a silent solution and it excels on this.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H80 (CWCH80) High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
Pros: The only good that i can think about this is that it has a solid corsair build quality and is watered cooled.
Cons: The stock fans are really loud, i counter this by buying noctua fans. Noctua made a huge leap in noise level, how ever i had to buy these separately and now im stuck with stock fans that came with the cooler.
Other Thoughts: I gave this 3 eggs over all. It did not cool my cpu like i hoped for. I can try chaining the direction of the air flow from outside to inside the case but i don't want to get dust inside. I had the zalman air cooling solution before this that did a much better job. At this point i cannot even overclock the cpu because by temps on load are 55C. Maybe its because i have the corsair 550d case.
Anyway the only thing i get out of this purchase was a much quieter computer after i bought the noctua fans. There fore i can only give it 3 eggs. Maybe you will have a different experience if you have a different case with more airflow.
This review is from: Rosewill RSL-121 33' Solar Decorative String Lights, 100pcs White LED, Green Cable
Pros: It's solar! Super easy installation just place the panel on a solar surface and watch it go. Water proof. I was afraid they would get ruin with the last storm we had but they help up nicely. It comes with 3 aaa rechargeable batteries.
Cons: It's pricey, i bought em at a discount on black Friday and it was still expensive. My mom wanted some for herself so we went half on the next order.
Other Thoughts: Maybe some one can do the math and figure out how much will you save on the electric bill over the month of December.READ FULL REVIEW
