4 out of 5 eggs Not Buying Standard HDDs Anymore 06/30/2014

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drive ST2000DX001 2TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

Pros: -Great boot up times
-Prioritizes mostly used applications (including OS boot!)
-Fast read/write
-Cheaper than SSD

Cons: -None

Other Thoughts: I initially went with this because purchasing a SSD for boot/games and a HDD for everything else seemed unnecessary. Since my usage of this, I am sure I will never go back to a standard HDD. This product is great and cache's the applications you use the most in order to load them up significantly faster. It would be nice to see this tech advance in using a larger flash size. Until SSDs come down in price, this is definitely the choice to go with.

CORSAIR Hydro Series H55 Quiet Edition Water / Liquid CPU Cooler 120mm
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Easy alternative to full watercooling kits
-No need to refill or drain
-Solid factory seals
-Fan included

Cons: -None

Other Thoughts: I didn't have the space in my case for a full water cooling kit and decided to go closed-loop. I felt this was a great decision. I did not test the fan that was included because I used my own, however it is nice that one was included. It was quick to install, although I removed 1 star only because the newer versions have magnetic attachments that make it even easier to install.

Cooler Master JetFlo 120 - POM Bearing 120mm Blue LED High Performance Silent Fan for Computer Cases, CPU Coolers, and Radiators
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -LEDs are not too bright but still emit very well (some may prefer brighter LEDs but I find that distracting).
-Come with adapters to run at lower speeds if a controller is not preset.
-Only loud when ran at it's highest RPM.
-95 CFM
-Rubber frame minimizes vibration

Cons: -Very loud when ran at it's highest RPM

Other Thoughts: I currently have 5 of these in my case and I definitely recommend them.
