ARCTIC Alpine 64 GT Rev. 2 CPU Cooler - AMD, Supports Multiple Sockets, 80mm PWM Fan at 22dBA
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Of all the CPU coolers I've ever installed, this is the easiest. Just hook in one side of the mount, and press the other down until it clicks. Done. It's quiet and cool, well worth the price. I think this would be good for beginners just getting into building computers because it's so easy.

Cons: Probably not the best choice for overclocking. I overclocked the CPU a few hundred Mhz, but if you're going for a performance build, aim bigger. This is a relatively small cooler.

Other Thoughts: I'd surely choose this cooler over a stock cooler any day. For the price, the performance is pretty decent.

5 out of 5 eggs Best. Flash. Drive. Ever. 11/19/2013

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler 101 G2 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Red) Model DT101G2/8GBZ

Pros: Let me start off by saying that I've had this drive for 5 days shy of 3 years (purchased 11/24/10). I've had a few other drives, but this is still the best. I came back to the product page because it had gone missing and I was considering buying another one. I don't use it much for mass storage these days as I have two 32gb flash drives.

I mainly use this one these days for installing OS and running Live USB. One of my two 32gb drives is capable of booting/installing OS, and has slightly higher R/W speeds according to tests, but runs OS slow and unstable. This 8gb runs everything flawlessly. It may take a bit longer to boot, but runs about as stable as any internal drive at USB 2.0 speeds!

For those reading, this drive IS compatible with Windows 7 USB/DVD Tool.

Cons: None! They make 32gb, 64gb, and 128gb versions of this flash drive?! Umm...I'll be right back...let me just buy them all.

Other Thoughts: Now, I'm going to buy either a 32 or 64gb DT101, but still keep this one for installing/running OS. Who still uses DVD drives?

SAMSUNG EcoGreen F4 ST2000DL004 2TB 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5

5 out of 5 eggs 3 years and still going strong 07/30/2013

This review is from: SAMSUNG EcoGreen F4 ST2000DL004 2TB 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Probably the fastest HDD I've ever used. When kept healthy, it'll stay fast. It was on sale for $95 when I bought it back in 2010, before the flood in Taiwan caused prices of hard drives to skyrocket. I'm very fortunate for that. Because prices still aren't to what they were then.

Cons: Not SSD fast. But that's okay, I got a Mushkin 120gb SSD for OS and small programs.

Other Thoughts: All my games are on my 2tb hard drive though. Well, games, movies, rips of physical discs that I don't want to deal with, music,'ll hold everything...I've never filled it. You'd have to either be a person who has to have everything installed even if you don't plan on ever utilizing it, or a pirate for piracy sake...which seems like a waste to me.
