Seagate Hybrid Drive ST1000DX001 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: 8 GB memory, 1 TB of space and price. Replaced a normal mechanical drive with this hybrid. I must confess I was wondering if it was worth it. But it is as my boot time was significantly reduced., Prior it took a good 1 1/2 minutes to boot windows 7 Ultimate with all my sons cr*p auto starting. Now it is less than 30 seconds.

Cons: none so far.

Other Thoughts: If I was to buy another HD it would be a hybrid as the costs are the same as a mechanical HD. Quite satisfied with the performance of the hybrids.
My sons rig:
AMD 8350
sapphire R9 270
gigabyte 970 motherboard
8 gigs of 1600 ram.

COUGAR CF-V12H Vortex Hydro-Dynamic-Bearing (Fluid) 300,000 Hours 12CM Silent Cooling Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Quiet, PWM, 1500 RPM's, cable is long, quality fan. As a test Replaced Noctua nfs12 120MM fan with this one on the back of my HAF 922 as an exhaust. It dropped my temperature about 8C. It is very quiet and moves more air than the Noctua. And can't beat the price compared to the Noctua.

Cons: Rubber anti-vibration pins are too short. The Noctua came with about 1/1/2 inch pins which were easy to grab thru the holes on the fans. Noctua comes with better accessories , splitters, reduced voltage cables and longer pins.,

Other Thoughts: I bought Noctua and cougar fans as a test and after reading their respective reviews. In my personal opinion, someone who has been building PC's for close to 20 years. I chose Cougar for the price and performance. 1/2 the price of Noctua and moves more air too. I even bought the Cougar 140MM version for an intake. That one was quiet too. That is blowing on my R9 270 overclocked. (It runs BF4 in Ultra!)
