This review is from: Thermaltake CLP0600 92mm Contact 21 CPU Cooler
Pros: Temperature reduced quite a bit (33%) over my stock heatsink/fan.
Cons: The installation of this unit is ridiculous. I've built over a dozen PCs, rebuilt car engines, built decks, fences, etc. I know how to work a screwdriver! It took almost 3 hours to install this thing. A few tips:
1. Run the screws through the threads on the backing plate. The holes on my backing plate were poorly tapped. Also, this will show you which holes aren't actually vertical
2. Remove the fan during install
3. Fully compress each screw spring. This will allow the screw to thread into the back plate more easily/cleanly. Shortening the spring a bit by fully compressing it doesn't affect the tension it generates.
This review is from: ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Overall, this has proven to be a great board. I don't use the onboard sound, so this feedback does not take audio into account. The board is well laid out, has many nice features.
Cons: There is a large caveat with this board. You CANNOT fill all 6 dimm slots before first boot. I loaded 6 GB DDR3 into mine (3x2GB). It only recognized half. Turns out, 1 slot of pair has to be populated, recognized, then the second half can be added. I was lucky enough to find the solution fairly quickly as its well documented on forums. I'm not if the issue is with the board, or chipset. I've seen posts regarding the same problem with other mobos.
Other Thoughts: I bought this board as part of a new build to replace my aging, and now dead, gaming machine. I've been thoroughly impressed with its stability, and performance under Win7 64bit.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: D-Link DWL-2100AP High Speed Wireless 108Mbps Access Point
Pros: Performed as advertised, while it worked.
Cons: Dlink Tech Support
Other Thoughts: After about 2 months of use, my unit began having an issue where the power would cycle every 2 seconds. My experience with the DLink support was terrible. Typical over seas tech that spoke English very poorly. In addition to the language barrior, the Tech was also rude and incompetent. Please do us all a favor and stop supporting companies that place such a low value on end-user support.READ FULL REVIEW
