Cooler Master HAF X Blue Edition - High Air Flow Full Tower Computer Case with Windowed Side Panel and USB 3.0
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: This case has a lot of room for video cards, MB, CH80 CPu cooler etc. It uses very little energy and keeps the gaming i7980 and Nvidia 680 cool and humming.

Cons: The additional fan and shroud for the back of the video cards will not fit when you use the more modern 680 cards and above my MSI or Gigabyte. NP however the computer is cool as a cucumber.

CM Storm SF-19 - Large Gaming Laptop Cooling Pad with Dual 140 mm Turbine Fans and Multicolor LED Lighting
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: sturdy construction with good tilt toward user so the laptop screen is easily seen.
USB ports great while they worked. Has its own power source.
My MSI i7 820 QM runs at 160to 180 degrees F without the pad and 150 to 172 F with it. With the back of the laptop off for more air access it drops the temperature to 145 to 165 F. Not a real heat reduction when compared to the desktop cooling systems but I have been told the i7's just run hot in laptops. the NVIDIA stays from 120 to 135 F.

Cons: the female mini usb connector used to connect the 4 satellite usb ports on the cooler to the laptop came loose from its circuit board. tried gluing it back but the glue didn't hold it under the pressure needed to get the mini usb chord inserted. So,now no extra usb 2 ports. I bought it in February 2013 and didn't start using it much till June. Then the issue. Oh well.

Other Thoughts: I'd probably buy another but I would definitely watch that connector.
Cooler master should ID this and consider reinforcing that mini usb 2 port.

ASUS P6T7 WS Supercomputer
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I don't know as the MB only booted to bios and would not allow me to load Win 7 Prof
It is supposed to be a good board but I can't say at this time.Issue is with no product support from Newegg. First time so I was surprised.

Cons: The MB was defective upon receipt. It is odd but I sent it back to Newegg after extensive testing recommended by ASUS and Newegg said that the socket pins were likely bent during installation ugh. So no product support or warranty. Out $299. I contacted ASUS and for $120 extra and shipping they will fix the board...I hope. While I am pretty dissatisfied with Newegg's response, I begrudgingly understand it. ASUS is super! They were very cordial and helpful.MB is in the mail and time will tell.
