Seagate Constellation CS ST2000NC001 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: none

Cons: Ordered 4, all 4 were DOA. They were recognized by whatever SATA controller I plugged them in to but they would not function beyond drive identification. Seatools indicated Test Code 6C9AC2A4, unable to repair.

Other Thoughts: 4/4 DOA on an Enterprise drive!?!? I verified the failure on 4 different machines using 4 different controllers. I still can't believe it.

I bought 10 Seagate CS 3TB drives a few months ago and had no failures and would have used those again but the machine I was planning on using these in couldn't handle 3TB drives.

CORSAIR Hydro Series H80i High Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 120mm
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It's a water cooler.

Cons: Fans are ridiculously loud compared to the older Corsair watercooler solutions.

Corsair Link software is super picky and buggy causing BSOD's on install. My machine had MIcrosoft Certification Toolkit installed which caused the Corsair Link software to generate a BSOD on SysTrace.sys during install. Several reboots/failed installs later and a windows repair; I got it figured out and had to uninstall the MS Cert Toolkit then manually delete the SysTrace.sys file then reboot again. All this to get the Corsair Link software to install without crashing my machine. Cooler wasn't working very well so I wanted to get some diagnostic info from their software and/or update firmware.

Diagnostic info was less then helpful then the pump or pump controller failed so now I am waiting on an RMA on this 1 month old cooler.

I do not like that I have to install such a picky app to do a firmware update or get diagnostic info. I'd rather just not have a USB interface and have the device be more reliable.

Other Thoughts: I really liked the older H50s but if this is any indication of how the future quality/reliability is going to be, I will be looking elsewhere.

I picked up some different fans to deal with the noise issue (expensive Noctua NF-12's) but that REALLY shouldn't be needed...One of the biggest reasons to go with water cooling is noise reduction IMO...

I'm outside of 30 days from purchase date (by 6) so I'm waiting on Corsair's RMA process. Hope the replacement works out better.

Nippon Labs Black 6 ft. Pro A/V Premium Toslink Digital Optical SPDIF Audio Cable Male/ Male in Black Color  Model PT-6
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Work perfectly

Cons: Make sure you pull the little clear plastic nubs off the ends of the cable. They look like they're part of the cable but they are little clear vinyl coverings. Those who think they don't fit probably didn't remove the covers. They have worked perfectly on every optical connection I have tried (7 different devices).
