Archgon GALAXY USB 3.0 Slot-loading Aluminum DVD Super-multi w/Cyberlink Power2Go
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: USB 3.0. Looks sleek. No tray. Matches the finish on my new Ultrabook.

Fast. Loaded MS Office so quickly I thought something was wrong. Drive mechanism manufactured by Panasonic.

Cons: Pricey compared to 2.0.

Other Thoughts: Slot loading was a prerequisite. The sleek design and performance a plus.

ASUS GeForce GT 630 DirectX 11 GT630-2GD3 2GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I'm trying to keep a Q6600 machine alive for another year and needed DX11 and didn't want to spend a ton of money. This little card rocks...I can play COD Ghosts just fine although the video is a little laggy. Great looking graphics and color on TF2, and runs Steam just fine. It replaced an 8800GTS card I paid $$$ for eight years ago and only scored 1/10th of a point less on Windows Experience.

Cons: You absolutely must disable/delete any legacy geforce drivers on your machine prior to installation or you will get a black screen, like I did. VGA only before installation. I also flashed my bios and had to change the graphics from "auto" to "dedicated card" in the boot menu. Pre-download the correct current driver and only install the GPU Tweak from the included disk.

Other Thoughts: Very impressed with the performance/price ratio.

ZALMAN CNPS5X SZ 92mm Hydraulic CPU Cooler Compatible with Intel Sandy Bridge

5 out of 5 eggs Dreamy Installation... 04/16/2011

This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS5X SZ 92mm Hydraulic CPU Cooler Compatible with Intel Sandy Bridge

Pros: Super easy install for the AM socket motherboards. Painless, and that's why I bought it...I did not want to tear up my box just to install a new CPU fan. Works about a million times better than the stock fan. Inexpensive and a rebate on top. Why are you still reading this?

Cons: Zalman must have the heat fins manufactured at a machete plant in seems impossible to install one of these without slicing yourself to ribbons.

Other Thoughts: For a new build there might be better options. I have always used Zalman...they don't die.
