Phanteks PH-TC14CS_BL 140mm UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) CPU Cooler
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Good color blue, up or down draft, a 120 mm fan fits on this cooler with the provided clips.

Cons: It's not built high enough for medium or high profile ram. No ram higher than 42 mm , (installed on the MOBD) measured from the MOBD surface to the highest point of the memory heat spreader. One egg less for not being made high enough. There should be not excuse why this cooler is not high enough. Only high-end gamers and overclockers with high-end wide cases are going to buy these, so why not make it higher??? Using a high-end cooler with low profile ram is not a good idea !!?? Not a big deal for me since I only do light overclocking, never heavy. I will make my G.Skill sniper DDR3-1866 ram work for this cooler, even if I have to bend or clip off one end of the sights that are on the top of the heat spreader or just keep off the bottom fan. Even with the 120 mm fan on the bottom it still hits the first ram slot. Was only able to orientate this cooler one way with the cooler pipes toward the pc plug-in's and the 8-pin cpu power connector and the bottom 140 mm fan sticks over all the ram slots.

Other Thoughts: The holes on the 140 mm fans are in the exact same place as the holes on my cooler master 120 mm fans. So you could swap the 140's for 120's if you want and the clips work fine. I have a Gigabyte AMD MOBD GA-990FXA-UD5 rev.3.0 and G.Skill sniper DDR3-1866 ram memory. I will give another review when I test this cooler some more.

CORSAIR Flash Voyager GT 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFVYGT3B-64GB

2 out of 5 eggs 2 Bad Drives in a row, Glitchy 12/16/2014

This review is from: CORSAIR Flash Voyager GT 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFVYGT3B-64GB

Pros: I like how it feels in the hand. looks nice and pro. It does work in usb 3.0 and 2.0

Cons: This is my second review on this product. It's too thick for some ports or cases. Thinner is better? This is the second drive I received of this product and It did not work in my ports until I push the drive to the left and hold it there. Then it worked perfectly, BUT? Who wants a drive you have to hold it in place for it to work. That's crazy !! Also, this drive has eject issues. I close it myself and it still says it's open when it is not. As I have said in my other review, I have used other usb drives in the same ports with no issues at all. just issues with this usb drive. Just wanted to tell others to buy another usb drive or maybe you will be fortunate to get a good one.

Other Thoughts: I RMA'd the first drive for the same problem, and the second one has the same problem too??? MMM??? A bad batch it seams? It cost me $10.50 to send the first drive + $65 + another RMA and $10.50 mmm this is adding up to be one expensive drive. It will not pay for me to send this drive back, again, so I am not going to RMA this, again. I'm just going to live with holding it in or maybe I'll use some scotch tape on it until I'm done with it or get so fed up with it and just throw it away. This is the first Corsair usb stick I have bought and my last one as well !! UNLESS Corsair refunds all my money I have lost AND give me a good working usb 3.0 drive like I wanted in the first place. Is that too much too ask?? Why should the customer lose money because of there bad drives???
