This review is from: SilenX IXN-40C Copper Chipset Cooler
Pros: Dropped temps from over 80*c down to 48*c on my x58 Pro motherboard.
it adds a blue LED which is nice and bright
it isn't really that loud at 100% and is almost unnoticeable at 50% fanspeed.
Cons: Only REAL con: Included heatpaste is a joke
The Bar mount is really mounted in there, Can't be removed without cutting it off.
Push pin mounting isn't very solid feeling allows it to move a little, However it's more than sufficient to hold this cooler to the NB without it really moving enough to be a concern. If you move your PC around a lot, you may want to double check to make sure it's secure correctly.
Because it's short, and round, there are a few cases like mine where a little trim work was needed, I had to trim about 5 fins off the very bottom edge to clear a couple caps. No biggie, and no eggs taken off, I had figured this mod was needed when I ordered.
Other Thoughts: It cleared my massive NH-D14 CPU cooler but ONLY just by a hair. the blue is VERY blue, and VERY bright (brightest in my case currently)READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: By far the coolest LED ram I've ever seen. They glow both as a UNDERLIGHT against the ram slot and up at the user. with the upper half blinking with a speed based on usage. It really brings life to the PC, and I'm really really happy with them. as far as function goes they work as their rated out of the box, no errors no problems!
Cons: The pattern is set, they don't blink as specific chips are access but rather in a repeating pattern that has a speed based on use. You wouldn't ever notice it unless you looked at them for a continues 10-15 seconds. and frankly with normal use you don't really notice because it's a long enough pattern to not be distracting.
Other Thoughts: Default was green, which was EXACTLY what we were looking for. SO we never used the program to change colors. the whole thing is wicked sick and I'll be using these for all of my next builds in the near future. They're a little taller than standard DDR3, even with a heat spreader, so just make sure your CPU cooler clears the ram area. ours was CLOSE but managed it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CM Storm Devastator - LED Gaming Keyboard & Mouse Combo (Green LED Model)
Pros: Bright even illumination across the keyboard. VERY easy to read keys when illuminated and looks badash!
Cons: Maybe it's just my computer's settings, but whenever I turn on the computer I have to manually TURN ON the backlight.
Keys are almost IMPOSSIBLE to read without the backlight on.
Mouse is always on, unless you remember to set the bios to not power USB while off. My Coolermaster mouse didn't need this setting change to turn off the light.
Other Thoughts: If you want a backlight keyboard, after looking around the bottomline is this is a AWESOME deal, it doesn't feel cheap, it works great, and it looks even better.READ FULL REVIEW
