This review is from: GIGABYTE SUMO OMEGA GZ-ZSUCWP Black ABS + Steel ATX Mid Tower Mid Tower
Pros: Lots of room and cooling. Just by installing my stuff in this case, I was able to drop 3 deg C off the CPU temp in a stress test, relative to my old case. Good cable management system (more on that in cons, also).
Cons: Some of the cable management clips and such are pretty delicate. I broke two of them during assembly. Be careful.
Hare disk cages needed modification with a pair of diagonal cutters to make a 2." SSD work. The drive fit just fine, but the SATA power cable was crazily torqued trying to fit it in the socket on the drive. I had to cut away some of the plastic to relieve the stress.
This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9500A-LED 92mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler
Pros: As the vast majority of the other reviews here can attest, this is clearly one of the best coolers on the market. Installation was a snap. Price was excellent.
Other Thoughts: This really reveals how inadequate my OEM cooler was. CPU temps are 25 deg C lower.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Kingston 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1333 Mac Memory Model KTA-MB1333K2/8G
Pros: Breathed new life into my late 2008 2.4 Ghz Macbook Pro 5,1. I used to measure the time to launch Lightroom with a calendar. Now it's up and ready to go in under 5 seconds. Awesome! With the macbook pro firmware MBP51.007E.B06, these run at full 1333 Mhz, even though the old memory was 1066. Super easy to install too.
Cons: none so far
Other Thoughts: Oh, and really reasonable price on newegg.READ FULL REVIEW
