Tek Republic TUC-300  USB 3.0 Supports SD, SDHC, SDXC, Micro SD (t-Flash), MS, MS Pro, MS Duo, MS Pro Duo, and MSXC. 12-in-1 Card Reader
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I purchased this external USB 3.0 card reader to replace an older USB 2.0 internal card reader. Windows 7 64 Pro recognized it immediately and automatically loaded drivers.

I inserted a card from one of my cameras and the card reader worked as expected.

This is the first time in a very long time that I didn't have to load drivers from a CD-ROM disc or go to a web site to find drivers.

Cons: None

Noctua NF-A14 FLX 140mm Case Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent Cooling and Reduced Noise 01/30/2014

This review is from: Noctua NF-A14 FLX 140mm Case Fan

Pros: Easy installation and reduced noise.

I purchased six of these fans to match the two Noctua NH-U12P SE2 CPU heatsinks I also purchased from newegg. The combination of the fans balances airflow and cooling quite nicely.

The lower rpm of the fans helps to reduce noise to an acceptable level while still providing excellent cooling.

Cons: Cost

Other Thoughts: These 140mm, 1,200 rpm fans are more than adequate for typical everyday use, home office use, and casual gaming. For hardcore gaming and overclocking Newegg offers Noctua 140mm fans that operate at 1,500 rpm.

These fans are not silent or inaudible. There is still some noise but they are definitely quieter than other fans I have tried. There is no high pitched sound. It is more like white background noise.

Noctua NH-U12P SE2 120mm SSO CPU Cooler
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent Cooling and Less Noise 01/30/2014

This review is from: Noctua NH-U12P SE2 120mm SSO CPU Cooler

Pros: I purchased two of these kits for my home office computers - one is an Intel Core i7 system and one is an AMD APU system. Both installations were very easy. With the SecuFirm2 Multi-Socket Mounting System the CPU heatsink is held firmly in place. The NF-P12 fans operate at a maximum of 1,300 rpm. Cooling is still good while the lower rpm help reduce noise. This tower style heatsink will fit in tower cases that are a minimum of 8 inches wide measured across the top of a tower case.

Cons: 1. Cost.

2. The two NF-P12 fans come with 3-pin connectors instead of 4-pin connectors. There is no pwm feature. If you need or want the pwm feature you'll have to purchase the NF-P12 PWM fan.

3. The CPU heatsink can be installed on an Intel motherboard so that hot air is exhausted out the rear panel of a case or it can be turned 90 degrees so hot air is exhausted out the top panel of a pc case. On AMD motherboards the heatsink can only be mounted so that hot air is exhausted out the top panel of a pc case. If you want to install it so that hot air is exhausted out the rear panel of a pc case you have to purchase a separate Noctua mounting kit.

Other Thoughts: The Noctua NH-U12P SE2 is an older model. It is an excellent cpu cooler that is reasonably quiet and suitable for typical every day use, home office use, and casual gaming. Newegg also sells the Noctua NH-U12S which is a newer model that is more appropriate for gamers and enthusiasts. The NH-U12S comes with 120mm fans that have the pwm feature and operate at a maximum of 1,500 rpm. For hardcore gaming and extreme overclocking Newegg offers Noctua models with 140mm fans operating at 1,500 rpm.
