This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan
Pros: This replaced the Intel stock cooling of the E3-1275v3 on my Workstation server motherboard SuperMicro X10SAE0, it fits perfectly and the installation took less than 15 minutes. I was topping 90c with the Intel stock cooling while using all 8 threads intensively, now the temperature never gets above 50-60c on full load and stay at 30c on idle.
Cons: None. I should have bought this kit on my initial build order.
Other Thoughts: If you run on Linux, make sure to take profits of the utility named fancontrol, this help regulate the fan speed adjusting properly the rpm of the fan depending on the load/temp of the cpu, your motherboard, however, has to be supported.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: NETGEAR WPN824N-100NAS RangeMax N150 Wireless Router IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g/n
Pros: Router works great out of the box and is way stronger than my previous one.
Cons: The plastic stand wasn't included in the box, I frankly don't understand that one, I'm very disappointed as I would have liked to receive a product with complete parts and that one is the most important.
Other Thoughts: there is clearly a stand in the picture, why it wasn't in the box?????READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The Corsair CX750 is a well built, very heavy and nicely made power supply, it doesn't feel cheap and has been working flawlessly for over a month now firing up a Linux workstation which run's several QEMU virtual machines.
Cons: Had to buy an after market and very standard ATX Power Extension Cable 24 Pin to 24 Pin, because the PSU 24 pin wouldn't snap into my motherboard, it was 1mm short, although that I can admit that I have a very custom build running on a server motherboard. You shouldn't have that problem if you are using a normal consumer motherboard.
Also, when the computer is not running, there is a high pitched squealing noise coming off the PSU, that shouldn't be the case with such an high priced PSU, but since this is used in a custom build Workstation, it doesn't bother me because it is always running 24/7.
Other Thoughts: For having owned alot of cheaper PSU, I can admit that minus the few problems listed, this is a very solid unit.READ FULL REVIEW
