Pros: Good LED color
Cons: Noisier than they say they are. Not air noise, we're talking actual fan noise.
Other Thoughts: I was hoping that I had found a cheap quiet solution for my Deskputer build. I originally bought some quiet fans without LEDs but found it didn't showcase my work the way I wanted it to, so I needed more light. My mistake was getting Sleeve Bearing which is what these fans use. Compared to the fluid dynamic bearing fans I originally had connected to my radiator, these were immensely louder. It wasn't air noise either, it was a growling sort of sound that was amplified by my radiator and the cowl I had it mounted to. When I stopped the fans, the noise stopped. Sooooo, I'm going to use them somewhere else. Maybe my network rack so I can enclose it or something. Either way, if you want quiet fans, don't go cheap... get fluid dynamic fans. They are much more reliable and quiet.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary Xbox 360 Game
Pros: It's good ol' Halo and the PVP maps from it too
Cons: The campaign. Well, it's the same campaign which is fine, but the overlay causes issues in my opinion. I'll have a full .5 second delay between my moving the joystick and my reticle moving. Gunfire is also delayed. I have less issue when the new graphic mode is turned off, so I would have to place the blame on the game running an overlay on the old graphics.
It could be my TV, but honestly, if I change a thing in the game and get better response time, then it is most likely not the TV's fault.
Other Thoughts: I wouldn't pay $30 again for this. Basically the only great thing about this is the classic maps for the Reach online multiplayer.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TR2TT TR2-M12 80mm Ball CPU Cooler
Pros: I needed a quieter CPU fan for my old PC that I basically turned in to a media PC in my room. The old Intel CPU fan that came w/ my 3.2 GHz P4 HT processor was still kickin but it was LOUD! I figured replacing the whole cooler would probably be the best solution. I'd say I made a good choice. The fan is nice and quiet, I think the GPU card fan is the loudest part of my PC now.
Pretty inexpensive too.
Cons: Of course everyone has different levels of "difficulty" of installing this processor.
Personally, I had to wrestle with the brackets for a decent amount of time. I sweat and bled on it, but finally got it secured.
Other Thoughts: The blood was from my nose... don't ask me how I started bleeding from my nose... maybe pure exertion or something. Either way, it's installed and running beautifully. If you still have an old 478 socket CPU and need to quiet the fan down, this is a viable solution. Or just go for a new 60/80mm fan on the current one and see what happens... personally I like to keep original parts together.READ FULL REVIEW
