This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H80i High Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 120mm
Pros: The pump works great.
Cons: After only 2 days of operation, everything failed but the pump. If I plug the fans into the water block, they don't work. But, the fans will work if I plug them into the motherboard. The water block no longer lights up. Also, CosairLink no longer recognizes the unit.
Other Thoughts: I basically paid for a basic water pump with no features. That's not what I expected, but it's what I got. Looks like I might have to RMA it. :(READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: NETGEAR WNDA3100-100NAR IEEE 802.11a/b/g, IEEE802.11n Draft USB 2.0 RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N Adapter Up to 300Mbps Wireless Data Rates Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA2-PSK, WPA-PSK), Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) 64-bit, 128-bit.
Pros: Shipped fast and cheap.
Cons: It worked good for about two weeks, then went bad. Not surprising since they're "recertified". Experienced a lot of lag on online games. Can't get a refund.
Other Thoughts: I got the new driver off of the bat, but i had issues from the start. Idle, the speed would be 270Mbs. Online gaming, it would drop to 10-12Mbs. I have 20Mbs internet, so it had to be the adapter. I have an PCI 802.11g adapter and it gets 20Mbs with online gaming. I just got a linksys adapter, hopefully it will perform better. Don't buy, waste of money. It is only covered with a "Limited Replacement Warrant", which means you can return it for a replacement, but not a refund.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: XIGMATEK HDT-RS1283 120mm CPU Cooler
Pros: It works and is quite.
Cons: Not a good setup for an AM2 socket. It mounts horizontally. Which with the AM2 socket, makes weight and heat distribution uneven. Causing the heatsink to not perform at it's best. While it was mounted, it actually contorted my MB. Luckily, nothing cracked or broke. I replaced it with the manufacture's heatsink and fan. It keeps my AMD Athlon2 6400 5 degrees c cooler than with the Xigmatek.
Other Thoughts: The Xigmatek probably works fine on other sockets. I don't recommend it for the AM2 socket.READ FULL REVIEW
