CORSAIR CAFA70 120mm A70 Dual-Fan CPU Cooler
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Nice cooler :) , Bad Rebate :( 12/21/2011

This review is from: CORSAIR CAFA70 120mm A70 Dual-Fan CPU Cooler

Pros: The cooler performs well with 130W 1366 socket processors.

Cons: After 10wks I received a letter indicating that my submission did not qualify for postmarked date. The rebate only gives 21 days from purchase to submit, I completed mine in 14 days. I've had success in the past with two other rebates, so why deny this one now? Who knows, but don't count on your rebate.

Other Thoughts: When considering a Heatsink, don't factor the price minus rebate. Because you may not get it.

No support for the 2011 socket processors. I sent a email to support and they had a very short reply-"No it's not compatible, and there's no plan to modify the retention bracket."

X Games Protective Case for iPod Touch 4th Gen - Platinum Black
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs If you value your IPOD, Don't get this 06/21/2011

This review is from: X Games Protective Case for iPod Touch 4th Gen - Platinum Black

Pros: -

Cons: Received this as part of a promotion when I purchased an IPOD touch 32GB. A short drop 6-8inches onto a counter-top shattered my screen. This case offers no drop protection, very weak corners that shear off at the slightest impact.

Like I said in the title, if you value your device, get a better case. Free is sometime not worth it.

PNY RVCGGTX470XXB GeForce GTX 470 (Fermi) 1280MB 320-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Price. Cheaper that new.

Cons: One of my cards looked really beat up, no stickers and scratched. Ironically it was the better of the two cards. System crashed with BSOD (IRQ less than) errors and sometimes just went black and required reset. When they did work the temperatures were worse than my quad GTX 295 setup.

Other Thoughts: This was my first and last time buying a recertified video card. The price makes it tempting, but now I'm burdened with the cost of return shipping and will have to receive another recertified card that I have zero confidence in. I guess I'm stuck with them so hopefully the next cards will work.
