Cooler Master NotePal i300 - Laptop Cooling Pad with 160 mm Blue LED Fan and Metal Mesh Surface
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Worth it, but a misleading title to be aware of 03/20/2014

This review is from: Cooler Master NotePal i300 - Laptop Cooling Pad with 160 mm Blue LED Fan and Metal Mesh Surface

Pros: -well constructed
-Fan lights are bright and it moves a ton of air
-Fan is not obnoxious
-sturdy metal mesh (must have fixed it from when people were complaining of it being flimsy)
-Perfect for a college backpck; not too thick or heavy
-not too small to sit on your lap

Cons: -It will not fit a 17.3" laptop perfectly. it measures 10.5" deep x 14.5" wide; 17.3" laptops are around 11.5" x 16" However, for me who is using a 17.3" laptop for school and needed it to fit in my backpack and be light, it will do its job, which is provide airflow.
-USB passthrough is a bit big
-cord could be slightly longer
-no way to store the cord when not in use

Other Thoughts: overall this is a great cooler as non of the cons were due to poor quality

G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Dual Channel Kit Laptop Memory Model F2-5300CL4D-4GBSQ
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Its nice gskill RAM, with low latency. It did raise the Windows experience index for the "memory" test a few points

Cons: I didnt notice any night-and-day performance difference on the laptop i put it in. Maybe thats because i already had 3GB installed, so i only had a gain of 1GB, or maybe its because the laptop is so old, the RAM cant make that big of a difference.

CORSAIR CX series CX430 430W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -The cables were the perfect length
-flexible so it was easy to tuck in the wires
-auto 120/240v switch that is usually found on more expensive models
-"Corsair" logo is inverted on one side so it is always right-side-up, whether you have the fan face down or up
-Nice looking
-Very quiet fan that auto adjusts to temp and decent heatsinks on capacitors
-80 plus Bronze

Cons: -only 430w with only one PCIe connector; wont be able to run majority of graphics cards

Other Thoughts: Overall very decent power supply for a work-type pc. Would not hesitate to buy again for an everyday build
