Seagate Hybrid Drive ST1000DX001 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: See Other

Cons: I wasn't able to get the achieved performance because this drive lasted about 5 days before it failed. Had a Windows bluescreen, but couldn't catch why, and a complete lockup today. Power cycle PC and the HDD is not detected.

Other Thoughts: Been a long time fan of Seagate disks; and to have this quick of failure is an inconvenience. I'm going to start with NewEgg to fix this because it's still within their return policy.

WD WDBMYH3200ANC-NRSN 320GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: See Other

Cons: See Other

Other Thoughts: I did not buy this from NewEgg; I bought two of these from a local store, and found WDC has packaged these wrong. Boxed PN doesn't match physical drive PN; however, serial number on box and product match. WDC Warranty check said SN was bound to boxed PN, but since the drive is a different model, it will cause warranty issues.

Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan

5 out of 5 eggs Reviews are right 05/26/2013

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan

Pros: multi-universal (see cons), well reviewed, good price, and brand name of course! Touching the top of the fins have no heat - it dissipates very well.

Cons: multi-universal (see other thoughts), large, and the included instructions are barely not enough to understand without help. This was my first aftermarket cooler on a system I put together with new parts.

Other Thoughts: This cooler, since it's backwards compatible back to the LGA775 pinset, has 3 changeable presets depending on your socket type. The included instructions were too terse, too brief for newbies. Bottom line: if the back bracket needs modification to fit your CPU, SO DOES the top bracket that secures the heatsink to the CPU! After watching a couple youtube videos regarding the installation, the facts came together and installation was easy. The written instructions for first-timers just wasn't enough. Don't fear, just take your time and grab the videos. Practice a time or two without the compound to make sure things will line up. Don't forget to take off the protective plastic on the bottom of the heat sink when ready.

Dropped my Tjunc from the 64.7C down to 40C with all cores at steady 100% for several minutes. think the max I saw was 44C. 35-40C is typical.
