Intel Pentium G2120 Ivy Bridge Dual-Core 3.1GHz LGA 1155 Desktop Processor BX80637G2120
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: -Cheap
-Strong dual core performance
-Faster than most core 2 duo's

Cons: -None for what it is

Other Thoughts: I was running a core 2 quad Q6600 for the longest time. I got a great deal on a 3rd gen board from a coworker so I needed a cheap processor to pop in it until I had saved up for an i7. I was even able to game with an HD7970 with no problems. Obviously this processor was the bottleneck but still, for the price it is pretty sweet. I would recommend this in a build for someone who doesn't game. Like a parent or coworker who just wants a new computer that can do basic tasks with ease. It is even good for a work pc, as long as you aren't rendering or anything.

Pros: -Blazing fast
-Ultra stable
-Looks sweet!

Cons: -Nada

Other Thoughts: Very awesome RAM, great price. Ran it for over a year on an Asus MOBO. My pc stays on 24/7. Getting ready to buy another pair and up it to 16GB!

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

Pros: -Large fan provides significant cooling
-Fan is whisper quiet
-Blue LED's make a really cool blue glow under my laptop
-Is much thinner than some of the other ones
-Doesn't have too high of an incline
-Doesn't take up a USB port because it has a passthrough connector, letting you plug in another peripheral with it

Cons: -Because the plug lets you use another device with it, it sticks out pretty far, especially if you plug something else in with it
-If you don't plug another device into it, it is sharp and can hurt if you are not careful

Other Thoughts: I bought this one because it is CoolerMaster which is one of my favorite brands, has the blue LED which I am a sucker for, and had a much lower incline and was thinner than many of the other ones. I didn't neccessarily want this for cooling as much as I wanted to be able to use my laptop on the bed withouth choking the fan vents. Some of the cooling pads have such a steep incline and look kind of ridiculous.
I am very surprised how much air the fan produces and how quiet it is. Very good plus for me.
On a final note, I am knocking a fan off because it was damaged during delivery. The fan had completely broken off its mounts and was sliding around inside. To RMA I was going to have to pay for return shipping and then wait at least another week to have another one shipped. I am not patient enough for that so I decided to open it up and see if I could fix it. Luckily, the fan itself wasn't damaged and I was able to super glue it all back together. Haven't had any problems with it since. Just something to keep in mind. Aside from that, its a good cooling pad.
