Corsair Air Series SP120 (CO-9050014-WW) 120mm PWM High Performance Edition High Static Pressure Fan (Twin Pack)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: +Relatively quiet even at full speed, especially compared to the fans they replaced.
+Dropped my temps by ~2C

Cons: +Oddly, the cables are a bit too long for me.
+Air pressure leaks around the oddly shaped frame if you use them on a radiator, unless you use tape to seal them off.

Other Thoughts: I used these to replace the fans on my Antec Kuhler H20 920. The stock ones were rattling like a 12 valve Cummins because the bearings ran dry, and Antec helpfully melted a plastic slug over the bearing so you couldn't relubricate them without using a drill to break through. Obviously, that's a recipe for destroying your fans further.

I was originally going to use Noctua NF-F12's, but due their price and several reviews about how they're not really that great at the static pressure thing (and the fleshy coloring,) I ended up with a 2 pack of Corsair SP120 fans instead. So far so good.

Polk Audio PSW Series PSW10 Black 10-inch Powered Subwoofer Single
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: $90 for a Polk product? Irresistible.

Even at 40% volume, this sub is powerful enough to rattle things off the walls/shelves in my 10x16' room. It's a little overkill for such a small space, but I've never heard MitiS sound so good. Glad I live in the sticks.

Bass quality is great except for the few moments that the vent gets overwhelmed (and makes flatulent noises.) Could easily be fixed with some more polyfill and a voided warranty, but I very rarely hit that limit.

Cons: Takes up a lot of room for a 10" sub?

I had to use some seriously bassy music to track down all the things around the house that were rattling, and either move or secure them. Pet peeve. Don't know how people can throw 12" 500W subs into their hooptied out Pontiac GrandAm, blast rap, and not get irritated by the clattering sound of the car getting shaken to pieces.

Other Thoughts: I'm running this off of my SB Audigy 2 ZS with a 200Hz crossover frequency. Turned the crossover knob on the sub all the way up, since I don't plan on using the speaker connections. Running the subwoofer signal to the non-LFE input using an RCA->2xRCA cable.

I upgraded from a 6" Cambridge SoundWorks sub that blew its amplifier. The difference in bass response and clarity is worth the amount of space this sub takes up in comparison with the old one.

Definitely recommend, especially if you get it on sale.

HIS HMDPSDVIEYE Mini DisplayPort to Single Link-DVI Eyefinity Adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Did a good job of running an extra display off of my Radeon HD 6950 for a little under a year; I was surprised by the low amount of screen tearing for a cheapy active adapter.

Cons: It failed after less than a year, and ofc it couldn't of just died completely to make my troubleshooting easier. Firstly, it's been randomly cutting of video to the monitor connected to it (which I attributed to it getting hot from the air coming out of my GPUs.) Worse yet, during any sort of GPU load, it causes atikmdag.sys to timeout, in turn causing a scrambled BSOD.

At first I thought it was everything but the adapter (GPUs themselves, motherboard, PSU, RAID card...,) but on a whim I removed it and ran Furmark for 12 hours without issue. Plugged it back in, and after ~16 minutes of a burn-in test, my computer gave me a BSOD again.

Other Thoughts: I might have an isolated case, but be prepared for yours to prematurely fail.
