ZALMAN CNPS5X Performa 92mm FSB (Fluid Shield Bearing) Powerful Cooling Performance CPU Cooler
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Quiet, works well at first, cheap

Cons: Rarely used the computer this was used on, in a spare bedroom, back up pc. Today, the feet were broken on two of the posts and the HSF was leaning on my video card. Hope nothing got shorted on that. Absolute junk.

Other Thoughts: DO NOT BUY

1 out of 5 eggs Do NOT buy 05/01/2010

This review is from: CoolIT SYSTEMS ECO-R120 Advanced Liquid Cooling (ALC)

Pros: Cheap, great concept. Like my Corsair H50, this theoretically will be better as it expels the air rather than drawing it in.

Cons: Let me preface by saying I've been a PC gamer since the 1980s. I'm a beta tester for on of the large hardware companies as a hobby, worked in IT/IS for the last 11 years.

And boy do I HATE the install procedure for this product. I have wasted two hours of a Saturday morning trying to get all four of the screws to line up. I've installed multiple water systems before, countless HSFs, and I can't get this one to fit.

I have a Coolermaster Cosmos 1010 case, herein lies another problem. The ECO made it so my Asus P6T Deluxe barely fits, the chipset heatsink barely clears the hoses of the ECO, and the block is way too close to the radiator. The hoses are bent at close to right angles.

Worst of all is the godawful screw situation though, I would have spent $75 NOT to do this.

I had very high hopes for this product, I just got 480GTX SLi and hoped to expel the heat from my i7 965 out of the case. PCs should be easy to work with, not with CoolIt. Beware!

Other Thoughts: Life is short. Work with parts that are easy to install, even if they cost more.

I'm going to return it if I spend much more time on this wretched thing.

Patriot Viper 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model PVT36G1600ELK
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This is a very nice 6GB kit, very fairly priced.

Love the XMP settings, just turned the bios to XMP and it sets it at 1600MHz and correct timing/voltage automatically.

Personally, I have a lot to do as a NVIDIA Focus Group member/forum mod and playing around with trial and error OCing is not high on my list of things to do.

This kind of convenience and stability is most welcome in my box.

Running it on an Asus P6T-Deluxe mainboard with i7 965.

Cons: None I've seen.

Other Thoughts: Recommend.
