Pros: I got it for about a hundred, and it's plug-n-play. What more to say? Instant upgrade.
Cons: None really. It's 1333? not noticeable to me anyway.
Other Thoughts: I use Adobe, McNeel, and Audodesk software simultaneously and I've not maxed out the 16GB yet so I'm happy with this upgrade. Closest I've gotten was 13GB.
This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS10X Extreme 120mm CPU Cooler with Worlds first PWM Fan Speed Controller
Pros: This cooler has lasted me since 2009 and has run fine on two AMD set ups since. It is dead silent, and pretty efficient. No problems.
Cons: REALIZE THERE IS BAD and MINIMAL CUSTOMER SUPPORT. The number on their website goes to their office in Korea. After a lengthy Korean recording I can't understand anyway, it hangs up on you. And emails suggest they don't understand English.
Other Thoughts: I didn't want to reduce eggs because it is a good cooler and Newegg hasn't let me down.
However, don't expect to find any Zalman support. Look online and you'll see this is not an uncommon issue.
In my case, I need a mounting bracket/clip for LGA 1155 for my new build, which didn't come with the cooler (in 2009), and their email reply was "Yes. 1156 and 1155 has the exact same dimension." My second email clearly stating I need a 1155/1156 bracket seems to have gone ignored. I'm tired of waiting for a late and probably unhelpful email and I'm not wasting money on international calls that disconnect you. I'm glad the cooler I bought has been a champ this whole time, but I'd rather drop some cash and just buy a new cooler from another manufacturer with better support for the long run.
Pros: Good visuals. Quick delivery and process.
Cons: Took off an egg because I can't get audio to work with HDMI+AUX. My desktop video card only has DVI, and the aux cord/port on the monitor only works when I use the VGA port (gives the worst resolution,wow). Audio works with my laptop because it outputs audio through the hdmi port, but this monitor is for my desktop. The AUX port turns off on the monitor when I use the HDMI ports. There's no option to turn it back on either, and the manual is minimal. Apparently ASUS service number is also different for my area and I have to sit through the options and get redirected to Canada. It's annoying I have to use my headphones.
The color presets are not optimal, but they usually never are. The buttons are also not ideally placed but whatever.
Other Thoughts: It is what it is. I just want the audio to work. I don't see why it doesn't recognize the 3.5mm jack is plugged in and transmitting when the HDMI cable plugged in. Not everyone has an up-to-date card with hdmi output.READ FULL REVIEW
