ADATA DashDrive UV128 32GB Flash Drive Model AUV128-32G-RBY
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Works great, fast transfer speeds, great boot drive, no data corruption. Installs Windows 8.1 in about 5 minutes or less.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I was a little skeptical since the price was so low but this drive is awesome. USB 2.0 speeds are maxed out and USB 3.0 speeds are amazing.

ZALMAN CNPS5X Performa 92mm FSB (Fluid Shield Bearing) Powerful Cooling Performance CPU Cooler
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Almost halved my CPU load temps over the factory 775 cooler. Multiple socket support. Under priced.

Cons: I was unable to install this with the fan facing the rear of the computer due to the chipset cooler on the ASUS P5KC. I had to face it up but.. I actually like this better since I have dual exhaust fans on the top of my case. My power supply is mounted on the bottom of my case as well. In a case that does not have exhaust fans on the top of this case, this would be less than ideal.

Other Thoughts: I've been running a Xeon x5460 (Socket 771 CPU) on a ASUS P5KC (Socket 775) motherboard using the sticker pin mod. With the stock cooler I was reaching temps as high 80C+ under full load with a stock clocks. Overclocked to around 3.6ghz with no added voltage it would run closer to 90C under full load. This CPU is capable of running 4ghz+ with a little added voltage but my temps would exceed 100C if I let it.

That led me to buying this cooler and I must say "Wow what a difference" My idle temps are barely over room temp 26C and full load temps have dropped to around 50-55C. Now I can run my Xeon @ 4.2ghz and it never breaks 60C.

Corsair Carbide Series 500R Black Steel structure with molded ABS plastic accent pieces ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -All the cooling options you could want.
-Very clean looking.
-Surprisingly quiet.
-More than a fair price.
-Feels like a full tower.

Cons: Not big problems..but here's a few nitpicks.

-The hard drive trays are 100% plastic. No metal clips or reinforcing metal. I look for these to break one day.

-Not all fan slots include filters.

-Doesn't come with enough fans to fill the case. I had to purchase a few extras.

-The rear fan is drawing air into the case... I changed it to an exhaust fan.

-Not all of the fans are attached to the fan controller, only the front two.

-The fan controller makes no noticeable difference in fan speeds.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a great case that won't disappoint for a price that doesn't hurt your pockets much, you found it.
