Seagate Barracuda STBD2000101 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Fast drive - used it almost exclusively to store game installs.

Cons: Died a little more than a year and a half after purchase. Seagate RMA page tells me the drive is out of warranty. Had to email support directly and send them my receipt and the store page showing a 2 year warranty. Hopefully I'll get a replacement.

Other Thoughts: This drive had about 500 days of uptime and died. The older seagate I have is up to 1600+ uptime days with zero SMART alerts. Hopefully I just got a bum drive.

Thermaltake TR2 TR-600 600W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Had a great set of connectors for my AMD FX build. Had just enough SATA power connectors for all my drives (6). Matched my black Redbone case perfectly.

Cons: Lasted almost exactly 60 days before developing an ear-piercing squeal. Sent in the rebate IMMEDIATELY after building my system (following the instructions EXACTLY) and I still haven't received it.

Other Thoughts: would be a great PSU, even without the rebate incentive if it actually worked without screaming at me.

Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs wow-appended 03/20/2014

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan

Pros: HD Video encoding maxes all 8 cores of my AMD FX 8320. This made the stock cooler sound like a vacuum cleaner when it spun up. The Evo 212 is FAR quieter during that same process and temps never got above 47c. At idle (15-20c) I can barely hear it running.

Cons: BIG. Fit in my Redbone case, but just barely. The side panel ends up resting against the top of the heat pipe.

Other Thoughts: I was apprehensive that this thing would be loud or not cool good enough. Just get it. Pay attention to the airflow on the mounted fan though. It's oriented to push air through the heatsink instead of pulling out. You might be tempted to point the fan towards the back of your case, but you'd end up blowing hot air towards your drives if you did that. Clip the fan to the internal side of the heatsink or remove the brackets and flip it to pull.
