This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor70 Series II Floorstanding Loudspeaker (Black) Single
Pros: I got 4 of these to go with a CS2 Series II center channel speaker and PSW505 subwoofer. Even with the odd shape of my living room space, they fill the room with sound, and paired with my Denon AVR-X2000 receiver, the quality of the suround in 5.1 is great! Plenty of bass, except for lower frequency, but that's what the sub and buttkickers are for. Highs are clear but not tinny.
Cons: My wife won't let me purchase two more as back surrounds for 7.1.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Have had this board for well over a year, and have yet to have any problems with it. Worked right out of the box.
Cons: Mid to high price, but you get what you pay for.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9900MAX-B 135mm Long life bearing CPU Cooler Blue LED
Pros: Cools my Intel Core i7-3930K Sandy Bridge quite nicely and very quietly. Temp at idle is around 27 to 33 degrees. The blue LED is a nice touch and complements the coloring of the heat-sinks of the motherboard I've got.
Other Thoughts: No screws for mounting it to a motherboard with a socket LGA 2011, but then it's not listed as being compatible. As it turns out, the screw needed is a metric M4-0.7 size screw, easily obtainable at a local hardware store. add in a couple or three small washers on each screw, and this cooler will bolt right on, no fuss-no muss.
Even with having to install the backplate etc on the sockets it's listed as being compatible with, it's not difficult or time-intensive to do.
If you've already got this cooler and want to upgrade to a socket 2011 board and cpu, you can do so without having to shell out the money for a liquid cooling kit from Intel or Corsair.
