Silicon Power Ultima U03 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model SP016GBUF2U03V1K
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Cheap - that's about it.

Cons: Write speed is very slow. I extracted a ZIP file to this and noticed it was rather slow. I connected a Sandisk to the other front USB port and started the extraction process to it, when the SP was 44% complete. What amazed me is that the Sandisk still finished first, and it was another 2 minutes before the Silicon Power completed.

Other Thoughts: I have had this USB drive for quite some time, and this is the first time I thought to do a real world test.

CORSAIR Hydro Series H60 (CW-9060007-WW)  High Performance Water / Liquid CPU Cooler. 120mm
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Good price with rebate. Once I got it mounted, which took extra effort (see below), the CPU runs under 30 degrees C.

Cons: This suffers from what one reviewer noted as "thin motherboard syndrome". The posts on the backplate extended above the system board, thereby making the assembly very loose, so my first attempt yielded CPU temps in the 40's C.

Other Thoughts: In order to rectify the situation, I had to completely remove the motherboard from the case, due to the fact that I have an older Antec Sonata II, and the other side panel is not removable. To fix the loose posts, I used some thin pieces of cardboard from the motherboard packing as washers on the bottom of the motherboard. If a few, inexpensive fiber washers could be included, that would be helpful with the new, thinner mobo's.

ICY DOCK EZ-Fit Lite MB290SP-B 2 x 2.5” to 3.5” Drive Bay SATA/IDE SSD/HDD Mounting Kit / Bracket / Adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Easy to install the SSD's. I picked this up on a sale deal.

Cons: Not the fault of the manufacturer, as this doesn't quite work with an older Antec Sonata II case. Of course, I've had this case for a number of years and hate to "retire" it.

Other Thoughts: Should have picked up 2 on the sale deal, although I was hesitant knowing that my case is older.
