This review is from: BitFenix BFA-AAL-20RK6-RP Alchemy Aqua LED-Strip Red 20cm
Pros: Wow, these are great lights, and they are bright too, but not too bright that they make my case look tacky. Really, there isn't much to say about these lights other than, AWESOME!!!
Cons: Okay, this is a little bit cruddy IMO, the adhesive. :/ For what I paid, I expected to get way better adhesive. This stuff sucks, and won't stick to anything for anything. Honestly, after a few days of messing with it and messing with it, I finally decided to gorilla glue those suckers on and I haven't looked back. I recommend something other than gorilla glue, because that stuff is pretty permanent.
Other Thoughts: Other than the cruddy adhesive, I recommend this lighting fixture to anyone who is looking to make their case look a lot cooler.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: So, this is my first liquid cooler, and I'm really not disappointed. First of all, the installation was a lot less painful than I expected, but it did take a hefty amount of work, though I'd do it again to get the results I'm seeing now. My FX-8320, running with the stock cooler at 4.0 GHz was running at about 36 C on idle, and would get up to about 65 - 69 C on full load with Prime95. After installing this and letting the thermal paste set in, I'm reading temps of 23 C on idle and 51 - 53 on full load with Prime95!! I further overclocked my processor to 4.5 GHz, and at idle is running at 31 C on idle and 55 - 60 on full load! Wow, and that's with the fans at 100% speed. ( recommend installing speedfan, you won't regret it). Installation took about 30+ minutes, but I thankfully only had to take out the fan on the back of my case. The motherboard was able to stay put. Honestly, for the price, I would highly recommend this product.
Cons: The fans are LOUD!!! Really, they are super loud on their highest speed setting at max speed, but, at least they work the way they are supposed to. I recommend getting different, quieter fans to put on here, you won't regret it.
Other Thoughts: All in all, this is a great cooler and I can only recommend it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GUNNAR Gaming Eyewear - PPK Gloss Onyx Frame
Pros: I admit to having been skeptical at first, thinking that these might be gimicky, but I took a chance, and boy am I glad I did!! These are amazing glasses, and they really do decrease eye fatigue/strain to next to nothing! Also, the slight tint of yellow doesn't really change much, I would recommend these to anyone who sits at a computer for many hours in a day either working or gaming, because I do both and use them for both, and absolutely cannot go back! Also, the storage bag that comes with them can double as a cleaning wipe, so, yeah, there's that.
Cons: Honestly, like others have said, the frame feels like it has been made out of cheap materials, but I haven't broken them yet, and didn't feel the need to dock an egg for it either.
Other Thoughts: Already recommended them to a co-worker whose daughter is experiencing eye strain while looking at her kindle, and she bought a pair for her, and is thinking about buying a pair for herself as well!READ FULL REVIEW
