This review is from: Silverstone FP35B USB 2.0 Card Reader with extra silver front panel
Pros: Nice Idea. I bought this because I wanted a unit with HD audio jack, card reader and Esata.
Cons: First unit had a short in audio jack due to poor soldering. I removed a glob that was touching its case but it still had a lot of background noise in the headphone jack. I returned it to Silverstone ($11 more invested) the noise in the replacement was worse and the Esata port is non functional.
Other Thoughts: I had a Silverstone SST-FP32-B and it has very clear sound and worked great (No card reader or Esata.) I went with a Rosewill card reader and am using the AC97 jack in the AeroCool fan controller. This thing is a waste of time and money.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Scythe KM02-BK 5.25" Bay Fan Controller
Pros: The pictures don't do it justice. Nice chrome trim around unit, display and knobs. Works well and seems well made. You can turn the fans off if you want to. Wires were plenty long enough in my rig. You can easily disable the buzzer( Yeh !) Newegg got it here fast, you just can't beat these guys.
Cons: A little more expensive than some units. Not as graphical as some other units.
Other Thoughts: I just wanted something simple that would hold up for a while (doesn't seem like there is much to go wrong with it.) Looks great in my NZXT M59 case mounted just above the power button and usb ports. The readout colors match up nice with the power and HD lights. Display has kind of a "retro" look to it. The numbers fluctuate and might bother some people but I think it gives it more style.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS5X SZ 92mm Hydraulic CPU Cooler Compatible with Intel Sandy Bridge
Pros: One pro that has not been mentioned is the excellent clearance of the memory slots allowing for the high heat sinks that some memory have. The cpu fan pulls air across the memory instead of blowing hot cpu air down onto the MB and out all sides onto the memory sticks like the stock coolers do. Idles at 35c and in game 2.8 Phenom 720 OC,ed to 3.2 goes to 45c. I also like the innovative design of the cooling fins ; )
Cons: Only one I can think of is finding a replacement fan a couple of years down the road.
Other Thoughts: Hold down for AMD works well and is less difficult to install than some coolers I have installed with the lever pull down clip.READ FULL REVIEW
