OCZ Agility 4 AGT4-25SAT3-256G 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: *Sata III
*Reliable (will speak on this later)
*Fast

Cons: *3 Year warranty (versus the 5 year of the Vertex 4)

Other Thoughts: To the people on here complaining about their SSD being "dead". Your SSD is not dead at all. It is simply a firmware issue with the initial shipment of this product, it happened with raid configurations of the initial Agility 3 as well. Firmware upgrades are simply apart of what you need to learn how to do with an SSD. It's a technology that is expanding quickly and becoming more and more affordable every day. So rather than sitting on here and crying about how your SSD has "died", go to the OCZ forums or something and first check to see if anyone else has the problem and then see if OCZ has made any responses to the problem. Then rather than coming here and complaining and spending time RMA'ing your device which is not dead by any means, you can just flash the firmware and have it work just as good as any other drive.

Looking for the Vertex 4/Agility 4 Firmware 1.5 Final thread might be a good start...

CM Storm Sirus - True 5.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset with Control Module
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -5.1 Surround (even though there are technically 2 subs)
-Not virtual surround (i'll explain this later)
-Nice Microphone
-I like being able to use USB OR Analog audio connections.
-Comfort (when compared to the likes of Turtle Beach HPA/Ear Force Charlie/Z6A, Tritton AX Pro/PC510 HDA, Psyko Carbon)
-Solid Plastic
-No gloss (therefore hair/dust/fingerprints won't show)

Cons: -Price (when compared to Turtle Beach Z6A, and Tritton PC510 HDA)
-Technology (will explain more later as well)

Other Thoughts: First off, the person "N/A" who commented earlier on static in his mic is having this issue BECAUSE he put his mic boost at +30, which made his mic so super sensitive that it was causing static. That aside, after using several different types of 5.1 surround sets such as the logitech G930, Razer Megalodon and a couple others. I've decided that while the virtual surround is indeed a very viable option, it simply cannot reproduce sound from multiple directions SIMULTANEOUSLY accurately. What this means is if there are two people, both standing on your right side, one is in front and on is in back, the audio engine for those headsets will have trouble reproducing the sound. Which is where headsets like these shine quite well. The reason i put Technology as a con is because...it's the same design for 5.1 that's been used for several years...and hasn't changed...look at the turtle beach HPA/HPX...point made. But still this is a great headset, and one of the top 5.1 standard sets available.

ENERMAX T.B. Silence UCTB12P 120mm PWM Function Case Fan
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great Fans 01/23/2012

This review is from: ENERMAX T.B. Silence UCTB12P 120mm PWM Function Case Fan

Pros: High CFM
Good Static Pressure
Very Quiet (can't say for sure what the DB's are though)
PWM
Look good
Braided Cable
Aluminum Rim

Cons: I have no real cons for this fan. However one thing that kinda just bugs me is the cut out for the enermax name on the aluminum rim, while i'll admit i'm not an expert on aerodynamics, i would think that somehow it would reduce the funneling of air through the fan itself by letting it escape through the cutout, thus recycling already heated air into the case. But like I said, i'm no expert on the subject matter, and its very possible that the way it pushes air negates said thing.
Price (their really not that overpriced...but cheaper is always better)
Include Rubber Fan mounts

Other Thoughts: But in terms of what i've seen these fan do in person is awesome. I've owned Stock Antec/Cooler Master, used Enermax Magma fans. And the Magma's were freaking awesome, but they lacked PWN...so this being same essential design and all works really nice. Though i do think they are just a tad louder, and according to the tech specs they should have higher cfm and static pressure...but there's no way i can tell being that i don't own that kind of equipment. Great fans though, will buy more in future builds.

Rig I Used These In:
Asus P6X58D Premium
Intel Core I7 920 @ 3.99GHZ
MSI GTX 580 Twin Frozr II O.C. Edition
2GB x2 Mushkin Enchanced Blackline 1600MHz latency 7's
Western Digital Velociraptor 10K 600GB x1
Western Digital Caviar Black 7.2K 1TB x2
Corsair H60 CPU Cooler
2x Enermax T.B. Silence 120mm Case Fans for H60 CPU Cooler
Kingwin 1000 Watt PSU Lazer Gold
Asus 24X DVD Burner
Cooler Master Storm Scout Mid-Tower (Front and top fans are stock...for now)
