Syba SY-ENC25042 USB 3.0 USB 3.0 Dual 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs better than expected 02/29/2016

This review is from: Syba SY-ENC25042 USB 3.0 USB 3.0 Dual 2.5" SATA Drive RAID Enclosure

Pros: USB 3.0. power plug is USB, no wall wart or y/cable needed.
bay holds 2 2.5 hard drives and can run them in RAID configuration without additional software. just a matter of setting the switches inside correctly.

Cons: none yet

Other Thoughts: impulse buy while on sale. turned out to be so good and useful for me, regret not ordering another.

EVGA 02G-P4-3751-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Awesome mid-range video card.
Small enough to fit in cases designed for mATX
runs relatively cool under load
way lower power consumption vs AMD card.

Cons: Expensive (Nvidia premium price)
poor thermal compound. I've seen way worse, but replaced it
sticker placed on soldered leads on underside of card (why does anyone do this? it can short card out)

Other Thoughts: 1st time build with Nvidia card. Impressed with the results. Being a GTX 750, was expecting way worse performance vs similarly powered (and cheaper) AMD cards.

Perfect card for budget gaming system

specs:

Intel G3258
MSI H97M-E35
8 GB 1600 RAM
Corsair CX430 PSU
Geforce GTX 750 Ti

Nyko Intercooler Xbox One
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs must buy IMHO 08/27/2015

This review is from: Nyko Intercooler Xbox One

Pros: super easy to install
facilitates the system fan to blow out hot air; huge difference in how hot the system gets
forward facing vent shoots air out away from the system thwarting design flaw if system is put in an enclosed space (system blows hot air straight up and will suck it back in the sides if the space above system isn't open)
makes xbone look fancy
runs quiet

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Recently got an Xbone. Shocked to discover how hot the system gets when playing games. After having 3 360's die on me from poor heat management (and hearing about Ones having heat issues too), I want my One to be bullet proof to losing it to something as lame and preventable as getting too hot

Without intercooler, system gets uncomfortably hot to the touch. With intercooler, system slightly warms up.

Problem with the Xbox One is it blows hot air straight up and sucks in fresh air through the sides. If placed on a small enclosed shelf on an entertainment center, system will suck the hot air back in and overheat. The Nyko will blow it out and away so this doesn't happen.

Intercooler often continues to blow after system is turned off. I don't know how anyone could complain about the noise unless your ear is right next to it. Quiet.

And yes, I'm paranoid and distrustful enough of Microsoft's manufacturing process to have taken my brand new system apart to replace the thermal compound. Sure enough, the Xbox one's thermal compound is both super cheap junk and not applied properly (too much of it)
