This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes
Pros: Cheap heatsink for the performance. Installation was easy enough (hooray for the cpu cutaway in my case). Temps never got above 58c when running Prime95 (temps hit 80 very quickly on the stock cooler)
Cons: Only comes with 1 fan, though adding a second fan is pretty inexpensive.
Other Thoughts: Didn't actually get this through newegg, it was given to me by a friend who's case was too small to accomodate a skyscraper-style cooler (food for thought when you purchase your next case). However this is going to be my wife's computer when I build a new one in a couple of months, so I may purchase another for myself.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very nice picture. Upgraded from an old Dell 19" CRT monitor and wow... what a difference! Easy to install, comes with software to make any necessary adjustments.
Cons: Touch buttons take some getting used to... but everything configured ok so I haven't had to use them often. They can be hard to see in a dark room.
Other Thoughts: Was a good deal at the time, there was a $25 promo code on top of the $20 discount already offered. Admittedly I would not have gone with this monitor if the promo was not available, not with better ASUS models available at comparable prices.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Massive. Tons of room for expansion. Lots of air flow (they don't call it HAF for nothing) and quiet. LED's. Mobo cutaway to allow for easy heatsink replacement.
Cons: Toolless hard drive cage gave us some trouble. Front USB ports appear to be upside down, but so long as they work that's fine. Rather heavy for frequent transport.READ FULL REVIEW
