Pros: I bought this drive to replace my dead IDE DVD/CD burner drives. They lasted me about 4 years from computer to computer. But I decided it was time to get a sata drive since my computer has support such for a few years. So far I am very pleased. Installation was a snap and the digital audio quality is amazing, I had no idea IDE vs SATA sound quality was such a broad leap!
Cons: None, didnt come with cables but it wasnt supposed so, and I already had several with my mobo anyways.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Bought this for additional memory while I waited for my replacement from Corsair on a stick that died after 2 years.
Cons: Arrived DOA, over 30K errors in memtest & BSOD on Windows XP SP2.
Other Thoughts: Arrived DOA, but RMA response within hours of request. Once received by Newegg, replacement was received in less than 24 hours from being shipped!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ARCTIC COOLING Accelero S2 VGA Cooler
Pros: This cooler lowered by Biostar 7600GT temps by about 10 degrees idle and by 15 degrees load. Before my idle was around 45-47. Now it maintains an average of 36. My load with stock was also about 65-67 and now with this cooler its 47. It dropped my idle by 10 and load by 20! That is awesome in my eyes for having no fans.
Cons: The only con I can think of is the sheer size. If you have a cheaper case it may not fit at all. Mine has a side fan and I could only get this cooler to work by removing the black plastic bezels. It looks 100% better without anyway.
Other Thoughts: My setup is combined with the use of Arctic Silver5 and five incoming case fans.
I did not have any problems thus far with the memory heatsinks falling off as I have read. I cleaned them with rubbing alchol and an eraser prior to applying. This works great as many have said regarding them falling off.
