This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan
Pros: - Keeps the bad temps down
- Just plain works
Despite some review say that screwing the heatsink bracket into the motherboard required REALLY HARD PRESSURE -- I did not experience any difficulty in getting the screws placed and tightened that required pressing down too hard on the screws. It was pretty simple.
Cons: - Somewhat difficult to install
- Heatsink can only be placed one direction
Make sure watch installation videos on Youtube. Very helpful tips there. AM3 motherboards have a different configuration, so make sure you use the right mounting screws and position the back plate correctly!
Take your time installing this! Study the videos and be prepared. If you are lucky, your case will allow you access to your mounting holes without having to remove the whole motherboard. I was not lucky in this case and had to take the motherboard completely out of the case to install the mounting bracket. Install time: 1 hr/15 minutes.
Other Thoughts: My AM3+ 3.4Ghz CPU was running way too hot with gaming (70c!!!) and the stock AMD fan just wasn't doing the job, so I did my homework and found this fan highly recommended. No eggs lost, but it would be nice if the heatsink could be placed to the side since my fan now blows either to the top of my mid-tower case or to the bottom (where my graphics card is placed). It can't be positioned to point towards the back of the case to push the hot air out. Still, it is keeping my CPU at a constant 38c on idle and never goes over 50c during intense gameplay. Worth every cent!!!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Klipsch Synergy S-10 Premium WDST Surround Speakers Pair
Pros: Klipsch brand! Great surround sound speakers!
Cons: Package arrived on my porch with big words on the box "KLIPSCH" - which translates to "High Performance Speakers! STEAL ME!". I thought Newegg would at least conceal the original box to prevent temptation of theft. Glad no one grabbed it before I got home!
Other Thoughts: Easy to set-up. Using banana plugs and quality speaker wire - these speakers will satisfy your music/movie loving needs!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I work in IT and have plenty of experience with harddrives. I could not pass these 4TB drives up at such a fantastic price. Using these for a xbmc home theater set-up.
Cons: Not the fastest in its class, but fine for watching movies.
Other Thoughts: Formatting was flawless. No errors. Files copied over perfectly.READ FULL REVIEW
