This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes
Pros: BIG, quiet and gets the job done! Did I mention its BIG? And quiet? Very well packaged, includes a small tube of silver thermal paste. I used it with no problems.
Cons: BIG, can interfere with mobo components (RAM etc.) depending on how your mobo is laid out. So, check your dimensions carefully before you buy. My AsRock Z68 has ram slots close to the CPU, so taller RAM heatsinks won't work well.
Other Thoughts: Do't spend too much time reading lts of reviews. Just get one.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This RAM was recognized easily and timings were detected perfectly by my AsRock Z68 mb. The heat spreaders are nice and hefty. They are also packaged very well.
Cons: Really the only complaint I have is these are TALL and if you have a good size cooler you may not be able to fit 4 of these in the mobo slots (depending on your mobo). So look carefully at the slot placement for these before you buy. If its tight you might want to get the same Corsair ram with the lower profile heatsinks here @ Newegg.
Other Thoughts: Good stuff - worked "out of the box"!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: iHome Rechargeable Portable Stereo System for iPhone/iPod IP46BV
Pros: not huge
good battery life
pop-out dock and slide away stands are nice
SRS sound is good
Battery indicator is helpful
Charges your iPod too
Cons: SRS off sounds weak
Remote is smallish and thin
Other Thoughts: I wanted a decent sounding small dock but didn't want to pay big bucks for a Bose or other more expensive unit. This definitely fits the bill. The SRS sound is the best, I don't think I'll ever listen to it with that turned off. There's almost no point to listening to it without SRS on, as the speakers just don't have the 'oomph'. On a side note, this unit has a line in jack so you can use it for laptop presentations or as an external speaker for your laptop.READ FULL REVIEW
