Pros: I needed to bring my temps down and wanted some paste that I could use for any de-lid job I may come across, so I bought 5 of these when they went on sale. This is some good stuff for that since it's non-conductive.
Cons: Price, when not on sale.
Other Thoughts: The stuff that comes with your heatsink doesn't perform worse enough to buy fancy stuff, only by a delta of a few degrees (2-5 at most). Just apply your stuff the way it's recommended for your chip (I use the pea method).READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: NZXT Sentry-2 5.25" Touch Screen Fan Controller
Pros: I had an old DVD drive in my system that was unsightly and loud, so I wanted to fix both problems. When idling, I turn down some of my fans and I do so in style. The led screen fits my color scheme, blue, and I'm very please with it.
Cons: None at all!
Other Thoughts: The cabling is "meh..." The temp sensors are ugly and odd to get a hold of, but that's what you get if you want accurate temps. Just keep some zip ties around to tidy them up.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Corsair Vengeance 1500 USB Connector Circumaural Dolby 7.1 Gaming Headset
Pros: What I like about this headset is how comfortable it is for long periods of time (4-8 hours, maybe longer if that's how you play. The sound quality and ability to hear directional audio is awesome too. With a bit of EQ tweeking, music and movies can sound pretty good too. The mic is of good quality if you don't want to spend extra cash on a dedicated mic for recording more professional podcasts or videos for Youtube.
Cons: The build quality is not worth $100. I had to RMA the first pair because it was broken before I opened the box. The right ear cup was nearly detached from the band. The way the ear cups fold is pretty awkward as well. With the mic positioned on the left earcup, you won't be able to comfortable rest the headset around your neck with the cups facing down, as they turn outwards. It doesn't bother me too much, as I just rest them on the arm of my chair, one earcup on either side.
Other Thoughts: The cable is fairly manageable, but I have my doubts it will last more than a couple years. Overall I highly recommend you buy this headset if and only if it is on sale. If you're going to spend $100 on a headset, consider something of better quality like the 2100's or a pair of Astros.READ FULL REVIEW
