This review is from: Veon Series Executive High-Back Leather Chair, W/ Coil Spring Cushioni
Pros: Very comfortable, leather has a nice smell, and good feel. arm rests have a heavy padding. easy to assemble (see Other Thoughts)
It has 3 tool-less adjustment areas:
2) pitch forward/back
My posture has changed dramatically in a short time, and no fatigue from excessive hours sitting. a small pain i was having in my lower back has also disappeared :p
Cons: The high back is a bit lower than hoped for, but I really didn't want to spec a chair. I am 6'2" and the back would be perfect if it was just a couple inches taller; really not a biggie. the size difference is also felt in the seat, where another inch would be great for the legs, but; no big deal there really.
Other Thoughts: assembly was a bit of a hassle following the directions. but it was much easier to connect the 2 screws to the seat of one side, and 2 screws to the high back, on the same side. (so attaching the left arm-rest to both the back and seat of chair)
Then attach the other arm-rest in the same manner (remember to leave the screws somewhat loose til all 8 screws are in place)
When finished assembling the "seat" portion of 2 arm-rests, the seat, and the back, simply place the chair on the stalk, and finish tightening the 8 screws.
This review is from: NZXT CB-LED20-BU Sleeved LED Kit - Blue, 2 m
Pros: Reminds me of a quote from a mens hair club commercial:
"80% of feeling good, is looking good."
Cons: The backplate is gaudy, but very nice for most peeps I'm sure.
Other Thoughts: I didn't use the backplate. Always best to leave as much open air in a case as possible, for airflow, and future development so I found my inner Martha Stewart (did he just say Martha Stewart on Newegg?!) and got to work...
Very easy to unscrew the chipset from the slot adapter. I wrapped some of the chip in electrical tape, then tucked it away behind the hard drives. With some quick artistry of measured cardboard, and some silencing foam to keep it looking elegant, I simply slip out a hard drive to access the controls.
This review is from: AMD FX-6350 Vishera 6-Core 3.9GHz Socket AM3+ 125W Desktop Processor FD6350FRHKBOX
Pros: Vcore @ 1.338, Overclocked to 4.4 Mhz (4.8 turbo) on air, Evo 212 hyper, arctic 5, CM jetflo fans push/pull.
Idles between 10*-15*c
For apps I'm currently using, I have only seen it max @ 45*
under extreme burns, its stable @ 51*
This CPU is matching/exceeding intel chips of up to twice it's price... granted, Intel makes the chips that AMD can't atm, but you would need to spend around $350 to slip into a better Intel chip....so unless you really need that.
AMD makes it, so you don't have to!
Cons: Not a Con, just Con Thoughts:
Peeps are saying many negative things about the heatsink that's included. Honestly, the heatsink is beefy, much larger and more sturdy than the 6300 sink. made by Coolermaster too, so you know its Decent!
So you could spend $50+ on an aftermarket sink; OR, get a fan adapter (60mm to 80mm), an 80mm noctua fan (known for awesome silence) and some good thermal grease for around $30, with a much smaller footprint than any aftermarket sink... just sayin... It's a nice stock sink, I have it sitting on my desk as eye candy atm. I often think of cutting it down, and using it on the SB or GPU.
1) AMD won't cover overheated CPUs
2) AMD won't cover the use of aftermarket heat sinks
(But how would they know unless you tell them)
Other Thoughts: This CPU can handle ANY GPU currently available, so this won't be your bottleneck for a while.READ FULL REVIEW
