SONY VAIO VPCSC41FM/S Notebook Intel Core i5 2540M (2.60GHz) 8GB Memory 750GB + 4GB SLC Hybrid4 HDD AMD Radeon HD 6470M 13.3
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Decent form-factor, reasonable price point for the performance/components - at $629 it's a pretty solid deal.

Cons: First unit was defective (N key worked about half the time). Had to exchange as an RMA.

Way too much bloatware.

I don't like how the keyboard lighting is set up. Too much bleed-through between the keys makes for a very funky looking keyboard.

The touch pad is activated when I'm just typing sometimes, pretty annoying. It also doesn't work in multi-touch scenarios, so sometimes if I have one finger or a part of my palm on the pad and try to use my other finger to move the pointer, it doesn't work.

Did I mention the massive amount of bloatware?

It also doesn't come with a windows install disc which is pretty annoying.

Other Thoughts: Frankly, I wish I'd gone with a different laptop.

3 out of 5 eggs Defective of part out of box, performance OK 04/15/2011

This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H60 (CWCH60) High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler

Pros: Easy install, cheap compared to other liquid cooling solutions.

Cons: One of the bolts for mounting it was threaded badly and was unusable. Apparently others had the same problem. My initial jury rig fix was a zip-tie. Now I am using a bolt from a hardware store as a replacement (which is a major upgrade from the zip-tie).

Still waiting on corsair to get back to me on sending me the replacement part.

The temperature performance is OK thus far... will likely get better once I use all OEM parts for mounting.

I am running a 2600k overclocked to 4.0GHz right now. Under load I am getting a max of 60c. ~30c idle.

Other Thoughts: 2600K

2 out of 5 eggs A bit dissapointed 04/15/2011

This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H60 (CWCH60) High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler

Pros: Relatively cheap liquid cooling system, all-in one unit

Cons: The quality seemed low. One of the mounting bolts wasn't threaded properly, couldn't screw it into the retention plate. Had to improvise with some jury rigging... going to request a replacement part from Corsair (wish me luck).

Other Thoughts: The temps I am seeing are not very impressive. This could be due to my semi-botched mounting which is currently missing one of the proper bolts and is zip-tied into place.

I am running a 2600k OC'ed to 4.0GHz. Using a single pull fan on the heat sink. Currently I am getting 40C at idle and around 80C under load, which isn't terrific by any means.
