Pros: This gets the job done. I installed them on two Opteron 2384 CPUs. This fits socket 1207 with 3.5" hole pitch when the plastic cpu retaining brackets have been installed. In fact I had to modify g34 brackets for installation on socket F. I like the AMD retainer clip. It's not meant for tall coolers but this one is not to heavy. See con for one other.
Cons: Bottom of heat pipes were very rough. I prepped the bottom by spreading thermal grease on the bottom with a credit card filling in all the gaps and scratches then scraping off all the excess with the card. Not bad enough to take off an egg.
It took some time to center the cooler on the cpu using the AMD clip as the clip does not center the cooler.
Other Thoughts: I see where they cut corners to keep the price low. Size and build quality suffer compared to the 212 Evo but for stock speeds I bet you can't tell the difference in cooling ability. Would buy again but don't need to.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great case, good drive mounting options filter for 120 fan. All internal drive mounts can be removed to allow for large server boards if you don't mind missing standoffs. Overall quality was very high.
Cons: Not for large mother boards. Didn't see it when I ordered but it worked out.
Other Thoughts: No eggs off for my ignorance. Should give an extra egg for being able to accommodate it just means duct tape to hold on the ssd an no cd drive. Oh wellREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good value. decent screen at a decent price. 120 V AV input (not power brick hanging around) Speaks make noise not great sounding but they are there.
Cons: The vertical neck of the stand can NOT be removed from the display. I wanted to use VESA mounts but not now i have an ugly part of the stand still sticking down out if the bottom. Minus 1 egg for that. OSD control buttons feel very wiggly and cheap.
Other Thoughts: I don't think I like 16:9, This is sitting next to a 22" 1600x1050 LCD and it looks much smaller than the resolution/size difference would suggest. On sale these were a deal to good to pass up even with the cons.READ FULL REVIEW
