AeroCool V12XT Controller, Panel
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Eye candy only 04/28/2015

This review is from: AeroCool V12XT Controller, Panel

Pros: Looks amazing after I cut out and put it in a section of the clear display window. Very bright & colorful

Cons: Actual fan controller is a piece and worse than Hong Kong knockoff, but display is better than knock off

Other Thoughts: Not as big as you think when looking at ad, basically a small fan controller plus pretty colors. Not worth the price at all. I've got a different one I paid $20 on the bay from Hong Kong that looks as cool and does all the same

SanDisk Ultra II 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: The pros are simple-
1) Boots up laptop in 11 seconds compared to 36 seconds with 7200rpm HDD,
2) truly reads at almost 550mb and writes at 500mb. This was after running 4 tests with 4 different types of software.
3) 240GB for $100? ($10 coupon special on TDIRECT) I had to do a double take. Drives with this size and these specs usually are twice as much.
4) compared to the other person who left a review above me, I am having no problems at all and my drives all read 99%. Hopefully he knew to turn off SuperFetch, Windows Search, Hibernation, make sure his TRIM is on, turn your power settings to high and do all the other OS tweaks needed to run your SSD correctly. All it would take it to run or have your OS run disk defragmenter or defraggler once to make you lose a bunch of life on the drive.

Cons: The only cons I can give are similar to what another person wrote. Sandisk SSD's don't come with a 3.5" desktop slot caddy which means no SATA or power adapters to easily hook up to your desktop. But I can't lower the rating for that because out of the 12 different solid state drive manufacturers I've bought drives from, only about 4 include ALL that stuff. I mean Samsung includes the best DATA MIGRATION program with there SSD's so cloning your old hard drive to that Samsung is the easiest SSD to set up. None of the other companies drives come with anything like that for normal price except maybe Intel. But even Intel's software for that doesn't work as easy.

Other Thoughts: Basically I would tell everyone you know who complains about there slow computer to buy one of these and change their life! Dropping one of these into any desktop running a regular mechanical hard drive will increase the speed 10 fold instantly! Even if you have a desktop or laptop with only like 2GB of ram, adding this drive will make you forget about needing anymore ram. I mean I'm not a salesperson for Sandisk or anything. My Samsung 840 Evo's are better SSD's because they came with the data migration software which was basically click and send and your entire old hard drive is now ready to use on your new Samsung ssd and they have a way better warranty. I am just surprised at the price drop and thought for sure when I checked the speeds of the Sandisk it was going to give me 250mb's read and write speeds but that wasn't the case. It actually lived up to spec which I think is cool for a cheaper ssd.

GIGABYTE GV-N660WF2-2GD REV2 G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 660 2GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready WindForce 2X Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This card has worked perfect. Like everyone else, I like how it maxes out the WEI score. The dual fans keep it very cool and I haven't been able to get it over 110'F, but that's with 9 120mm fans blowing around the inside of my case to! lol. It looks awesome with my UD5H board and I got it for a buck fifty on black Friday 2013. Figured by now it would have gotten cheaper but it's still the same price and that's with a mail in rebate.

Cons: My cons aren't really cons, but advice I would give to others who are interested in a one or two card setup. Read other thoughts..........

Other Thoughts: The first thing I do whenever getting a new video card is tear it apart (have built over 100 gaming comps) and check things out. I clean the thermal paste off and replace it with MX4. When I put it back together especially re-attaching the cooling fans to the card I use simple rubber O rings that can be bought at Home Depot for under 4 bucks. I buy a total of 16, one for each side of the holder making it completely separate and away from the actual card. This will make sure you get NO vibration noise from your fans. Even after many years of use. Another good thing I use and encourage others to use is the 120mm fan dust filters Newegg sells. I have them on all my intake fans and this keeps the inside of my case totally new looking. So after watching some videos and reading a lot I think I'm going to add a 2nd 660 to my setup because from what I've found out, the $300 I'll have spent on these two cards, $100 on water cooling blocks for the GPU chips brings me to $400. Two of these cards with chrome water cooling blocks for $400 will outrun almost any video card that is in the $500-$700 range and it's proven all over the net with tests. 160 frames per second is the average SLI running speed with skyrim all maxed out. That's pretty big. You figure that how cheap the cost and all the stuff I could do with all those video outputs I believe it's a much better idea to go this route. I would like to hear from the other guy who wrote that he has the same board as me but has 2 660's running in SLI so I can ask him some questions. If you read this Keith send me an email.
