This review is from: SwissTech UKCSB-1 Utili-Key 6-in-1 KeyChain MultiTool
Pros: I wanted a keychain tool because I got stuck without a screwdriver one too many times, mostly. I got what I wanted, with two small drivers, a serrated blade, and a bottle opener all in one light package.
Cons: The tool can be a bit fiddly to get open, especially if you have greasy hands. It only opens up to 90 degrees, so the blade tool is a little undercut by the way you have to hold the tool.
Other Thoughts: The hinged release had me worried, but it turns out there's enough friction keeping the tool shut, so it doesn't open up when you don't want it to.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: For the price, this is a really powerful quad-core processor. I've never had an AMD processor to build into a PC before, and this one ha left a good impression.
Cons: The stock cooler is a joke. It's a 60mm fan that absolutely screams, but doesn't even cool the CPU very well. It woke up roomates, it made my ears ring, it was replaced by an Arctic Freezer 7.2, and it was thrown away.
Other Thoughts: This was a low budget upgrade, so I had to make sure I spent as little as I could on the CPU, and still get a motherboard and GPU. It all worked out really well in the end and I am not afraid to buy AMD next timeREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Scythe S-FLEX SFF21F 120mm Case Fan
Pros: high air flow
Cons: Way too noisy for me. There's a noticeable whine coming from the fan that reminded me of a hair dryer.
Other Thoughts: I couldn't stand the sound (although I am psychotic about fan silence). Currently sitting in my garage, being used as a fan-hole templateREAD FULL REVIEW
