This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes
Pros: This is a BIG MOTHER of a cooler, much quieter, much more consistent cooling, included mounting hardware seems to be good and sturdy, works great with a Phenom II 1090T
Cons: I can definitely see how it would interfere with RAM slots on some motherboards. I had to switch the fan to the other side for it to work.
Other Thoughts: I put this in my wife's Phenom II system, which is not in an air-conditioned room. The stock cooler used to absolutely scream for dear life on hot days, even with regular cleaning of the heat sink. Things are cool and quiet now.
Depending on your case configuration, you might have to completely pull your motherboard out. I ended up having to. Trust me, with the size of it, it's worth it. No regrets here!
Pros: Fast, cheap, silent, barely sips away power, painless installation, awesome for a laptop, gives you an adapter to match OEM HD thickness if needed
Cons: It is sort of odd to hear my laptop completely silent when the CPU fan slows down below a certain level
Other Thoughts: Only before/after benchmarking I did was WEI. Primary hard disk performance went from 4.7 to 7.1. Battery life increased by at least 30 minutes.

This review is from: Transcend JetFlash 600 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model TS16GJF600
Pros: Bought this specific drive after searching for the fastest 16GB USB 2.0 stick. It works great, and it's WAY cheaper than some other 16GB drives that only perform marginally better.
Cons: No cap storage, but I don't have a chance to lose the cap because it's so fast.
Other Thoughts: Excellent value for the speed and space!READ FULL REVIEW
