This review is from: Philips SHL3300 DJ Over-Ear Headphones - Black
Pros: + It does not overdrive the bass, which is an improvement over some current designs.
+ sturdier cord
+ great for one hand to the ear listening
Cons: - sweat generating earcup material
- too tight when worn over both ears - and plastic won't tolerate any stretching
Other Thoughts: Not recommendedREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Couldn't give it a zero star
Cons: After only 8 months, the pump died. The blue LED is no use.
Temps went from 35 C to 72 C and system crash.
The bad part is getting customer support. If you try to call the 1888 number you get a voice bot telling you their official office hours. Great. How about someone answering the phones?
I repeatedly called during official hours - for four hours.
Their website also has no other way to access customer support.
So here I am, with a dead cooler and no customer support.
This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper T4 - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes
Pros:  Easy to install for AMD socket. No need to remove backplate.
 Fits in tight places... at least in my budget midtower case, it just cleared the side panel.
 Excellent cooling, without the HSF whine.
Cons: * None so far
Other Thoughts: Running an AMD A8-5600K APU. (100 W TDP)
=> Stock cooler whined and CPU hit over 58C (Smartfan) under full load.
=> T4 : idles 36C, and maxed out at 47C (Smartfan) under full load (100% CPU).
(Currently running a Home theater TV application, Google Chrome (22 tabs open), YouTube, various other windows, and CPU registers 41C)
Even though it may not have the highest cooling capacity of other models, it is far easier to install and the performance is satisfactory.
And it is a marked improvement over the stock HSF.
