This review is from: NZXT Sentry-2 5.25" Touch Screen Fan Controller
Pros: Easy setup and install, plus it looks cool and does exactly what it's supposed to do. Along with the touchscreen, it has great features such as individual temp monitoring, fan speed, and auto/manual control for each of the 5 fans you connect it to.
Cons: NONE! Don't t second guess yourself.
Other Thoughts: Works like a charm and looks cool to boot.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H80i High Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 120mm
Pros: Significantly dropped temps compared to my after market cooler by about 5-10 degrees celsius and keeps them there. Closed loop... no filling, no maintenance, easy setup and the Link software is great, once everything is configured properly.
Cons: If you're looking for a "quiet" alternative cooling solution to your stock or aftermarket cooler... consider replacing the stock fans that come with the H80i, as they make a considerable amount of noise when running under load. Not horrendously loud, but very noticeable. Not really and issue for me, but it may be for some.
Other Thoughts: There seems to be an issue with the firmware that Corsair is familiar with. Giving this 5 stars wasn't easy... at least it would be considerably lower if newegg didn't have the return policies they do. After roughly a week from install, I booted up my machine, as I do every morning for the workday. I Immediately noticed something was wrong as the colors for the Corsair logo were stuck on a putrid green and would not change, nor did it pick up any of the motherboard temps. Sent it back and waiting for a replacement as I type.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Intel Centrino 2200BNHMW IEEE 802.11n Mini PCI Express - Wi-Fi Adapter
Pros: Affordable replacement for most laptops. Great speeds and excellent connectivity.
Cons: Wasn't free!
Other Thoughts: Bought this for a friend of mine to replace his non functional Atheros card in an Asus laptop that he purchased at Staples. Despite the fact that he paid for the extended coverage, they wouldn't warranty it for him because it worked perfectly fine otherwise. Suck it Staples!!!READ FULL REVIEW
