Corsair Air Series SP120 High Performance Edition 120mm High Static Pressure Twin Pack Fan (CO-9050008-WW)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs They arent too bad for cooling through a radiator 11/22/2014

This review is from: Corsair Air Series SP120 High Performance Edition 120mm High Static Pressure Twin Pack Fan (CO-9050008-WW)

Pros: A pair of these keep my i100 with an 8350 running at about 32 degrees celsius at stock speed, when over clocked to 4.5ghz at idle its about 38 degrees. They run nice and quiet too. under load with the fans turned up to max my overclock is only at 52 celsius. obviously i have room to push my oc further but i like stable and i want my processor to last so i only run my overclock profile when im gaming and recording

Cons: uhhhh one of them started making noise about 2 months ago. it sounds like a bad hard drive struggling to move data. kind of annoying like the old ibm drives. if i open the case and touch the fan for a second it stops making noise for a few minutes then starts up again probably just a bad bearing or something that happens often which is why i deducted only one egg. fans are a moving part and moving parts tend to wear out sometimes. its only a few dollars to replace it, so thats cool with me

Other Thoughts: Honestly i have all corsair AS and SP fans in my system and only one of them is actin up. my case is nice and cool and its not perfectly quiet but with a game or movie at a normal volume you can just barely hear it and thats only if your paying attention to it. i could turn them down more if i wanted to but i think i found a nice balance between performance and quiet using the i100 software

ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I bought this to replace an older Asus td evo board for my kids Phenom II black edition becuase after 3 years the north most pci-e lane died out and the usbs would turn of and back on anytime you bumped the desk. He got a bunch of other new parts including a psu and case and all new fans so it was about a 4 hour install with decent wire management and getting everything perfect to my standards. When i turned it on it fired right up, drivers installed without a hitch and suprisingly his frame rates in CS:Go stabled out some, before on the old pc the fps would bounce between 35 and 60 fps now its between 59 and 60 all the time. he loves it, his boot times feel faster too. The UEFI is easy to use as well i went in clicked the performance mode then switched to advanced mode and checked that the timings were okay for his ram and left everything else at default and it runs so nice for an older pc I'm sure i could fine tune it later and make it even better.

Cons: havent heard any complaints

Other Thoughts: Im Asus for life. so i always try to go with the best Asus item i can afford at the time. I always see people complaining about thier products but after 10+ years of only using Asus items when i can do so ive only had one bad experience with them. thats not enough to turn me off. This is the best Asus board you can buy for Am3+/FX socket that isnt ROG.

Crucial M500 CT240M500SSD1 2.5

5 out of 5 eggs not bad for a games drive. 07/28/2014

This review is from: Crucial M500 CT240M500SSD1 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I purchased this with a wd black to replace a raid i had that was on its way out. after the ungodly long amount of time it took to transfer 2.5 tb of data to my new drives i noticed that this drive helped the micro stutter i was noticing with my old raid drives. games play a lot smoother now and even though this isnt being used as an OS drive everything feels a lot snappier now that its in AHCI mode as opposed to raid (i blame that on the 2 dead drives)

Cons: none whatsoever. i cant even find anything to be picky about

Other Thoughts: the packaging was decent, it goes along with my 60gb crucial M4 OS drive and all is well with my system. couldn't be happier for $179. this was a great purchase.
