This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9900MAX-B 135mm Long life bearing CPU Cooler Blue LED
Pros: This cooler was a breeze to install on the x79 platform. Comes with a back plate pre-installed. I watched some video reviews and in those the fan sounded loud. After installing mine and booting up my system I was pleasantly surprised with how quiet the fan sounded.
-Can install high profile memory with this cooler.
-Not as heavy as some of the other coolers on the market meaning less strain on the motherboard :).
-Comes with the tools needed to install it.
-Comes with awesome thermal compound.
Other Thoughts: I would recommend going with a bigger cooler if installing an extreme edition CPU or if you are planning to heavily overclock. Installed this with a Core i7 3820.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: 1ST PC CORP. CB-8M-8F 12" 8-pin EPS extension cable
Pros: Before buying this I was reading the reviews and some of them talked about poor sleeve cover. I was starting to lean towards buying a non sleeved version to save a few dollars. In the end I decided to buy this one and am very happy I did. I was very happy with the quality of the sleeve cover on mine and the cable works as it is supposed to.
Other Thoughts: Works well.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works great. Excellent picture quality. Nuff said.
Cons: -I had an issue where one half of the monitor became slightly darker than the other half (literally split right down the middle). Unplugging the monitor and allowing the capacitors to drain resolved the issue.
-Speakers are garbage. Don't buy this monitor thinking that you don't need to purchase stand alone speakers. Taking an egg off for this.
-For this price I would expect the monitor to support display port.
Other Thoughts: This monitor turns on and off automatically when the computer is started or shutdown. Most of the time this means that the start up screen is not displayed. Not really an issue but it can be an inconvenience at times.READ FULL REVIEW
