This review is from: BIOSTAR A880G+ AM3 AMD 880G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: NOTHING so far!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Cons: From the first day of installing it, its onboard audio or the HD audio channel never worked. All I got from it was very loudy hissing noise, which at that time I didn't really care for much because I was just happy with the fact that it ran and I was able to reroute the audio through my video card. Even then, the system has always rebooted right in the middle of running once in a while. Well, after 7 months of running, Biostar is now basically dieing. For the last 3 weeks now, the whole system is shutting down by itself and it won't come on and stay on. when I push the power button, it turns on but then it kills itself. I have tried to remove as many computer parts as I can and boot it. Still it turns on and off by itself. This leads me to one conclusion that the motherboard - biostar or the processor AMD is dieing. I really don't think it's the AMD processor dieing, because the last time my computer did the same thing but it started to after 2 weeks of being off. Biostar is a trash.
Other Thoughts: I won't buy Biostar Motherboard ever again.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ZALMAN FAN MATE 2 Fan Controller
Pros: Very light weight, comes with a long wires, has noob for adjusting fan speed, comes with a sticky pad to stick the controller on to any surface in or out of the computer case, Not flimsy at all but solid, has holes on three of its sides for venting heat if it ever gets hot, price can't be beat, etc.
Cons: ONE of the BIGGEST con for this fan speed controller is the fact that you MUST have just as many 3 pin connector as the number of case fan you have to connect on the motherboard. So, if you have 3 or even 4 fans to control, then you have to have 3 or 4 3 pin connector for them to connect to. if you don't have that many 3-pin connector then, you have to connect the fan controller to Power Supply Molex connector, but you will need spare 3-pin connector with molex connector. This was never mentioned anywhere in this product's description. I bought three and I am only able to connect 2 of my case fan to the fan controller and I got lucky I had a spare molex with 3 pin connector laying around that came with a 120mm fan I bought a week ago.
Other Thoughts: Two eggs off because lately, I have been noticing that newegg has been using USPS for their shipments along with UPS. I personally never ever send anything through USPS unless I have to, because they never ever deliver anything on time unless you spend a arm and a leg. Instead of 3 or 4 days I waited 7 days to get my order. Another reason for two egg off is my con. Read it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: MASSCOOL FD08025S1M4 80mm Case Cooling Fan
Pros: Cheap, Easy To install, Comes with Mallaux or three pin connector.
Cons: 1.) The holes are not notched for you to screw them easily. You sort of have to force the screw as you turn. You can break them if you are not careful.
2.)Very LOUD. Unless you are going to buy fan controller with this fan, don't buy it.
3.) I could careless for the Blue LEDs they have on this fan.
