Cooler Master Nepton 120XL - CPU Water Cooling System, All-In-One Kit with 120mm Radiator and 2 Silencio Fans
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: After adjusting fan speed with Speedfan, this cooler is extremely quiet, yet effective in keeping the CPU cool.

Cons: None as yet. I've read horror stories about some coolers (not these) leaking, so I am keeping a watchful eye out.

Other Thoughts: After my air-cooler drowned out my phone conversations, and my son's stock water cooler interfered with gameplay because of its loudness, I was on the lookout for a quiet solution for both of us. After reading many specs, I realized many water coolers weren't actually quiet as I had anticipated would be the case. After I installed this unit, at first I thought, "well, this isn't much quieter than my kid's previous water cooler". But then, I used Speedfan to adjust the speed to 75% (all that was needed to keep the CPU reasonably cool), it's virtually silent. The pump does clatter a bit, much like a hard drive, but no louder. A huge improvement.

SeaSonic SS-400ET Bronze 400W ATX12V V2.2/EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Good power supply for moderate needs (say, a PC for business applications). Very reasonable price for the capability. I was able to straighten up a client's PC performance (random crashes) by replacing the power supply with the SS-400ET.

Cons: Based on the first success, I ordered a second one, this time for a new build. When I had it all together, it wouldn't boot. First things first - I had to assure power was getting to the motherboard. Tested the Seasonic with a power supply tester - dead! I was unbelieving, but there it was. Newegg was excellent about RMAing a replacement.

Other Thoughts: My first experience with a DOA of any kind. Makes me wonder about the state of QA in the industry. I'll continue with Seasonic because most of my experiences have been good, however.

Thermaltake Commander G42 Black ATX Mid Tower Gaming Computer Case (CA-1B5-00M1WN-00)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I had been buying a different brand case, which turned out not to be available, so I gave the Thermaltake G-42 a try. I'm glad I did. The build quality is excellent. Case is sturdy, and the doors fit well and are easy to remove and replace. The wiring is good quality, with shrink-wrapped bundles. USB 3.0 connector from the front fit right onto the motherboard header. Plenty of room for future expansion - can hold lots of components such as hard drives.

Cons: Not a con really - I didn't care for the case cover screws. Just a bit difficult to deal with, but they do their job.

Other Thoughts: Glad I ran into this one. It may replace my previous standard for economy cases.
