Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great cooler, mediocre fan 09/25/2015

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan

Pros: I own three of these coolers for my two main PC's and my HTPC (use it overclocked from time to time as a MAME machine).

They work far better than stock coolers and can be had for $20 after rebate or on sale.

My buddy with little tech knowledge was able to install one as well, so they're not overly difficult to install.

Cons: The fans are shoddy and die after a few years. Maybe it's just the way they're constructed that they have a short life but I replaced two so far with cougar fans.

The fans also cost $10 to replace (half the cost of brand new).

Cougar Turbine CF-T12S4 120mm Case Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs 2 years zero problems 09/25/2015

This review is from: Cougar Turbine CF-T12S4 120mm Case Fan

Pros: Have been running these fans for over 2 years with no issues, even replaced the fan on my hyper 212 with one of these after the hyper 212 fan died.

Shame they're not sold by newegg anymore, though you can look around and find them for $20 from time to time for a 4 pack.

Cons: They're orange? I mean that's the only thing you could possibly knock them for.

Corsair Force LX Series 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Stable, specs match the product page.

After running this ssd as my system drive on a htpc for about 7 months straight I just ran AS SSD Benchmark and got sequential 500.93mb read, 120.20mb write.

Cons: Not as fast as the 256gb force lx or the 128gb force gs.

Other Thoughts: I went with the force lx at the time due to cost savings. The force lx was on sale and was ~$20 cheaper than comparable drives.
