This review is from: Antec Two Cool 140 140mm Case Fan
Pros: Quiet, mostly.
Cons: Worked fine for more than a year, but after 18 months it will only start up when switched to high, and it makes a loud rattle when switched to low. Clearly on the verge of death.
Other Thoughts: One of these came pre-installed for vertical (top) exhaust in my Antec Three Hundred Two case. I'm happy with the case, but I'll be replacing the fan with another brand.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Logitech M510 Wireless mouse - Black
Pros: Tracks well. Unifying receiver is compact and convenient, and works perfectly with my Logitech keyboard. I've had no issues with range or tracking whatsoever.
Cons: Small. It would be fine, but the "comfortable contoured shape" narrows it so much that it feels more like holding a tiny travel mouse than a full-sized office or gaming mouse. I have very average-sized hands, but using this I have a cramped claw instead of a relaxed grip.
After a week's use the grippy rubber on the sides is starting to feel kind of gross.
The middle button is VERY stiff, and relatively loud. The L and R buttons, on the other hand, put up so little resistance I find myself accidentally right-clicking a lot.
I'm extremely skeptical of their "up to 24 months battery" claim, but obviously it's too soon to tell. For whatever reason though, I'm down 30% after a week on the included Duracells.
Other Thoughts: Next time I'm definitely going back to my old "don't buy a mouse I haven't tried in a store" approach. Live and learn...READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan
The height of the fan can be adjusted a bit to clear your RAM.
Can be installed in any direction.
Temp doesn't get over 50°C in a 26°C (79°F) room, running Prime95 with stock clock. Fan makes a barely-noticeable whir at that level.
Retail packaging was good enough to protect it completely in a crushed shipping box.
Cons: Installation instructions were sufficient, but not great.
Had to put an alarming amount of pressure on my mobo to get the last couple of screws started.
Other Thoughts: Mobo - Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+
CPU - Phenom II X4 980 BE
Case - Antec Three Hundred Two
Total height from mobo to the tips of the heat pipes is 169mm. Bottom of cooler (RAM clearance) is about 45mm off mobo.
