This review is from: Illusionz Magic Rope Floating Wine Bottle Holder Rack
Pros: It holds bottles ok, no problem there.
Cons: It's a metal bar wrapped in canvas that resembles rope texture. The canvas is a bright white/silver. I could not tell this from the NewEgg picture.
As a personal preference, I would have liked no canvas, and instead to have the rope design directly chiseled on the metal bar. Do that, and add an 'aged' tint to the metal and this would have been perfect. For me.
So, take my review as additional information about the look and feel of the holder, and make your own opinion about what looks good to you.
This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes
Pros: This has to be the best product of the year!!! Consider it's half the price of its competitors and it leaves them all in the dust when it comes to cooling the cpu.
My i7 920 stays at 28-34 depending on how hot it is outside and under heavy load it peaks at 45-47. This is my first intel build that idled under 30C. This cooler is simply amazing!
Other Thoughts: It's quiet and it does its job extremely well.
Check your case clearance as it is fairly tall. Mine fits well in a NXZT LEX A LEXS.
If you spend more than $150 on a proc spend another 25-30 for this cooler, it is worth it.
I've paid more than triple for far less effective coolers.
Pros: Quiet. Lots of outlets. Software works well with win 7.
Cons: None really
Other Thoughts: Connected the pc, the nas, modem and router to the backup outlets. On full charge it reports that it can survive 80 minutes (this is an i7 920 with an ati 577X).
I installed the app on the pc and told it to shut it off if it's on batteries for more than 5 minutes.
Not a con for the UPS, but I would have liked it to have more than one USB plugs. This way it could shut down the nas as well. Not a biggie though. With the PC off in minutes the chances are the nas will not use up the battery before the power's back.
