Thermaltake CL-P0257 Blue orb II CPU Cooler for LGA775 & K8
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I've had this "weapon" since it came out, put in a couple of computers, but 2 years ago i had to put it away cus my new computer could take it. well now i have a newer computer, which ive had for about 3 days now. was sitting here earlier today and remember this thing in the garage, so i did some research and found that AM2 and AM3 and AM3+ bracketing is the same, so i decided to pull it out and give it a go... im running the AMD-FX6100 with this beast cooling it, my temps dropped from 40c to 13c with this blue orb 2, thats STAGGERING, granted im not overclocking or anything right now, but im amazed by this thing, its old and it can handle this 6 core with EASE

Cons: no cons yet, cooling a 6 core with ease and the blue goes with the inside of the case

Other Thoughts: Gigabyte 970a motherboard
AMD am3 FX-6100 processor
12gigs of ram
1 terabyte of drive space
temps at 13 degrees Celcius with this beast in there

Asus VE228H 21.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: my first real monitor buy, i never saw the point of getting a new one since my old one worked... well it popped finally, so here it is, i absolutely love this thing, 1080p is amazing, hdmi for my xbox 360 and dvi for my computer, such an awsome monitor, perfect size for my room too, call of duty works perfecting on it, and watching movies is very good.

Cons: the ONLY con i have is that when i turn off my xbox 360 i have to wait 5 seconds to switch to my dvi... not too bad, but when im in a hurry to look something up, i can have my browser open and loading a page within 5 seconds.. DEFINATLY not bad enough to dock an egg, this monitor is 100% worth every penny

Other Thoughts: ... dont peel the void warranty sticker off when taking off the plastic covering, i was sitting here taking it off casually, didnt realize i peeled my void warning sticker... its on the bottom left side, just saying, pay attention, lol

Asus VE228H 21.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: havent tried the HDMI yet, but so far, this is the greatest monitor ive ever seen, hands down, picture perfect, "havent tried the speakers yet" but i bought it with knowing that they wouldnt be good, so no reason to try them, im astounded how well this screen looks, running 1080p from my desktop and it looks amazing

Cons: i really cant think of anything, except if you buy this, when your taking off the plastic wrap around the screen, there isnt a bottom one, make SURE you look, >.< i accidentally tore off the "void warranty if tampered" sticker >.<, i made sure everything worked on the screen first, other than me not paying attention, love this screen

Other Thoughts: came from a 17" ViewSonic that ive had for years, dont get me wrong, it still works fine but i wanted a bigger screen, and do to the size of my room, i found that 21" to 23" would be perfect. i was shooting for a 23" but i decided on this 21.5 because of 1 the HDMI for my xbox 360, 2 it supported DVI and VGA, which is just nice to have options, and 3 i was really counting on perfect picture, kinda of a leap of faith on my part since i dont really buy stuff like THIS online, "do only to dead pixels and what not" but this thing is PERFECT, controls on it are easy and everything...
