Pros: The fans seem to be of nice quality; it has hardware to mount on most processors, comes with Y adapter for the fans power -- for the newbs, be sure to plug these into the cpu fan header so that the system can adjust the fan speed.
Most of all... It was really quiet....
Cons: ....when it worked as it should. The water pump bearings failed after less than 12 hours of use. If i were forced to be more accurate, I would say it was closer to 4 hours of actual powered on use.
Other Thoughts: I'm going to give a second one a chance, but since i have to re-install the oem brackets for standard air cooling, I'll run the replacement water system for a solid 24 to 48 hours before bothering to go through the annoyance of re-installing this thing plus, for a proper installation I need to cut some sheet metal to create an adapter plate as my case and this unit don't really agree on space requirements.dREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Ordered 2 -- they still "work"?
Cons: Wasted 2 days trying to get these to work in some manner that doesn't require destroying my RAID5 array in my desktop -- have them setup in a RAID0 array -- Windows Experience rating is a FIVE.ZERO -- 5.0 that's lower that the 3 year old 7200RPM Spindle Drives -- a 5.9
In laptop (Acer 5810TZ) SATA controller has to be set to IDE mode (in AHCI mode it won't install windows).
Required way too much work to even get "formatted" with trips to the command prompt and even a download/burn/boot up with gparted to ensure the partitioning and formatting.
Other Thoughts: OCZ is now in my no-buy zone when it comes to SSD from now on. Complete rubbish in my opinion.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Wireless b/g/n and bluetooth in one card.
Cons: This is not for the weak willed or those who easily give up. In my case the drivers on the disc did not work with the Bluetooth even after a clean windows install on another drive so I ended up finding other drivers that were based on some ASUS netbook (this is all based on Windows 7 32bit Home Premium); but the latest version of Ubuntu had no problems with neither WLAN or BT functionality -- I may end up moving to UBUNTU on this laptop if it doesn't fully settle down.
Other Thoughts: I was finally able (knock on wood it continues to work properly) to get it working on my current installation of Win7-32bit Home Premium -- for those having problems -- be sure you remove ALL EXISTING Bluetooth software and drivers, install the card, then install the new drivers.
If you are going to do a fresh install -- be sure to install the drivers before getting updates from MS.
I put this in an Acer Aspire 5810TZ 1.3Ghz Intel U2700 with 3GB ram
