ARCTIC Freezer A11 CPU Cooler for AMD, 150W Cooling Capacity, 3 Direct Touch Heatpipes, <23dBA Fan Noise
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Great cooler. Bought it for my wifes computer which has an AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE. Stock fan was TERRIBLE! Loud at any speed and did not do an adequate job of keeping the CPU cool. This cooler keeps it around 32c at idle in the same case as apposed to 45-50c with stock cooler. Easy to install and is very quiet.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: To all of the people complaining that this cooler didn't come with the right hardware for your motherboard/CPU, read the description. AC makes different models for intel and AMD. A11 for AMD, i11 for intel. What gets me is the people who claim a tech level of 4 or 5, but don't know if they have intel or AMD. If your motherboard has four holes for push pins, you have an intel CPU and need the i11 model, this model ONLY works with AMD!

White Wireless Gaming Receiver for Microsoft XBOX 360 PC
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Does work with Win 8.1 01/04/2015

This review is from: White Wireless Gaming Receiver for Microsoft XBOX 360 PC

Pros: Works great with win 8.1 after figuring out how to activate it. I'll include step by step instructions in other thoughts section. Doesn't matter where you buy, or what brand you buy, the steps will be the same for win 7 or win 8.

Cons: None. Unless you count having to do a little research to make it work with win7 or win8.1. Google is your friend. Don't be afraid to use it before giving up and writing a bad review.

Other Thoughts: This is copy and paste from the review that helped me:

1) throw away the disc that comes with it, it's pointless
2) plug it into a usb port (I've tested on both windows 8 and 8.1 boxes, works on both)
3) go to the search (top right corner in windows 8/8.1)
4) type "device manager"
5) look for a device that's not recognized. When installing the driver, make sure you let windows find it, scroll to the bottom of the list, and choose the one for Xbox wireless adapter. (NOT charger)
6) if it doesn't work out of the box like that, then go to MS's site, download the driver and make sure when you go back to find it you scroll ALL THE WAY DOWN to the bottom, where the latest driver is, and use that. I couldn't find it at first because you need to scroll down when you install MS's, as there are 2 different drivers (and older one and a newer one - use the newer)

EVGA 04G-P4-2768-RX GeForce GTX 760 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support SC w/ EVGA ACX Cooler Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Card works great. Looks new. Installed with fresh drivers and is working perfectly. Plays all of my games at highest settings on a PCI express 2.0 board.

Cons: So why the "but"? Because two days after paying $260 for the refurbished model, the non-refurb dropped in price from $309 to $270. As I write this review, the non-refurb price is $255. and comes with a full 3 year warranty.

Other Thoughts: When the price of the non-refurb dropped, the price for this dropped as well, but it's only $10 cheaper than the non-refurb. $10 more for a full 3 year warranty? You decide.
