This review is from: SONY HT-CT60 2.1 Soundbar with Subwoofer
Pros: This is being used in my bedroom where all I have is a 55" Samsung LED, a PS4 and a PC. I didn't need or want a another large surround sound stereo for my bedroom (living room already has one).
Took a chance on this because of its low price but now after using it for 3 weeks, I'm really glad I purchased it. It has great sound, it literally sounds "amazing" when compared to my stock tv speakers (I'm using fiber optic). Its honestly loud enough to use for a "small" party. The bass is solid and clean, no distortion at all when maxing it out. I've pretty much already used this sound bar in every scenario, great for bumpin or playing music, awesome for watching movies and great for playing BF4 on my PS4. It really works well, I was even able to determine which way the other players were coming from (not like a gaming headset but still good).
Like I said, I took a chance on this because I assumed it would be affordable junk that sounded better than the tv. I guess my expectations were so low that it really surprised.
I'm the kind of person who doesn't like low end chinese electronics or knock offs. I've tried other sound bars so I have some experience with these and I have to say that this is honestly the BEST sound bar anyone could purchase at this awesome low price.
Cons: My bed room is kind of big and the remote only has a range of about 12 feet.
Fiber optics cable is too short.
This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9900MAX-R 135mm Long life bearing CPU Cooler Red LED
Pros: This thing is amazing. I was really impressed with its performance. My Phenom II 980BE was at 47c during idle. Once I installed this beast it then dropped down to 33c. I installed another one on an FX-8150 that already had a low temp of 18c during idle but this thing was still able to drop it own even lower to 11c.
Cons: The only issue I had was that it was tricky to get it installed. I had to bend the supplied brackets into shape so that it could be long enough to reach the mounting screws on the back plate. I then had to balance the heatsink right on top of the cpu just to get aligned. It was annoying but manageable. It claims it was for am3 and am3+ plus but the brackets that came with it weren't big enough. I've used other name brand heatsinks with no issues. This is why I rate it 4 out 5 eggs.
Other Thoughts: I purchased two of these. Installed one on an ASUS M5A97 with a Phenom II X4 980BE. Installed another one on an ASROCK Extreme 3 970 Pro with an FX-8150. Both boards didnt mount up with these Zalman CNPS9900MAX-R heatsinks until I bent the brackets into place.READ FULL REVIEW
