This review is from: Noctua NH-D14 120mm & 140mm SSO CPU Cooler
Pros: This cooler is awesome. No matter how hard I try to tax it, my CPU has never gone past 65 degrees. Averages about 40 from normal use. Once I replaced the stock heatsink I noticed a massive decrease in noise. Now I can barely hear my machine. If it wasn't for the pc's LEDs, I'd have troubling telling if it was on. Thermal paste was included so I didn't have to go out and buy any. Installation was fairly simple and the instructions were pretty clear.
Cons: Size. No picture can convey the size of this thing very well. If you have a full tower, it shouldn't be a problem. But smaller cases should be measured to see if there is enough room.
Other Thoughts: Make sure this cooler is compatible with your specific motherboard/RAM setup. This was my first third party cooler purchase and installation, and I had no problems. I am very impressed with Noctua and will consider them very highly for my next build. It took me a while to finally decide to buy it, but now I'm completely satisfied and have zero regrets.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Guild Wars 2 PC Game
Pros: Delivery a day early. Very fun. A breath of fresh air from the farm fests of other MMO's. I love how anyone can jump in and take part in w/e is going on, and be rewarded. WvW and PvP are crazy fun. A great game for casual players. Hardcore players may gripe about the lack of raid content and abilities, but I find this to be a nice break away from the same thing over and over.
Cons: Queues can get long, servers filled up, people got banned for a fault on Arena Net's side while real exploitation went unpunished. Trading House was down for the first week.
Other Thoughts: This game is fun, but as with any large scale mmo launch it had its hiccups. Even now some quests are glitched. I wish they had handled certain situations differently. Once it gets smoothed out it will be a 5/5 game.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Most affordable 1TB hard drive at 7200 rpm. Have not had any write failures or bad sectors after two months. Used this to replace a very old 300gb hard drive that was starting to make an odd humming sound. Not that loud even when accessing the drive.
Cons: OEM but I always have spare cables.
Other Thoughts: Got it on sale when it was ~$20 off. Definitely worth it.READ FULL REVIEW
