ZALMAN F3 FDB 120mm Fluid Dynamic Bearing Case Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Worth the Investment 05/10/2012

This review is from: ZALMAN F3 FDB 120mm Fluid Dynamic Bearing Case Fan

Pros: 3-pin connector instead of molex, super quiet even without the resistor, good airflow, good value

Cons: If it was possible to do 1/2 eggs, they'd lose 1/2 for coming with these ridiculous silicone pins that are impossible to use and no screws provided as an alternate. Thankfully I was able to scavenge the ones off my old case fans

Other Thoughts: I bought 2 of these to replace Antec Tri-Cools that came with my P180 case (those failed with bearing noise). Will definitely buy 2 more of these when the other Tri-Cools fail.

Antec Performance One P180 Silver cold rolled steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

5 out of 5 eggs Best Case I've Ever Owned 05/08/2012

This review is from: Antec Performance One P180 Silver cold rolled steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: I've had this case since 2007 and still believe it's the best case I've ever owned. Operation is almost silent and the minimalist design (no ridiculous windows or blue LEDs) is perfect for those with taste. There is enough room for more hard drives than you will ever need.

Cons: - You will notice the weight of the steel, especially once all of your gear is inside.
- Cable management will require long PSU cables, especially for the 4/8 pin CPU power.
- Large video cards may run into the upper hard drive bay.

Other Thoughts: Original fans had bearing failure at about 3.5 years - replacement was easy since they are standard 120mm.

MSI GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) DirectX 11 N460GTX CYCLONE 1GD5/OC 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Upgraded to this from an 8800 card and the difference in performance is staggering. The 1G version was definitely worth the couple extra bucks.

Runs GTA IV on the maximum settings, even without an overclock. Have yet to find anything that makes it heat up either.

Cons: Eats quite a bit of power, so make sure you have at least a 450W PSU with minimum 31A on the +12v rails.

It would also be helpful for Newegg to list power consumption info on the specs pages for video cards so I would have known upfront I needed a better PSU and could have ordered them all at once.

Other Thoughts: It fits well in my Antec P180, but I wish the card was designed for ATX (heatsink on top), especially since it vents into the case air instead of out the back.
