Pros: Cheap router. Hasn't done any random resets and small.
Cons: Possible range limitations
Other Thoughts: Bought this when Newegg had a sale on this router. Works very well for my friends 1 bedroom apartment. He wanted something cheap and that would work. Well this met his price point and quality.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Haier HWF05XCK 5,000 Cooling Capacity (BTU) Window Air Conditioner
Pros: Cools a 10x15 room pretty well. Not super fast but reasonable time (I'd say about 30mins to bring it around low 70's).
Cheap was around 85 when I bought it on sale. Good price for this hot summer
Cons: The rear of this unit does not have drain holes. I know they say don't drill any holes however, if you live in a very humid area then you may just want to make a very small hole in the back to allow the water to drain. Or tilt it a little more then recommended (would not advise doing this unless you are very good at it). So you will start to get water buildup quick on a humid hot day.
The fan rattles when it starts up but goes away once it reaches its maximum rpm and starts to cool.
Other Thoughts: The fan is noisy but not bad. You can definitely have a conversation with someone else without it bothering too much.
The unit started to get some excessive water inside so the fan started to make the water hitting the fan noise. However, once I tilted it more back the problem has been resolved.
Overall this is a good cheap unit to cool a small room or so. However, do not buy this unit if you want to set the fan speed to low and not be able to hear it. THIS WILL NOT DO THAT!
If you are looking for a A/C that will cool and not cost a whole lot. Then this is it. Since I only bought this for the guest room. I can handle the heat but my guests cannot.
This review is from: Antec KUHLER H2O 920 Liquid Cooling System
Pros: Bought this for a Ivy bridge machine build. Keeps the temps around 30C under idle and under full load the max temps hit are 60c on stock settings.
Large radiator, USB control software works very well. The cables for the fan and USB header are quality made and don't seem very brittle or easily breakable (a good thing since you want to tug them in the back).
Cons: Pain to install. If you are building a PC by yourself have someone help you since it makes things easier and will make you not want to rip your hair out.
When installing the radiator you need screws that go through the back of your case through the first 120MM fan and to the radiator. The screws were not long enough to go through both my case (Lian Li PC-7FN) and to the radiator. So I had to do some manual hunting for screws to make this thing hook up securely.
Other Thoughts: The fans are very noisy at default settings but that is understandable since that setting only kicks in when you don't have the USB header plugged in.
The way I got my software to work is by not installing the USB header until I had my Windows 7 installed and got the Antec software installed. After that I turned of the machine and unplugged it. Took the USB header and plugged it on one of the spare USB 2.0 connections on the motherboard. Started up the computer and the software located the unit and I was able to change fan speed and make some other minor changes without a problem.
