Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Great sink 07/14/2013

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan

Pros: -Quiet
At low speeds this thing sounds like a flea breathing. When cranked up it's about as loud as a mouse farting on the far side of a room

Keeps the CPU temp down even when OCd for extended periods

Cons: BIG
Hesus Tapdancing Cristo this thing is tall! It will overshadow your motherboard like an imposing monolith as your graphics card and its inferior fans cower in fear

I have the Raidmax smilodon case and had to remove the fan that was on the plexiglass window and very slightly shave down a corner of the fan shroud that's on the GPU stabilizer bar to get it to fit.

It's obnoxious to install (you have to pull the entire mobo out of your case) and it doesn't sit perfect, it will slide/rotate a little bit even after tightening down the screws.

Creative GigaWorks T40 II 32W RMS 2.0 Speakers
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Exactly what I paid for 07/14/2013

This review is from: Creative GigaWorks T40 II 32W RMS 2.0 Speakers

Pros: Good looking setup, black on yellow just looks awesome.

You generally get what you pay for with speakers unless you're looking for brand status. These sound good through all volume levels, haven't gotten any cracks or popping, vibrating buzzes, etc. Not the best on the market, certainly not the worst. I use them almost exclusively for gaming and they're exactly what I wanted

Cons: Minor annoyance: They go into power save mode after 10 minutes of inactivity and it takes a few seconds for them to wake up again so if you're watching videos make sure to wake them up first.

They are bigger than the pictures might have you believe, these suckers are tall so do your measurements.

Other Thoughts: These won't give you thudding bass, but you should already know that if you're looking at a 2.0 setup.

Corsair Vengeance M60  Black 8 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Laser 5700 dpi Performance, FPS Gaming Mouse
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fits great in non-yeti hands, looks cool, the laser isn't overly sensitive like the RAT series from cyborg and hasn't had any mistracking or wobbles, selectable DPI profiles are great for on the fly gaming and some fine-tuning photoshop stuff.

Cons: The 'sniper' button is sort of gimmicky and a little far from my natural palm rest area so I have to reach a bit for it. It could have come with a bit more weights to put in. I've got all three loaded and it still feels a little on the light side. There was some software issue, which I've explained in the other and why I docked an egg

Other Thoughts: So I've seen a couple forms that have this issue posted as well, but sometimes (usually on reboot or waking up from sleep mode) the computer won't recognize the mouse and it won't work. Plugging and unplugging causes a brief flash of the LEDs but nothing more and it usually requires a cold boot to get the mouse recognized again. I never did figure out what the problem was but I fixed it by turning off USB legacy support in the BIOS.
