This review is from: CORSAIR CMXAF2 Fan & Heatsinks
Pros: Nice dual fan mount.
Cons: Received it missing the side mounts/brackets to attach on to the ram slot...*sigh* anyway decided to use it to place along the side of the gpu's to get some circulation in the mid and lower slots.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Bright and sharp. Upgraded from a cheaper samsung that had a TN panel. 1920x1200 is great, thought I could get by on the 16x9 but found it annoying on some apps that appear to want more viewing real-estate. My old workstation I ran 1600x1200 on a Samsung 204t.
Cons: Minor gripe while opening. Normally I open a NEW monitor box and see that it is sealed, wrapped and taped tightly. Instead a 2 sheet bag/protector was loosely drapped over, not even sealed at the bottom. It was pretty much just Open the box, lift monitor on table, pull off cover. So of course it made me look closely at it seeing some minor surface scratches with the monitor off and checking it under a light to see. 1 dead pixel as far as I can tell.
Other Thoughts: hmm...open box...READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Vantec Iceberq 5 Copper VGA Cooling Kit with Blue LED Fan - Model CCB-A5C
Pros: Very easy to install. Ram heatsinks went on without a hitch. A lot of room to spare on my 'ol Quadro FX380 card.
Cons: None. Had to make an adjustment after seeing that the holding screw on the graphics card sticks about an 1/8th inch towards a capacitor causing it nudge a bit. So before installing look around the slot to see if any capacitors are near the screw hole mounts.
Other Thoughts: Had 2 different quadro fx cards fail within a 2 year life span on each replacement, so decided to replace the new stock with this. So far a noticeable avg of 10 degree C drop from the previous temp readings with GPU-z. As much as I want to blame heat instead of P-N-Y... time will tell.READ FULL REVIEW
