Pros: Plays nicely with Windows 7 (32 and 64 bit versions), no quirkiness or failures.
Other Thoughts: In my house, the HTPC is just out of range of my wireless keyboard/mouse when comfortably sitting on my sofa. By using this extension and routing the cable around the perimeter of the room, the receiver is now next to the sofa. No more problems when trying to navigate Windows Media Center or searching Netflix or Hulu.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Thermaltake TR2 TR-500 500W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Power Supply
Pros: Powers the modest requirements of my HTPC.
Cons: After about a week, the fan became noisy (like a bad bearing). Give it a whack, it quiets down for a while. Since I'm not fond of hitting my PC, I'm not pleased with this condition.
Other Thoughts: Silence is golden, so no gold for this power supply. I had really hoped it was a case fan or the CPU fan making the noise, but those weren't the culprits. Nuts.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill RCX-Z300 92mm Ball CPU Cooler
Pros: Much quieter than the stock fan included with my socket 1155 CPU. Temperature dropped by three degrees Celsius, too!
Other Thoughts: I was rather dismayed by how noisy my two week old stock Intel fan had become. There was another issue of height clearance with a replacement unit since the power supply in my Silverstone Micro ATX case is right above the CPU. This cooler fit with no problem.READ FULL REVIEW
