CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I wanted my 3770k to achieve 4.6 stable and that was easily accomplished on my Asus Z77 Deluxe mobo. Corsair link software is decent.

Cons: 3 of the 8 fan screws stripped while installing. After you achieve even a slight tightening, one more 1/2 turn renders the screw useless. I went to the hardware store and bought 8 metric screws one size larger and I finally got the fans to tighten. Upgraded the stock noisy fans to the quiet version and it was a real pain, but I got the over-sized screws back in.

Other Thoughts: Called Corsiar Tech Support yesterday and left a message-as to why they would release a product with such a terrible design flaw-no reply yet.

YAMAHA AVENTAGE RX-A820 7.2-Channel Receiver
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent AVR 11/04/2012

This review is from: YAMAHA AVENTAGE RX-A820 7.2-Channel Receiver

Pros: Excellent sound quality. Easy to set up. Great features, especially after the firmware update that came out a few days ago, adding Pandora, Sirius/XM, etc. I have it in a large entertainment center and it is cool to the touch. The parametric EQ is wonderful and brought my 5 Polk speakers to life. My LAVA sub is no longer boomy, just deep and tight, but not overwhelming unless I really crank it. The corner placed sub blends beautifully and that was my biggest worry for not getting an Audyssey XT receiver. I researched this for a solid month before buying and am very happy!

Cons: My Onkyo NR605 HDMI board went out after 4 years so I needed an update. When I first set up the Yammy, it sounded really terrible and my family thought I had made a big blunder. You have to spend some time getting the right settings but it is well worth the effort, so it's not really a con at all. You do have to reset the unit to factory default and start over if you screw up the YPAO. Luckily I got it right after one reset.

Other Thoughts: When I first ran the YPAO I used the 8 point measurement and it sounded awful. The center channel was muffled to the point where we couldn't even understand basic dialogue. My LAVA 12 sub barely had any output. I called Yamaha support at 2a.m. and the rep was miffed so he asked me to call back the next day and speak to a level 2 tech. This guy was most helpful. He said the multi-point had confused the receiver. We reset the unit, and did a single point auto setup. Then I measured the distances for the 5 speakers and did a manual setup. You have to make all of the other speakers set to small to use the sub EQ, and I set the crossover to 90Hz. Then here's the best thing: I used the paramatric EQ, and boosted bands 3 and 4 for the center and surrounds (just 1/2 db) and does it ever sound great!! I'm an audiophile and noticed the treble is smoother than the Onkyo, but even more detailed. My sub has NEVER sounded so good. I am impressed.

Logitech Harmony 300i Infrared Universal Remote - 3rd party

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Mine works great 11/04/2012

This review is from: Logitech Harmony 300i Infrared Universal Remote - 3rd party

Pros: Great price. Works great for my 4 devices-Yamaha RX-820, Panny 60 inch plasma, Sony PS3 (got the adapter), and Dish Hopper. I can assign the buttons any way i like and my whole family loves using just one remote instead of having to find and use 4. Less clutter and impressive.

Cons: Wish it was back-lit

Other Thoughts: Happy camper! It's really a 4 star device, but I gave it 5 stars because it is an exceptional VALUE.
