DEEPCOOL GAMMAXX 400 CPU Cooler 4 Heatpipes 120mm PWM Fan with Blue LED
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Very nice and cool! 08/18/2015

This review is from: DEEPCOOL GAMMAXX 400 CPU Cooler 4 Heatpipes 120mm PWM Fan with Blue LED

Pros: 120mm FAN, includes clips for additional 120mm fan for push and pull cooling. Easy to clip to AM3 socket (once mobo is out of case). 4 Direct touch heat pipes. Size is just right to allow good fit in case and with ram and mobo heat sinks.

Cons: The included CPU grease isn't that effective. I used my zalman super grease instead. Must remove mobo to mount.

Other Thoughts: This is my 3rd heat sink/ fan trying to get my AMD 8320 cool. I think I finally got it! Using the push/ pull I am getting 23C idle! Not sure of load just yet. This is a great cooler and worth the money!

My rig:
AMD 8320 (4ghz clocked)
32GB Gskill ram
MSI 970a-g46 mobo
512gb Crucial SSD
AMD R9 290x video
Antec LanBoy Air Case

NETGEAR R6250-100NAS Wireless AC1600 Dual Band Gigabit Router
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Updated Review 01/06/2015

This review is from: NETGEAR R6250-100NAS Wireless AC1600 Dual Band Gigabit Router

Pros: Fast LAN & Wireless (when it works). Shared USB port, multi bioses to choose from to get the best one you like. If you disable the router's QOS you will see a small gain in a speed test.

Cons: The hugest CON I have found is that the wireless on the unit will stop accepting connections. Not sure how long this takes to mess up or what causes it. I usually must reboot the unit about every 3-4th week per month. Most devices keep their connection, but new or resumed connections don't.

Other Thoughts: I am now getting the Asus ac1900 router to do a small upgrade and see if that holds wireless and allows new connections without reboot.

MSI Gaming 970 Gaming AM3+/AM3 AMD 970 and SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: 6 internal SATA3 ports. Internal USB3 header. Killer NIC (It IS faster!). Crossfire at 8x for both cards. Internal serial port header (if you need it). Over sized heat sinks that help maintain coolness and great look. Not using it, but onboard sound is suppose to be really good.

Cons: Nothing at all

Other Thoughts: If you would like a noticeably faster wired network connection, and enjoy a great sound card, then this bad boy is for you! I upgraded from an MSI 970a-g46 and debated whether it would be worth it for a month, bit the bullet after the price dropped by $10. Only NIC and VIA USB needed installed. Had to fetch both updated drivers from MSI web site. WIN 8.1 Pro was happy after that. Notably faster web pages loading, online games seem to be running a bit smoother and loading faster. The NIC was the biggest improvement with this board thus far. File transfers across network and to USB3 memory sticks fly a bit faster also.
My Rig:
Windows 8.1 Pro
MSI 970 Gaming MOBO
Power Color 7870/ OC
AMD FX-6100 @ 4.2ghz
16GB Gskill Ram @ 1866
Crucial 512GB SSD MX1000
Antec Lanboy Air case
850W Raidmax PSU
