Rosewill Computer Case Fan, 120mm, LP4 Adapter, 3 /4 Pin Connector, Red Frame, 4 Red LED Lights, Sleeve Bearing, Silent - RFA-120-RL

Pros: Very quiet...comparable to a Cooler Master stock 120mm fan. Cheap Very bright and red LEDs There are more fins on this than the usual 120... more air with less sound Tinted red

Cons: None...really happy

Overall Review: I know my way around 120mm fans... I have had all types and I can say that this ranks close to the Sycthe X-Flex

Flawless

Crucial 2GB (2 x 1GB) 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Dual Channel Kit Laptop Memory Model CT2KIT12864AC667
Crucial 2GB (2 x 1GB) 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Dual Channel Kit Laptop Memory Model CT2KIT12864AC667

Pros: Quick, Easy, No Problems. Used on a Macbook 1.86 GHz Core 2 Duo...upgraded from 512mb while simultaneously upgrading to Snow Leopard. For a total of $60 I completely renewed and revamped my Macbook. I can actually open Word 2008 AND Safari at the same time. I would recommend this upgrade with Snow Leopard....It seems to be able to use the hardware more efficiently.

Cons: Shipping was a day longer than expected.

Overall Review: What more can you ask from memory than to do what it's meant to do.

Great Drive

Western Digital Element 1TB 3.5" Black External Hard Drive
Western Digital Element 1TB 3.5" Black External Hard Drive

Pros: This drive is exceptionally quiet. I keep it on top of my case, out of the way of everything. The all-aluminum construction is what forced me to buy this particular external hard drive. It stays very cool and the metal dissipates the heat very quickly. The rubber pads really make this thing look and feel rugged. The power cable is a single line unlike most power supplies that have an inline converter. I enjoy having the power and activity light in the back where it is out of the way. Very simple, clean and unobtrusive design. Free shipping arrived in 2 days!

Cons: No eSata...I would have paid 10-20 more for that alone. Inevitably it is slower than eSata. They made me reformat which took 10 seconds of my life that I will never get back.

Overall Review: That was sarcasm. Exquisite drive.

Always Trust Rosewill

Rosewill RCX-Z940-SL 92mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler
Rosewill RCX-Z940-SL 92mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler

Pros: On my older Athlon 64 3700+ socket 939 it runs at 28c steady overclocked from 2.2 to 2.75 GHz. Using Prime95 it goes up to 33c. The stock cooler fan ran a good 2 years then died and I needed a replacement (the stock cooler would keep it around 45c !) This was one of the cheapest and looked astounding. With the extra thermal paste this is possibly the cheapest 939 cooler on Newegg. I have an older mobo so I don't have the 4-pin PWM so the fan runs at full speed/1950rpm, but its a really quiet fan.

Cons: I had a little trouble installing...its tough to latch the clip with the fan in the way. Also the first time I tried to install I forgot to lock the CPU in place and that caused all kinds of problems ( good thing they supply extra paste.

Overall Review: Get it! Its cheap and efficient. They recommend using 1.5mm of the paste, I only used about .75mm and that seemed more than enough.

Sweet little case

Pros: Small, sturdy, unobtrusive, easy, quiet

Cons: a little cheap

Overall Review: The power supply fan is very quiet and moves a lot of air so is the rear case fan. The cpu vent is nice too. I like it because of its size. Going to buy again
