ARCTIC Freezer 7 Pro - Compact Multi-Compatible Tower CPU Cooler | 92 mm PWM Fan | for AMD AM4 and Intel 115x CPU | Recommended up to 115 W TDP

Pros: Very very nice. dropped my cpu temp down in idle by 7C... and in full load by 20C. from the stock heatsink. running at full speed fan though.. old cpu idle: 33C... new idle: 25C old load: 68C. .. new load: 48C

Cons: Push pins tricky but manageble

Overall Review: C2D E6420 @2.6ghz 4gb pc6400... msi p6n sli plat... antec 900 case.. 8800gts... very VERY satisfied and somewhat surprised by the performance of this cooler... was not expecting that much of a decrease in temp. later this year i'll build a new system.. definitely going to keep this heatsink for my next cpu.. probably Q9450.

Seagate BarraCuda 7200.11 ST3750330AS 750GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive
Seagate BarraCuda 7200.11 ST3750330AS 750GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Seagate usually makes great drives.

Cons: DOA out of box... as soon as i booted.. i heard the infamous clicking noises... upon entering windows and formatting... the drive began to freeze any time i was accessing it. tried to run a HD Tune on it but it just froze up.. clicking noises continued. RMA'ing it back.

Overall Review: Newegg customer service is THE best in the planet. HAve been shopping with them for over 4yrs now and will continue to do so. my 1st item to RMA out of hundreds.

Good while it lasted...

Tenda P200 Powerline Mini Adapter
Tenda P200 Powerline Mini Adapter

Pros: Easy set up. Good while it lasted.

Cons: Slow speeds depending where in your house you use it. Must use on outlet with nothing else plugged in to the other socket (causes interference and speeds drop) This thing claims 200mbps speed.... from an outlet in one room... to the one in the adjacent room... it worked well ~100mbps... however.. the one room over (living room)... speeds dropped dramatically. My 30mbps internet connection in one room... became 3mbps in living room thru the adapter. Failed after 14months.... one of the units took a dump.. makes little noise doesn't power up.

very good

Pros: Very nice. haven't had need to reset it for any reason. Lots of security features and settings. Decent coverage throughout my apt.

Cons: Gets REALLY hot... afraid this will shorten the lifetime of the device. I have it sitting next to my airfilter fan in my room which keeps it pretty cool.

Overall Review: Cheap price.

AWESOME

ONKYO HT-S3100 Black 5.1 Channel Home Theater System
ONKYO HT-S3100 Black 5.1 Channel Home Theater System

Pros: It sounds AMAZING. Very easy to set up, all color coded for the less tec savy individual. I cannot stress this enough... I'm a huge technology guy.. computers, sounds, etc... and it sounds great. I own a logitech z5500 for my computer set up, great set up... but this onkyo sounds BETTER for movies. Deep bass down firing vibrates the floor, it sounds better then movie theater.

Cons: - None... optional IPOD dock that i thought came with it, too bad.

Overall Review: HIGHLY recommend. very cheap for its performance. Get it, you will not regret! still on sale so hurry.

new review...

Logitech Z-5500 505 Watts 5.1 Digital Speaker System
Logitech Z-5500 505 Watts 5.1 Digital Speaker System

Pros: adding on to my other review.... GREAT speakers...

Cons: none

Overall Review: For those of you who think the optical doesnt work when hooking up to ps3.. that is because you have to go into ps3 audio settings and change AUDIO OUTPUT to optical... it is by default set to hdmi. that solves your issue. sounds amazing!!!!!!!
