D-Link DI-634M Wireless 108G MIMO Router IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g
D-Link DI-634M Wireless 108G MIMO Router IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g

Pros: works out of the box best reception ive ever seen faster networking does not cause a fit with other devices

Cons: hhhmmm.... NOTHING

Overall Review: just wow, i bought a WRT54G v5 before reading reviews, and just problems... i sit 10 feet away from my router in my living room and i just get dropped every couple mins, so i go back to the store and get a WRT54GC it worked out of the box, but wireless dropps every 5-15 mins. i have had this happen so many times in the past, i start reading. and find this router. order it, right out of the box m on. 10 foot away perfect reception no drop. i run across my apartment where i was unable to get wireless with other routers(mind you it is only 30 - 40 feet away) perfect! and as a plus everythign is faster pages load instant, i can download 2x as fast on wireless. i used to plug in a cable to download large files. if you are having problems this router is for you! well worth the 100$

Most Critical Review

Works good. not as advertised

5.25" Drive Bay Kits - Fan Controller w/ LED Light
5.25" Drive Bay Kits - Fan Controller w/ LED Light

Pros: Does what i bought it for. Allows 4 pin molex for case fans that dont use the small 3pin

Cons: wouldn't fit flush in my case. i have to have it hang out just a few mm. it says something about having a nice click when you turn the fans on. there is no OFF. and there is no CLICK. every once and a while i get a click at random positions. and i dont consider that a satisfying click

Overall Review: Some people said it shorted out and was dangerous. this is because the 3 pin molex that hangs out needs to be plugged into something or tapped over. i think most people have the molex resting against the side of the case and it shorts out.

Great company. Terrible product

EVGA GeForce 8800 GTX 768MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Support Video Card 768-P2-N831-AR
EVGA GeForce 8800 GTX 768MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Support Video Card 768-P2-N831-AR

Pros: Awsome card. Good going nvidia :) Awsome customer service.

Cons: Very loud electrical whine. First was DOA.

Overall Review: Okay. Evga has awsome customer service. no fighting them on the phone for an RMA. slightest problem and a new one is on the way. willing to crosship. verry pleased!. however the first card was DOA. the second card had a high pitched electrical whine. that got louder as i overclcoked. this is a KNOWN EVGA problem. all of their products do this. i have had 3 mobos do this from them. in the last month i have had 4 mobos not post 1 die in 36 hours. and 2 function with large electrical whine. if your looking for something quiet stay away from all evga products

Great board. but so many DOA

Pros: Removed my bottleneck from cpu / memory. great board. great overclocking. looks great. love the power / reset on the board. built on pc speaker. just a nice product. GREAT customer service

Cons: looks like evga has a problem with keeping good quality components though. alot of people keep getting bad boards. a common problem is the board humm's and eventualyl shorts out.

Overall Review: great customer service. i called evga told them my first was DOA and they cross shipped it. they payed half the over night shipping + they payed the return shipping. new one came in ran great. except it made a humming sound. next morning i heard a short and my computer wouldnt turn on... sent it back to evga and they overnighted a new one for free. as well as paying the return shipping. now if only we can get some better quality boards! great customer service. and great board design.

new version is great!

Antec P182 Gun Metal Black 0.8mm cold rolled steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Antec P182 Gun Metal Black 0.8mm cold rolled steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: New cable routing holes are GREAT rear mounted fan adjustments holes for external water cooling quiet

Cons: bottom fan is not adjustable without opening case side. but is in a position that makes it fairly quiet

Overall Review: I pesronaly use a P180. i just purchased this case for a computer i was buliding someone else. and i love how they moved the fan adjustments outside the case. as well as cutting holes all over for cable managment. much nicer having the main power cable behind the mobo tray. beware. some psu's cables are a little short and its a stretch to reach. on shorter cables you wont be able to route behind the board tray.

Verry quiet!

ENERMAX UC-12EB Case Fan

Pros: Verry quiet. Good build quality. Removable blades for easy cleaning

Cons: Slightly less air flow than i was hoping for.

Overall Review: the fans had a little less air flow than i was hoping for. which was fine. but is a tad low for even a thin radiator
