Sunbeam FC PCI Fan Controller
Sunbeam FC PCI Fan Controller

Pros: if you have a Graphics card that blocks but doesn't use the PCI outlet this is perfect. Controller on the out side where you can get to it

Cons: none so far

Overall Review: put this right next the ZALMAN GPU fan. this really came in handy...as i was installing a new case fan on my older DELL 4500. the motherboard has a special 3-pin connector...I didn't want to cut the fan cable to is cut an soldered the old dell fan's plug to this fan controller.

Most Critical Review

don't do it!

VANTEC VTX-C01-BK VORTEX Hard Disk Drive Cooler with crossflow blower
VANTEC VTX-C01-BK VORTEX Hard Disk Drive Cooler with crossflow blower

Pros: Its keeping the HD temp stable in 80*F air temp

Cons: air flow is weak... cross flow what?

Overall Review: its not load, because its weak. it does have a tone that most might find annoying but its not load. I had to fix the front when I got it before it could go into the case. good concept poor execution

I finialy got my SLC

Intel 311 Series Larsen Creek SSDSA2VP020G201 2.5" 20GB SATA II SLC Enterprise Solid State Disk
Intel 311 Series Larsen Creek SSDSA2VP020G201 2.5" 20GB SATA II SLC Enterprise Solid State Disk

Pros: SCL (single level cell) technology

Cons: Its only 20Gb!

Overall Review: I originally wanted a SCL base USB flash drive sold in Japan. However this will due. The Intel MLC 320 is fast but hay I finally got my SLC!

ICY DOCK MB990SP-B Dual Bay 2.5" to 3.5" SATA/IDE SSD & Hard Drive Bracket / Adapter, tool-less design for installation
ICY DOCK MB990SP-B Dual Bay 2.5" to 3.5" SATA/IDE SSD & Hard Drive Bracket / Adapter, tool-less design for installation

Pros: 2 SSDs in one bay slot. make it easy for when I want to move them

Cons: the brass balled screws didn't really work in my case so used regular ones

Overall Review: I would get this if only not too mess with an extra pair of screws for each SSD

I finialy got my Cake er I mean Calibre!

SPARKLE Calibre Series GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card X560 Ti DF
SPARKLE Calibre Series GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card X560 Ti DF

Pros: The Calibre X560 Ti is a computing power house. Its factory over clocked. It runs cool when your not doing 3D stuff with it. Has a lot of extra metal to absorb more heat. The fan noise is standard even at max rpm.

Cons: This card can give off a lot of hot when playing 3D. I couldn't install a card next to it because its a little wider than the standard specification.

Overall Review: I was OK with the heat in the winter time. Actually warmed my room while I was playing Batman AC (everything maxed). I didn't have any problems with it over heating. I do think it will survive in the summer heat as long as I have enough fans in the case to get the heat out. I have owned this for 6 months. So far the fan noise is OK even with the side of the case open at max rpm. 680watt PSU;Core2 Quad overclocked to 3.2ghz;2 SSDs; 2HHDs; 8GB DDR2 RAM and everything runs stable. I also got this card to experiment with CUDA and GPU rendering. I'll be interested in the 600 series for my next PC build!
