GREAT HS!

ZALMAN CNPS9900ALED 120mm 2 Ball Low-noise Blue LED CPU Cooler
ZALMAN CNPS9900ALED 120mm 2 Ball Low-noise Blue LED CPU Cooler

Pros: This heat sink has been great! i bought it because my stock AMD heatsink, that idled at 35C, was getting very loud and driving me crazy, i have 5 120mm fans in my case and i could hear it over them. This zalman is nice and quiet and now my cpu idles at 25C which is AWESOME. Under full load wont get higher than about 40 - 45C

Cons: this thing is pretty heavy but was expected as it is pure copper, and the backplate hold it very firmly. INSTALLING WAS DIFFICULT! this thing is huge and installing the amd brackets was a nightmare. I won't knock off eggs for this because i believe that reviews should be based on product performance, not the users inability to follow instruction; which the provided instructions were thorough enough for anyone with even a minimal tech level to follow. so here is some advice, even if your case has an open back space specifically for removing a back plate, JUST TAKE OUT YOUR MOBO. it will save you time an grief.

Overall Review: First Zalman purchase, would buy again. I used A.S.5 instead of the stuff they sent me, just out of habit ps. apparently abbreviating Arctic Silver 5 is inappropriate haha

Pros: I have been using AS for a few years now and it always works great, with noticeable improvements over other brands really is great stuff

Cons: not good on hamburgers

Overall Review: i recently installed a new heatsink and my ramslots stopped working, after troubleshooting eveything i could think of to no avail i noticed a finger streak of AS 5 across the back, i cleaned it up and everything worked fine afterwards! really conductive stuff

5.25" Touch Screen Fan Controller

Pros: having this installed has been nice, i have an antec 300 case with 4 120mm fans and 1 140mm fan, three of them have red leds. Pretty simple to install and use, i really like that i can turn individual fans off which is nice at night so i can turn only the led fans off because if i dont its like the fiery pits of hell are in my room when im trying to sleep. i keep it on manual for the reasons below.

Cons: While the temperature probes do seem to work, i couldn't get them to stay where i wanted and even then i have so many fans that i don't believe that the temps were completely correct, also i didn't want to leave the cords strung out all over inside of my case so i just wrapped them up and tucked them behind the device

Great

Pros: Bought it and love it. My mouse slides nicely on it, have noticed improvement in movement response. Was much larger than I mentally pictured it, in a good way.

Cons: Arrived missing user manual

Overall Review: --Sarcasm--

Great buy

Mee audio M6-BK 3.5mm Gold-Plated Connector Canal Stylish Sound-Isolating Earphones (Black)
Mee audio M6-BK 3.5mm Gold-Plated Connector Canal Stylish Sound-Isolating Earphones (Black)

Pros: I bought these on sale for 15 bucks awhile back and i absolutely love them. I'm usually a stickler when buying headphones not paying more than 20 bucks but if i had to i would pay full price for these. They sound really great, i read some reviews complaining about the bass but it sounds great to me (and i set my bass up high). I was skeptical about the shape but they actually fit my ear canals perfectly, and i mean PERFECTLY, so they are very comfortable and block out external noise quite well

Cons: fits my ear so well that after extended use my ear canal gets sweaty O_O

Awesome

ASUS Laptop Intel Core i5 2nd Gen 2430M (2.40GHz) 6GB Memory 640GB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M 15.6" Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit A53SV-NH51

Pros: This laptop was a great buy for me, as I bought it mainly for college work and some gaming on the side. Being a CS major my old laptop just wasn't powerful enough for my needs. This is my first time buying asus and i am very pleased. It runs very smooth even at startup, has a great i5 processor with hyperthreading and turbo (i usually prefer amd but for the price this i5 is fantastic), 6 gigs of ram is much more than i need for school workand is perfect for gaming; also has more hdd space then i will prob ever need on a laptop. The best pro for this price range is that it has a dedicated video card and ram; and the card runs great, ive only played SC2 on it so far but runs perfectly on high settings. Also the battery life on this is awesome; about 4 hours on power saver, and 2 hours on high performance. While that might not seem that great to everyone, i was getting about 1.5 hours power saver on my old machine. So a really great laptop at what i consider a value price.

Cons: IT WENT ON SALE MERE HOURS AFTER I BOUGHT IT!! (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻ GRUMBLE GRUMBLE So if your girlfriend says to sleep on it please do, or you will never hear the end of it; although this model did sell out that day so no regrets on my part.

Overall Review: Many people are saying that it has a lot of bloatware but mine barely had any at all; what it did come with was a few ASUS programs and tools. My advice is to keep Asus Sonic Focus, it lets you control the laptops sound settings (vocals, surround, and bass). The sound quality was very bland until i turned up surround and bass, now has amazing quality
