Most Favorable Review

great fan

IPCQUEEN FAN-IPC-505015 50mm Case cooler
IPCQUEEN FAN-IPC-505015 50mm Case cooler

Pros: i got the right fan. looks like what is in the pics. works great. quiet and powerful.

Cons: i think the stats might be for a different fan. following the provided link to the manufacturers site is a larger fan. i dont think this one moves 28cfm.

Overall Review: i have this running off of a y cable from my motherboard to the front of my pc. it dropped my hdd temps from 50c to 35. money well spent.

Most Critical Review

Really Small Case

Bubalus Cyclone M-ATX Computer Case, Large-Area Cast Iron Front Panel, Lightweight and Practical Body, With 2 120mm Rainbow Fans,Desktop Case,Gaming Case
Bubalus Cyclone M-ATX Computer Case, Large-Area Cast Iron Front Panel, Lightweight and Practical Body, With 2 120mm Rainbow Fans,Desktop Case,Gaming Case

Pros: small and looks pretty handsome

Cons: only includes 2 fans. used to say 3. the specs sheet still lists 3, as does the packaging it arrived in, even the photos have 3 fans. the listed width for a gpu does not take into account the fan installed... so if you are close to the limit, you will not be able to put two fans in the front of the case. the included fans are not speed controlled. they connect directly to the PSU via molex rather than the mobo headers.

Overall Review: i wish they didnt jip me of a fan... even though i cant fit it in the front of the case, i could install it on the side panel.

seems good for the money

Cooler Master Force 500 - Mid Tower Computer Case with USB 3.0
Cooler Master Force 500 - Mid Tower Computer Case with USB 3.0

Pros: cheap, lots of hdd bays, lots of places to mount fans

Cons: front plate doesn't seem to have a lot of space for the fans to suck in air. haven't functionally tested this. as it arrived, there appeared to be a manufacturing defect, as the hdd rack was askew inside the case.

Overall Review: upon closer inspection one of the rivets meant to hold the rack in place was not fastened properly, and instead was keeping the rack pinched closed so a drive would not fit. was easily able to destroy rivet, and replace properly with a screw. everything else seems fine

D-Link Wireless-N Home Router (DIR-601), N150
D-Link Wireless-N Home Router (DIR-601), N150

Pros: This is a nice little router if you can nab it on sale like i did. very mod-able.

Cons: it doesnt have the features of a $40+ you can add some of them with open firmware.

Overall Review: slam gargoyle on it, and you can use it as a client bridge. looks like you can even add a usb port if you are handy with an iron.

Pros: great. fits my hdds and i can use esata or usb to connect them to my pooter. the fan is a bonus. none of my hdds run that hot, but its nice to know if they did, i can cool them down no problem.

Cons: nada
