One NICE Fan!!

GELID Solutions WING 14 UV Blue FN-FW14B-12 140mm Case Fan
GELID Solutions WING 14 UV Blue FN-FW14B-12 140mm Case Fan

Pros: This fan is very quiet and very affective. The nanoflux bearing uses a very unique magnetic design and runs friction free thus its quietness. Compared to sleeve and ball bearing fans the Gelids Nanoflux bearing is high precision and self lubricating and eliminates any oil leakage. The impeller can be detached and thus the fan blades can then be cleaned easily. The warranty Newegg lists is 3 years, but actually the warranty is 5 YEARS! If you want it to run even more silent you can use the enclosed noise reduction cable which will bring the fan down to around 900rpm and 20.5 dBA (63CFM) instead of the 1200 rpm and 26dBA but I prefer full bore as the dba is so very minimal! At full speed you should get around 80CFM. Extra long life 100,000 h MTTF at 40C The wiring is sleeved in black and very nicely fitted ends. You can tell there was more put into the build on these fans. 3 pin Molex connector is what you have for connection.

Cons: Pricey...But as they say you get what you pay for I guess...

Overall Review: Also the fan blades are UV reactive so if you have your case lit with a UV light you get an added bonus ...Don't be fooled this fan is not led lit. 4 rubber fan mounts 4 metal screws included.

Most Critical Review

Disappointed but happy it came from Newegg

Crucial 1GB DDR 333 (PC 2700) Desktop Memory Model CT12864Z335
Crucial 1GB DDR 333 (PC 2700) Desktop Memory Model CT12864Z335

Pros: Memory was priced better than ordering directly from Crucial.

Cons: Memory caused BSOD in an Asus A7V266-E mobo. This memory is guaranteed to work in this mobo even thoought the mobo accepts up to pc2100. Memory is suppose to clock down to pc2100 spec. I tried the 1 gig stick in slot 0 along with my 2 512 mb pc2100 crucial memory in slot 1 and 2 still got bsod after about 2 hours of operation. I thien tried the memory in the last slot with the 2 512s in slot 0 and 1 respectively.... still go the blue screen of death after several hours of operation. Removed the 1 gig stick from Newegg and all is well again.

Overall Review: I can only assume at this moment that the memory was bad, although I ran software tests on it over night and it showed nothing wrong. Crucial tech support told me to send it back to Newegg. Newegg offered to send another stick of Brand New memory at no additional charge to try it. If this doesn't work Newegg said they would refund me the full purchase price. Newegg takes care of their customers! Thats why I'm happy to order from them.

Perfect Monitor

ViewSonic X Series VX2240W Black-Silver 22" 2msDVI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 1000:1, 4000:1 (DC)
ViewSonic X Series VX2240W Black-Silver 22" 2msDVI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 1000:1, 4000:1 (DC)

Pros: This monitor has been flawless. Quality is high clarity perfect. This monitor does not get hot as one reviewer says. Sure there is a little heat coming off the top you will get that from any LCD monitor. I have had no problems with this monitor at all. One reviewer said the base sticks out to far he cant put his keyboard close to it. DUDE all monitors bases come out a little in front unless u have an old CRT monitor. You cant score a monitor so low because its base sticks out in the front a little. Most of the reviews here are gripes for one reason or another but this is a high quality monitor and has exceptional picture quality.

Cons: None unless you need built in speakers or USB support.

Overall Review: Great price now on this puppy I paid a lot more directly from Viewsonic since Newegg did not carry it at the time.

No guarantee a Jasper chipset is in an Elite system

Microsoft Xbox 360 Elite Bundle w/Halo 3 & Fable 2
Microsoft Xbox 360 Elite Bundle w/Halo 3 & Fable 2

Pros: Xbox is great system....However...... Karkarov is incorrect. The newer Elite systems with Haslo and Fable 2 bundle do not always have a Jasper Chipset. I went thru 5 of these Units at my local Best Buy and we found no Jasper units. The way you tell if you have a Jasper chipset is to take the Xbox out of its container and look at the White Serial number Sticker. If the sticker has 12V...12.1A then you have a Jasper Unit. We opened one Arcade box and these seem to have the Jasper Chipset. So if you want to latest Jasper chipset it appears that the Arcade system is the one to buy currently. But to be sure you have to check the sticker.

Cons: Buyer Beware if your looking for the New Jasper Chipset.

WARNING FIRMWARE FLAWED

Seagate BarraCuda 7200.11 ST31500341AS 1.5TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive
Seagate BarraCuda 7200.11 ST31500341AS 1.5TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Be sure when you buy this drive that you flash the firmware from Seagate. Seagate is obviously over whelmed with these problems so don't expect fast tech support. Go here to view the model numbers affected and more on this problem http://seagate.custkb.com/seagate/crm/selfservice/search.jsp?DocId=207931

Cons: Bad Firmware buyer may want to be aware before purchase.

This is not the Mem pipe board

ASUS M3N-HT Deluxe/HDMI AM2+/AM2 NVIDIA nForce 780a SLI HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
ASUS M3N-HT Deluxe/HDMI AM2+/AM2 NVIDIA nForce 780a SLI HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: New egg can't explain this but this board listed should be the Mem pipe board notice the the description. However, this board appears to be the HD version (non Mempipe) Although when you look at the pics of this board it does show HT Deluxe on the board but the picture clearly does not show w pipe going to the memory. Compare the M3N-HT Deluxe and the M3N-HD Deluxe here at Asus. http://usa.asus.com/products.aspx?l1=3&l2=149 Something is not right here. Very Confusing! So if anyone has actually got this board can you tell us if its this board: http://usa.asus.com/products.aspx?l1=3&l2=149&l3=646&l4=0&model=2097&modelmenu=1 As far as I know there is no M3N-HT Deluxe board without a mempipe. Looks like Newegg is selling something that doesn't exist. Would like an explanation.

Cons: ....

Overall Review: Very confusing!
