Thermalright SI-120 High Performance CPU Cooling Heatsink
Thermalright SI-120 High Performance CPU Cooling Heatsink

Pros: Pretty good cooler that does a little better than XP-120. My XP-90C does just as good basically with its 90mm fan.

Cons: Not as good as the newer SI-128. The price should be in 30's, not the 40's. Big Typhoon is way better--Big Typhoon is the king of this type of coolers (upright coolers are even more efficient).

Overall Review: Would like to try taking off the IHS (integrated heat-spreader) so that the naked CPU would be like 5 or 8 degrees cooler. The voltage is already high enough anyways.. or else it'd eat too much electricity!

Most Critical Review
G.SKILL Value Series 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR 400 (PC 3200) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F1-3200PHU2-2GBZX
G.SKILL Value Series 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR 400 (PC 3200) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F1-3200PHU2-2GBZX

Pros: No errors, overclocks to 230-235 MHz (DDR466) no problem on 2.5-3-2-7 settings.

Cons: Does not run as advertised at CAS 2.0, even at 200 MHz. It refused to boot into Windows. Only runs at CAS 2.5 or higher.

Overall Review: G.Skill needs to push it a little harder and turn itself into a company like Oxx or Mxxxkin! The potential is really there. It would secure G.Skill as a popular brand-name.

CORSAIR 1GB (2 x 512MB) DDR 400 (PC 3200) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model VS1GBKIT400

Pros: Worked, no problem.

Cons: 1 GB.. still at that price??? The price was not any different than when I bought it 18 months ago!

Overall Review: 2GB is recommended these days...

FLEXIGLOW FGMPFX FX Pro Game Light Up Mouse Pad
FLEXIGLOW FGMPFX FX Pro Game Light Up Mouse Pad

Pros: My goodness! I love it! It's all I could ask for for a regular-sized mousepad on my desk. The LIGHTS and the surface are just perfect.

Cons: Not really a con for me, but if I do not use a wrist padding, the mousepad would tilt up if I rest my wrist on the bottom of the mousepad. It's a good thing thing that I rest my wrist on the separate wrist padding (does not come with the mouse).

Overall Review: Mousepads are a new "market" for PC accessories--there have been lots of new special frag-pads but these are not any better than this one except for the bigger size. I have some others, so I know.

SAMSUNG SpinPoint P Series SP2504C 250GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive Bare Drive
SAMSUNG SpinPoint P Series SP2504C 250GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: About 9-10 months now.. still running just fine! Running a couple of those in Raid 0--just fine since.

Cons: Only 8MB cache... 16MB would have been better!

Overall Review: Samsung is pretty reliable. Probably better than Sony these days...

Good so far

SAMSUNG SpinPoint P Series SP2504C 250GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Running 2 of these in RAID 0 setup with no problems for a few weeks. Samsung quality is the best one, as they make reliable hard drives for Xbox.

Cons: Wish it had 16MB cache.
