great for linux

Patriot PCBOWAU2-N Wireless LAN USB Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g/n USB 2.0 Up to 300Mbps Wireless Data Rates

Pros: Plug and Play with Ubuntu (natty)

Cons: none so far

Overall Review: This is the second wireless adapter I bought for a linux machine I built my gf. I made the mistake of not reading the details on the first one carefully and realizing Id have to go through significant hassle to install the drivers. so i scrapped that plan and got this. it was easy enough for my gf to do herself which is saying something. plugged it in and it just worked.

Pros: works well small price

Cons: you need the adapter for SD mini or memory card duo which they dont mention short cable mislabeled slots

Overall Review: Ordered one day and got the package the NEXT DAY. Newegg is awesome.

Ruined several motherboards

Pros: worked OK for a few months

Cons: Started having issues with my PC not booting and when it did no video. Swapped in an old video card and still no video so I tried this video card in another PC. Now both are having booting problems and won't display video. Will attempt to return but just so I can sell it, I don't want to give this card in another PC motherboard to ruin.

great cooler

KINGWIN Aquastar AS-3000 AquaStar Liquid Cooler System

Pros: Great system Easy to install Dropped my cpu temp 20 degrees C, i was running pretty hot before this. Quiet - the pump is louder than the fans but even the pump is quieter than my old HSF.

Cons: This system looks great, matches my aluminum case perfectly but I wish I could turn all the LEDs off at night. Might have to open it up and mod it.

Overall Review: Great price for a solid beginner watercooling kit.

Comments: A ton of very long connectors (maybe too many or long for a small case but worked great for me), very quiet, stable. Great PS. Once again Newegg comes through, my entire system (Power supply, case fans, processor, video card, software, RAM and HD) at my door less than 2 days after I ordered it.
