Pros: Cools the ps3 down to a satisfatory level at least way better than stock cooling. Did I mentchion it does a great job of keeping the power full machine cool.
Cons: Noisy to a certain level that can be explained later. The one big main fan has a serious issue upon start up as the fan does not want to kick in its screems until you give it a tap to knock the fan to start up will be looking for some better fan that i can mod in its place to elimante that problem.
Overall Review: Yes besides the fans being loud upon start up but turn the darn volume up and enjoy the hugh qualty sound as im sure every one does then the fan sound is gone problem solved. I could care less even if it was louder as long as i know my machine is staying cool is all that matters to me. I would rather pay at the max 50 bucks to replace an after cooler than 600 for a whole new over heated machine-safe not sorry.
Pros: Awesome potential, free internet and online game play for certain games at all that I have played so far, sleek design, Did I mentchion powerfull potential, blue tooth ready for any type of blue tooth device like a headset for your cell phone works well. One day it will put the 360 in its rightfull place (in a garbage can). An uncompareable processor to anything out there even PC'S with the most potential that you could even think about.
Cons: Heat without after market intercooler, No games yet have come close to the potentail that this massive machine can put out which really sucks, Not as wealthy as microsoft that can buy out release dates and other suck nick naks. other then that I have no REAL problems about the machine.
Overall Review: REMEBER people YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR, read the reviews and don't pass your quick judgement on comparision of the PS3 and 360 about things suck as the price, think about and look up what the PS3 has to offer compared to its counter part like free internet and other such items add up after a while and soon before they know it the 360 costs as much as the PS3. If you were one about the future and potentail read the reviews the PS3 dominates in those the machine's power has not really flexed its strength yet for no game yet has allowed the machine to do that. Dont be quick to compare and judge read the reviews sure some games are sole to one sys and that makes some decide but use good judgement. More power=More potential
Pros: Very Excelent Cooling, Runs my amd sandeigo +4000 at 25c idle at up to 80 dg room temp and the highest I seen it get was 34c under full load while playing battle field 2. I also use artic silver 5 for great power to heat transfer. Aslo use this cooling device In an aspire X-superalien case with 6 case fans. In general Super cool cooling. Well worth the money spent.
Cons: Besides my case that can be somewhat loud the cooling fan cannot be heard over the case fans.
Overall Review: Super Fast shipping. Pay attention what kind of case your putting it in. Aslo know your room temp that also affects your cooling. Finnaly choose your thermal pase wisely each paste with act differently I would recomend the ARCTIC SILVER 5. Also I have the fan on the automatic speed control, by having a thermal prod (included) and the tape, attached to the copper very near the cpu and no problems even after 3 months of use.
Pros: I bought this card to max out all the graphic settings on every game that I have and I have to say I'll give it an A+. for all games, Increadible on BF2.
Cons: Besides the fair penny you have to pay for this it's well worth it. Games will be played in a whole new level. Thanks Newegg for the best service well worth it.
