Pros: awesome white color
Cons: rapidly clogs up cpu and gpu coolers causing high temps. I was running a 120mmX240mm radiator on my 6850k and temps kept climing so thinking that I had bought a quality product for coolant I figured I would get a 120mmX480mm rad, when I did and installed it the temps got worse 80c+ so I checked the waterblock and it was plugged so I cleaned it and here it is 3 weeks later its plugged again. I would not recommend this product for your systems
Pros: great picture
Cons: I have ordered 2 of these, 1 new and 1 recertified and both were defective. The recert restarts in the middle of games randomly and the new came out of the box with a bunch of vertical lines making it totally unusable.
Overall Review: not sure how these are tested but it seems these were not. not pleased with the product for the cost.
Pros: most of it works but not all of it
Cons: I bought this on the advice from fortin to get the door lock signal and tach signal and it only picked up tach signal. I still had to run a wire into the door panel on my 2004 gm truck. now everything I do tripps the remote start system, if I role either of my windows up or down it turns on the remote starter but does not engage the starter. it is pretty annoying.
Overall Review: probably would not recommend to a friend since I would have to install it and get all f it to work. was easy to install with the help of the hotline.
Pros: it does remote start the vehicle and works well if you set the timer instead of the glow plug light.
tech support was great and it sounded like they were in the U.S.
Cons: called them up when installing due to failure to start and they told me to get the int-sl+
Overall Review: if I knew before what I know now I would have bought separate.
Pros: works great if you throw the crimestoppers part of it away
tech support was great all 3 times
Cons: could not get the remote start with the crimestoppers to work the fobs didn't work so I tried reprogramming them to the unit and had no luck
confusing install if you don't install these all the time
you will need the flash link updater if you buy this
Overall Review: you would be better off to just buy the fortin evo-all with the t harness and the flash link updater. evo-all was easier to install and use as a standalone unit.
Pros: powerful hard hitting amp. very happy with the product.
Cons: the remote bass boost knob does not come with it
Overall Review: make sure you have the correct subwoofer setup before you select an amp. just because it says 100w doesn't mean your subs will handle that power or have the correct ohms rating for the amp. there are a lot of ohm calculators online, USE THEM! and take the time to check your sub(s).
Pros: I get the same speed 30ft away from my ap as I do wired. My speed is 100mbs wired and wireless I get 112mbs. There is a little variation on what you get from what they say
Cons: No luck with the Bluetooth drivers from intel or 3rd party
Overall Review: I installed this on a 2009 Toshiba Satellite laptop with it works great on the dual band but the Bluetooth doesn't. I bought it for the dual band though so don't really care about the bt.
Pros: funny that people use this for what it is advertized for still
Cons: needs different caps for different "massages"
Pros: fast shipping, look cool and quiet
Cons: they used dhl which has verylittle in the way of shipping notifications. the ad here says 102cfm but it really means 10m3hm.so advertized wrong.
Overall Review: bought these caus a friend told me they were quiet, looked at them on here and they say 1200rpm and 60/102.6cfm. so i bought them. got them and box say 60.4 cfm/102.6 m3h so no wonder they are quiet at 1200 rpn there aint many fans that are not not very pleased with the false advert
Pros: super fast windows restart time is ~32seconds with out raid and 36 with
Cons: have gotten 5 of these in the last 1.5-2 years and 2 of them were rma's have another rma on the way as well. luckily i have a raid 5 setup so i can still use and get info off my pc. but... i am getting tired of having to replace them . mp pc will work fine for a long time then one day the raid status says critical and then have to replace one of them. it is so irritating that i bought a 4th to have as a backup when one fails. am looking for another company/ manufacturer to find more reliability with close speeds.
Overall Review: they are like most thing... they work till they fail.
Pros: looks cool and is pretty quiet and accurate delivery date
Cons: seams to run a couple degrees cooler but 2deg c is not much and it seams to let the temp vary just as much as my cpnx10 did. also it cools off the temp a couple degrees more if you install the fan blowing out of the case (backwards of the directions.
Overall Review: seams like it would be a great cooler but just mediocre.
Pros: 6 cores, $200, fast and seams too run cool
Cons: stock heatsink is the same thing as the 965 and it didn't work well on that cpu
Overall Review: haven't had it very long yet but i set it up and over clocked it to 4.01ghz at 1.404 volts. thats pretty low voltage for that oc but it runs great. i ran everest on it for 12 hours and only got up to 42c idles at 30c. while running everest i ran an avi to dvd converter and surfed the net and couldn't notice a speed difference or slower anything. i am running a zalman cpns10x cooler. it runs on everest as cool as my 965 idled. when i ocd it it was all bus speed no multiplier. it pulls a 7.7 in wei. i will review again in 6 months.
Pros: has all the new stuff but pcie2.1 easy to install and worked right out of the box.
Cons: seems to have some o/c limitsthat are not very high or i have a bad combo of hardware. cant get the fsb over 240 or it wont post. also it takes about 10sec from the time i hit the power button to the time the very first screen comes up (the video card screen.
Pros: 7.9wei, 23,000mb/s in winsat mem. running at 1.65volts
running at 9-9-9-24@1920mhz
Cons: cant seem to get to 2000... maybe a hardware conflict not worth docking points as it still gets a 7.9
Overall Review: need i say more
amd 965 @3.9
asus m4a89gtd pro usb3
this ram and 8 gb
ocz vertexle 50gb
Pros: FAST WHEN OPERATIONAL
Cons: WORKED FINE FOR 2 HOURS THEN BLUE SCREENED. REMOVED 1 STICK AND WORKED FINE FOR 15 MIN THEN BSOD. I LIKE OCZ BUT THIS CHEAP RAM IS EXACTLY THAT.
Overall Review: I THOUGHT I MIGHT BE THE ODD MAN AND GET SOME GOOD WORKING RAM... GUESS I WAS WRONG
Pros: very fast easy to install pulled 280mb/s read and 228mb/s write on atto 7.6 on wei rating on amd system
Cons: after install did a fresh install of windows 7 x64 and seemed slow got on the forums and had to update fw to 1.10 then windows had me defrag it and then it was running up to that speed.
Overall Review: use atto for ocz speed tests that is what they do there ratings with. also amd systems don't quite operate as fast as intel so don't expect a 7.7 rating or exactly what it's rated for if using amd.
Pros: pulls 17.7g/s on windows mem assessment with my oc 237fsb speed at stock voltage.
Cons: wasn't cheaper
Overall Review: phenom965 @4.03g
8g of this ram
pny gts 250
Pros: pretty nice cam. great bang for the buck. easy install and descent videos
Cons: won't record over 800x600mp
Pros: fast stock speeds. pulls 6.9 in windows index after driver update. haven't been able to overclock with my setup.
Cons: was a 7.0 before driver update. and can't find any progams that work with my motherboard to be able to o/c
Overall Review: email@example.com
8g ddr2 1066
Pros: FAST AT 3.9GHZ PULLS 7.5 WEI IN WINDOWS 7
Cons: THE O/C LIMIT IS 3.9. DON'T KNOW WHY BUT THIS SEEMS TO BE THE LIMIT ON THESE CPU'S. BEEN RESEARCHING ND CAN'T FIND ANYONE ABLE TO RUN 4.0GHZ
Overall Review: STILL FAST!
Pros: quiet operation at full speed fan. processor overclocked .5g and keeps it under 60c at 100% load. easy to install
Cons: HUGE!!! it stands as tall as the top of a 1L coke bottle label. fits inside my mid tower case though. so no eggs off. leaves little room for installing ram on the m3n78-vmboard but can be done.
Overall Review: idle was 42c and 100% load was 65c until i put a case fan right below it on the side of the case. now cools better.
Pros: made a huge speed increase on my little aspireone netbook
Overall Review: was a little time consuming to install but that is on the computer not the ram
Pros: what a fast processor! runs whatever i through at it and wants more!
Cons: the cooler that comes with it is only for stock speeds, the best with the stock cooler o/c i could do at close to the stock temps was 3.6 no more than that though.
Overall Review: put this with a cnps10x quiet and haven't been ableto get above 54c. case must have good air flow however.
Pros: been great so far! transfers files from folder to folder lightning quick!
Overall Review: i wouldrecomend this and do to everyonewith a sata capable board!
