it works3/30/2015 8:04:15 PM

Pros: It does exactly as it advertises.

Cons: The plastic sliding cover was tough to move at first but I've broken it in since then and it's fine now.

best keyboard I've ever owned3/30/2015 8:00:35 PM

Pros: - Fantastic build quality. It feels solid and doesn't slide anywhere. - Quieter in comparison to other MX Brown keyboards. - The volume control knob has clicky feedback which lets you know every time you change the volume, which is AWESOME. - The USB 3.0 ports are high throughput (I can transfer large files just a quickly as plugging into my tower). - Doesn't show dirt easily and zero fingerprint marks from (aluminum?) matte finish. - Keyboard cable is solid rubber; will NOT be easily trashed. - NKRO is worth mentioning; I can bang on this keyboard with both of my hands and it'll capture every keystroke.

Cons: None whatsoever.

Overall Review: I wish I would have bought this keyboard sooner. It is such a pleasure to type on every day.

Great Product for the price7/26/2013 11:01:23 AM

Pros: I have owned this flash drive since Christmas (was a gift) and I have to say I love the high capacity (it's great for transferring large files like vmdks and pcaps). Speed tops out at around 80MB/sec for me in USB 3.0 which is definitely a step up from USB 2.0 flash drives.

Cons: It overheats sometimes when I'm putting 25GB+ of files on there at once through USB 3.0 so you've got to give it a few minutes to cool off then remount. It wouldn't be a major issue for the average user.

Overall Review: It does it's job very well and I've recommended it to many of my colleagues.

Just crashed.7/25/2013 3:50:00 PM

Pros: Ran well for a year then died without notice.

Cons: It's been running nonstop for a year and finally crashed this morning. I lost 2.5TB of data (yay!) and most of it will take years to replace. Never going to make the mistake of not backing everything up again... or trusting in WD external drives. My caviar black from the turn of the century is still running like a champ.

Just What I Wanted!8/18/2012 2:28:15 PM

Pros: Keeps the CPU cool when doing everyday tasks and when it's ramped up to 100% along with the processor I've never seen it go above 43C which is a big drop from the 53C I was getting with an after-market fan I shall not name here. It's also much quieter than what it has replaced so that's another plus!

Cons: No real complaints here. I just wish I had chosen a different case a few months ago because I had to zip tie this baby in. I also wish there were a way to change the speed of the radiator and fans plugged into it without going in and pressing the button and not paying for the Corsair controller.

Overall Review: This is certainly the best all-in-one CPU cooling solution on the market and I will use it in all my future builds unless there is something better on the market or I want to try and tackle a custom liquid cooling rig.

Pros: I bought two of these a few months ago on sale and they've been great ever since. Quick start-up, reliable, great contrast.

Cons: None.

Runs Great6/2/2012 12:02:25 AM

Pros: It does what I want it to do so I can't complain about that. It pulls air away from behind my motherboard which is what I wanted. Doesn't pull a lot of air but that's expected from any low-profile fan. No issues with noise whatsoever. v-- Read Below

Cons: The only complaint I have is due to its thinness the blades of the fan come up to the mounting edge so there is really only one way to mount it without putting in your own 2-4mm spacers (not included) to mount it the other direction or it can actually rub against the case if you don't leave a gap.

Fan works great!6/2/2012 12:00:31 AM

Pros: Push and pull a lot of air. I've got them mounted underneath my video card to keep it cooled when gaming for prolonged periods. The new Asus motherboard has no problems altering the speed in the Asus custom GUI; easily revs up to max (which is basically silence). A great buy for anyone who needs to move some air.

Cons: Only con is no blue LED light. ;)

Pros: Looks great and works great (for CDs); it's Asus! v-- Read Below

Cons: Alright, so the software they provide you is crud; it won't let you play a Bluray disk. To actually play a movie (which just about what everyone buys these for) you'll need some third-party software (DAPlayer seems to do the job and is free). For anyone who hasn't watched Bluray on your computer, it's not an instant-watch thing like DVD's, it takes a moment because it's a fat movie file. I get video feedback when watching Bluray, not sure if it's a software or hardware issue but it makes watching Bluray on the computer nearly impossible. It's something I'll have to look into later since I'm not watching Blurays too often (it's just one of those nifty add-ons to my PC).

Works Great and Runs FAST!6/1/2012 11:54:23 PM

Pros: Plenty of space for what I need it for (Program files and documents). Matched up with a good SSD my PC is unstoppable. This HDD is not for anyone who wants to store a bunch of movies or music (just go buy yourself a removable 2-3TB hard drive. Coming up from a 5400RPM 3GB/s WD hard drive I can see the difference. I have the fasest transfer-rates I've ever seen and it's a must-have for any gamers without a dedicated SSD already.

Cons: None

Works Great!6/1/2012 11:52:08 PM

Pros: Works great! My boot time to log in screen is 9 seconds. I measured a lot of factors before choosing this one. Nothing else really could level up to it then (I think the Vortex 4 is up there now though). It sucks this went on sale two days after I purchased it though!! Great for running your main OS but not really enough space for much else. If I could do anything differently I would purchase a larger one but I could always just raid a pair if necessary in the future!

Handles Anything6/1/2012 11:50:51 PM

Pros: Plenty of RAM to really do whatever I want. I haven't even gotten close to running out when running three or four VMs. I haven't gotten into any RAM-heavy work yet but this should take it like a champ. And with the motherboard I have I can throw two more of these in if it becomes necessary. I can't really say much else about it; G.Skills has never let me down!

Perfect.6/1/2012 11:49:15 PM

Pros: Best GPU I've ever bought! I have never used XFX before but am surprised to find it measures up to it's counter EVGA cards effortlessly. The graphics are sweet and can keep up with the rest of my PC. This card can handle any game I throw at it! It eats Skyrim and Battlefield for breakfast. :P When buying a a graphics card you should worry about heat. I've run this card hard since I got it and here's my report; it idles around 54C. From two minutes to five hours at 100% load it stays at 77C; I've NEVER seen it hit 80. After that it cools back to 55C in under 5 minutes. The two fans are definitely doing their job!

Cons: The way it heats up my room when I'm gaming but I guess you can't do much about that!

Overall Review: Anyone who plans on buying make sure you have an escape plan for the hot air!

This thing is FAST!6/1/2012 11:45:21 PM

Pros: This is a truly brilliant Intel processor. Matched up with the Asus P8Z77-V Deluxe it can handle anything I throw at it. I normally run two VM's and my PC hasn't slowed down a bit. The CPU idles around 35C but under an average load hops to 38C then up to 45C when gaming. My fan isn't exactly the best on the market (going liquid-cooled soon enough). Have to protect the investment! I would easily buy this processor again.

Cons: Price! But who wouldn't say that ;)

Overall Review: Don't settle for the i5 3550K. Someone jumping up from a Sandy i7 don't waste your money, it's not much of a boost.

I LOVE THIS THING!6/1/2012 11:42:41 PM

Pros: Okay, I've been running this thing non-stop since I got it a week ago and it's a trooper. This is one of the most important things that goes into a case, why not get the best Asus has to offer? This thing comes loaded with more than I imagined. Even after reading every review on multiple websites and watching the videos I was sceptical of it's supposed abilities. I was overjoyed to find it was everything I imagined and more! AI Suite II is open whenever I'm on the computer, just because it's so cool! I can give myself an extra boost (if necessary, lol) and I just like to know my CPU and MB temps. This board has never gotten above 35C btw. The numerous features this board offers set it apart from the rest of the Z77's on the market. When I bought this I knew it would serve me well, Asus is a well-trusted brand. I'm glad I spent the little extra to go Deluxe and not Pro, the I/O configuration is much more my style. This is a great product and I would certainly buy Asus brand again.

Cons: Tips for Asus: Include GPU temp sensors in your AI Suite as well! I run GPU-Z to watch my temp often just to ensure I'm not on the threshold of overheating (gamers gotta worry). And in the instruction manual for assembling your PC, tell the customer to attach the WiFi Go! card BEFORE installing the MB into the case, I got set back twenty minutes because I really wasn't thinking about it either. More fan headers are always welcome too;)

Looks AMAZING!6/1/2012 11:39:56 PM

Pros: This fan is great! It's one of the only Zalman fans that can fit in my case, a 120mm would be pushing the limit even in a mid-tower. One thing a potential buyer must know is that this has a three-pin fan-header and an attachable controller but you'll have to run the controller out of your case to really use it. If you plug it straight into the MB it'll run at full RPM all the time which isn't exactly silent but is bound to keep your CPU cool. I can't tell you how many peple have complimented me on the way this CPU cooler gives my case great presentation. I have a transparent side-panel and this definitely is one of the greatest eye-catchers. Since this fan was so cheap I'm considering just switching to a Corsair water-cooling unit later. I wasn't expecting to be lucky enough to get an i7 Ivy and thought I would be running an i5. Have to protect that investment!

Cons: 4-pin connector please!

Overall Review: Great CPU fan for any mid-level PC, not for gamers.

Cleans Great6/1/2012 11:37:36 PM

Pros: If you're taking off really old thermal paste you'll want this stuff! It cleans the plates up nicely of old paste and foreign material so you can get the best heat transfer. Took off five-year-old thermal paste without a problem (I tried getting it off without it first and found it was necessary).

Cons: None :)

Overall Review: Don't apply more than a few drops when dealing with CPU! Overflow = BAD

Does the job6/1/2012 11:33:48 PM

Pros: Does the trick at keeping my CPU cool. I'm not an expert on thermal paste so I can't go into the science of it but I trust this stuff more than the pre-applied stuff or what's included with the CPU or CPU fan.

Cons: The price :\

Beautiful!6/1/2012 11:30:31 PM

Pros: I've had this PSU running non-stop for a week now and no issues whatsoever. Plenty of power for my needs and I don't see any crossfiring in my future so this should serve me for quite some time. I've checked it a few times and it never really gets above 32C (if that's even it's fault, I have a GPU fan bearing down right into the PSU intake fan). I didn't want to switch orientation just cause I wanted the light in the case ;)

Cons: Tip for Corsair: Make the 8-Pin CPU cable a little longer, I didn't have enough cord to run it through the cable-management system behind the motherboard so it's just running along the edge. Other than that, great product!

This Case is AMAZING!!6/1/2012 11:26:58 PM

Pros: It has everything any of the high-end cases have without the scary price-tag. I originally was interested in the case not just for the side-panel and top HDD Dock but the great airflow it offered which can't be seen in many of the other popular cases. This case comes with five fans pre-installed (three with blue LED's, which add an eye-catching aesthetic to my build) already installed in the correct orientation for the best airflow through your system. Being the cautious type I went ahead and installed three more: one behind the motherboard (great feature rarely seen in cases under $100), another 120mm on the top (you should go 140mm just cause you can; I didn't know), and a 120mm on the bottom pulling air in.

Cons: The only complaint I have about this case is that the wires coming from the top-panel ports come a bit too low and make it difficult to install a top 5.25" CD drive in (but not impossible). Input for a new case: Include holes for more fan installations along the HDD cage. ;) When I purchased this I was worried it wouldn't be everything I wanted but it turned out to be that and more! I am so happy with it and I couldn't have chosen a better case. A bigger side windows would have been great though; I built my PC for functionality as we as style and this case definitely allowed me to do that! CASE: Rosewill Blackhawk Mid-Tower w/ 8 internal fans PSU: Corsair Gaming Series 800W CPU: i7-3770K Ivy @3.9GHz MB: Asus P8Z77-V Deluxe RAM: 16GB G.Skill Ripjaw (2x8GB) @1600MHz GPU: XFX Radeon HD 6950 2GB CPU-C:Zalman 92mm CPU Cooler SSD: HyperX 120GB (Win7 Ultimate) HDD: WD 1TB @7200RPM 6GB/s CDD: Asus Internal Blu-ray Drive

Overall Review: This case features a sturdy mesh frame on the top and bottom making it truly one of the best cases for conducting airflow but also the best dustcatcher. Rosewill thought of that though and along all the mesh there is another layer that's thinner so it will catch whatever's trying to get in (and it's removable so you can clean it!). Other owners didn't like the feel of the mesh panels but I find them to be tough and I have no worries when I move it or carry it. Everything was really thought about in the designing of this case. There are gromets for liquid cooling if you plan to go that route (which I do very soon). The cable-management system within this case is truly top-of-the-line. Every grommet was placed in that space for a reason which becomes apparent once you begin putting your parts inside. I had no problem fitting all of my wires in the back panel (zip-ties are your friend!).
