1ST PC CORP. PFB1212UHE-F00 Case Cooling Fan
1ST PC CORP. PFB1212UHE-F00 Case Cooling Fan

Pros: Everything

Cons: Sound - but knew full well when purchased.

Overall Review: There is something to be said about a case fan that has been compared to leaf blowers, hair dryers, jet engines, and ICBMs (Intercontinental ballistic Missile). One of my case fans went out and so the hunt began for a replacement. After much deliberation and elimination, this fan out performs any fan concerning sound, cfm, and rpm ratio. Part of me made the purchase out of shear amusement for a case fan that has such a colorful reputation. At the end of the day, this fan performs. I recommend this fan hands down if you have no regard for children, small animals, or spouses. I have used this fan as both intake and exhaust. In both scenarios, the average temperature dropped 10° C. CPU cores dropped from 50 to 38, CPU 42 to 23. I ended up setting this fan towards the bottom of the case as a filtered intake; it's well insulated, so sound is not as noticeable. If you do use this as an intake, make sure you have filters galore. She will fill your system with dust! I will be purchasing more.

Sabrent 7 Slot USB 2.0 Internal Memory Card Reader & Writer (CRW-UINB)

Pros: -Compatibility galore. -Fits in the bay nicely.

Overall Review: Case Cooler Master Cosmos 1000

It kind of works... still

COOLER MASTER V8 RR-UV8-XBU1-GP 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler Compatible with Intel 1366/1155/775 and AMD AM3/AM2+/AM2
COOLER MASTER V8 RR-UV8-XBU1-GP 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler Compatible with Intel 1366/1155/775 and AMD AM3/AM2+/AM2

Pros: -120mm FAN -Pretty good build quality -Aesthetics - I always appreciate the Cooler Master team dedication on very pleasing and functional designs.

Cons: -Some really strange noises emerging from the V8 -Believe they used a sleeve based fan... operates quietly comparability to BB systems, but time and use seem to have finally worn it down.

Overall Review: -looking to replace the fan with a delta fan (ball bearing) -Large (the vertical height off the mother board is something to consider when purchasing this unit) -Better cost benefit when compared to the V6 and V10... but will require some maintenance down the road.

ROCCAT Kone[+] ROC-11-801 Black 8 Buttons Tilt Wheel USB Wired Laser 6000 dpi Gaming Mouse

Pros: Just what the doctored ordered. -6000 DPI -Macro settings -Volume control -Tracking system -loss-less connection -Weight Variation -Solid, well-crafted design -Amusing LEDs

Cons: Updating/installing Drivers involves a quest... not a long one, maybe 10 minutes worth. The drivers will allow one to customize profile settings, macros, and so on. Nevertheless, still "plug and play" out of the box.

Overall Review: I use this device for CADD and 3D modeling software; in addition to gaming. Performs across the board very well, would recommend to friends/family or purchase again. Nice to see quality products from a great company finally doing business from across the puddle.

Does the job

Pros: -Great build quality -Moves air very well -The noise is negligible - barely notice it @ 100% output.

Cons: Presently none.

Overall Review: Using 2 of these as exhaust, 1 as intake, and the other as the hard drive bay cooler.

Pros: -Fits in a case that has a door -Mesh matches close enough to case -Simple plug and play -Good for 5 fans

Cons: -Not modular (Miscellaneous cables will float around) -Wires are way...way... way too long (it would be nicer if there were 2 or 3 that were long and the other 2 or 3 short). -Power Range (40%~100%) Would have preferred if it went as low as 20% power. -The LED light (serves no purpose... could have saved everyone some time and money if they excluded this feature)

Overall Review: Cooler Master Cosmos 1000 Case 4 x Delta AFB1212HHE-F00 120mm Case Fan 1 x 1ST PC CORP. PFB1212UHE-F00 120mm Case Fan For you fanatics out there... There is a "more solid" version of this controller... I was not impressed with the composition of materials. It is about twice as much and looks better in my opinion; it is also five or six 50w channels. Unfortunately, it is rather difficult to locate a retailer and purchase, so I settled on its little brother; all has been working fine.
