Simply QUIET!

MASSCOOL FD08025B1M3/4 80mm Cooling Fan
MASSCOOL FD08025B1M3/4 80mm Cooling Fan

Pros: Moves MEGA air. Quieter than a purring kitten!

Cons: None yet

Overall Review: Air flow is 1.5x my old fans, and the sound is about half. I switched out four old fans for these and my cpu temp lowered 2 degrees C idle and 4 degrees C lower when power-playing games!

Most Critical Review

High Amperage!

Powertek powertek500 500 W ATX12V Power Supply
Powertek powertek500 500 W ATX12V Power Supply

Pros: *High amperage allows more overclocking for all parts (CPU, GPU, RAM, etc...) *More than adequate power for all of my system *Huge fan keeps this baby running cool, yet it's quiet too

Cons: *Too few connectors (1x24pin + 1x4pin for mobo, 4x4pin for ide drives, and 1x4pin FDD; no SATA) *Cables a little short; won't be a problem for most, but I've got a huge case

Overall Review: *I got this because my GPU requires large amperage, and this was more than sufficient; bye-bye to graphical glitches due to low amperage (woot!) *I'd reccomend this case to anyone with a small case and powerful system, but with no more than 4 IDE drives

Excellent Product

Hitachi GST Deskstar T7K500 HDT725032VLA360 (0A33435) 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive Bare Drive
Hitachi GST Deskstar T7K500 HDT725032VLA360 (0A33435) 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Fast. Easy to install. Whisper quiet. Big storage, small price.

Cons: They were $20 more per pop when I bought them, but that's to be expected with how long I've had them.

Overall Review: I got two and setup a striped RAID on my nForce board. Still truckin'. Never had any problems. I'll probably buy a few more soon.

No Complaints

Linksys WRT54GS Wireless-G Broadband Router with SpeedBooster IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g
Linksys WRT54GS Wireless-G Broadband Router with SpeedBooster IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g

Pros: Strong to Excellent signal on all connections. Easy to configure. Never had any network problems that were caused by this device.

Cons: Haven't had any.

Overall Review: I'm not sure that the "Speedbooster" function actually speeds anything up. It probably would for file transfers, but the regular G speeds are faster than most cable/dsl modems anyway. I'm buying another when I move out next month because my dad's keeping the old one, and I'd recommend this for anybody who wants to go wifi.

Another Great Logitech Product

Logitech G3 931691-0403 2-Tone 5 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Laser 2000 dpi Mouse
Logitech G3 931691-0403 2-Tone 5 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Laser 2000 dpi Mouse

Pros: Laser = super high tracking resolution for ultra precise motion even at the highest speed. Also allows switching between track speeds, so you can program it for up to five different speeds. If you don't want to use this feature, you can reprogram that button to do whatever you want

Cons: My USB port won't recognize this device on booting windows, but if I unplug it and plug it back in it works flawlessly. This is entirely the fault of my bad USB port, though, and should not be a problem for anyone else.

Overall Review: Huge upgrade from my old Logitech MouseMan Optical Wheelmouse. Took a while to get used to the change from an ergonomic mouse back to the standard design, but it's worth it.
