Most Favorable Review
GIGABYTE GA-EG45M-UD2H LGA 775 Intel G45 HDMI Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
GIGABYTE GA-EG45M-UD2H LGA 775 Intel G45 HDMI Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Simple To Set-up, no Glitches. Board Runs Cool. Best BIOS I Have Ever Seen On A Micro Board. No Problems so far. Overclocks easily, Board will run 1066 memory & 1600 FSB as advertised.

Cons: None at all.

Overall Review: Best Micro-Board I've Ever Used. Was not as impressed with the last Gigabyte board I bought, [GA-73PVM-S2H] that is still A verry good board but had driver issues. This one Has No Issues.

It's OK

SOLEUS AIR MAC-12K 12,000 Cooling Capacity (BTU) Portable Air Conditioner
SOLEUS AIR MAC-12K 12,000 Cooling Capacity (BTU) Portable Air Conditioner

Pros: This Unit deffinately works. It looks good, Very Nice, Easy To Use controll panel with a remote. Very low priced compaired to other brands. Has an oscilating output vent. This also has an Auto setting on the controll unit, if your hoses are conected properly you can just set it on auto and not have to worry about it except for cleaning the filter every once in a while.

Cons: Very Large as specified [32" tall, 18" wide, 19" deep] Very Noisy but Most A/C units are. Weighs a ton. Very Poor Packageing. When UPS dropped this off [and literally dropped it] the box came apart. There is no bottom to the box, just styrofoam. If Unit would not have worked I would have had to find an alternative packageing to ship it back in. Intake and Exaust hoses are listed as 4" but messure about 5-1/4" The Exaust hose must be used, it produces heat about like a Clothes Dryer vent. These hoses limit where you can have this unit in your home and make it look ugly. This unit has very small casters that make it hard to roll on carpet.

Overall Review: This is a four-in-one unit. Heater, A/C unit, De-Humidifier & Fan All in one. Packaging should be better [at least the bottom of the box] and UPS should be a lot more carefull. Make sure the drain plug is pushed in all the way or you will have water all over the floor. Better yet connect a small hose to it [not suplied] and let it drain outside of your home. All-in-All this is a very nice unit so far, I just hope it lasts a few years.

Always A Great Cooler.

ASUS V-60 92mm Vapo Bearing CPU Cooler

Pros: Excelent cooler. As i said in an erlier review I own three of thees and all in micro cases, They work great on all socket 775 CPU's that I have tried ranging from celerons to Quad cores. THEY KEEP YOUR CPU COOL.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: As for AndrewA review, This cooler was designed for socket 775 CPU's not for the new 1366 boards, so don't blame the cooler, Blame the builder!

Just What I Needed

Controller, Panel
Controller, Panel

Pros: I needed a three fan controller that would fit in the back of my case [Aerocool M-40], this works just fine.

Cons: Cable length is a little long for a micro case but not a big issue. Controller is hot glued to a plastic case that has two-sided tape to mount it in place. The hot glue didn't even make to the install, I had to re-glue it.

Overall Review: It's just what I was looking for, it works just fine and is very low cost. I read another review saying this will not shut your fans down all the way, Why would you want to? You better keep some air flowing or else! I would deffinately buy this again if I need one.

TORNADO IT IS

Vantec Tornado 80mm Double Ball Bearing High Air Flow Case Fan - Model TD8038H
Vantec Tornado 80mm Double Ball Bearing High Air Flow Case Fan - Model TD8038H

Pros: Vantech Tornado's definately move the air through your case. Installed two of these as exaust fans and they blew the paint of of my wall.

Cons: Way to noisy for me unless I don't want to here my wife running her lips.

Overall Review: Buy a fan controller so you tune them down.
