Amazing Card

HT  OMEGA eClaro 7.1 Channels 24-bit 192KHz PCI Express x1 Interface Sound Card
HT OMEGA eClaro 7.1 Channels 24-bit 192KHz PCI Express x1 Interface Sound Card

Pros: Best sounding audio card ever. Beats the $600 or $700 cards hands down. Period. I've been an audio professional since 1978. This baby is incredible. Just buy one, and try it. You will be amazed. My ears can hear distortion all it takes is about 3 to 5 minutes, and it's turn that crud off! With a quality sound system this baby is clean! The capacitors are big (a good thing) but it fits on my mother board, a little tight, but no problems. I had no trouble with the drivers and the card and software work well. I would never recommend something highly that I did not believe in. Try it this is great.

Cons: None, Wish I had stock in the company :)

Nice Monitor

ASUS VX238H-W 23" 1920 x 1080 2 x HDMI, D-Sub, DVI-D (Via HDMI) Built-in Speakers LCD Monitor

Pros: Clear crisp display. 1920 x 1080 HD. 3 inches bigger than my older display. I was surprised how much more I could see with the larger size. Really helps my old eyes :) I am totally happy with my purchase.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Price and quality. Can't complain. The little built in speakers sound good. They would work in a business location. For music or game lovers, not so much.

After adjustment, It's good

Pros: Well designed. After original installation there was lots of noise and vibration. It was really bad. So I got mad and just unpluged the fan. After a few days I wanted to relook this thing. I pulled the covers of my case and pulled the HD mount and gave it a good look. Decided to take out 2 of the fan mounting screws, and made sure the fan was sitting level with no frame distortion. I then put it back in the case and fired every thing back up. Well... It was perfectly quiet, no vibration. Still not sure it keeps my Samsung SSD drive that much cooler. Maybe a SSD drive just runs at the temp it is going to run at. My case has plenty of air flow. But for the price of the fan cooled mount, who knows. A good steel mount. Fit well. Needed adjustment to get rid of fan noise and vibration. Good deal for the price! Took a bit of work though.

Cons: Took a LOT of work to get it to work right.

Overall Review: In all fairness, it is a good product. But shouldn't have to work with it so much to make it right.

Great little fan!

EVERCOOL FAN-EC3007M12CA 30mm Case Cooling Fan

Pros: Blows lots of air. Very quiet.

Cons: Mounting screws supplied are worthless.

Overall Review: This is a great little fan! I am using it to cool the PCH chip on my Intel DZ77SL-50K MB. This chip runs hot. Usually around 48 to 49 degrees C. Under load it would go up to 54C. To give Intel some credit, the original equipment CPU fan supplied with the 3570K that I have would blow air over the PCH heat sink and there would be bo problem. But I have installed a Cooler Master Seidon water CPU cooler, so no air being blown on the PCH chip. This little fan totally performs as advertised. Very quiet and moves a lot of air. Mounting it on the Intel heat sink was impossible as shipped. The supplied screws barely stuck through the fan holes. I got lucky and had some rubber standoff thingies that came with another fan, and was able to mount the fan to the Intel heat sink. This did two things. 1: able to mount the fan. 2: the rubber, and the distance between the fan and the heat sink made it totally quiet. Can't hear the fan at all. So... Now the PCH chip stays at 44C. Ok, so it goes up to 46C running the Intel Burn Test. The CM Seidon water cooler keeps the CPU temp at 66C maximum. So, I'm happy. If I find a source for the rubber standoff thingies I will update this post.
