ARCTIC COOLING Arctic Fan 9 (AF9) 92mm Case Cooling Fan

Overall Review: great product, must buy for any case imo.

Most Critical Review

PCI slot cooler

Thermaltake A2426 80mm Blue LED PCI SLOT Blue LED FAN
Thermaltake A2426 80mm Blue LED PCI SLOT Blue LED FAN

Pros: lights, not too bright, but lights up adequately. took down the gpu temp, by 2/3 celcius.

Cons: not strong enough fan. not long enough to completely cover the gfx card fan. didnt make much of a difference.

Overall Review: after i bought it, i realized that the stock fan pushes air out to its components from the grilles. buy some vga ram heatsinks for around the same price.

Really nice after update

Pros: It has all of the features you would ask for. It has lcd poster which helps determine if there is a major problem. You should know what your buying with this much money, so im not going to list all of the good feats. power and reset on mobo, to turn it on for the first time.

Cons: It didnt recognize my cpu. temps were 100 C!!! noot, but still. I didnt feel safe with it even reading that. all i needed was a bios update and bam, cpu recognition prob. gone, cpu TEMP prob. gone! Great board. You really dont need the power and reset button after you get everything running.

Overall Review: When I first turned it on, I got scared b/c it was on for 2 sec., then shut off for like 4, then restarted! This was my first ever build so i was like wow.Update thru the flash 2 thingy inside the bios. It is simple and easy. All you do is get the file saved onto a flash drive, and load the files thru the flash 2 thing. You really dont need the power and reset button after you get everything running. my poster said cpu init but that didnt stop it from working. I think it means cpu initializing. but whatever it is my e 8400 worked fine. I got it to o/v to 3.7 ghz, havent pushed any harder, but i am pretty sure it will do 4.0 + ghz. The crazy o/c option only goes to 3.6 because the "limit" on the mobo's fsb is 1600. 400*9=3.6 ghz! If you install the ai suite ull c that the fsb is in "danger" zone. so the mobo doesnt want to go past that zone. idk y my temps, seem kind of high, I have an e 8400 cooler by xigmatek s1283. temps are at 37 , but when tortured only goes to 46 and freezes there

Great card!

Pros: GREAT price, couldnt beleive it!I got mine from newegg, for 255 free shipping and all, in one business day for the 3 day guarentee!! It looks really nice, performs really nice, what is there not to like about this card?! VisionTek put on a sticker claiming thru another company that this card outperforms 9800 gtx oc by 40%! The card is a great size, it fits in my 900 perfectly. It does feel a little heavy, but then again upgrading from a 7600 GT y would it not feel so different.

Cons: My computer looks wierd with a red VGA?? Feels kind of heavy, but then again, it may just be me.

Overall Review: The sticker does also show the comparison of this card and a gtx 260. They perform about the same, only 1 frame off. You really wont see the difference between one frame! It's a great card, just wait for the price to come down and it will be a STEAL! Its an ATi premium graphics card, the best they have to offer, and at such a low price, y not get it now?Why wait?

ARCTIC Freezer 7 Pro - Compact Multi-Compatible Tower CPU Cooler | 92 mm PWM Fan | for AMD AM4 and Intel 115x CPU | Recommended up to 115 W TDP

Pros: Cools my PD 825 alot cooler!! it used to idle at 45c but now idles at around 36c! load temps went from 53c to 41c! Thermal paste is great. Looks nice in the case.The fan is almost inaudible, making it a great silent pc option for a heatsink

Cons: fins were damaged, when recieved, at the bottom. when i installed the push pins to the side of the copper, my hand kept on hitting the fins, denting it even further. the push pin design is horrible imo. I pressed soooo hard but it would not go down.idk y, but the hole for the pins on my motherboard are for screws. and the push pin would not get in there. so i decided to screw the push pin design, and use my old cooler's screws to mount it down!I ripped the screws off of the mount for the heatsink and used those(from the old heatsink). It isnt so pretty but it works now. also, it looks kind of ugly until its in the case, where the temps show it's beauty!

Overall Review: if it had sturdier fins, and better installation design, i would have given this 5 eggs. maybe arctic cooling will use some of the hints ppl give them to make their new coolers even better!

RAIDMAX SMILODON ATX-612WBP Black 1.0mm SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Foldout MB Computer Case With 500W Power Supply

Pros: ...

Cons: ...

Overall Review: All i want to ask is y does the specs say the case has 2 120mm fans, but the pictures say the rear fan is 80 mm? Im not tryin to bring the ratin down by givin it a four but thats what i think it is.
