Nice piece of gear
Pros: Solid construction - just feeling this thing you can tell that some quality went into it
Cons: Won't fit my board!! Agggh!! No screw holes for it (using an older Socket-A AMD), had to RMA it.
Overall Review: Luckily Newegg has an AWESOME return policy and helpful staff. No problem. Will probably just have to buy a beefier 60mm fan for my current heatsink. Sad, I really, really like this Zalman.
Burned by Belkin
Pros: Kept my laptop cool for a while
Cons: Umm..the simple act of plugging in the power supply made the outlet FALL INSIDE THE UNIT, rendering it useless. Maybe Belkin should have had the foresight to reinforce an area of high stress (i.e. something that is going to be unplugged and plugged in repeatedly) with more than a tiny glob of glue.
Overall Review: Can anyone manufacture a laptop cooler that isn't pure garbage?
Pros: Works, and works well.
Cons: My Gigabyte GA-7n400 Rev.2 mobo has an nForce 2 Chipset, and hates when I try to run 4 ram modules in dual channel. Sadly I have to send this ram back to newegg and exchange it for a single 1GB module. Hardly the ram's fault - just thought someone else running an NForce2 board would want to know about this.
Overall Review: Newegg's customer service and return policy are both top notch. 5-stars.
Just got one of these
Pros: I love this little gadget. Keeps my ram frosty (and even keeps my processor a little bit cooler given the proximity of the ram to the CPU) and the blue lights are soothing
Cons: hmm, for some reason the sides are angled. Haven't figured out the purpose of this, not a big deal however, fits the ram just fine. Running 2x512MB Pc2700 modules.
Overall Review: I don't overclock, but I imagine someone who is into that sort of thing could get a real kick out of this product
