Most Favorable Review

Nice piece of gear

ZALMAN CNPS7000B-ALCU 92mm 2 Ball Cooling Fan
ZALMAN CNPS7000B-ALCU 92mm 2 Ball Cooling Fan

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.

Most Critical Review

Burned by Belkin

BELKIN Laptop Cooling Stand with Wave Design, 11 1/2 x 12 1/2 x 1 3/8, White F5L001
BELKIN Laptop Cooling Stand with Wave Design, 11 1/2 x 12 1/2 x 1 3/8, White F5L001

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?

Solid Ram

Kingston ValueRAM 1GB 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 533 (PC2 4200) Laptop Memory Model KVR533D2S4/1G
Kingston ValueRAM 1GB 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 533 (PC2 4200) Laptop Memory Model KVR533D2S4/1G

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.

Awesome Power Supply

Rosewill RP600V2-S-SL 600W ATX12V v2.01 SLI Ready   Power Supply
Rosewill RP600V2-S-SL 600W ATX12V v2.01 SLI Ready Power Supply

Pros: Runs everything in my machine in a stable, consistent manner. Blue lights rock. Fan control speed rocks. Blasts cool air across my mobo. This PSU rocks.

Cons: hmm, all the extra wires! hard to find a place to put em!

Overall Review: this PSU blows away my 420w Hercules.

Rocks

Kingston ValueRAM 1GB 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 533 (PC2 4200) Laptop Memory Model KVR533D2S4/1G
Kingston ValueRAM 1GB 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 533 (PC2 4200) Laptop Memory Model KVR533D2S4/1G

Pros: Popped this bad boy into my Sony Vaio VGN-SZ440 and it fired right up. Difference was immediately noticeable - and to think, Sony wanted $599 to do the same job. Hahahahaha!!

Cons: None!

Just got one of these

CoolIT SYSTEMS RAM FAN
CoolIT SYSTEMS RAM FAN

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
