Intel Intel BunnyPeople Gift
Intel Intel BunnyPeople Gift

Pros: does anyone really buy these? no their gifts from intel lol, when you buy a oem version of their cpu you get one of these. they subtract the price of it (19.99) from the cpu but add this to your card. so what can i say it was free? lol

Cons: its kind of useless

Overall Review: would have been better to just subtract the 19.99 and not send this its kind of useless.

SYBA Connectland Notebook Cooler Pad + 4 Ports USB 2.0 Hub SY-NBCP-4U
SYBA Connectland Notebook Cooler Pad + 4 Ports USB 2.0 Hub SY-NBCP-4U

Pros: This product provides 4 usb ports (not fully powered) and 3 cooling fans. this thing doesn't use a ac outlet like some cooling pads do it just runs on the usb cord.

Cons: The usb hub isn't fully powered, meaning each usb port does not get the same amount of power that your original usb port provides. this would require a ac adapter. Because of this many products simply will not run with this such as mice, keyboards, and unpowered external hard drives. Also the fans have a major flaw, they come out of the cooling pad and scrape againist the case after some use, so it generates loud noise. also after it scrapes againist the case enough it burns up the motor powering the fans. right now mine only has 1 active fan because the other 2 burnt up. i cut the grids away from the fans and took the fans out and reanchored them with a small dab of glue. Also the usb hub the ports will actually get pushed inside the case because its not mounted properly.

Overall Review: Overall this product isn't worth the money in the long run your best bet would be to get a cooling pad that has a ac plug to provide your hub with full power so you can hook anything up to it.

StarTech.com External Notebook CPU Cooling Fan NBFAN
StarTech.com External Notebook CPU Cooling Fan NBFAN

Pros: it does pull the hot air out of the laptop.

Cons: It does actually make your laptop generate slightly more heat because it now has to power that usb port the fan is taking.

Overall Review: Okay, this product does do its job, when most people fail to understand is, the vent they typically attach this too already has a fan inside the laptop to push or suck air in or out. so the effectiveness of this product is somewhat limited to the inside fan of the laptop. it does allow the fan to spin faster and thus move more air, but it also makes the laptop generate slightly more heat because it powers the usb port that the thing is using. also take not that the way some laptops are designed, this thing could be taking the hot air from the exhaust vent and pushing it wards the intake vent on the laptop (very bad idea). with the light isn't on the fan is pretty much useless. so turn the led light on with that little button. also if your laptop is over heating you sound look into cleaning your internal system of dust, and possibly replacing the fans with more effiencent ones or reapplying the cpu heatsink with fresh thermal gel.

Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G
Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G

Pros: Very good solution, works nicely for lowering cpu temperatures. my old cpu had thermal paste and it really sucked. i took the stuff off cleaned it with some rubbing alcohol and a q-tip and put this one. and it works like wonder. since then I've used nothing but arctic silver on my cpus. I currently have 5 laptops and 3 desktops each one has arctic silver on their cpus. I even use the stuff for my computer building and repairing business. this small syringe can supply anywhere from 8-15 cpus. I have 2 containers just chilling in my frigerator.

Cons: no cpu based instructions (for appling) comes with the item, however you can find out how much to apply by going to http://www.arcticsilver.com/arctic_silver_instructions.htm

RAZER Barracuda HP-1 Razer HD-DAI(High Definition-Dedicated Audio Interface) Connector Circumaural Gaming Headphones
RAZER Barracuda HP-1 Razer HD-DAI(High Definition-Dedicated Audio Interface) Connector Circumaural Gaming Headphones

Pros: Very nice gaming headset. feels comfortable even after long hours of play. Very useful in using sound for locating enemies in fps games like americas army.

Cons: The sound in one ear has a tendacy of dieing, i believe its the vibration of the speakers causing the speaker to break the solder connecting the wire. however you can return them to newegg or contact razer directly and they will replace them (if its been under a year). The boom mic could be a little better, without mic boost its hard for people to hear me on teamspeak.

Overall Review: I'm a proud owner of 2 razer barracuda headsets, a razer lachesis mouse, and a razer megalodon headset :-D
