Highest Quality I've EVER SEEN !

Case Fans
Case Fans

Pros: Out of every fan I've ever seen, owned, or held this fan is by far the highest quality fan ever ! It moves a decent amount of air while being completely quiet (and I mean completely). Sleeved cable is high quality and looks great. If you need a fan to put on your CPU cooler or Radiator then stop looking and put this in your cart, however if you need a good case fan look elsewhere this fan was not meant to move a serious amount of air but to build static pressure while trying to move air through something, go to the Noctura website to read more about how it works!

Cons: None that I've found! for those that say it's pricey remember you get what you pay for !!!!!

Overall Review: Now as for the color allot of people say it's ugly or odd, and I won't disagree. But here is my thought on this idea cause people complain about color in allot of reviews from Motherboards to Memory and so on: "Don't you buy you parts for what they can do (the features) or for how they look????

Great card, Bad Program

AMD 100-715331 TV Wonder 650 - High Definition Personal Video Recorder for PC
AMD 100-715331 TV Wonder 650 - High Definition Personal Video Recorder for PC

Pros: 650 Card is good no problems with install, Great picture, good sound.

Cons: Software that came with it sucks, don't use the caclyst media center software, it caused a jumpy picture and sound.

Overall Review: Download beyond Tv software, it works great. it has more options and just works better than anything else I tried.

Awesome Fan

AeroCool Shark 140mm Black Edition 140mm Case cooler
AeroCool Shark 140mm Black Edition 140mm Case cooler

Pros: Quiet, moves a bunch of air, great looking fan - LED's on the Blue version are nice if you need one with LED's

Cons: What are you Kidding ?

Overall Review: I have a Corsair 800D case and I replaced the Stock 140MM fans (bottom and back fans) with 1 of these and 1 of the black versions without LED's. They helped lower the Graphics card temps by about 5 degrees C. I have no complaints and would most defiantly buy again. I will be buying 3 of the 120MM versions soon for the top of my case.

Pros: This is an update to an earlier review called first impressions: Now that I've had a chance to play with this chip a bit more I'm still very impressed I've been able to max out settings in games that I couldn't before because it would max out the processor. Web pages load faster, Videos play better the list could go on and on. I almost built an entirely new computer around an Intel I7 950 X58 based system. Now I'm very glad I decided to go with this it is more than ample for my needs right now and it saved me so much money.

Cons: None, none, none, none, none, none !!!!!! Oh did I mention NONE !!!!!!!

Overall Review: It also overclocks nicely ! Oh and as I stated in my earlier review as soon as I knew there was nothing wrong with it I pulled the stock Heatsink and fan and put my Zalman back on, it droped my temps 10 C. It idles around 35 - 38 C tops out around 45 C.

Amazing Drive

Pros: If you're looking for a 2 TB drive and you don't want to pay $180 or more for it, then what are you waiting for grab this. This drive even though it is a 5400 RPM drive it seems that the 32 MB cache makes up for it because I've not seen the transfer speeds drop below 135 MB/sec. Before this I was running 3 500 GB Seagate 7200 RPM drives used as storage for music and movies/TV shows. when watching movies and tv shows sometimes they would glitch or hic-up since moving everything over to this drive I've only had one such hic-up and turns out my Anti-virus software was running a full scan and it is probably what cuased that one.

Cons: It's not a 7200 RPM drive (but with how it performs WHO CARES).

Overall Review: It cost alot less than any 7200 RPM dirve in the same performance class. You could say it's the AMD solution of the storage world.
