Love G-Skill? I Do
Pros: Got These on a Gigabyte GA-770TA-UD3 w/ 720 BE and Xigmatek CPU Cooler, everything plays well together, ie heatsinks clear the cooler, and this RAM is FAST.
Cons: Had to manually set timings to get advertised 7 7 7 21 Trc 27 1T, not worth an egg but worth a look if you order these for a build, check cpu-z or your bios and make sure you are taking advantage of the speed you paid for!
Overall Review: My first purchase of a Shell Shocker, really glad I caught this deal as I was about to get two 2 x 2 GB G-Skill 8 8 8 24 kits that would have cost more... now I have two slots open (as if I'll need more than 8 GB...)
Pros: quiet, blue
Cons: the description says these fans are 25 cfm BUT the package, which has the exact same model #, says they are 16 CFM and 16 DBa. buyer beware, website incorrectly lists specs. i bought 4 and they all worked on arrival though, not worth sending back.
Overall Review: fine if 16 cfm is what you need
Pros: I don't have side fans installed on my NZXT Beta Evo, but I'm pretty sure they would clear if I had installed. Keeps my Phenom II 720 BE (running 4 cores @ 3.3ghz) nice and cool. Clears my Ripjaws RAM, pushes air straight toward my 140mm top exhaust fans.
Cons: Instructions are vague... but it isn't rocket science if you are the least bit mechanically inclined.
Overall Review: Saw several comments about the spoiler, but if you slide it onto the non-fan side between the lowest two fans it clicks in and stays put.
Pros: - Price - Durable black finish inside and out - Mobo tray allows for easy cable management - Tons of airflow, if you buy some fans - Easy to use attachments for 5.25" and rails for 3.5" drives
Cons: My only gripe about this case is the front panel. It pops off almost too easily, which becomes a problem be cause the wires to the power & reset switches aren't removeable, and are hotglued in several spots to the back of the panel. During my build I replaced the front 120mm fan to coordinate my theme (white led fans, stock fan is blue) and when i popped open the panel, tried to prop it up, but as soon as I turned around it tipped over, stretching the wires and pulling one of the hot glue point loose. Just something to look out for, not worth an egg IMHO.
Overall Review: Can't beat the value with a stick....
Clunky but works
Pros: This mic has works well with skype, can pivot up and down and didn't cost me too much dough.
Cons: I have already knocked it off my desk twice, the extra long stem means that if you bump the mic end the stand will slide or flip easily. Really would be better if the stand was weighted or made of something a little more solid.
Overall Review: All in all I'm a happy video chatter, now if google+ would just jet me in...
