Awesome

ZALMAN CNPS 9500 AM2 2 Ball CPU Cooling Fan/Heatsink
ZALMAN CNPS 9500 AM2 2 Ball CPU Cooling Fan/Heatsink

Pros: Dropped the average temperature from 105F-115F down to about 90F-98F. It also dropped gaming temperatures from 125F-135F down to about 110F-118F

Cons: It took me a while to figure out how to put the clamp in sideways, I thought it looked impossible because the instructions kind of sucked. But I got it working, not a huge con.

Overall Review: I first purchased the Titan Vanessa L-Type. For my system setup it actually made the core temperature higher after choosing the Zalman I will never look back.

Most Critical Review

Arrived doa

EVGA GeForce FX 5200 128MB DDR PCI Video Card 128-P1-N309-LX

Pros: I heard good things about eVGA.

Cons: It arrived DOA, eVGA technical support was pretty awesome.

Overall Review: I would get another eVGA product based on things that i have heard, just my luck about this one.

Am I still able to write this review?

mushkin XP-650 650W ATX12V SLI Ready Modular  Power Supply
mushkin XP-650 650W ATX12V SLI Ready Modular Power Supply

Pros: Currently powering an Radeon R9 270X. I bought this back in 2006. It has lasted me this long and is still going. Only recently has it started to act up where it won't power on. I have to disconnect it from the power for up to an hour before it loses its surge and allows me to power it on. Time to upgrade.

Cons: not really any. It has lasted me almost 9 years and it is powering a Radeon R9 270X for about 9 months now. Time to upgrade. Amazing PSU.. no regrets.

Overall Review: Even though no one will ever read this review i feel compelled to write one. I don't really know how long PSU's are generally made to last but I've had this one for almost 9 years now. I honestly never thought about how long I've had it until it began to act up.

Great, but Live Update killed one.

Pros: I purchased two from newegg last October and untill yesterday they were working excellent.

Cons: I installed the Live Update software that came packaged with the CD that looks for Firmware updates and installs them for you. The software installed a firmware update on one of my drives, had me restart and this became a continuous loop that kept trying to install the update and restarting my computer. Now the dvd burner has a constant LED light, the reset button does not work and I have just sent Samsung an RMA request.

Overall Review: Hopefully Samsung gets me a replacement, aside from that I have not had any issues so far burning or playing on these drives.

Great speakers.

JBL DUETAL 12 Watts 2.0 Speakers
JBL DUETAL 12 Watts 2.0 Speakers

Pros: Great speaker, very good looking too. Sound quality is really good for the price.

Cons: Nothing really other than they could have offered a bigger variety of colors. I think they only offered white and silver, black and gray would have been nice too.

Not happy with it.

BYTECC BT-380 U2 BLACK Aluminum 3.5" IDE USB 2.0 External Enclosure
BYTECC BT-380 U2 BLACK Aluminum 3.5" IDE USB 2.0 External Enclosure

Pros: I purchased two of them, one of them I haven't thrown away yet.

Cons: One of them completely fried two of my hardrives after 4 months of working properly. I left it on overnight wich I sometimes do and this morning it was sizzling hot, hotter than I ever felt a hardrive get but the disks werent spinning, I didn't feel any vibration. My computer did not ackowledge a hard drive either. I placed that drive as a slave to another PC and the PC did not recognize it. I tested a master hardrive of another machine, when i connected that other HD to the case it did not spin, when I placed it back to the original PC it still did not spin. Two of my hardrives are now dead =( lucily I am still under warranty for both of them.

Overall Review: I ruled out the possibility of the powersurge, I have 1 PC, two monitors, a plantronics headset, and a 4 port ethernet swicth all connected to the same surge proctector and they are working fine.
