Most Favorable Review

great product... horrible activation issues

Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit
Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit

Pros: have had windows 7 pro 64 on now four machines during the past 8 years or so... it's so good i am one who will not do the free upgrade to windows 10; hence buying this new copy for another build..

Cons: the little sticker that covers the product key has no instructions for removal... it looks just like it is a little paper and tape piece to be removed with a fingernail tip.. it isn't !!!! .. by the time i had tried to remove about half of it, it came to me that it is a 'scratcher' and not a removable sticker.. try scratching it with a nail or such first... mine is now so messed up i cannot get an activation done on it...

Overall Review: to me this seems more like one more ploy by ms to cause people problems with continuing to go with windows 7 instead of upgrading to windows 10... my older copies had the install disc inside a sturdy plastic container with the product key clearly visible and all that was wrapped in a hardboard sleeve... this time there is only the cardboard slip with the disc tossed inside with no protection or anything.. and the product key, as mentioned is all of 5/8" x 1/4" and hidden under that stupid 'tag'... there are no real online links to getting help with this issue, and i've had to ask newegg what i might be able to do.. i only hope it will be easier than i can imagine.... microsoft- you may be successful in getting some people to just accept moving everything to windows 10 as you'd like.. what you are doing with me is forcing me to start to learn operating systems other than windows ..period !

be quiet! Pure Wings 2 120mm PWM

Pros: yes, they are quiet

Cons: but, to me, not much airflow..

Overall Review: i'm sorry but i'd like to be able to say i'm impressed with these fans.. with the low noise, yes... with the airflow, no... i've got three of these running full speed in the front of my corsair air 540 and three inches away i can barely feel anything.. stuck an old rosewill in and yes, twice as loud and twice the airflow at 2000 rpm instead of 1600... sure wish this case would fit a 200 mm... my old haf 912 has much more air going through it..

nice even lighting..

CORSAIR Lighting Node PRO CL-9011109-WW, RGB Lighting Controller with Individually Addressable RGB LED Strips
CORSAIR Lighting Node PRO CL-9011109-WW, RGB Lighting Controller with Individually Addressable RGB LED Strips

Pros: not too bad to run and set up.. i have a corsair supercase and this puts out enough light and certainly more than enough patterns and colors.. whatever lighting you may want to do you can do with this..

Cons: i unfortunately got a bad strip and it took a bit to get to support.. that seems to be the case most everywhere these days.. the guys there wanted to do an rma but i didn't want to pull out all those carefully bundled wires again and asked if they could just send me a replacement strip.. and today i got a complete expansion set with four new strips and cables in the mail !

Overall Review: support is where, to me, a company shows it's worth; and corsair has passed with flying colors.. a good choice all the way around...

works fine, but..

Atech Flash Technology PRO-88 USB 3.1 gen 1 Professional 5.25" Media Card Reader / Hub

Pros: fits every card i or you should need to use it for..

Cons: but... the ONLY way you will get this to work is to attach it directly to a standard usb 3.0 socket.. on my board there is no such socket inside the case, only on the i/o panel outside the case..

Overall Review: so basically a 'leave the side of your case open', or maybe get a pci-e card that has the correct socket... and then you have another cable going right across that sweet looking motherboard.... i really don't want to be drilling holes in my corsair 900d case...

just what i wanted..

Thermaltake Commander F6 RGB LCD 6 Channel Single 5.25” Bay Fan Controller AC-024-BN1NAN-A1

Overall Review: i have a corsair 900d 'super case' and have eight fans to control.. i have four fans in the lower intake area that i break up into 2 x 2 fans for the controller; that gives me six areas to control.. i had a bitfenix recon and a nzxt as well.. neither gave me the total control i wanted as to setting the specific speeds of the fans.. this one does the job by means of a mechanical 'switch' with feedback by digital screen.. i get instant info and can control my fans for just the right combination of cooling and noise... very happy with this one.. (i use my mb and software to monitor temps so am not using the included temp sensors.)

Overall Review: i would not hesitate to buy this product again or anything from this maker.. very impressed.. came with a full on gasket as well as rubber inserts for the screws that came it.. also two (two!) extensions sleeved of different lengths.. spiffy packaging, a well made product, plus all the extras included; blades are even coated for no dust buildup... using it with a home made mount blowing extra case air over my x570 taichi southbridge.. drops the temp from 62 c to 52 c and doesn't look too bad in this corsair 900d case... let's me relax a bit with the high sb temps on these boards..
