... Grill? BBQ?...

APEVIA G-120MM 120mm Fan Grill
APEVIA G-120MM 120mm Fan Grill

Pros: Come on... what can you expect of this but the fan grill? For the price you cant buy a better 120mm grill. Wait! You get 3 of them!!! The paint job is superb and no chips whatsoever! Paint job? Read cons.

Cons: Be careful and read descriptions for every item you buy because grills are BLACK in color. I wanted black for my "all black and red" build and I have planned to paint them myself... BUT again: the picture shows silver color. Only one tiny note tells you, in the description, that it is black. I was happily surprised saving time on my part. Other than that...

Overall Review: Superb, outstanding and surprising quality for the price. I will definitely buy more in the future. None come close to the paint job quality and finish. In fact I would charge more for it for the mere finish, so pleasant to the eye (shiny)... New egg delivery = one of a kind. Just like the product.

Great Set

SENNHEISER PC360 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Headset
SENNHEISER PC360 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Headset

Pros: The product is ultimate. This is my second set of those and I can not complain. I ordered it under different account for another family member so please don't comment "you dont even own it" Get it if you are a gamer and still want very good music and movie sound. There is no better set for gaming. I went thru A LOT in 20+ years. Just do the google research if you need to know more about the set. Everything else in the product's details. I am writing this to warn you about cons of shipping method.

Cons: The carrier is the evil. Choose to pay more for the shipping because the 4-7 business days option is shipped by the worst of all: FEDEX. I live in Brooklyn. The package was sent from Edison, New Jersey (Monday). Simply said: 45 minutes drive. The package went thru fascinating process of being shipped in unusual fashion described in other thoughts.

Overall Review: The process: Edison, NJ Allentown, PA Brooklyn, NY Allentown, PA Edison, NJ Brooklyn, NY Information sent to USPS, package picked up Brooklyn, NY USPS facility and 24 hours of in transit/out for delivery. What is the point of moving it so many times? Now, it most likely will come damaged and will cost me time for RMA. And newegg will have to go thru unnecessary process. To newegg customer service: Please do not use fedex. Every time I order with you and see fedex I cry. I order for about 10 years from you and fedex has always failed me. Optional: mark the carrier when we have shipping options and/or add an option to check preferred carriers in orders placed or in account preferences. In this case we can eliminate fedex or USPS. Thank you

MONSTER

Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD1000DHTZ 1TB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive
Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD1000DHTZ 1TB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: I own several velociraptors since 2007. Every single one is a monster and working (only had 2 DOA's in 2008, summer, replaced in 5 days by newegg - hands down) in 5 years. They are used 24/7 in constant stress. No failures, no errors (if any it is my ram...). This new 1TB monster has enormous performance. 64 megs on board? 10k? 1TB? $269? Stop reading and buy it. It is almost as good as SSD in gaming (this is what I will be primary using this unit for). I recommend it over SSD because what is 11 sec load on BF3 with WD VR vs 6 sec load with SSD? Most of the players wont be on the map before you anyway!!! Boot is fast, games run fast, almost everything is instant (CS4, CAD with little lag). I see no point for spending $700 on SSD having 512GB and lifespan of ~2 years (not 24/7) when this monster WILL work at least 5 years (most likely ~10) 24/7. I have WD drives that are almost 10 years old and they still work great. Gaming rig on a budget? This drive plus whatever you choose. GG GL HF

Cons: Gets kinda hot in high stress over many hours, but in case like Mountain Mods U2UFO it is reasonably cool. Make sure to have a fan cooling it! I also recommend a HDD bay/add on cooler on top if you stress it 24/7... or you can always go custom WC if your dad is Bill Gates...

Overall Review: I would like to see these drives for $199.99 by this time. Few days ago they were $299.99 but newegg has a promo now. The price per GB is EXTREMELY high in comparison to other drives. Yes it is smaller. Yes it is faster. Yes it is more advanced. But 27 cents per GB is a high price today. HELL it was 30 cents per GB not 2 weeks ago!!!!!! I wanted to run RAID but the price of lower storage VR's is a joke! I wanted 4x 250 VR's but... If I aimed for lower storage I would go for SSD's for the same GB/price and run raid... but SSD's lifespan.... I will wait and get few more of these for raid when the price drops. I do not stop anyone from buying it now because 1 x VR will destroy your games! Enough speed and storage to have everything fly, if your pc can keep up that means. 2 x VR's in raid = high end SSD's speed in games and a lil less in pro programs, say less than 20%. Tested myself. Satisfaction guaranteed.

Superb

Tuniq TX-2 Cooling Thermal Compound
Tuniq TX-2 Cooling Thermal Compound

Pros: Better, larger/more tim, cheaper than AS 5 tim. On par to "Freeze" tim. Almost as good as TX-3 but better than TX-4. Night and day vs CF2. Highly recommended.

Cons: Thick but still ok to spread, just take your time for line/grain technique won't work. Also, it will not let your CPU cook for you. It gets 2 cold... wait... is it a con???

Overall Review: Cheap, no curing time, outstanding results IF applied correctly. DON'T put a lot if you use Ivy Bridge because it may actually get your temps higher than expected! Ivy has tim on the core/inside the silver heat spreader vs soldered one piece heat spreader as SB, core duo, quads 775 etc has... Be careful there. If done correctly with high end cooler like phanteks/noctua and good case w/ airflow you will not bake a cake with it on 4.6-4.8 24/7 in gaming.

What to say?

Silverstone FF121 120mm Fan Grille and Filter Kit
Silverstone FF121 120mm Fan Grille and Filter Kit

Pros: An expensive piece of plastic that does the job very well. Can fit inside or outside of the case if you care for looks. I would recommend inside. Why? Read CONS. It does lower the fan performance but you know it already! The finish is 3.5/5 stars but the filter mesh is 6/5. Great product. It comes with 4 black screws for your fan (painted black, not anodized, paint easily chips).

Cons: I would expect at least 2 of them for the price. This or add $3 and sell as a pack of 3 filters. Also, the square part outside of the round-mesh-covered-over fan-part is scratched on all 4 (four) filters. It is going to bug you if you install it outside and you are building a high end custom rig, but as I mentioned above - it perfectly fits inside of the case on top of the fan. The packaging was great, it is the product's quality... Once again: EXPENSIVE for what you get but superior mesh to other brands. Choose your own.

Overall Review: Quite expensive for a piece of plastic...
