Engenius odd Mixture #3

EnGenius ESR900 Xtra Range Dual Band N900 Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab
EnGenius ESR900 Xtra Range Dual Band N900 Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab

Pros: This is the final review on my part...the firmware update from 1.01 to 1.10 has resolved the slow page load issues I was experiencing. The router has zero issues with stability, the machine never restarts unless I perform a reset and al connections have been stable and reliable. Qos appears to be working just fine, youtube videos load immediately and playback without stuttering or dropping frames as far as I can tell. Range is excellent and better than my old Netgear N600 router by a fair distance. Signal strength is excellent and throughput is either the same or better than my old N600 as well. This router performs flawlessly now and has no other issues I can root out. Updates are quick, timers display remaining time on reboot, reset, and are much appreciated. This router has an odd mix of tools available and in a rather weird drop down menu style left panel on the gui page. These tools are ok to use if you have some skill sets with networking but could get you into some trouble if you do not know what you are doing.

Cons: No cons I can find now except one quirk! Upon performing the firmware update...my 2 blue LED's for 2.4 and 5 Ghz wireless radios both flash in unison and continuously. I can't tell which one has traffic on it nor when the traffic is moving through the router. Prior to the firmware flash...both LED's were illuminated when the respective radio was enabled and only flashed when traffic was present...now both flash together all the time. This is frustrating when trying to determine who is on your router and what band they are on unless you log in to see what devices are connected and even then, you may have connected devices without descriptors to ascertain whom is connected.

Overall Review: All in all, this is a very nice router that has excellent range, performance is reliable and stable, connections are rock solid and stable and the router does enhance/extend the range for the 2.4 ghz wireless by about 15% range wise and about 10% on the 5 GHz radios compared to my old Netgear N600 WNDR 3700 v1 and with a reduced price at newegg.com...at $76 this is a bargain/steal. I have no problem recommending this for anybody wanting to upgrade the current network hardware, the shape lends itself to ceiling or wall mount and is small enough to allow to sit on an unused corner of a file cabinet or desk! This is a solid entry for the affordable networking hardware for end users in a home or small business that makes upgrading a positive experience that provides tangible evidence that your upgrade was worth it.

Awesome Product, Very Easy To Utilize And No Setup Required!

CM Storm SF-17 - Gaming Laptop Cooling Stand with 180 mm Fan and 4 Ergonomic Height Settings
CM Storm SF-17 - Gaming Laptop Cooling Stand with 180 mm Fan and 4 Ergonomic Height Settings

Pros: Fits 17" Laptop Easily, Fan is Whisper Quiet even on High, Ports are all located on the Right Side and accesible with NO issues, love the power plug being mini-usb allows for wall power OR runs off of USB port on Laptop...Red Color in front is pleasant and the entire Cooler is HEAVY...Very Solid and Heavy Duty Rubber All Over the Unit especially the Corners. Does not Skid around and sits absolutely solid on desk top. Unit feels Solid and Professionally put together...not a cheap plasticky feel at all. Moves a lot of Air and cools the entire bottom of my laptop...Purrfect!!!!!

Cons: None at all..meh...not free?

Overall Review: Absolutely recommend this unit...I'm moving from a much lighter metal cooler and this beats the old one all to pieces. I Would/Will purchase this Item again...Absolutely recommend to anybody looking for a Solid Professionally manfuctured product that does exactly what it says it does and is a product that feels like it will last a very long time...makes TCO very feasible and eases my mind about temps as they have come down nicely...moved from 46C at idle to 42/3C idle now...under useage...moved from 56C to 52C and under heavy load...moved from 79C to 74C...those are Awesome numbers all the wa around and provides longer life for all my Hardware...can't beat that with a club...Awesome product and Awesome Service from Newegg as Always! Not been disappointed from the Egg Ever in a decade and a half of purchasing from this site...it's the ONLY site I use for my PC parts, builds, software and on and on...the EGG ROCKS! Respectfully,

Unbelievable Value!!!

Rosewill Full Tower Gaming Computer Case, support up to HPTX MB, Support Dual PSU, come with 8 cooling Fans - BlackHawk-Ultra
Rosewill Full Tower Gaming Computer Case, support up to HPTX MB, Support Dual PSU, come with 8 cooling Fans - BlackHawk-Ultra

Pros: The BlackHawk Ultra is an excellent case with massive airflow. The configuration options allow for flexibility in a variety of ways. The case allows for water cooling, multiple fan configurations, as many fans as you could imagine mounted as either intake OR exhaust. The size is beyond CAVERNOUS...it's huge, kinda like being in a concert hall...you can configure to your hearts content and the amount of work room inside is unbelievable...makes the Antec 1200...my optional favorite...owned three (3) of them already...seem small and the 1200 is huge. Super tower doesn't do the size justice. I love this case and the fan headers on top and bottom of interior provides for excellent wire routing for all those multiple fan configs I was mentioning. I love this case, it's the best one I ever purchased and with rebate and on sale, it cost me the exact same as a Antec 1200 would've. TCO is excellent.

Cons: There aren't any I could find. Everything worked perfectly, nothing was broken or felt flimsy or cheap. This case is a work of art and beautiful. It says Serious...when looking at it...understated and classy to all heck!!!

Overall Review: This case provides value beyond what I paid for it, it is super quiet with all fans running full out, you can barely hear a whisper. The air flow is maximized and massive, NO heat issues with a 2700K, Corsar H100 push/pull config, 2 dvd burners, 1tb hdd, 128g crucial C300 SSD, Asus Maximus IV Extreme P67 Mobo, overclocked to 5.2GHz and it idles at 29-31C motherboard temps are avg of 2-4C below that. This case is awesome and has a huge amount of expandability for up to 10 hdds as well as a dedicated SSD or 2.5 hdd slot. You can't go wrong with this case and all wiring reaches and includes a 8pin extender cable for psu to cpu power on top of the motherboard with the psu located in the bottom...Smart and efficient already included with the purchase...somebody thought ahead for everyone. Rosewill may be newegg's House brand but it sure doesn't equate to cheap!!! Not by a long shot!!!!

ASUS VE228H Black 21.5" 5ms LED Backlight Widescreen LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 ASCR 10,000,000:1 W/ Speakers

Pros: The monitor is bright, easy to set up, has modes for viewing that actually works and you can see a difference in each mode. Buttons are easy to access and have a positive feedback feature in the onscreen display.

Cons: Not Bigger?

Overall Review: The monitor was well packed for shipping, looks gorgeous, works like a dream and is so easy to set up!

Outrageous II

Intel Core i7-960 - Core i7 Bloomfield Quad-Core 3.2 GHz LGA 1366 130W Desktop Processor - BX80601960
Intel Core i7-960 - Core i7 Bloomfield Quad-Core 3.2 GHz LGA 1366 130W Desktop Processor - BX80601960

Pros: Addendum to outrageous...now have the Corsair H50 water cooling kit in a push/pull config and there's no more thermal issue of any kind! This processor is unbelievably fast, sheer unadulterated awesomeness of CRUNCH POWER. Can't slow it down and now can't over heat or fry it...The combination I have seems to be perfect...takes any OC I throw at it and sits up and begs for more!!! Speechless at what it can do...no issues, no bumps, no glitches...it just SINGS such sweet music to my techie geek inflamed ears:)

Cons: ZERO...You expected something different? NOT!!!

Overall Review: Read my first post on the 12th of september...labeled outrageous...then with the Corsair H50 in Push/Pull...OMgoodness>>>Unbeleivable. I'm simply blown away at this set-up and no I'm no noob...been building for a decade and a half...OCed everything I've ever owned and half my families as well....nothing comes close to this...nothing! ALL this and I don't even game except for some Microsoft Flight Sim Pro and a bit of TWoods Golf. Ear Splitting GRIN...WOWEE ZIMBAMBANG! :) Newegg Rocks and they provide all the goodies for the fun once reserved for the stratosphere of financially able...at the absolutely best prices and support on the whole EGG er planet... Thanks Newegg you ROCK OUT as ALWAYS!!!

Liquid Goodness

CORSAIR Hydro Series H50 120mm Quiet Edition Liquid CPU Cooler - Intel Only (CW-9060006-WW)
CORSAIR Hydro Series H50 120mm Quiet Edition Liquid CPU Cooler - Intel Only (CW-9060006-WW)

Pros: This cooler does all it claims and more. Dropped my temps on an OCed I7-960 at 4GHz under load massively. Super easy to install using a "push/pull" set up...already had the first fan turned in for cool outside air in attempt to keep the cpu from melting down using a Zalman 9900 max...under Pi95 it was hitting a 100C with no stopping the rising temps. I'm using a Antec 1200 V2 so fans no problem...still the temps were completely out of control under ANY load...idled at 41C but any load immediately pushed temps to 60C+.

Cons: Absolutely none at all. Should never have tried cooling with air..zalman CNPS 9900Max...Fantastic air cooler but in no way capable of controlling the thermal envelope of the I7-960 when overclocked....Yes I used AS Silver 5 and reseated cooler numerous times and reconfigured the airflows from all fans for intake of cool 21C room temp airflow with only the 230mm as only exhaust. No dice...100C+ temps when running Pi 95 and 91C if no hyperthreading! Unusuable and extremely dangerous temps...went the H50 way...poof...no more issues! NUFF SAID!

Overall Review: For the price this is absolutely a beast at cooling. The temps in the Antec 1200 V2 with all fans set to intake except the 230mm on top exhausting, any load at all on the OCed I7-960 created an unsafe temperature differential that was unacceptable. This cooler slammed the brakes on at 71-72C PERIOD. The processor runs for hours with Pi 95 slamming all cores at 100% load and the highest temps are at 71-72C. Yes I have hyper-threading enabled, so 8 cores at 4GHz and temps are rock solid stable at 71-72 C. You get your moneys worth and a whole lot more as far as I'm concerned. I have built PC's and performance PC's for a decade and more now and this is the first pc that I couldn't safely cool with an excellent air cooler...So instead of opting for one of the more expensive water cooler kits...I figured 1200+ reviews couldn't possibly be that far off...they weren't....rather spot on... just as I described...incredible cooler for the money and absolutely fantastic at temp reductions!
