GIGABYTE G1 Gaming G1.Sniper LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Cosmetically pleasing and it works as advertised*

Cons: When I recieved the board the pins were bent. I still don't know how. I was the only one installing everything and I hadn't taken the cover off of the socket. This is NOT a regular issue, however it brings us to gigabytes RMA/customer service quality. It sucks. retail price + shipping for RMA twice total put this board $90 over the price at purchase.

Also if you have a full tower don't get too excited about the usb 3.0. It doesn't reach to the front of the case (where it is designed to go) This is mentioned in at least one other review.

Other Thoughts: I won't buy Gigabyte again. There are enough companies out there making dominate/more dominate motherboards to make this not worth a second venture.

ZALMAN CNPS9500 AT 2 Ball CPU Cooling Fan/Heatsink

5 out of 5 eggs WHAT A BEAST 08/20/2009

This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9500 AT 2 Ball CPU Cooling Fan/Heatsink

Pros: Looks like it will cool a warm cpu : ) but i think do to my inexperience hooking up a heatsink/cpu fan It isn't cooling as much as I would like.

Cons: the only con would be the installation, because you have to take entire system out and apart to get to the back of MB to install brace under cpu, but with the heavydutiness {(its a word)alright not really}of the fan it makes sense. I did not deduct an egg because it isn't the products fault I am a wuss when it comes to setting heavy things on my CPU

Other Thoughts: I personaly don't llike installing these because when you are screwing it down you have to go back and forth between each side of bracket to make it flush against cpu, and I am afriad of cracking/breaking my cpu. I recomend having the fan from it blow out the back and have a fan on the back blowing out as it will help a great deal with air flow and cool significantly, I know that sounds like common sense but not everyone knows, as I jsut learned with this beast.

Vantec Spectrum Fan Card with Dual 70mm Adjustable UV LED Fans - Model SP-FC70-BL
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Beast of a powerful fan unit. Love the speed control on the back of pci card. Dropped Case temp 10 degrees Celsius

Cons: Loud when on max speed, but.... I don't particulary care because you can slow the fans down and it still works great on a medium speed.

Other Thoughts: I have a single gtx 280 and even with its own heatsink/fan it runs really hot in my case. This fan really makes a difference I have it turned up all the way while in Left 4 dead and I can't here it behind the in game noise. SO, I guess what I am getting at is who cares if it is loud if it will cost 20 bucks to keep your stuff from burning up ; )
