This review is from: NZXT Kraken X41 RL-KRX41-01 140mm All-In-One Water / Liquid CPU Cooling Solution
Pros: - It's IMHO one of the best AIO liquid coolers. It's quiet and cools very efficiently. The PWM fan adjusts through the motherboard to rising temperatures.
Cons: This isn't my first Kraken X41. The others I've used worked perfectly and I have no complaints whatsoever. BUT. The most recent one I received had a leak where the hose entered the radiator reservoir. I noticed it before installing and then saw that the cardboard packaging was damp. Manipulation of the cooler resulted un gurgling noises as the remaining fluid flowed through the tubing. Newegg was very supportive in arranging for returns.
Other Thoughts: I RECOMMEND YOU CAREFULLY INSPECT YOUR COOLER BEFORE INSTALLATION. I have now, after the fact, read a number of reviews that indicate leaks detected during the install process. It may be that NZXT has a QA problem that needs addressing.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Price is great - even lower than the older model TEGS80G. Metal housing, stays cool, works like a charm.
Cons: They removed a lot of extras - even something I didn't thing should have been cut. There are no port indicator lights for speed. The previous models all have visual indicators of port speed. That help one immediately determine if a slower, older cable is plugeed in or if the device is not gigabit compliant. On this model, there is only a single green light that goes on when the cable is connected and flickers to show data transfer - no indication of link speed. I find that terribly disappointing.
Other Thoughts: Price cutting should really only go that deep, and not to the point where a few LEDS (and associated circuitry?) are omitted.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Dual LCD Monitor Desk Mount Stand Heavy Duty Fully Adjustable 2 Screens upto 27"
Pros: I have not found one real issue with this monitor stand. It's well-made, solid and holds my two monitors perfectly, at the right angle and exactly where I want them. The instructions were clear and assembling it and installing the monitors were a snap. The arms are sturdy and my monitors exhibit no sagging.
Cons: This is a nit. It would really have been nice if the screws to secure the VESA mounts to the monitors were black like all other parts were.
Other Thoughts: I was hesitant to get this monitor stand, since many at much higher prices were rated so low - but I thought that at $42 I could take a gamble. It paid off. This monitor stand is the bees' knees.READ FULL REVIEW
