Cooler Master Nepton 280L - All-In-One CPU Liquid Water Cooling System with 280mm Radiator and 2 JetFlo Fans
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Easy install, Included fans are great, Keeps CPU nice and cool. So far Reliable

Cons: Radiator screws don't exactly match threads on fan mounting screws. They Strip out easily. Pump does not support PWM or Linear speed control. Works *sometimes* off the motherboard, requires a separate voltage regulator for pump control on Z77 MPower. Makes an occasional "fart" sound when an air bubble passes through the pump.

Other Thoughts: Tech support was great. Answered all my questions. Yes the pump really is supposed to run @ 6000 rpm

Seagate Momentus 7200.4 ST9250410AS 250GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Works Fine, Came Refurbished. SMART Data was not reset on refurbishment. Seemed to have suffered from bad head. SeaGate must have replaced armature(heads). Could have been a user issue (dropped it) Threw every test I had at it. Works fine so far. No platter damage.

Cons: Is a mechanical Drive

Other Thoughts: Chose Seagate after bad experiences with WD,. Maxtor, Hitachi. I Don't keep anything critical on this drive, just for my netbook.
Seems very efficient. WD 500Gb was 4.5hrs batt life. I get 6.5hrs now.

ASUS Xonar U3 16-bit 48KHz USB Interface Sound Card

4 out of 5 eggs Amazing USB Sound Card 01/21/2015

This review is from: ASUS Xonar U3 16-bit 48KHz USB Interface Sound Card

Pros: Decent sound quality @ 46kHz. DAC is asus ua100. This uses the Texas Instruments DirectPath DRV601 for headphone amplifier. Built in charge pump for negative voltage; uses direct coupling instead of capacitive Quite loud for a 5v@500mA power supply (USB) . Much louder than my Xonar DGX "Gaming headphone amplifier"(which has +-12v available.

Cons: DRV601 is rated at >= 100ohm output impedence. Asus is using this chip out of spec. Might not last forever.
Housing is rediculously large for the size of the board and kind of ugly. the 2 blue leds are pointless and just waste a few mA.

Other Thoughts: Overall a good buy at under $40. Works well with my crossfade M-100. Can put a concert on my head and take it with my laptop.
