SeaSonic SSR-650RM 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Reputation of Seasonic

Cons: -None for me

Other Thoughts: I wanted a quiet and efficient PSU for my HTPC, and I found it with this Seasonic. The wattage is overkill for my little system, but the efficiency is fantastic. Also, since I'm not stressing the PSU at all, there's no concerns about it running hot or loud. As it is, the PSU is as near to silent as it can be with the fan (ie., inaudible if I'm not putting my ear next to it), and the semi-modular nature was great for my little CM Elite 120 case. As you would expect with a high quality product, it comes with MORE than most people will need, and Seasonic was nice enough to include a drawstring bag to store the extra pieces that you don't need. Top notch in every respect.

Rosewill RHRC-11002 - Windows 7 Certified MCE IR Remote Controller / Win 8 MCE + Small USB Dongle Type with Netflix CD
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Simple
-Works without configuration in Win7
-Comprehensive controls
-Good IR receiver

Cons: -USB extension cable too short!!

Other Thoughts: I installed this on my new Win7-WMC HTPC for the living room, and I have been pleased overall with it. Once I installed the drivers and connected the IR receiver, the remote worked immediately in Win7-WMC, and it's been very effective. I'll eventually use my Harmony, but for now it's been working fine. The only negative is that the included USB extension cable is woefully short if you have your HTPC out of the way (mine sits on the floor next to the component shelves/entertainment center). If you have your system sitting on shelving (or don't have a coffee table, I suppose), it's probably not an issue, but fortunately I had a 3 ft extension cable that works perfectly so the receiver is sitting next to my center channel speaker. It would be nice if the receiver had double sided tape attached so you could affix it in place, but that's nitpicking.

Cooler Master GeminII M4 - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes

5 out of 5 eggs Quiet and effective 12/31/2013

This review is from: Cooler Master GeminII M4 - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes

Pros: -Includes everything you need

Cons: -Instructions could be clearer

Other Thoughts: I needed a new CPU fan for my AMD A6-powered HTPC since the stock cooler was simply too loud for the living room. With my Elite 120 case, I was restricted from using the really large quiet coolers but found this one with good reviews. I haven't been disappointed. Installation was fairly easy, though the instructions (in a bazillion languages) were not as clear as they could be. Once installed, there was an immediate improvement in the noise level, and I basically only hear the slim side fan in the case (need to figure out to replace that sucker!) since my Seasonic PSU is practically inaudible. CPU temps are lower than the stock cooler, too. Very effective upgrade and perfect for HTPC.
