Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs My own fault 08/24/2013

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan

Pros: Core temps for me never reach over 34 C with heavy gaming. I'm idling with a netflix show on at 27-28 C. Without the heatsink, i am typically idling at 48 C and will game between 54-60 C. I'm pleased with it, I just wish my case wasn't so silly.

Cons: This is not the greatest fit with a Rosewill Blackhawk ATX mid tower case (the one with 5 fans). The case won't 100% close because the heatsink runs into the diagonal side fan right before the final closing. I can force it, but that would cause the heatsink to sit at an angle, and I'm not willing to do that. This is only a con because of my own casing. The measurements are right, but it's the side fan that irritates me.

Other Thoughts: I cut myself trying to plug in the CPU fan cord, and here I used to laugh at people who cut themselves on these things :)

SanDisk Extreme 2.5

Pros: I have never had a SSD before, but the start up speeds for everything that I have on my SSD are very fast compared to my old 7200 1 Tb Seagate HDD. Gets to Windows 7 log in screen in about 10 seconds

Cons: my L SATA cable does not like the back of this SSD. I'm happy I have it stable at the moment, but if I didn't, I'd fear that a bump could knock it off. I've tried multiple cables on the back, seeing what will work, it just doesn't seem to want to hang on to any sata.

Other Thoughts: I honestly can't compare this to any other SSD, but I did a lot of research before I bought this. It wasn't the greatest rated brand, however it was a great review for the money, so I have no regrets so far. Can't wait to get another one of these, they fill up fast. I only have my windows files, League of Legends and a few necessary files on my SSD, but I can see how it'd be tempting to stick lots of games on it. The loading speeds are great. My old HDD serves as my slave drive, works out well.

I highly suggest doing a fresh install of your OS when doing a SSD main drive switch. Made my life so much easier, since I seemed to have botched it up the first try without a fresh installation.

ASUS M5A99X EVO AM3+ AMD 990X SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

Pros: Going from a micro ATX to this was amazing. Fit perfectly with my case (Rosewill Blackhawk ATX mid tower), very reliable, I love the BIOS set up, easy to flash.

Cons: I have honestly had zero issues with this board that are worthy of docking an egg. I do wish that some of the SATA ports didn't need L cables in my case, but that's more of a case issue.

Other Thoughts: I use my computer mainly for gaming, and honestly I'm very pleased with this motherboard. She's holding out steady, looks great, easy to use. I am not the type of gamer who needs 500 slots for GPU's and other card accessories, yet it has enough for a crossfire, which I eventually plan on using.
