This review is from: ASUS P5Q Deluxe LGA 775 Intel P45 Intel Motherboard
Pros: Great stable board for overclocking. When overclocking, you can set the CPU voltage to auto and you do not have to mess with it. Best board I have ever owned.
Cons: PCI slot layout, my video card has (Akimbo Edition 8800gt) has a heat sink on top of the card preventing me from using one PCI slot. My I/O shield does not line up with the input connectors. I do not use the features ExpressGate or EPU. The board is great, but is almost too fancy for me.
Other Thoughts: My 3rd build, Q6600 @ 3.2ghz (800x4), FSB to Ram 1:1, Evga 8800gt Akimbo Edition, Antec TPQ 850W, Razer AC-1 soundcard, 4gb Corsair (4-4-4-12), Antec 900 case. When installing my Xigamek S1283 cooler, it is honestly 1-2mm off of the Northbridge cooling, but it still fits. Future proof, I plan on throwing in 2 ATI 4850's and I wont need a new computer for years to come.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: VANTEC NXP-205-BK Black Fan Controller Panel
Pros: Controls yo fans. LED's look good, not too bright. They don't light up the room but get your attention. Uses that floppy drive bay you get tired of looking at.
Cons: Creates a horrible high pitched noise, similar to the mosquito ringtone. Seems like when I had the knob turned all the way to the right (high), it would still create the noise.
Other Thoughts: I made the mistake of buying this and putting low dB fans (20-25dB) on it. I couldn't take the noise anymore. Took it out and I am going to save it when my fans are loud on my next build. I don't understand why the black one cost more.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: HIPER HFF-1W12W-UV Blacklight Reactive 120mm White Case Fan
Pros: I doubted myself buying this because the price is pretty cheap (you get what you pay for) but it is a great fan. I do no hear it all and it pushes the amount of air specified.
Cons: I should have bought more.
Other Thoughts: Don't know about the UV on it. Don't doubt yourself on this one. Comes with some rubber stickers (for vibration?) but I just use them on my hard drive.READ FULL REVIEW
