This review is from: ARRIS SurfBoard SB6121 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem
Pros: I bought this 3 months ago to replace the junky Motorola modem Comcast gave me. When I had a 50mbit down link, I was pushing 75mbit easily. I've since downgraded to 30mbit and am still getting speeds in the neighborhood of 54mbit down. Not sure how or why but I'm not complaining
Cons: None, it works
Other Thoughts: This modem should be good for many years to come, so if you're paying $5-$10/month for a "rental" it pays for itself in less than two years.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill THOR V2 Gaming ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Supports up to E-ATX / XL-ATX, Comes With Four Fans - 1 x Front Red LED 230mm Fan, 1 x Top 230mm Fan, 1 x Side 230mm Fan, 1 x Rear 140mm Fan
Pros: All I have to say is if you're looking for a full tower for any reason, this is a solid buy. The construction quality is extremely impressive, the cable managment is great, it has more bays extra space than I know what to do with.
Cons: It's big, but you already know that.
Other Thoughts: The fans included push/pull air through the case like you wouldn't believe. My GeForce 670 is actually colder than the ambient temperature of my house due to the fans on the card and this case. My I7-4770 idles at 77F and under stress gets up to 115F-120F with the stock heatsink/fan. Clearly the airflow in the case is greatly helping keep everything nice and cool.
On the front panel you have eSATA, 2x USB3.0, 2x USB2.0, Mic, Headphones, and fanspeed knobs.
Pros: This is the first video card I've purchased since Quake was the rage. Obviously things have changed quite a bit since then, and this card is a perfect example. It's simply amazing, handling everything I throw at it without a hiccup. I haven't bothered to adjust any of the settings as I haven't had any performance issues. The EVGA Precion-X software is awesome - you can set temp points where the fan will speed up. The temp has never gone above 27 C, or about 81 F. Right now it's actually colder than my thermostat....
Cons: It's huge, make sure you can fit it.
Other Thoughts: It's kind of crazy how expensive video cards are these days, but maybe I'm just getting old. It'd be nice if the top of the line cards were in the $300-$400 range, not $500-$1000. Oh well, I plan on using this for several years, until I cannot keep up with 4k displays. Maybe I'll just SLI it then :)READ FULL REVIEW
