Corsair 64GB Voyager Slider USB 3.0 Flash Drive (CMFSL3B-64GB)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

3 out of 5 eggs Not so fast 02/13/2014

This review is from: Corsair 64GB Voyager Slider USB 3.0 Flash Drive (CMFSL3B-64GB)

Pros: I love the storage capacity, which is why I opted for the 64GB.
No cap to lose anymore.

Cons: Quite a bit slower than I was expecting. My 6 year old 8GB 2.0 PNY goes at least 50% as fast. If I am lucky I can transfer files at up to 20MB/s, usually sits around 16-17MB/s.

Other Thoughts: It is true that the slider doesn't protect the inside of the 3.0 connector, but then again, I don't carry this around in my pocket or on a key chain. Usually sits in it's own pocket in my bag when it isn't plugged into a computer.

Rosewill RCAB-11038 - 18

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Sata III.
Works great.
Much more flexible than the stock ones that came with my mobo.
Matches my color scheme (blue led fans, blue mobo, blue ram).

Cons: Longer than I needed, but that was easily fixed with a clear zip-tie.

Other Thoughts: Plan on buying two more to replace the stock cables that barely twist far enough to plug into my SSD and HDD.

Cooler Master Seidon 120M - All-In-One CPU Liquid Water Cooling System with 120mm Radiator and Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Looks good, but about the same as the others (the little blue light on it goes with my theme).

Cools my Phenom II X4 955 that I overclocked from 3.2 to 3.6. Running Prime95 for a couple hours and it never got over 49 C, and it usually sits around 33 C when doing simple activities.

Installation was straightforward. Extra screws for a second (push/pull) fan were included.

Cons: Installation may have been simple in principle, but the springs for the screws are extremely tough. I thought I was going to break my motherboard when I had to throw my body weight onto the screw driver just so the screw would reach the threads.

It is also a little big for my Cooler Master Elite 430 case; I have have two fan slots on top, but I can not use the rear one because the radiator is so large. It would probably work best in a full case instead of a mid. I measured it and if a 20mm or thinner 120mm fan were used, then it should fit perfectly, but they are usually more expensive, lower performing, and rather scarce.

I will admit that the noise above 50% fan speed is quite loud. I lowered mine to 40% and as long as there is any sound playing (music, game, video) I can't even hear it. The only time the fan kicked up above 50% was after overclocking while running the stress test, otherwise it is hardly noticeable.

Other Thoughts: As other reviewers have pointed out in many reviews of these water-cooled units, there is a lack of airflow across the motherboard and specifically the northbridge. I picked up a 40mm fan and attached it to the northbridge heatsink, which solved my problem for only $5.
