SAPPHIRE Vapor-X Radeon HD 7950 DirectX 11 100352VXSR 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It works. The Vapor-X heatsink and fans nicely cool my GPU. The fans are running at 60% speed at most even when I play BF3, Bioshock Infinite, etc. at highest quality.

You still have rooms to tweak this display card.

Cons: The card sagged within 2 weeks. Sapphire is making another joke --- I paid 300 bucks and I can't even get a piece of aluminum to back my card.

The card will take up 3 of your slots. If you want a 2-way Crossfire on your MATX mobo, rethink.

Other Thoughts: You'll want a pair of earmuffs when Vapor-X fans are running at full speed.

WD Blue 1TB Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD10EZEX
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It stores file. Windows can read and write files to the harddisk drive. That's it.

This model has1TB on a single platter. You know what I mean.

Cons: Vibrations that I can feel from my computer's chassis.

WD can put 1TB on a single platter but fail in damping the motor's vibration.

Other Thoughts: I actually bought two of this model separately. The first one arrives with other computer hardware. Newegg simply warped my drive (in the anti-static bag) with one layer of bubble sheet, and toasted it with a PSU, a mobo, a graphic card and a Intel T-shirt that's compressed to stone hard. I am quite sure that the harddisk drive was constantly smashing with other parts in transit. Not a good idea.

The second one is much better. Newegg put the second one onto a set of trays that suspended the harddisk drive from the paper box. That's much more sensible when Newegg was dealing with HDD.

The lesson? If you're ordering a HDD with other items, don't think about it. Make a separate order for your precious HDD.

Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model 997123

Pros: It works. Ta-da!

The cheapest DDR3-2400 CL11 when I bought this kit with a promotion.

These memory sticks don't have rubbish, oversize spreaders which would block a CPU heatsink. A huge plus.

The plastic package does not require pliers to rip it open. It only has a few tabs that you can uncouple them with bare hands. That's a premium option in this civilized world.

Cons: I'd really appreciate if Mushkin includes a factory seal to prevent tampering. I can't tell if my memory sticks are open boxed or not.

Other Thoughts: Eh no, you can't really overclock these RAM. Mushkin's rating is pretty much as far as you can go. This is NOT a complain, though. I'm just telling people who want to overclock their memory sticks: look elsewhere.

I'm quite happy with Mushkin. If my sticks don't fail in three years, I'll buy another kit from them for my future computer.
