XIGMATEK Thor's Hammer S126384 W Heat-Pipe Direct Touch CPU Cooler Intel and AMD compatible
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: ?

Cons: No AMD mounting hardware included. Intel mounting solution was the only one included in package.

Xigmatek impossible to contact. No email and only 1 phone contact with voice mail (2 calls not returned in a week). Newegg checked, but had no AMD mounting hardware available in house, had to RMA.

Other Thoughts: When I originally ordered this compatibility in Details section also listed AMD, now it just shows compatible with AMD in Item name's description.

Asus VH238H Black 23

3 out of 5 eggs VH238H - colors/contrast not consistent 05/07/2011

This review is from: Asus VH238H Black 23" Full HD HDMI LED Backlight LCD Monitor w/Speakers 250 cd/m2 ASCR 50,000,000:1

Pros: Overall decent, with no dead pixels. OSD menu isn't a conventional layout, but not bad to use once you adapt.

Cons: If you notice details or do color sensitive work you may want to consider other options.

This is 2nd VH238H I've gotten from Newegg and both have same issue. This one isn't as bad as the first so will keep it. I won't be using it professionally, and will look for other solutions when I go Eyefinity.

The color intensity/saturation/contrast at the top of the monitor is deeper and darker than the same image moved to bottom of screen. Deep, rich colors appear washed out and a different shade at the bottom. Black text up top is thick and black, while moved to the bottom it's gray and thin.

Also, there is "dimming" at both side edges, more noticable on white/light background (Newegg page).

If you're sensitive to details and/or need a monitor for professional use you may want to consider another.

Monitor is best viewed from straight on, at least 2 ft away.

Some of the modes are useless. Not all settings can be changed in all modes.

Other Thoughts: @Dan or other ATI/AMD GPU owners with border problems: get or open Catalyst Control Center, go to Digital Panel, and then Scaling Options. Set the slider all the way to the right, at Overscan 0%.

Also, switching inputs (already cabled, just changing which device you want to use) is is laggy when it works. When it doesn't work the monitor needs to be turned off, then back on.

Link Depot POW-ADT-20M24F 24 Pin Female To 20 Pin Male Power Cable
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs does what it's supposed to 01/25/2011

This review is from: Link Depot POW-ADT-20M24F 24 Pin Female To 20 Pin Male Power Cable

Pros: Easily and safely allowed me to connect (and check out) my new PSU to my old 20+4 mobo as I gather parts for a new build.

Cons: Only needed it for a short while.

Other Thoughts: I might pass this on to a friend who has several older systems and will be upgrading their PSU soon.
