Pros: Easy liquid cooling. Works very well. This cooler will keep an overclocked CPU reasonably cooled.
Overall Review: I own this and the H70. I am getting ~3-5 degrees difference. With that, I chose the to use the H70 on one of my more intensive rigs; however, if the extra money is not within your budget-this is a great solution.
*Moves a lot of air
*Looks great in the Haf-X
*Cooler Master brand
Cons: *Very expensive
*Poor screws and screw holes
Overall Review: I bought three of these to put on the top and side of the Cooler Master Haf-X case, and, I must say, my rigs looks great. With these and a few red cathode lights, the Haf-X looks like a beast and coolers wonderfully. I definitely recommend this fan, if it is within your budget.
Pros: This monitor is tremendous, sharp, and responsive. I am an avid gamer, and I play WoW, Shogun: Total War, Black Ops, Crysis 2, and many more-I couldn't be more satisfied. The internal speakers can be muted from the Menu (a fantastic options, especially if you're using a dvi-hdmi converter cable).
Cons: The default settings are very poor. Not much of a con, seeing as though they are so easily changed. This monitor is also very bright-again, not enough to knock off an egg.
Overall Review: Make sure to change the settings as soon as you get this monitor! I use the preset settings entitled "Theater Mode." There are various options depending on your brightness and use.
Pros: Stores my 17.3 laptop decently, comfy, cheap, and good-looking.
Cons: Not as roomy as I thought. I carry a 17.3" laptop, a slim keyboard, a mouse, a mouse pad, and a charger. Not that it's a serious con, but that is the maximum capacity. It only has two storage areas, one is hardly big enough for the charger. Not enough of a con to knock an egg off.
Overall Review: A pretty unbeatable deal. It stores all the stuff I need it to, and it's a very economic solution to a very simple problem of carrying things.
Pros: Easy use, smooth handling, no problems, relatively cheap
Cons: It doesn't light up?
Overall Review: This mouse surpasses most others I have used. I have owned and operated (intensely) this mouse for around 3 years, and I can safely say that it is a perfect mouse. It's simple-having only a few programmable buttons (as many as I need). It has served me well through many late night raids and many late night games of CoD.
Pros: Does what it's suppose to: powers your comp. Corsair is a good brand and pretty safe with good customer service. I bought this after two PSUs failed on me: a tuniq and a thermaltake. Definitely a fantastic buy.
Cons: None so far.
Overall Review: Runs cool, quiet, and stable.
Pros: Runs like a champ. I was a little skeptical about buying refurbished; however, this thing looks brand-new. Newegg was fast and efficient as always.
Cons: Runs rather hot, but I bought a cooling mat and now its just a little warm..not really a con. No complaints here.
Overall Review: Anyone interested in running WoW, MW2, Sims, Crysis, or anyother graphically intense game will have obtained ease of mind when they start to play. This thing handles everything I can throw at it. For the price, this laptop is unbeatable.
Pros: True-revolutionary-RPG/FPS hybrid. This game is also one of the few games that relies entirely upon its predecessor, ME1. I bought this and ME1 the day of the release, and I can truthfully say, Bioware is a game-designing genius. If you like sci-fi, you will love this game.
Cons: Unbelievably reliant on the first game, not a problem for me-but maybe a problem for some.
Overall Review: I loved that I could play after completing the main storyline, they also have vastly improved the combat over that of the first game. If you're looking for a full blown FPS-go get CoD6, but if you're looking for something with tremendous depth in storyline and an above-average over-shoulder shooter, get this game NOW.
Pros: They work well with glasses and sound quality was relatively high
Cons: Low mic receptivity, uncomfortable after 1-2 hours of usage, and cosmetically unappealing.
Overall Review: I have returned this headset to Newegg and have instead purchased Razer Carcharias Headset. I highly recommend the Razer headset to anyone with or without glasses, it is comfortable after prolonged usage and is high quality in both sound and mic. Overall the Razer Carcharias is a fantastic headset.
