Perfect for work day

Hamilton Beach 49981 Stainless steel The Scoop Single-Cup Coffee Maker
Hamilton Beach 49981 Stainless steel The Scoop Single-Cup Coffee Maker

Pros: I got this coffee maker as a Christmas gift and I love it. During the work week it is perfect as you can make enough coffee for your 16oz travel mug to take with you to go to work. The stainless steel filters are nice as they are easy to wash out. Brews a good cup of coffee as well.

Cons: Doesn't make a 24oz coffee.

Pros: Nice case with ample room inside to work. Has sound dampening material on the top to keep noise to a minimum. Drive cages keep HDDs out of the way of other components.

Cons: Hard to put in the slim ODD as the power supply butts right up to the bottom of the device. Also you need a slim line SATA converter to full size SATA to connect to the slim ODD. Biggest HSF that fits is a 92mm vertical HSF.

Impressive Card

Pros: This is a very fast mid level card. It's performance is roughly equal to a GTX 770, all while being a fair amount cheaper. I was lucky enough to get it on sale and with the MIR was all of $160 and you couldn't find a better performing card at that price. At stock speeds the card is quiet and performs quite well. Running Bionic Manager it is able to quickly do the calculations that are assigned to it. For example there was a 187TFlop calculation that it did in under 15 minutes and Bionic Manager does FP64 calculations. I have since been able to overclock it. Setting PowerTune to +20% I have the Core Clock at +8% (or about 1020MHz), and the RAM at 6000MHz. Roughly 11% and 9% Overclock compared to stock and the card remains silent.

Cons: Wasn't free.
