Zalman CNPS 9900 Max Processor Cooler Red by Zalman
I was utterly flabbergasted when, after installing this in my machine, my computer actually booted up. Difficult to install doesn't even begin to describe the Herculean effort required to put this into your computer. I felt sure with how I was bending and twisting my motherboard, and putting pressure everywhere, that I was bound to have broken something.

But eventually, it did go on and my computer was fine. I've got a system monitor running and it's reporting 35-40 degrees C cpu temp with my system under light load, and it's incredibly quiet. Once it's installed I can't complain. This is after 90 degrees under my previous broken cpu fan (I don't think it was even spinning,… Read more

If you like to watch sick, depraved images that have no justification of being on the screen at all then this movie is for you. I've seen some try to justify the gratuatous violence and say it has some moral behind it but they're wrong. It's gore for gore's sake. Please don't take me for some sort of self-appointed moral guardian, I am a big fan of some so-called video nasties. For example I like the two Saw films a lot. Watching those made me think about the way I live my life and they're done with intelligence and are shocking for a reason. Hostel is the polar opposite and had no business being made in the first place.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could be a lot better, 2 Jun 2005
I don't like this arcade stick much for a couple of reasons. Firstly, the stick itself is far too stiff. It might be alright after you break it in but I haven't got time to do that. Secondly, the buttons are a bit rubbish and, again, a bit hard to press when I'm used to the easy buttons down the arcade. And lastly the base is a little small, I was expecting something a bit bigger from the picture. Maybe I'm being a bit harsh on it but I bought it wanting to replicate the experience from the arcade but it just isn't the same with this stick. I prefer playing Mortal Kombat on the Xbox controller to be honest and I don't even bother with Street Fighter which is the main game I got this… Read more
