NZXT Havik 140 CPU cooler - User review - Special pseudo-fanless edition

I never thought I would get my hands on an NZXT product. NZXT is famous for its chassis and case fans, typically aimed at the silent computing enthusiasts. I also am a silent computing enthusiast, but I never spend on expensive casings and fans. I have never spent on CPU heatsinks either since I got the Ninja in early 2006.

And it happened that I won a contest (or is it more of a lucky draw?) and got myself a NZXT Havik 140 CPU cooler. And being a number-hunter, I promptly proceeded to test it.

Muse M20 EX3 TA2021 amp - User review


I finally got around to measuring this amp. And building the contraptions needed to measure amplifiers.

Two terms created this time while I was in the army:

All the F - the response to what the F, e.g. "WTF does this thing do?" "ATF."

Ohsnoesis - the movement of ohs noes from a region of higher concentration to a region of lower concentration

Getting the power indicator LED(s) working on Muse M20 EX3

At first I was cursing about how the Muse M20 EX3 does not have a power indicator LED. Turns out I was wrong.

There is, but it is so faint, it might as well don't be there.

I only noticed it because I saw a faint blue glow coming from the bottom side of the volume knob when the room is dark. In fact, even with the lights off, the light is so dim it cannot be captured on my camera.

So there is light behind the knob. So I pulled the knob out.

Four LEDs do the job of lighting up the blue glow.

But the light is blocked by the knob which is too fitting.

So pull the knob out until you get the amount of light you want.

How it should look like.

I don't know if this is a design flaw, problem during transport, or intentional. But easily adjustable power LED indicator is useful for me. You know how the newer monitors can set the power indicator light to off, so that you can enjoy the movie in total darkness?
