I have a Coolermaster Hyper 212 CPU cooler and the fan was kinda cheap & noisy. Even noisier when upside down. Had to lay my tower on it's side. It burned out about a month ago. So I bought one of these Corsair fans. No regrets. This thing is very quiet and is working great. Cost me about $32. But so worth it.

GnuCash is based on double entry accounting, which is very intuitive.

Each account represents a thing, like your bank, wallet, or grocer. You then transfer money between accounts to represent transactions (eg $20 from wallet to grocer).

Accounting is a must, as it allows for you to investigate and report fraud with certainty, and GnuCash makes it easy.
