This review is from: Nippon Labs Model DP-DVI-6 6 ft. DisplayPort to DVI-D 28 AWG Cable M-M
Pros: Thick and solid, high quality feel.
Cons: hm... nope, none.
Other Thoughts: It's a good thick cable, it doesn't feel cheap like most thin cables do. Running three monitors on a single gtx760 which only has 2 dvi ports. I'm using this to run the third monitor, it works.
It's a cable, it cables and when it cables, it cables well.
Pros: Easy installation, good speed, solid and reliable, good signal. No Issues. Low price.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: Low priced and good speed. My router is in a central location so I can't say I've really tested the range on this, but my desktop is in a separate room with a couple walls in the way and I've had zero issues. Signal is strong and reliable with little to no drop offs. I stream movies and transfer very large files and it runs at peak transfer speed for a long time with no issues.
I can't comment on the software on the disc because I don't use it. I downloaded the drivers from the website and installed only the drivers through windows.
All in all a solid performer. I'm happy with it.
This review is from: Rosewill RCX-Z300 92mm Ball CPU Cooler
Pros: Affordable, PWM, Low Profile, Easy install.
Super quiet ~700 rpm at low load/idle. Cools well at high load at ~2400 rpm.
Cons: Can be loud at full tilt, but that should be expected with it spinning at ~2400rpm. So not really a con, just a fact. Keep in mind, if you don't have/turn on automatic fan control it will spin constantly at full speed. Pretty much all coolers will do the same.
Other Thoughts: I've been in the process of changing one of my old systems into an htpc/nas box. I got this to replace a massive 3 pin Zalman cooler that was unbearably loud ( I couldn't find the manual fan controller for it.)
I adjusted the settings in the bios for automatic fan control and this thing is super quiet at idle and while watching movies, which is when a silent fan really counts. Temps while watching movies using the cpu/software decoding (gpu decoding turned off to save power/noise) are ~50C which is fine by me.
I haven't done much gaming on the system yet, but I did some cpu burning and the temps were steady at ~75C after about 15 min.
All in all for $15 I'm very happy with this.
