Acer E5-551-89TN Notebook AMD A-Series A8-7100 (1.80GHz) 6GB Memory 1TB HDD AMD Radeon R5 Series 15.6
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: * Specs are nice for a sub $500 machine

Cons: I used it for one day, and then left it to charge overnight. The next morning I woke up and it would not power on. I checked the wall socket with a meter to make sure I had 120v which I did.

The machine bricked after one day of use, and I am very displeased.

Cooler Master Seidon 120V – Compact All-In-One CPU Liquid Water Cooling System with 120mm Radiator and Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: * Keeps chip at or below 40c while running Prime95
* Easy to Install
* Thermal Grease provided actually outperformed the Artic Silver that I had, but in AS defense it was quite old.
* Extra screws so you can use an old 120mm for a push/pull configuration ( which works great! ).

Cons: * Fan can be quite loud. Personally I manually set the speed in my bios to 60% and use it in tandem with another 120mm that is whisper quiet.

Other Thoughts: * Had some clearance issues on my motherboard. Not Coolermasters fault, but just be aware.

This brought my temp from 33c at idle to 25c. Also brought my load temps ( prime95 ) down from 65c to 40c. I am very, very pleased with this product.

MSI R7950-3GD5/OC BE Radeon HD 7950 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: * Nicely priced card
* Performs flawlessly at high resolutions ( Far Cry 3 )

Cons: Stock Heatsink Temperatures were exceeding 90 degrees celsius, and I consider that to be much too high for longevity. The heatsink is very small in size, and the fan sounds like a jet engine when it nears 100%.

Other Thoughts: If you plan on replacing the heatsink then this might be the card for you, but if you plan on staying stock then I would most definitely look elsewhere.
