Pros: It does charge Samsung S5 wirelessly, even through my Otterbox case. Correct positioning on the pad is critical.
Shipping was quick.
Cons: Just received this and installed wireless receiver card inside case, but it is a smaller card than the photo, rated at only 600mA instead of 700mA shown on the Newegg photo. To ensure contact with the internal metal pins, I had to add a little padding before closing the back of the phone.
Other Thoughts: I am relieved that the system does work, even through my phone case. Upset that they sent a smaller and inferior receiver card. Back of phone gets quite warm during wireless charging, but I guess that this is normal.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9500A-LED 92mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler
Pros: All copper, quiet fan, efficient cooling. I did not bother with the speed dial contraption, and just plugged the fan straight into the motherboard. Even at full speed, it remains quiet cooling Haswell core i7 socket 1150.
It does not obstruct a side panel case fan, which a larger HSF will.
Cons: As many have reported, the supplied screws to attach the curved mounting bar/strap to the base are short, only 8mm. The curvature of the bar may vary in different packages, so some people had no difficulty. I partially flattened out the curve in the bar, but the screws still too short. I did not have spare metric screws, so went to Lowes and bought 3mm diameter 0.5 pitch 10mm screws. The extra 2mm on each side made all the difference.
I did a lot of dry testing before applying Arctic Silver for the final mounting.
Other Thoughts: Copper fins are sharp and will slice you if you slide your fingers on them, but if you just grip the object to position it during mounting, you will be OK.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Inexpensive and just works, with eSATA port and a useful 5V jack to power external devices like external HD using eSATA connection (which is significantly faster than USB).
Cons: slightly flimsy construction, but adequate.
Other Thoughts: No drivers needed in Windows 7. You must connect the Molex power connector, and a blue light indicates that you are powered on. Despite some bad reviews, mine has worked perfectly.READ FULL REVIEW
