MASSCOOL 8W2002B1M4 90mm Ball Bearing CPU Cooler for INTEL Socket LGA 1155/1156 Cooper base
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I installed this CPU cooler on an ASRock H77M-ITX (mini-ITX) motherboard, within a Foxconn RM-224 mini-ITX case.

The cooler and fan allowed room to install a Power Color HD-7750 low profile video card in the PCIe slot. Despite the tight quarters, there is sufficient clearance for all hardware items to function properly. This CPU cooler doesn't interfere with the RAM modules or with anything else. Very nice and perfect!

Did I mention that it cools very well?

Cons: There are no cons in my situation.

Other Thoughts: Nothing comes to mind.

SeaSonic SS-350TGM Retail 350W TFX12V (v2.31) 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply - Retail
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This Seasonic SS-350TGM power supply fit in a Foxconn RM-224 mini-ITX case with only a minor modification to the case. To make the power supply fit perfectly, I had to grind away about 1/8" at the rear of the case.

That is, I had to enlarge a small area on the rear of the case so that the plastic surrounding the power plug would fit through to the back of the case. A small grinding wheel on a hand drill did the job in a couple of minites. One could also use a file for this job, if needed. Not all cases would need this modification.

Otherwise, the power supply fit perfectly. I removed the 150 watt power supply that came with the Foxconn case, and upgraded it with this Seasonic 350 watt unit.

I had no issues with the bundle of cables that comes with the Seasonic power supply. I simply hid the unused cables under the cage holding the CD-ROM drive. I don't see why anyone would blame Seasonic for ones own failure to not notice that this power supply has no detachable cables. This arrangement is in plain sight and Seasonic makes no claim to the contrary.

My computer runs Windows 8, with a 65W Intel i7-3770s 3.1GHz processor, and a PowerColor HD-7750 low profile video card. It also has the other typical items, such as a motherboard, CD-ROM drive, SSD hard drive, etc.

Cons: This power supply has no cons worthy of mentioning.

Other Thoughts: I like the 80 plus gold efficiency of this power supply. This means it produces power with less heat than lower efficiency rated power supplies.

PowerColor AX6670 1GBK3-HL Radeon HD 6670 1GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I purchased this low profile HD 6670 to replace and upgrade an older low profile Radeon HD 4650. I upgraded to run a 24" LCD HD television I had received from my employer as a bonus. The older card didn't operate the TV properly, though it worked after a fashion. I installed the card in a amall ITX (GA-610) case by G-Alantic.

I'm using the TV as a computer monitor (already have TVs), and as a replacement for a 19" monitor. This new card and the most recent AMD drivers installed and worked with the 24" TV perfectly. I installed the game Fallout 3 and it works (the game) at the highest in-game texture settings possible.

The game runs smoothly and looks great on the big TV/monitor (1920 X 1080P).

Cons: No cons that have anything to do with the Radeon HD 6670.

Other Thoughts: The TV isn't designed to be a computer monitor, so it doesn't respond properly to the computer's sleep or shut-down commands. As a result, it can't be put into sleep mode, and needs to be shut-down and powered-on using the TV remote control device.

So, if you want to use a TV for a computer monitor, make sure it can respond to computer commands for these functions. Other than these limitations, the TV works great as a computer monitor.
