This review is from: ZALMAN CPU Cooler CNPS9700 NT [LGA775/FM/AM/940/939/754]

Pros: Great fan! 7+ years running. It has had 4 different chips under it :
Phenom 9850 Black
Phenom II x4 940 Black
Phenom II x6 1090T Black
AMD FX-8350 Black

Cons: Bought mine for $50 from Newegg in 2008.
Interesting price "adjustment"

Other Thoughts: Not sure how anyone could pay this amount of money for a $50 cooler.
Great fan though.

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Thin
Two mSata slots
RAID option in Bios settings
Backlit Keyboard
DVD burner/player
4 slots for hard drive/storage

Cons: gets a little warm, but normal everyday use it's to be expected for this hardware setup.

Other Thoughts: I absolutely love this laptop.
I bought two Crucial CT256M550SSD3 256GB mSata's and have them in the mobo's "Raid 0"setting, in 2 arrays. I have three Operating systems running : Windows 7x64, Windows 8.1x64 on the first array, and Ubuntu Mate 15.04 x64 on the other.
I use the 1tb hdd as encrypted storage partitions. I bought a matching TS1GSK64W6H 8gb memory to make a total of 16gb. The total upgrade for hardware was $277.
The data transfer rate doubled with the raid setup. She's a little bit of a fingerprint magnet, but a damp rag with a little screen cleaning gel on it seems to wipe em away just fine.
There's an excellent youtube review on this laptop : "GIGABYTE P35K Full Video Review & Unboxing"
