Pros: 620w that can power two HD 7850's in Crossfire. (the reason i bought it)
One of the best power supplies in this price range.
I was considering this or a few others that were higher wattage, but I am happy for choosing this ones quality over higher wattage.
I don't have to worry about my PC blowing up...
Cons: paint chipped easily.... :( so there is a quarter size area of silver in an all black case and motherboard...
Other Thoughts: doesn't make toast like my last PSUREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill RCX-ZAIO-92 - 92mm Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler Fan
Pros: Surprisingly good cooling. (best I have seen in this price range)
With the current CPU of 100w TDP I have this on, the temp does not go above 65C on prime 95 for 2 hours.
Light construction, (doesn't warp the MOBO)
easy to clean? lol
even with the fan at lower speeds the CPU doesnt heat up much
Cons: The mounting seems flimsy but it works.
On AMD sockets it is difficult to get the cooler properly aligned with the bracket. Also when you clamp it down it sometimes wiggles out of place :/
On Intel sockets it is difficult to get the pins into the motherboard correctly.
Fan is loud unless you manually configure it on your motherboard.
Thermal paste is a real pain to get fully off, to where there is no residue left.
Sadly for the past 2 years it has kept my CPU so cool, that I haven't been able my toast on it like on stock coolers.
Other Thoughts: Update on an older review. Bought this about 2 years ago. i have used this on Intel and AMD sockets (FM2+, AM3, LGA 1156, LGA 775) and many different CPU's
I have this setup with a fan behind it, (push-pull) that in its self will drop your temps immensely. Using Arctic Cooling MX-4 before that I used Arctic Silver 5 (MX-4 is better).
Bottom line if you dont wanna spend $25 or more on a after market cooler this is the way to go.
Pros: YAY! i finally found a decently quiet ODD!!!!!
it works and its quieter then any other odd i have purchased in the past so i am really happy!
also its a good thing this is on the cheaper end
Cons: doesn't burn my toast for me. (guess ill leave that for my toaster)
Other Thoughts: ill be buying for LG for dvd drives from now on.. but i wonder how their blu-ray drives are... well when i upgrade i will see.. hahaREAD FULL REVIEW
