This review is from: Acronis True Image 2015 - 1 PC (CD Sleeve)
Pros: Got the 3 PC version for a discount
Easy to install
Cons: Does not restore anything - nothing but errors
Other Thoughts: Lost my Win10 Pro 64 bit, i7, with a 500 GB SSD shortly after installing this product. Did the recommended upgrade to 2016 and it seemed to install OK. Did the backup and created the rescue disc. After the SSD crashed and was replaced with a correctly formatted primary drive, the rescue disc was installed and we went into recovery mode. Didn't work the first time (the recovery drive is an eSATA drive recognized in BIOS and in the recovery interface). The app kept telling me that it couldn't read from a sector of the recovery drive. Ran checkdisk on the recovery drive - no issues. Ran IBM drive fitness - no issues. Tried it again and got the same error message. This was several days ago and, after trying everything I could think of, finally just formatted the replacement drive and reloaded Win10 and as many apps as I had on hand (plus some from the net). This app is not worth the money - go for Aomei free. Works just fine.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Price, easy to install, heat spreader is thin (fits well under CPU cooler), looks cool
Cons: None so far
Other Thoughts: Went into my system with no difficulty, was recognized at boot, and runs at the rated speed. What more can you ask of a product that works as described.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Intel E97379-001 3.5" CPU Cooler for LGA 1155/1156/1150 CPUs like new
Pros: Cheap and better (just barely) than using nothing at all. Processor runs HOT even if you run at rated processor speed.
Cons: Doesn't deliver at even modest overclocking. Attachment is really flimsy and may/may not make full contact with the processor.
Other Thoughts: Ran my i5 at rated speed and (using Speccy), saw the temp running at 87 C! This with ambient temp of 74 F. Checked to make sure the fan was running and that the heat sink was properly attached (which it was). I use name brand heat paste and it was uniformly applied over the processor. This heat sink is not suitable for the processors Intel recommends it for. Don't waste your money on one - buy something more substantial.READ FULL REVIEW
