This review is from: GELID Solutions GC-Extreme Thermal Compound
Pros: This is the absolute best thermal paste out there, hands down.
Cons: None, unless you want to say that it's expensive. You get what you pay for!
Other Thoughts: I have seen some people say that you need to warm this paste in order to easily use it. This was not true in my case.
The spreader is a nice extra, but I don't use it. It's better to just apply a dot and put the CPU cooler right on to spread it.
Also, the black cap is rather difficult to remove without pliers. This is not really a con, but at first I thought it wasn't even supposed to be removed at all.
Pros: This optical drive is a great inexpensive DVD writer.
It comes very well packaged. They don't just stick it in a box and drop it in the mail. It is wrapped in plastic and snugly fitted into a strong air cushion that is the exact right shape for a DVD drive.
Cons: Absolutely none.
Other Thoughts: If you really want a great deal, buy it when it's on sale for $15.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The price is good if you will use it for GPU rendering in 3D. This card is much cheaper than nVidia's Tesla cards. It also renders faster than 2 GTX 580's and it costs about the same, but the GTX Titan Black is one card, not two, and it has 6GB of RAM.
I don't use this card for gaming, although it's the best gaming card money can buy. I use it for 3D renders with Blender and its Cycles rendering engine.
This card renders the BMW test scene (if you know what that is) in 26 seconds on Linux. That's blazing fast!
This is what this card was designed to do.
Cons: The price is pretty high if gaming is your thing. You're better off getting a GTX 780 ti, because it's about $400 cheaper. Don't buy this card for gaming unless you know what you're doing. Maybe you want 3 4K monitors or something...
You probably don't need 6GB RAM for gaming.
Other Thoughts: If you want to buy this card, but it's out of stock, check early each morning (including Saturday, that's when I got mine). Then buy it IMMEDIATELY.READ FULL REVIEW
