This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR841N Wireless N300 Home Router, 300Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button
Pros: Built if firmware should satisfy anyone from the novice user to someone who needs moderately advanced control of a home network. I dare you to do better for the money. :D
Cons: The antennas are fix into place and are not replaceable. It would have been nice to see standard detachable antennas on the unit but that also may add to the cost.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: *First of all...THEY'RE NOT BROWN!! :P
*When Cooler Master says these have high static pressure, they're not kidding. These things can move air through the narrowest of fin array and rads.
*The included line resistors to control speed are a nice touch.
*The colored vanity rings are an excellent idea. Also, if you like black, just take them off. :D
Cons: *LOUD! At full speed they will definitely let you know they are there. Even with the included speed reducers they still emit a noticeable woosh. I highly recommend a fan controller.
*On the units I received, the RPM sensor does not work. I hear this was a problem with certain batches having an incorrect resistor on the tach circuit. It's not a deal breaker for me but for others it may be. I can't be bothered to RMA them.
This review is from: GELID Solutions GC-Extreme Thermal Compound
Pros: *Excellent thermal dissipation. I've used it for both my CPU and GPU. Both saw minor yet significantly lower temps. With a proper installation you should be able to hack off about 3-4 degrees Celsius from your load temps.
Cons: *Like others have said, this stuff is thick. It has the consistency of peanut butter when it's at room temperature. I highly advise you to put it in a baggie and let it sit in a cup of hot water for a few minutes. Also, once it's warm, work quickly. As it cools, it gets very sticky and hard to work with.
*Not recommended for beginner.
Other Thoughts: I usually use the pea sized blob in the center of the heat spreader for AMD chips. This method doesn't fare well with this stuff. I advise you to use the included spreader.
Also, this may not work well for heat sinks that have low installation pressure.
