5 out of 5 eggs Very Good for the Price 11/16/2015

This review is from: 14" Collectible Sword Dagger European Style with Sheath

Pros: The price is really cheap, yet the build quality is quite good. The blade is metal and while the handle + sheath are plastic they feel like good quality. It takes more then just a look to tell it's not an authentic medieval or renaissance dagger. This would make a nice costume piece. I would buy this again in a second.

Cons: At this price, or even double the price, no cons.

Other Thoughts: The edges of the blade are not very sharp, but the point is. This would do allot of damage if thrust into something with even minimal force. NOT a child's toy!

Pros: A pair of 5 dbi antennas provides for excellent signal range and quality. These provide an Excellent Signal whereas the former wireless card only had Medium signal strength.

Cons: Costs more, but the better quality antennas are more than worth it.

Other Thoughts: Fourth Rosewill Wireless Card I have used on my own personal machines; so far so good.

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent Cooler For HD 6970 01/12/2012

This review is from: GELID Solutions GC-VGA02-01 1 Ball, 1 Sleeve VGA Cooler

Pros: Excellent Cooling Capabilities
37C @ Idle
57C under Full Load for 30 min. (BitMining)
61C for VRM temp under Full Load ^^^^^
Ambient Temp. ~ 22C
Better Price than it's Competition
Looks Cool, at least to me it does.

Cons: Not the Rev. 2 model... hence the VRM heatsink doesn't work on an HD 6970, but that's easily fixed with several smaller ones. Not a huge issue, but it does take a little longer to install as is.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace a stock cooler on my HIS HD 6970. It lowered the temps under load by 30C. And it's totally silent in comparison too. I can't hear it over my case fans, even when stress testing.

Make sure you install ALL of the Heatsinks. Some major review sites neglected to install everything and therefore had VRM temps over 100. Take your time and it will work wonderfully for you. :)
