Pros: Great cooling performance for my application... In my application.
Other Thoughts: Just a follow up to my last review. I forgot to mention what proc I run and what circumstances my setup is subject to.
I am running this cooler in my server with a 95 watt quad core Athlon II CPU. Being a server, CPU (and RAM more so) resources are mostly taxed by virtual server machines. I only have 3 VMs running and they operate under light resource loads.
The guys complaining about overheating 8 core FX series procs are expecting too much from a compact cooler.
Pros: Works as well as the larger 92mm Arctic Alpine 64 Pro in my application. PWM fan is nice and quiet and no interference with motherboard features. More on that later.
I wanted an AM3/3+ specific cooler to avoid pulling the motherboard because I had install a backing bracket on the bottom of the motherboard.
Cons: None yet.
Other Thoughts: I had an AM3+ motherboard give up the ghost I replaced it with one that has 4 RAM slots only to find that the larger Arctic Alpine 64 Pro blocked 2 of the memory slots. I ordered the motherboard and extra RAM in the same transaction so I had a problem. Arctic (back) to the rescue. Changed direction in mid-build. Started as a project to sell but prematurely dead MoBo ate up my profit margin the way dogs eat homework. My Dobo is a FANTASTIC NAS box but it can't do what a server will do so I built a server instead.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TRENDnet TEG-S5g Gigabit GREENnet Switch
Pros: Gigabit is gigabit from 1 hub/switch to another. This switch performs as well as any other I have had, at a better price point.. I have a major name blue metal 5 port hub in my computer room. It feeds my smart TV, Bluray player and Tivo with an open guest port.
Had to do the same thing in my Living room setup with this switch. Works flawlessly and setup free as it should be.
Feeds Smart TV, Tivo and Bluray player with a guest hardwired connection.
Other Thoughts: Used this in my Living room setup feeding my smart TV, Bluray player and Tivo with a guest connection.

Both units are fed with a 200 Mbs power line networking. It's plenty fast for streaming HD video.
