This review is from: OCZ OCZTFRZTC Freeze Extreme Thermal Conductivity Compound
Pros: Previously, I used the thermal compound that came for the cooling system on my motherboard, which on idle, my Q9450 was heating up as much as 50 degrees Celsius. After using OCZ Freeze however, my CPU temps had dropped over 10 degrees Celsius and are now hitting mid-thirties.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: Silver-based compounds such as Artic Silver can short your CPU/motherboard if they manage to leak into the socket since silver is conductive. Fortunately, OCZ has absolutely no silver in it, so you get that extra peace of mind when you choose to use this particular compound :)READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ACTIVISION Enemy Territory: Quake Wars - OEM Intel PC Game Gift
Pros: It's free.
Cons: Graphics are not that great even on max settings. Felt too much like I was playing some sort of futuristic mod for the Battlefield series (1942).
Also instead of integrating an anti-cheat mechanism into the game, they force you to install a 3rd-party program called PunkBuster that sits in the background if you want to play online. No thanks, I think I'll stick with Team Fortress 2 for now.
Other Thoughts: This game is not worth $50.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Belkin F3U138v03-RTC 2.6 ft. 2-Tone 5-Pin Mini-B Retractable Hi-Speed USB 2.0 Cable
Pros: I used this replace the Y-cable that came with my external hard-drive and I absolutely love it. It's retractable which is really nice because you won't have a mess/tangle of wires and it makes it easy to carry around.
Even better is the fact that it's powerful enough to power a device like the Maxtor OneTouch Mini. Most other rectractable cables are unable to do that.
Cons: None.READ FULL REVIEW
