This review is from: SilenX EFZ-80HA3 80mm 3rd generation fluid dynamic bearing Effizio CPU Cooler
Pros: This cooler is so cheap I would never guessed what it could do. It keeps an A10 in idle temps of 28c and load temps <=50c. At first it did horrible and I thought that I might of did a great mistake in buying such a cheap cooler, but what a surprise it gave me.
Cons: Installing it isn't the easiest thing I have seen, and the hook thing is super cheap and just weak. But all in all it does make a really tight grip on the CPU which is a good thing....but I thought I almost broke my board because I had to apply so much force to get it on. I really heard a crack but it works so I think it is okay.
Other Thoughts: If you think this cooler doesn't do its job properly then use the line method when applying your thermal paste, it makes a world of difference. And of course never use the cheap paste that comes with your aftermarket coolers, especially this thing if the cooler is so cheap imagine how cheap the paste is. All in all really great cooler love it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: D-Link Xtreme Gigabit Router (DIR-655) Wireless N300, USB SharePort, Gigabit
Pros: Has great speed it was a really simple install back in 2010. It has given my family 4 years of service and it hasn't died out on us yet. This router is a solid one, I extremely recommend it to anyone who is looking for a router just under 70 bucks. Its is a true champ.
Cons: Overall the years there has been some hiccups it has dropped signal a few times over the course of this last year, I think its because it is getting old and overheating its really hot to the touch....makes me wonder why manufactures don't build any of them with a small mm fan. But nowadays no manufacture builds anything to last...so I am really amazed at how long this router has kept going.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm
Pros: Keeps everything cool I like the features but they are not stable what so ever.
Cons: So first of all corsair link software is a load of ****, with the led lighting it either when cold booting glows some kind of pink or it just loads to default. It doesnt seem to remember your light settings, the in software monitoring is just not accurate at all! And after all this missing with it and trying to flash new firmware it just completely locks up like none of it works anymore....Piece of junk.
Other Thoughts: Cooling while overclocking is great but I seemed to just get more disappointed since its a water cooling system I don't know I expected it never to reach 85c running prime95 but it did. I know the prime95 is an intense piece of software but 85c I don't know if its even any better than an air cooler tbh. Even though it might look like I am not satisfied at all, I actually am cause I know that it cools great for idle temps 27-35c and for what I call load I don't see it peak any higher than the mid 60's. Maybe I just had high hopes...maybe I thought it to be comparable to a custom water cooling system (just cpu)...Idk but I am still happy with it because under other benchmarking software the chip stays with in the thermal limit stated by the manufacture like 75c. So I guess its a great product its just not amazing as I hoped it to be. Seriously Corsair stop messing around and actually get some firmware that fixes these issues...there are so many customers just unsatisfied with the piece of software.READ FULL REVIEW
