5 out of 5 eggs eggcelent CPU cooler for my 8 core CPU 07/05/2016

This review is from: ARCTIC Freezer A11 CPU Cooler for AMD, 150W Cooling Capacity, 3 Direct Touch Heatpipes, <23dBA Fan Noise

Pros: This CPU cooler is very quiet and keeps my FD8320 3.5 GHz CPU cool, even when trans coding large videos.
It does not readily collect dust like many coolers do, this is a real plus.

Cons: none!

Other Thoughts: ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0 AM3+ AMD 990FX
AMD FD8320FRHKBOX FX-8320 FX-Series 8-Core
G.SKILL Ripjaws X / F3-12800CL8D-8GBXM
Thermaltake SMART Series SP-750PCBUS 750W
Rosewill VIPER Z ATX Mid Tower

Rosewill RX-C200P 2.5

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It worked for mounting a SSD drive in my system.

The soft plastic easily conforms to to threads of standard machine or self-tapping screws.

Cons: Although the photo on the box and the listing depicts screws, my sample did not have. I had to supply my own.

The plastic construction will not assist in dissipating heat. I mounted my SSD in front of a fan.

Other Thoughts: I am very disappointed with Rosewill's poor quality control that allowed my sample to be shipped without screws.

Pros: This is a nice system, especially if you normally attach it to an external monitor. It has more than enough power to edit high resolution raw photos.

Cons: 1) The 640x480 web has very little dynamic range, easily saturates in moderate light. The web cam in my old eee netbook is much better than this one. It is possibly the worst web cam I have seen in years.

2) Windows 10 Home defaults to spying on you and skype has advertisements. These can be easily defeated with research, but it is highly annoying. This is why I run Mint Linux on most of my systems. This it not the fault of ASUS.

3) Crapware! The system comes with moderate amount of crapware that takes time to remove.

4) Very limited viewing angle on the screen.

Other Thoughts: It is an excellent value if priced near four hundred.
