GELID Solutions CC-SnowStorm-01 92mm Hydro SnowStorm Triple Powered Heatpipes CPU Cooler
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I have specific requirements for my CPU coolers. They need to have a permanent mounting base on the face of the mobo. I need to be able to easily remove and replace the cooler from the base for cleaning. This cooler accomplishes this in an unique manner, The heat pipes are slanted towards the rear of the case. There is only mounting supplied for a push fan. Most coolers have the heat pipes straight up in case the end user wants to also mount a pull fan. Very few end users bother to mount a second fan. As a result of this design the fin tower and fan together, mount squarely on the designated mobo cooler space. There is no concern of the fan interfering with the first ram slot and mounting screws are all easily accessible.

Yay !!!

I'm assuming that it can easily keep my budget Intel Haswell processor cool.

Cons: None at this time

Other Thoughts: Just installed this cooler so I can't comment on it's cooling ability. I wrote this review to highlight it's unique design. Nowhere is this feature ever mentioned. Hope this will serve to better informed PC assemblers.

Sedna 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Worth the Wait 04/23/2013

This review is from: Sedna 3.5" Front Panel with 2 x USB 3.0 + 2 x USB 2.0 Ports

Pros: I needed this to take advantage of the USB 3 header on my new ASrock motherboard. I must confess that the sole reason I chose this over the other offerings was the fact that it has a pretty blue power LED. The leads for the USB 3 are nicely sleeved in blue. The USB 2 leads are a ribbon cable. For my case the leads were plenty long enough. Installation was simple. The back screw hole lines up with the slots provided in my Cooler Master case floppy drive bays.

Cons: This was shipped from Hong Kong so it took about 12 days to get to me. Like my review title says---- "worth the wait".

Other Thoughts: I was a bit concerned about saying goodby to my floppy drive until I realized that I was only using it for MemTest. I finally downloaded a CD version. Duh..

Rosewill RX-358 V2 SLV - Silver, 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Heavy aluminum top and bottom plates leach heat away from the sturdy steel frame. Cooling fan is whisper quiet. The hard drive is mounted to the frame with 4 screws rather than rubber pads holding it in place. Blue LED's are nice and bright. (I like LED's)

Cons: Rubber feet should have been provided. The bright metal frame is visible through the front mesh, The mesh is easily removable and a little bit of black paint improved the appearance of the unit.

Other Thoughts: As the title advises, the cooling fan is a 80mm x 10mm slim fan. Fans this size are available from several makers. I'm assuming that I wasn't the only potential buyer who wondered about the fan size. Over the years, I have learned to avoid PC hardware with fans that can't be replaced with standard fans.
