This review is from: Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G
Pros: Used this when i upgraded my i5 to an i7 on my g46vw... Keeps it really cool and also saves a little battery since the cooler winds down a bit.
Cons: Compound on inicial squeeze was a bit more liquid then used to but after that all was ok.. Just make sure you squeeze some out first before applying directly on the cpuREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Case Logic Black 15.6" Laptop Backpack Model RBP-115
Pros: awsome bag has a compartment for basically everything you can imagine, laptop, tablet, cellphone and chargers/cables. A lot of storage room and not all that bulky... shoulder straps and back cushions are comfy and spacing between them eliminates back sweat
Cons: notebook compartment fits tight so no hope in using a sleeve for that extra protection. also wish it was rain proof on a certain compartment just in case water were to hit the bag. all in all im just knit picking. fit my g46 asus perfectly.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: proc. can handle almost everything thrown at it, running over clocked at 3.65ghz on stock fan, at idle it stays about 34c thanks to the under clock it automatically does to 800mhz and alot of energy saving. response is fast when needed and turbo core works similar to intels i5 and i7 models. c3 revision is alot better then the old c2 140w for overclocking due to lower temps and voltage, Proc. wont bottleneck newer 6 series Radeon and putting the two together is amazing for gaming!! lots of space for tweaking at such a low price.
Cons: while installing, cpu fitted easily but stock cpu cooler was a super tight fit compared to my previous amd athlon, almost thought i was gonna break the lever on the cooler :S tight fit should help with more contact to the cpu for more cooling though.
Other Thoughts: I was kinda of balancing between the phenom x4 and x6 models but at the moment didnt really think the six cores was needed due to my needs only in gaming and normal use, plus six core amd are relativley new and are basically the same architecture, will what for what amd is cooking up next with bulldozer cpu´s to make a reasonably upgrade, plus no game puts 100% load on this baby. so just slap this with the best VGA money can buy!!READ FULL REVIEW
