Cooler Master GeminII M4 - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

3 out of 5 eggs Easy to install, but Blocked a Connector! 04/14/2015

This review is from: Cooler Master GeminII M4 - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes

Pros: The easy install kit was simple! I just identified my socket type and went with the flow. I had that thing on there in 30 minutes' time. Plus the slim profile isn't as bulky like the last kit I ordered.

Cons: I don't know why they chose a 120mm surface area as opposed to 80mm, because when it went down to hooking the motherboard and everything else back up, I had to take the fan straight off just to get the 4+4 connector hooked up. This still blocks some of your RAM sockets as well. It took me 30 minutes to get the fan put back on due to the fact they had to use thin, steel wires rather than screws.

Other Thoughts: I might not have tested idle and load cooling performance yet, but I want to be double-sure I applied just the right amount of thermal paste. The fan design isn't all that bad, but I wasn't expecting it to run that much more quieter than any cooler on the market.

AMD A10-6800K Richland 4.1GHz (4.4GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 100W Quad-Core Desktop Processor - Black Edition AMD Radeon HD 8670D
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Four cores, 4.1 GHz apiece, and being that it's "black edition" makes it more than likely that you can push the limits on it some more. This processor actually teamed up with my ASUS R7-250 video card and created a Dual Graphics configuration out of it.

Cons: Not once does it want to stay in its turbo frequency for longer than 30 seconds before the fans kick on. It doesn't even get to the rated turbo frequency on all of its cores.

Other Thoughts: Unless AMD can improve upon delivering more processing power with less heat, then you might want to get an aftermarket cooler, preferably with liquid cooling.
The Dual-Graphics thing is still fairly new to me, but it did improve framerates in Saints Row IV and in some Source Engine games. It's just not capable of handling the games by themselves.

Coboc EA-HDAC-6-BL 6 ft. 28AWG Stranded Tinned Copper 18Gbps High Speed HDMI Cable with Ethernet w/Ferrite Cores,Blue,M-M - Ultra HDTV 4K x 2K & 3D Compatible - 4096x2160P@60Hz
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: None, for some reason, I never got to use it. See other thoughts.

Cons: I know it's not the Cable, because I plugged it into my Dell laptop to my LCD display and got a picture, but I don't know why the heck I'm not getting a picture through my tower with an AMD video card?

Other Thoughts: I have a 1920x1080 LCD display that has HDMI and both HDMI ports on my all-AMD tower refuse to output a signal. Plugged one of the ends into my Dell laptop and I got a picture, so what's the deal? So maybe I'm wondering AMD uses a proprietary pinout on their cables?
