ARCTIC Freezer A11 CPU Cooler for AMD, 150W Cooling Capacity, 3 Direct Touch Heatpipes, <23dBA Fan Noise
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: See earlier review posted on 3/17/14.

Cons: As advertised, the Arctic Freezer A11 cooler is rated at "150W cooling capacity. I initially installed it for cooling an AMD A10-5800K CPU which is rated by the mfr at "100W." My CPU temps had begun to exceed 60 C with subsequent shutdowns. I have recently replaced the A11 cooler with another brand. Since replacement, my CPU temp has not exceeded 50 C, nor have I had any shutdowns.

Other Thoughts: The Arctic Freezer A11 cooler manufacturer does not specify the criteria used to establish the "150W Cooling Capacity." I can only say that, in my case, this cooler did not maintain my CPU temp in a range allowing for effective operation.

LEPA N Series N500-SA 500W ATX12V Power Supply

5 out of 5 eggs 03/29/2014

This review is from: LEPA N Series N500-SA 500W ATX12V Power Supply

Pros: New Build: AMD A10 5800K 100watt CPU; ASUS F2 A85-V PRO Mobo; 8 GB Kingston HyperX 1600 DIMM. Crucial 240 GB SSD. Although mostly used for gaming, I haven't seen the need for a dedicated graphics card yet, but this PSU has ample reserve power if I decide to add one later. I've overclocked the system 24% and all the critical voltages are steady. The PSU fan is very quiet. Amply supplied with connectors. Construction just looks high quality, overall. For this price, I think it would be hard to beat.

Cons: None, so far, but I've only used it for a short time.

Other Thoughts: I was looking for a PS to replace one in my gaming computer that blew (literally) during a power surge due to a faulty surge-supressing power strip. After installing the new PS, I found the Mobo was gone also, and possible other components as well. So, I decided to rebuild from scratch with all new components. I figured 500 watts was sufficient for the system I wanted but I didn't want to go "high end." I came across this PSU and it seemed to fill the bill.

Crucial M500 CT240M500SSD1 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Very fast! Great for games which load almost instantly. Easy to install.

Cons: Trade-off: speed vs storage capacity. SSDs are expensive, and not the way to go if you need a lot of storage capacity.

Other Thoughts: I had originally bought the smaller Crucial 120 GB SSD and soon ran out of storage space. I added this 240 GB as a second drive, but it didn't show up in the Windows 7 "Computer" window. Before Windows will recognize the drive, you must first "initialize" it (format and assign a drive letter). You can do this with Windows Disk Management tool (or similar utility).
