This review is from: Rosewill RNG-406Uv2 - Ethernet Adapter, 10/100/1000 Mbps, USB 3.0, 1 x RJ45
Pros: Windows 8 automatically detected the device and installed driver v188.8.131.52, the entire process taking no more than a minute.
Ran a quick 4GB transfer to test and speeds ranged from 59MB/sec to 70MB/sec, hovering most of the time around 65MB/sec. Transfer was completed in about a minute.
Extremely satisfied, but it's important to note that the device has been out of its packaging for less than an hour. Will update with long term results if things goes south.
Cons: n/a... for now
Other Thoughts: Ethernet plug was very snug, almost had to force it in. Giggity.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Comes with a speed controller, big plus. Very quiet at low/mid speeds. Moves lots of air. Neat looking red blades (not that anyone will ever see it, heh.) Overall very pleased.
Cons: Pretty loud at max speeds, would be 5 eggs otherwise.
Other Thoughts: Controller works great, and with a splitter, allows for control of a 2nd 120mm case fan!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: COOLER MASTER RR-CCH-L9U1-GP 92mm Hyper TX2 CPU Cooler
Pros: Acceptable price, but if the rebate comes in, it's a stellar deal at $1.99. Relatively quiet, especially with a board that does variable speed. Running an E4500 just a tick over 3GHz and 10 hour prime95 load temps are in the mid/high 50's.
Cons: Pins on fastening bracket could be easier to install, but it's no more difficult than similar coolers (equivalent to Artic cooler freezer pro 7.) I get nervous when the motherboard flexes under the pressure that has to be applied to get the pins to stick.
Other Thoughts: Much much easier to install after sliding off the fan assembly.READ FULL REVIEW
