Rosewill RCX-Z775-LP 80mm Sleeve Low Profile CPU Cooler

5 out of 5 eggs Great Little Cooler! 02/04/2014

This review is from: Rosewill RCX-Z775-LP 80mm Sleeve Low Profile CPU Cooler

Pros: -Its fan and fin layout makes good use of the very little space it takes up. The fact that it also is a low-height also helps with the airflow to the rest of the case.
-Has a copper core.
-4-pin PWM so its fan speed can be controlled by your motherboard.
-Looks better then the stock Intel fan.
-The cable is sleeved.
-Comes in minimal and hassle-free packaging.

Cons: It's designed for processors with a TDP of 65W or less. If you need anything higher than that, then you're looking in the wrong place to begin with. Not worth taking off an egg for that.

Other Thoughts: There is nothing bad I have to say about this fan. I bought this to replace a stock Intel fan that died on a Celeron G530 on a LGA1155 board. It gets used as an HTPC and it's not audible from about 10 feet away on our couch. It is doing a great job of cooling an already low-powered and cool-running CPU.

EVGA 02G-P3-2639-KR GeForce GT 630 2GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Handles two monitors without a hitch.
-Relatively quiet.
-Newest drivers installed without any issues.
-Takes up only one slot in your case.
-If you're looking for performance, it scores between a 6.7-6.8 in WIndows 7 for both graphics "benchmarks" depending on your setup.

Cons: The fan started making noises after about 4 months of use. I air-dusted it out and the noise persisted and now a second video card (same model) is starting to have the same issue. Knocked off an egg for an otherwise great video card.

Other Thoughts: I have used 4 of these in different systems. All are used in conjunction with the on-chip Intel HD4600 graphics for a 3-monitor setup. It's not the ideal setup but it works when you are on a budget and you only work with documents and spreadsheets all day. Drivers were not an issue and I didn't bother with the drivers from the disc, as the newest NVIDIA drivers will be your best bet.
I think the fan noise we are experiencing on 2 of the same cards is due to a design flaw of the fan as we are not in a dusty environment and it is not under any stress (they're not used for gaming).

Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000

4 out of 5 eggs Almost Perfect 02/04/2014

This review is from: Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000

Pros: -Comfortable to type especially with the built-in wristpad.
-Quiet as you are typing.
-USB cable is long (roughly 6 ft)
-Keyboard software is not a resource hog and very minimal.

Cons: Some labels on the most used keys are starting to wear out, after about 4 months of use. This is because the characters are printed on, instead of being engraved.
Also, the "quietness" of the keys seem to wear out also, depending on how hard you press on the keys. Your mileage will vary.

Other Thoughts: I replaced the standard keyboard that came with 8 different Dell workstations at our data-entry-heavy business and everyone has been happy so far with them. It takes a little getting used to the layout but once you do, your wrists will thank you. If it weren't for the cons listed, then it would have been a perfect 5 eggs.
