ASUS Laptop X555LB-NS51 Intel Core i5 5200U (2.20GHz) 8GB Memory 750GB HDD FHD NVIDIA GeForce GT 940M 15.6
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Great battery life, over 4 hours of internet/work use, over 3 hours of steaming video, 1 hour of gaming
-Good keyboard, despite the slight flex
-1080p display is satisfactory
-GDDR3 VRAM allows for high texture quality in games
-Has a DVD-RW drive despite its thin dimensions
-Fingerprint resistant on most surfaces

Cons: -No backlit keyboard, a little disappointing for this MSRP
-Power button placement, I tapped it accidentally twice during gameplay
-No easy way to access internals, no upgrade path, hope nothing goes wrong! (minus one egg for this reason)

Other Thoughts: A steal of a deal if it's on sale, but if the GTX 850M can be had at only $100 more, then you'd be better off with the 850M. Students can take a look if they want the extra gaming kick, and home users can feel comfortable with this thanks to the battery life and smooth styling.

ZOTAC ZT-70301-10P G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 770 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Runs the included Assassin's Creed game at ultra details at almost 40 fps on average in 1080p. Very impressive!

Firestrike demo - 6740 with stock 4670K

Cons: Louder than my old HP Envy dv6 notebook. :P Not really a con I think.

Other Thoughts: I don't have much to offer as far as noise level or size comparison. I built my desktop to accommodate this card.

I wish they would have given a Steam key for AC4 instead of a uPlay key haha oh well.

ZALMAN CNPS9500 AT 2 Ball CPU Cooling Fan/Heatsink

This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9500 AT 2 Ball CPU Cooling Fan/Heatsink

Pros: Installation was easy. Just had to screw in the backplate to the mobo, then screw in the CPU fan. A lot easier than Intel's OEM push-pin design, although I can see where users can get frustrated if they're trying to install it to a mobo that's already mounted and doesn't have access to the bottom.

Fits perfectly in my mid-tower ATX case.

My temps are higher than average because I don't increase the fan speed until the CPU goes over 60°C so my temps are worthless to post here. I will say that it only speeds up when I'm encoding video while I'm OC'd. Other than that it stays nice 'n quiet. :)

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Dunno about this performance compared to stock fan. Never installed it on this build.

Used this fan in another desktop I built about a year ago. When I decided to build another, I knew exactly what to use.

The included thermal paste works well enough, but you may want to go with something a little bit higher-end if you're picky about your temps.

Don't listen to anyone who says this isn't compatible with Haswell mobos. Working great for me!

Using a cheapy ASRock Z87 mobo.
