This review is from: ADATA DashDrive UV128 32GB Flash Drive Model AUV128-32G-RBY
Pros: Works great, fast transfer speeds, great boot drive, no data corruption. Installs Windows 8.1 in about 5 minutes or less.
Other Thoughts: I was a little skeptical since the price was so low but this drive is awesome. USB 2.0 speeds are maxed out and USB 3.0 speeds are amazing.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Almost halved my CPU load temps over the factory 775 cooler. Multiple socket support. Under priced.
Cons: I was unable to install this with the fan facing the rear of the computer due to the chipset cooler on the ASUS P5KC. I had to face it up but.. I actually like this better since I have dual exhaust fans on the top of my case. My power supply is mounted on the bottom of my case as well. In a case that does not have exhaust fans on the top of this case, this would be less than ideal.
Other Thoughts: I've been running a Xeon x5460 (Socket 771 CPU) on a ASUS P5KC (Socket 775) motherboard using the sticker pin mod. With the stock cooler I was reaching temps as high 80C+ under full load with a stock clocks. Overclocked to around 3.6ghz with no added voltage it would run closer to 90C under full load. This CPU is capable of running 4ghz+ with a little added voltage but my temps would exceed 100C if I let it.
That led me to buying this cooler and I must say "Wow what a difference" My idle temps are barely over room temp 26C and full load temps have dropped to around 50-55C. Now I can run my Xeon @ 4.2ghz and it never breaks 60C.
Pros: -All the cooling options you could want.
-Very clean looking.
-More than a fair price.
-Feels like a full tower.
Cons: Not big problems..but here's a few nitpicks.
-The hard drive trays are 100% plastic. No metal clips or reinforcing metal. I look for these to break one day.
-Not all fan slots include filters.
-Doesn't come with enough fans to fill the case. I had to purchase a few extras.
-The rear fan is drawing air into the case... I changed it to an exhaust fan.
-Not all of the fans are attached to the fan controller, only the front two.
-The fan controller makes no noticeable difference in fan speeds.
Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a great case that won't disappoint for a price that doesn't hurt your pockets much, you found it.READ FULL REVIEW
