-Good consistency. Thick but spreadable.
-Enough for 3 applications
Cons: - None
Other Thoughts: It's mildly more expensive than some, but what's another $5?!
With the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO, and my AMD Vishera 8-core Black edition... I hit 12° C at startup. it usually runs at 15-25°C under normal load.
Can't ask for more for the price
This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan
Pros: - Price
- Direct Pipe Technology (wanted to try for awhile)
- average 14° C at startup!
Cons: - Ummm... nothing.
- Actually, the fan blocked my #1 DIMM slot. The heatsink came with the brackets to mount the fan on the frount, to PULL the air through, but I instead chose to just move my RAM to my #2 and #4 DIMM. Works great, and I feel it keeps my RAM cooler too!
Other Thoughts: First, I have the AMD 8350 Vishera Black edition... all stock cooler, fan, and no overclocking. Had it for 2 years. Cleaned and re-seated it once about a year in. The fan would sometimes get loud, and I could tell it got hot, but I had my temp alert at the lowest setting of 68° C on my MB. At peak load it would sometimes beep, but would go away after a few seconds.
Lately it began getting hotter, so i decided to get a new heatsink. Of course my old heatsink(with AS-5 thermal paste) was dirty, and probably would have performed better if I cleaned it and put it back on, but it's temps were about 45-55°C idle, and 75-85°C under heavy load. Thought about a liquid cooled system, but settled on this heatsink due to it's cost and good reviews... I couldn't be happier!!!
At first, my temps was about 20° C at startup. After a few days, when the thermal compound(Arctic MX2) had a chance to cure it hits 12° C!!! Yeah.. 50°F!!!! It was amazing! Under load (actual usage load), I have yet to see this thing hit 40° C, and under normal use (i usually have about 10 windows open, and maybe a game like Fallout 4 in the background, it runs between 15-35° C.
And it's quite as hell! I have never noticed it yet, and it's only about 2' from my head with no side on the case.
And a few people in the bad reviews complained about bad installation... And I could see it being confusion, but I've put together many heatsinks, and it's simple if you know what you're doing. If this is your first time... read carefully and pay attention to detail, but it's easy.
I'd highly recommend this Cooler Master heatsink and fan to ANYONE, novice or pro.
This review is from: Borderlands PlayStation 3
Pros: Diablo-style weapon generator, post-apocalyptic setting. Surprisingly good use of the Unreal Engine.
Cons: Kinda glitchy though rarely unplayable. Bad guys are kinda repetitive, though there is surprisingly a good amount of variations of them (like the weapon generator) but you don't really notice much change unless you're paying attention. Rarely use any tactics other than charge and shoot
Other Thoughts: I found this game to be extremely fun, and entertaining. It could have had a few more classes and a little more variations in the guns, but it's their first attempt. As to people saying it's a ripoff of Fallout.. they're just seeing the fact that the story talks about "a Vault" and it's set in a post-apocalyptic-like setting... however the vault is NOT like fallout, and it's a desert planet, not post-apocalypse. It has gameplay a bit like RAGE, which IS similar to Fallout3+, but the controls are much more like Call of Duty.
The actual mechanics of the game are very Diablo like... random generators, a skill tree based on your class with 1 skill every level. Could have used more skills.
The 2-player rules are VERY nice. All players get equal money (not split), and almost equal experience (100%/95%) so you wont find it too hard to stay in the same level despite how you divide your duties.
After you beat it, you can play a second time through (to get to the level max) so if you plan to do it, may I suggest skipping some of the side missions and hurrying through your first pass.
