Intel BXSTS100C Passive/active combination heat sink with removable fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Silent Intel L5640 Fan Sink 06/24/2011

This review is from: Intel BXSTS100C Passive/active combination heat sink with removable fan

Pros: Silent @ 2481rpm.
My three Seagate 15k.6 SAS drives make more noise than the CPU fan sinks.

Cons: Noisey @ 4440rpm. If I was forced to use this rpm, I would be looking for another fan sink in one minute.
Yes, it is that loud...

Other Thoughts: My motherboard: Supermicro X8DAI bios 2.0c
I have two L5640s installed.
With Bios set to "Low Noise" 2481rpm.
With Bios set to "Balanced" 4440rpm.

Fan sinks keep the CPUs cool even with a room temperature of 90F and full CPU load using Seti@home as a test. ("Low noise" setting)

This is the perfect fan sink for 60W and smaller CPUs.

This review is from: AzenX Blitztorm BT-SC70BBL 70mm Red LED Blitztorm System Slot Cooler

Pros: I needed to cool my Adaptec 5405 Raid Controller.

This product worked very well.

Cons: Full speed will make noise.

Other Thoughts: The adjustable speed is great.

2K Games Gift - Duke Nukem Forever Game
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

1 out of 5 eggs No PC Joystick support 06/16/2011

This review is from: 2K Games Gift - Duke Nukem Forever Game

Pros: I will play the game and let you know.

Cons: Must have high speed internet.
Steam update: 25MB download
Duke update : Over 300MB download. Yes 300MB !
No PC joystick support...
Only keyboard, mouse or XBOX controller.

Other Thoughts: If your going to play with "The King", you need a stick in your hand. Not a bean flicking XBOX controller.

With Duke 3D, you could assign a function to a certain joystick button. Jump, croutch, weapon select. It was GREAT !!!

Duke 3D is still the Gold Standard...

I called MadCats tech support, their XBOX joystick will not work with Duke Nukem Forever.
