ARCTIC Freezer A11 CPU Cooler for AMD, 150W Cooling Capacity, 3 Direct Touch Heatpipes, <23dBA Fan Noise
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Quiet, solid, effective. Have installed three of these - on two X4's and one Phenom II. Whisper quiet and effective, very solid mount.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: FYI - any temperature monitoring software I have found DOES NOT report accurate temperatures for AMD processors - they read 10-20 degrees Celsius greater than what the BIOS reports. If you want accurate temp. readings look at the BIOS or BIOS utility. This cooler works great on Phenom and Athlon FM2+ processors - those reporting high temps should question the software reporting the temps, not the cooler.

WD BLACK SERIES WD2003FZEX 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Beefy drive, very thick and solid, heavy. These are not cons - this thing is built like a tank - like I remember old HD's back in the day. I can see why it has a 5 year warranty. Very fast, not noisy. Costs more than other brands but has a 3 year longer warranty and better reviews.

Cons: It's not an SSD - but they are EXPEN$IVE and I don't have to mess with re-directing folders and storage locations.

Other Thoughts: Worth the extra $$$ for the speed, build quality, and warranty. It's your hard drive that has your O.S. and all your stuff on it - never go cheap on the H.D. for your system.

ICY DOCK MB971SP-B DuoSwap 5.25
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Works well - but design/build flaws. 11/08/2014

This review is from: ICY DOCK MB971SP-B DuoSwap 5.25" Hot-Swap Drive Caddy for 2.5" and 3.5" SATA HD/SSD

Pros: Power switches for each drive, color changing led to indicate disk activity, solid frame. The speed of the drives not affected because it is a direct SATA connection (much faster than a USB drive).

Cons: The nut to the screw supporting the right side of the 2.5" drive mount bracket not attached; after the 2nd or 3rd mount I could not mount a 2.5" drive - had to take it out and dis-assemble the whole thing to fix it. Also - will not eject a slim 2.5" drive, you can still get your fingers on top of the drive to pull it out. Works fine on normal height 2.5" drives. The plastic flap is rather easy to unhinge - you have to be very careful and gentle or you will pop it off - happened to me but I was able to re-attach.

Other Thoughts: The frame is super solid, the connections are easy and long enough, once you get used to its idiosyncrasies it does exactly what it is supposed to. They should put thread lock on the nuts holding the drive mounts, and some metal for the door flap mount.
