Pros: Super solid, reliable, dependable, fast, handles multiple upload - download streams with ease. Bought this when Comcast upgraded cable internet speeds; plugged it in, registered with the Matrix, off to the races - no problems whatsoever.
Other Thoughts: Motorola makes solid hardware - my last surfboard modem had five years of continuous heavy use with not one hitch.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G
Pros: Extremely effective.
Cons: Doesn't make me toast.
Other Thoughts: This stuff is the bomb. Lowered temps on two AMD processors by 8-10 degrees centigrade over stock thermal paste patch on stock cooler, and by a solid 10 degrees centigrade on copper pipe cooler on an AMD X4 740. Read and follow the instructions on the Arctic website. The silver compound improves over time - up to 200 power cycles for full effect (hot running then cool off). I noticed a difference after the first five cycles, and it just gets better. Enough in the tube to do at least 10 processors/heat sinks if not more.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Easy to mount, do not have to remove motherboard or back plate if you do one side at a time (leave one or two screws attached after you get the old brackets off). Took me about ten minutes total. Fan easy to un-mount and remount. Came with paste and good instructions. Very quiet and keeps my X4 740X nice and cool (cooler than stock fan).
Cons: No time machine included.
Other Thoughts: Copper tubes nice and smooth at mount point. Does not cover entire top of processor but most of it - and in the center where the cores generate the most heat.READ FULL REVIEW
