Pros: It did fit in my Gigabyte Board which has the memory slots close to the cpu socket. Looks nice.
Cons: My case has no cutout behind the cpu socket so to instal & remove this cooler means pulling the MB. Ugh!
Well I've tried this cooler twice now and if you run a load test one of the four processors jumps to over 60C pretty quickly. Forget about any sort of overcloking. This is an AMD Phenom II x4 975 black edition.
The first time I thought I had too much heat grease on it. They call for a thin layer in the directions. So I called and followed a specific order to use a 2mm ball and let the cooler spread it out.
It's no better. Maybe even a bit worse.
Shouldn't this thing be able to cool this processor with no overclock settings under a full load?
Other Thoughts: I'd like to get this to work but ... maybe I should have gotten the processor with the stock fan.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: KINGWIN KF-253-BK 2.5"&3.5" Multi-Function Hot Swap Rack w/ USB 3.0 Hub
Pros: Looks nice. Works with my OCZ SSD as well as my Hitachi 2TB drive. has blue led for each drive as well as an on/off switch.
Cons: You have to view that led light at just the correct angle to be able to see the red activity flashing. The modular connector at the end of the USB cables fits what? My MB does have 2 3.0 usb on the back panel but nothing internal so now what? Sata data connectors are flimsy feeling compared to those on a MB..
Other Thoughts: It's what I needed and I hope I can figure out a way to use the usb ports?READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I finally found the full 2 TB
Cons: I had to return it because it showed up as having 32GB or something. When I received the replacement it showed 1 Tb and not 2? I was running XP and the toaster style drive holder I was using via eSata only supported 1TB. But after upgrading my MB I discovered that even under Win 7 Pro it only showed 1 TB?
After a bit of web detective work I found that a utility Ddat2 lite was able to unlock and reveal the full capacity of the drive! Kind of a scary looking utility to use by the seat of your pants. I wouldn't do it with data on it.
What in the H*LL is this all about???
Are they making 2TB drives and then setting the capacity depending upon what they need to sell that week?
