This review is from: Rosewill RCX-ZAIO-92 - 92mm Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler Fan
Pros: Price, weighs next to nothing, does a great job and is very quiet doing it. I took a chance and was very pleasantly surprised. I would definitely recommend this to others.
Cons: AMD clip system could be much better, IMO but it works and works good. Thermal compound that comes with package
Other Thoughts: Just put together a budget rig with an AMD Phenom II X4 810 and decided to get this CPU cooler when Newegg did not have the Kingwin that I wanted. After seeing that it was a decent cooler I decided to overclock. I have the 810 CPU overclocked to 3.51 Ghz and still staying chill. My CPU idles around 29 -31 and maxes out in torture tests around 57-61. Pretty good for $15 I think.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very light and solid when assembled. Keeps drive cool. Great price. I was worried once I got it that the drive would rattle and move around and I was surprised by the tight fit, and how well it worked out.
Cons: Don't like the double USB power source, mainly because I dont need it but it was nothing to replace. Cord can be too short but again not a problem. Drive a little loose at first but I put a couple strips of electric tape on the inside back to hold it tight and it works great.
Other Thoughts: Not the best enclosure that I have had but easier to carry around than some others are and for the price don't be afraid to buy it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good price! A total 180 from the old Toshiba 5400 rpm drive that it replaced. Runs quieter, cooler, and of course faster being that its 7200 rpm. Old Toshiba drive would get so hot that it would shut down sometimes when rebooting a couple of times in a row and it was impossible to play any games because it was so hot. Great improvement.
Cons: None really. wasn't packaged as tight as I have seen from other stores or probably not near as tight as I would have done it but I know I like to over do it, and the drive worked great right out of the box.
Other Thoughts: Didn't think I would be able to tell a difference going from 5400 rpm to 7200 rpm but as little as it is I can notice sometimes.
I've owned several Hitachi drives and never had any trouble with any of them, as opposed to seagate or Toshiba. Hitachi always delivers quite, cool, and very reliable drives for the price.
