This review is from: Rosewill RCX-Z90-AL - 92mm Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler
Pros: - Works better than stock Core 2 Duo hsf, and almost same size
- Comes with thermal compound applied to the heatsink
- The plastic fasteners seem to install with less effort than Intel's
Cons: - Can get loud at times (see Other thoughts)
Other Thoughts: I've purchased this hsf to replace the stock Intel on a C2D CPU. The case I've used this on was limited on space, so I needed something that would be close in size to Intel's, and this one was only slightly taller. Initially it was loud, spinning at over 3000rpm, but I ended up changing the fan settings in BIOS (can also be done with third party apps in Windows) so it would spin at 2400rpm, which is very quiet. It lowered idle temp to around 50c (stock was 60c with indoor temp at ~25c), and doesn't go over 63c under load (this system isn't used for gaming) when the stock hsf was hovering in top 70's to low 80's.READ FULL REVIEW
Works with latest Canon DSLR cameras and Apple laptops.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: I got this card a few days ago, after it was on sale, for a Canon SL1 DSLR camera. I've performed several speed tests using Black Magic Disk Speed Test application and the results were as follows:
With Transcend RDF5 reader and USB 3.0 - 90/60 read/write.
With MacBook Pro's built-in card reader - 85/58 read/write.
Ran the same tests on an older FujiFilm SDHC 6 card, and got 14/7 read/write.
Pros: Works with MacBook Pro
Cons: None at the time of writing this review.
Other Thoughts: The packaging lists that the write/read speeds using a 128GB UHS-I card with USB 3.0 can reach 30/90. After testing this reader with a Wintec Professional PLUS UHS-I card, the results were 60/90, so they were as advertised or better.READ FULL REVIEW
