Rosewill RCX-Z1 Long life ball bearing for over 45,000/hrs CPU Cooler
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Rosewill RCX-Z1 06/19/2014

This review is from: Rosewill RCX-Z1 Long life ball bearing for over 45,000/hrs CPU Cooler

Pros: This is my second Rosewill RCX-Z1. I like to take old micro ATX cases from say 10 years ago and re-build them with modern equipment. This Cooler is a perfect fit for these types of cases. The Cooler move a lot of air keeping the CPU nice and cool. The Cooler can be a little noisy on high. But in these small cases you need to keep the air moving so a little noise is ok in my book. Larger fan and much more substantial heat sink then the stock AMD Cooler. Keeps my AMD FX-6300 6-core slightly overclocked to 3.7Gigs nice and cool . Mid to low 30's idle low to mid 40's under load.

Cons: Do away with the fan control and put a 4 pin PMW plug on it

4 out of 5 eggs Rosewill RCX-Z1 06/09/2014

This review is from: Rosewill RCX-Z1 Long life ball bearing for over 45,000/hrs CPU Cooler

Pros: Some people I see knock this heatsink and fan because its weak. It's really quite a good unit if you stay within specs. Some people were asking this cooler to cool a AMD FX -8350 a 8 core TDP of 125 watt monster. The RCX-Z1 is only rated to cool CPU's with a TDP of 95 watts like the AMD FX-6300. That's like asking a car radiator for a 6 cylinder engine to keep a big block 8 cylinder engine cool-Not going to do a very good job.

Cons: Do away with the fan control and put a 4 pin PMW plug on it.

Other Thoughts: Good CPU Cooler for lower watt CPU's

5 out of 5 eggs hec HP585DB 585W ATX12V Power Supply 06/03/2014

This review is from: hec HP585DB 585W ATX12V Power Supply - Power Cord Included

Pros: Price, Reliability. Perfect PSU replacement for my old micro tower case. I like to take old micro ATX cases from say 10 years ago and re-build them with modern equipment. This PSU is a perfect fit for these types of cases. The PSU has a two fan setup push/pull which is nice, they move a lot of air keeping the PSU nice and cool. So they can be a little noisy. But in these small cases you need to keep the air moving so a little noise is ok in my book. I take black electrical tape and wrap the open wire cables to give them a more finished wrapped look.

Cons: The PSU does come with one 6 pin connector for a graphics card but "Be Careful" when deciding what kind of graphics card your going to uses. The 585 watts is peak I believe because there is only 15 amps on the 12 volt rail. This PSU will not run a monster card.

Other Thoughts: This PSU is running a GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-S2, 1-AND Phenom II x4 Deneb. 1-Western Digital WD VelociRaptor 150gig hard drive with Windows 7 OS, 1-WD BLACK SERIES WD1003FZEX 1TB 7200 RPM for storage. A modest HIS iCooler H775FN1G Radeon HD 7750 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express graphics card. 1-LG DVD Burner. 2-90mm case fans one in front one rear. With all this the PSU does not even get warm thanks to it two fans.
