This review is from: DEEPCOOL GAMMAXX 300 CPU Cooler 3 Heatpipes 120mm PWM Fan
Pros: - The attachments let you install this CPU onto AMD or Intel CPUs. It's not difficult to switch things, just a few screws.
Cons: - What IS a problem, though, is trying to get the plastic turn screws to click into place. This piece of carp has a funny way of positioning the screws, so the giant heat disperser blocks the way for any screwdriver to press down and click the screws into place. Even clicking them into place with your fingers is a bit of a challenge, so be mindful of that.
- On that note, the thing is BIG. It would definitely behoove you to install this giant before you screw on the motherboard. If you're a masochist, feel free to ignore this warning.
Other Thoughts: I honestly think people could go for a better heatsink that isn't a bit frustrating to install like this one. It's not bad, and as long as you install it before screwing the motherboard into place you shouldn't have much trouble. But if you have to check something with the motherboard? And it involves removing the heatsink? And you already installed in the motherboard? Prepare for pain.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I feel like I had to take a roll through clown school to get this one customer's computer working. I had two spare CPUs but they turned out to be defective and I never double checked them. Bought this CPU, slapped it in, and it started working immediately. No muss no fuss no problems.
Be mindful though, this CPU does NOT come with a heatsink. That'll be on you.
Cons: - No problems here.
Other Thoughts: - The packaging gave me a laugh because the CPU was thrown into this giant, rolled up and padded delivery bag. Nothing really good or bad, I just thought it was funny.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: MASSCOOL 8WT15-38 90mm Long life Bearing CPU Cooler
Pros: Not much to say other than the title. But, if anyone was wondering, the back plate does NOT have any adhesive, which I thought was an added plus.
Cons: - Not a thing.READ FULL REVIEW
