Enzotech CNB-R1 Forged C110 Pure Copper Heatsinks only
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Effective 04/10/2015

This review is from: Enzotech CNB-R1 Forged C110 Pure Copper Heatsinks only

Pros: Very effective as a zero-maintenance replacement for the stock heatsink & fan on a Sans Digital HA-DAT-4ESPCIE 4-port SATA/RAID card (SiIicon Image 3134A chip). The heatsink is just the right height for this sort of use -- any taller and it would block more than one PCI slot. Pure copper -- good heat-transfer, but you have to be gentle to avoid bending fins. The optional fan-mount is handy for straightening or protecting them.

Cons: The springs on the included push-pins seem too weak to keep the heatsink from shifting if the PC is bumped. I re-used the pins from the card's old heatsink.

Other Thoughts: The plastic mounting brackets are 53.5mm, 59mm, and 67.4mm.

Accell Model B119B-007J 6.6 ft. Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort Cable
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs working well after 2 months hard use 06/22/2014

This review is from: Accell Model B119B-007J 6.6 ft. Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort Cable

Pros: The cable is working flawlessly with a 24" (1920x1200) IPS monitor. It's only been two months, but this monitor swivels several times a day and pivots (portrait/landscape - major cable flex) several times a week.

It was also much easier (compared to the old DVI cable) to thread through the conduit it shares with a bunch of other cables.

Cons: None so far.

Seagate Desktop HDD.15 ST4000DM000 4TB 5900 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Installed 8 of these 18 months ago, and just had my first failure. The drives have been under heavy 24/7 usage in RAID enclosures, in a hot and stuffy equipment room. Because of the conditions here, the drives are usually 25-30% above the max recommended temperature.
Given how cheap these were, I'm impressed -- I expected more failures, and sooner.

Cons: They do fail, obviously, and though these 5900rpm drives do run significantly cooler than their 7200rpm counterparts, you still need decent airflow if you want them to last.
