This review is from: Arctic Silver Arctic Alumina 5g Thermal Adhesive Set AATA-5G
Pros: Seems to function as stated. EXCELLENT instructions.
Cons: INSTRUCTIONS ... read them BEFORE you buy!!!!! Per the instructions the adhesive is conductive and measures must be made to protect the leads. The instructions do not come with the product.. you have to DL them from the site!
Other Thoughts: The instructions point out that IF there are exposed leads, these should be covered in "non- corrosive" silicone, which is not supplied.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GELID Solutions GC-VGA02-02 Ball VGA Cooler
Pros: Large high quality heat sink, and fans. HUGE assortment of AL heat sinks for other chips. Well written instructions. All parts were there. Fans are not overly loud but as single speed they are louder than stock when the card is not being pushed.
Cons: Given the pros indicate all is well... there are "slights"
The biggest slight is that the fans are single speed. I looked on the package and sure enough.. single speed. The other issue is design... by making the unit fit so many AMD GPU's the design for my card required the cooler be offset away from the backplane and thus into the case. It extends far beyond the card edge and deep into the case. Small cases and this card (with this cooler) would not be compatible.
Other Thoughts: This card (Sapphire 7850 Dual X) is not now, nor will it be "mining", however it has done so in the past, and was great at it. However it is "folding" which can put nearly the same strain on the GPU and cause heat. So far the cooler does work well and is quiet if the stock fans were at high RPM ( 65%). For the price, this is only a fair deal. For near the same money I could have water cooled ( parts on sale).READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: PC Treasures Black ChargeIt! Portable Power Pack for Charging Mobile Devices 08858
Pros: Quality seems good for the money. Design and build quality seems good. Batteries are 2700.. These are very high capacity batteries and make the deal exceptionally good.
Cons: It seems that the unit really does need to use the 2700mhA batteries. While other batteries will "work" any lesser battery simple will charge very slowly or/and incompletely. Thus do not expect to use the unit with batteries other than what came with it or equivalent.
Other Thoughts: Used on a trip, and it worked well with included batteries. Makes for a nice handy portable battery charger for other items ( camera).READ FULL REVIEW
