This review is from: RAIJINTEK RHEA, 3pcs 6mm perfprming Heat-Pipe, 9225 PWM Fan, Compatible with Intel LGA 115x & AMD AM2/AM3 CPU, Easy installation & User Friendly, Light Weight and 130 mm Height for Most Desktop System
Pros: Really low price compared to similar units. Pins snapped into place easier than most. Easily fits into older mid tower case.
Cons: Had to remove the fan to push in the last pin in the motherboard. It was murder to replace the fan in a confined space between the case fan and the power supply. Took about 30 minutes of fiddling with the clips to get them latched onto the fins and fan openings simultaneously.
Other Thoughts: Used it to replace the stock fan on a Q9550 LGA 775 CPU which was running 54deg C under load. This fan reduced the long term temp to 44deg C. Worth the effort.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-P43T-ES3G LGA 775 Intel P43 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Bought it in 2011 for a low price. It can handle about any LGA 775, currently using a Q9550. No problems. Stable thru three CPU upgrades. Burns thru DVD copies in no time.
Cons: Wouldn't interface to a 100MB Iomega drive thru the parallel port with Windows 7 installed. Had to remove it and install Windows XP.
Other Thoughts: With all the old connectors it connects to a floppy disk drive, a serial mouse, a parallel dot matrix printer, and runs lots of old software on Windows XP that hasn't improved or been replaced since. Plus it has SATA connectors so you can use modern DVD burners. It's in use about as much as the main computer.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great price with free shipping. It looks new and the date indicates it's only two months old.
Cons: Checked it out upon delivery with HDD Guardian. It found no errors or issues (or any use) but it said the hard drive was 5400RPM. It had been so long since the last one I just assumed it would be 7200RPM. Will make an excellent backup drive.
Other Thoughts: It came from goharddrive.com instead of Newegg. They shipped it in a hard box with bubble wrap inside a USPS Priority Mail Mylar bubble wrap bag. Also, the icon that HDD Guardian showed was for a WD Passport, not a bare drive.READ FULL REVIEW
