Cooler Master Hyper T2 - Compact CPU Cooler with Dual Looped Direct Contact Heatpipes
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

3 out of 5 eggs Decent, but not quite there 07/27/2014

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper T2 - Compact CPU Cooler with Dual Looped Direct Contact Heatpipes

Pros: -Price
-Light weight
-Easy enough mounting (stock intel clips)

Cons: -Cheap construction (see other thoughts)
-Only slight improvement over stock cooler

Other Thoughts: Very cheap construction, the heatpipes along the base actually separated from the base a smidge on one side. Very little performance gains over stock cooling, however gains none the less (hence the 3 stars). Still, in my opinion I don't think the gains are worth the few bills...look elsewhere, there's better for the money.

5 out of 5 eggs Impressive Platter SSD Hybrid 05/09/2014

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drive ST2000DX001 2TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

Pros: Very pleased with the numbers on this drive. Speeds measured with HD Tune (Stock settings).

-Transfer Rate-
Minimum: 86.0 MB/Sec
Maximum 196.0 MB/Sec
Average: 157.8 MB/Sec
Access Time: 12.0 ms
Burst Rate: 152.6 MB/Sec

I'm using this as a stand alone drive in a new build, so the numbers would be even better as a secondary storage drive. As far as acoustics go, these drives are extremely silent. I'm using this in a Carbide 200r and I can't hear the drive accessing at all. Temps rarely rise above 30c, with no direct airflow over the drive itself.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: For a platter drive these numbers are impressive. The SSD acting as a "hybrid cache" makes your common tasks quite fast, and boot times are only slightly slower (maybe 10 seconds) than a stand alone SSD.

Awesome speed for a platter, silent, stays cool and a massive storage space. This drive is a win in my book, well worth the extra few bones over a non-hybrid version.

Intel Pentium G3220 Haswell Dual-Core 3.0GHz LGA 1150 54W Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics BX80646G3220
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I'm impressed so far. For being a budget processor this thing performs amazingly. I haven't really put it through the paces yet, but from what I've seen so far...this is one of the better options for a low cost machine. Video playback, email, music, student work, office work, handles everything with ease.

Cons: None, for the price.

Other Thoughts: Look elsewhere for mid-high gaming.
