Rosewill RCX-Z1 - CPU Cooler - Ball-Bearings for Long Life - Over 45,000 Hours of Service
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs a little better than stock 03/18/2014

This review is from: Rosewill RCX-Z1 - CPU Cooler - Ball-Bearings for Long Life - Over 45,000 Hours of Service

Pros: - simple install
- comes with a fan controller
- using it in a HTPC on a6-5400K. I can run the fan down to 25% which is quiet enough for a HTPC.

Cons: - At full throttle, it's loud.

Other Thoughts: For the price, it's better than stock plus you get a fan controller to boot.

3 out of 5 eggs no media center??? 03/18/2014

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 64-bit

Pros: - fast boot
- simple install
- I'm using classic shell so I have no issue with the tiles

Cons: - I'm severely disappointed that Windows 8.1 regular edition does not include the media center. Windows 7 Home edition included media center. Now, if you want to use media center, you have to upgrade to Pro. I specifically bought this for a HTPC only find it didn't have media center. Thanks a lot MS,

Other Thoughts: If you want to use this for a HTPC, you need to buy the pro version.

Classic shell work really well. Takes it back to a windows 7 like desktop.

AMD A6-5400K Trinity Dual-Core 3.6 GHz Socket FM2 65W AD540KOKHJBOX Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) with DirectX 11 Graphic AMD Radeon HD 7540D
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - low power
- perfect APU for HTPC setup
- more than enough umph for video, internet, DVD, or whatever you need for a HTPC

Cons: - stock fan is meh. I always upgrade to a better one to keep the CPU cooler as a cool CPU lasts longer.

Other Thoughts: So pleased with this APU that I built for son's HTPC I ordered another for my own HTPC build
