This review is from: Cooler Master i500 - 500W Power Supply with 80 PLUS Bronze Certification
Pros: Cools better than stock. Not sure how quiet it typically is. I had an extra 120mm fan that I put on as a puller to the heatsink. The fans make a louder noise than my old heatsink.
Cons: Price is a little high. Fan a little loud (note there is another fan that did not come with the water cooler that may be the source of the increasing noise.)
Other Thoughts: I installed this to keep my Fx-8350 cool because I was getting freezing up on my computer. When I installed this cooler, I continued to get freeze ups even though my cpu temps were significantly cooler.
For instance my current CPUID temps are, CPUTIN 37C, AUXTIN 81C, and FX-8350 package 16C. I think the actual core temp is 16C. I think the AUXTIN is the VRMs.
Long story short, the freeze ups seem to be due to the VRM's on my 970 Motherboard overheating.
Pros: All copper
Cons: doesn't fit an FX CPU. The edges of the die of and AMD FX-XXXX CPU stick out underneath the small footprint of this heatsink. It does work as a heatsink, but not as well as a 3 year old heat sink that I bought that had a weathered surface.
I would recommend against this cooler for AMD FX Cpu's.
This review is from: Microsoft SIDEWINDER X4 Keyboard - Retail
Pros: I wasn't really looking for a gaming keyboard, although I am sure this thing would work well for that. I was just looking for a nice keyboard as I bought a few cheap ones in the past and was getting annoyed with them. This one is definatly good quality and I really like the feel when pressing the keys compared with other keyboards.
Cons: None for what I use it for.READ FULL REVIEW
