Rosewill RCX-Z1 Long life ball bearing for over 45,000/hrs CPU Cooler
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: large but not so much as to interfere with ram. plenty of surface area to effectively cool most CPU's/APU's

Cons: ONLY 57cfm on max. the fan on this thing is PUNY meant for airconditioned offices. replace the FAN with a 92mm delta or 92mm vantec tornado and save buyers the trouble of doing it themselves

Other Thoughts: The heatsink works great, but the fan is not up to cooling much of anything in an unairconditioned Louisiana mobile home. I replaced the included fan with a 92mm vantec tornado, and now my 6800k stays under 50C after hours of gaming on high graphics settings.
The included fan is too weak, get a better fan to put on this like a vantec tornado or a delta.

With the included fan this was still better than stock cooler which idled at 53c. this heatsink idled at 47c with the puny included fan. When I traded that fan out for a vantec tornado, my idle temps dropped to 39c and load temps dropped to 48c.

I use AS Ceramique thermal paste, but its good this comes with compound already on it for those that forget to buy some.

As i said the included fan is TERRIBLE but the heatsink itself is great, and the fan is easy to replace so I won't dock an egg, and I do highly recommend this cooler, just bear in mind you need to upgrade the fan.

Vantec Tornado 92mm Double Ball Bearing High Air Flow Case Fan - Model TD9238H
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great airflow.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Yes, its loud, but in Louisiana, you can't have a 'quiet' gaming pc unless you live in a tiny airconditioned apartment or have the funds for serious watercooling. If you use this as a cpu fan as I do, and have a good set of 2.1 or better speakers, something with a nice sub, you'll hear your games and movies fine over this. Now if you tried using them to replace all your case fans as well, you'd have a problem, but as a single fan for cpu heatsink, you get used to the noise. plus it moves enough air to cool a richland 6800k with a mild overclock and keep it under 50c at full load in the sweltering Louisiana summer.
this is in a microatx tower, with a simple 92mm heatsink, and three cheapie case fans. Te only hard part is mounting it, since most heatsinks dont have screws for 38mm fans, but this is solved by using shorter screws through the bottom holes, and a screwdriver that is skinny enough to go through the upper holes. put a little loctite on the threads first, then install, and finally reattach the fan guard with its included screws, and you're good to go.

5M 5050 SMD 30LEDs/M 150LEDs Cool White Flexible LED Strip Lights Non-Waterproof DC12V
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: easy install VERY bright saves energy

Cons: None really. I reckon it /could/ be considered a con that you have to buy a separate ac-dc converter box, but that's just common sense so no egg lost for it.

Other Thoughts: Used as lighting for LAN party Computer Room. plenty of light without glaring on monitors, and runs off the same DC converter that powers the two electric radiator fans that circulate air and provide ventilation, so very convenient as well.
