ARCTIC Alpine 11 Pro Rev. 2 CPU Cooler - Intel, Supports Multiple Sockets, 92mm PWM Fan at 23dBA
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Installs without removing MB!!
Not too expensive.
Mounting system worked well with push pins.
Pre-applied thermal paste.
Works on 1155 socket.
4 pin connector

Cons: Fan noise about the same as Intel fan - temps the same.
Cooler had to be installed vertical - not horizontal because of RAM modules.
Corner suspension parts very flimsy - one broke - does not affect performance.

Other Thoughts: I needed a cooler that I could use with a 1155 MB - cost less than twenty dollars - fan noise about the same - temp about the same - no vast improvement - make sure the fan is all the way down on the frame before you screw fan down - installed mine twice to make sure fan made contact with CPU - installs without removing MB - this was a big plus without access to back of MB -
good secure pushpin mount - stable on MB - overall, I did not have as much improvement as I had hoped - nice
cooler overall - probably would buy again.
In the end, I adjusted fan noise in the bios settings.

5 out of 5 eggs Enjoying Small Fractal Design Case 03/18/2015

This review is from: Fractal Design Core 1100 Black MATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Pros: Small size cabinet and no front fan opening to attract dust.
2.0 USB and 3.0 USB
Painted interior
Just enough room for small PC components.
I like the illuminated power button.
Fractal Design fan is quiet.
Side panels go on and off easily - nice thickness.

Cons: Went on sale this week - bought mine last week.

Other Thoughts: I have had this case for a week now. All of my components transferred great. The vertical HD mount is not bad - I mounted my SSD on it and used the lower 5.25" bay for my mechanical HD. Overall, the case is small and will work well for someone wanting a small PC setup. I was able to manage cables with use of zip ties. I purchased this case for a new look for my current components.

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 5450 DirectX 11 100292DDR3L 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: None

Cons: I received this yesterday - worked with it last night and today. I tried two different computers and to no avail.
I would not pay $9.99 for it - realizing that I paid $19.99 last week. One piece of junk. I will do something different next time.

Other Thoughts: I bought this because it was supposed to fit my small case - it fits, but it does not work.
