This review is from: CRYORIG R1 Ultimate Dual Tower Heatsink for AMD/Intel CPU - Black
Pros: Easy to install, includes a special screw driver to simplify installation. On my i7-5930, temps sit around 29-30C and the heatsink is mounted vertically. Note: I have 3 way SLI. I am going to pick up a 3rd fan to mount on the top to force the air out my top exhaust fan. Must say I love this heatsink. Gives water cooling performance without the worry of pumps going. I've had 2 closed loop water coolers failed in under a year with the pumps failing. Will never buy another CLWC.
Cons: Not a one. originally though i was going to have clearance issues with my RAM till I i could mount it vertically. Someone said something about "pin matching," no clue what they are talking about. Installation was a breeze. My only issue was the 8 Pin 12 volt wires from my PSU, but they reached. motherboard has 2 8 pin connectors and I was able to snake one around either side of the heatsink. Wish the PSU wires were longer so I could route them behind the MB tray.
Other Thoughts: My Build:
Intel i7-5930 3.5 GHz 6 Core (Stock clocks for now, this motherboard keeps failing to post when I change settings like XMP RAM)
Gigabyte X99-SLI Motherboard (Want a ASUS X99-E WS, but not paying $800 and the one Newegg had listed as Open Box was a Refurb and defective, so had to RMA. Refurb is NOT Open Box Newegg!)
32 GB DDR 3000 (Patriot 3000 C 16 Series 8GB x 4 QUAD Channel)
3 way SLI GTX 980s (Will go 4 way when new Nvidia cards release)
5 SSD RAID 0 (558GB Total Formatted) with 1.5 GB/s Read 1 GB/s Write OS Drive
3TB HDD Storage Drive

This review is from: ASUS Model USB 3.1 TYPE-A CARD USB 3.1 Dual Type-A PCIe Card
Other Thoughts: it's a PCIe 3.0 x4 lane, not x2 lane. That's a throughput of 3.938 GB/s, notice the capital B for bytes. USB 3.1 is 10 Gbit/s, lower case b for bit. 8 bits = a byte so USB 3.1 is it is 1.25GB/s x 2 for a total of 2.5 GB/s, which is less than the total throughput of a PCIe x4 Lane slot @ 3.938 GB/s with 1.438 GB/s to spare. They could of really gotten away with a x2 lane as the real world likelihood of you using the total 2.5GB/s throughput of both USB 3.1 slots together is slim to none. Doubt you'll find any USB flash drives capable of putting USB 3.1 to the test just yet, even if you had a 2 slot M.2 enclosure with 2 really fast SATA3 SSDs in it. If they even use the 2 drives in a RAID 0 to begin with. That would be maybe 550 MB/s x 2 for a total of 1.07421875GB/sREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: QQLinx Owl Eye Full HD 1080P Night Vision Car Dash Cam - 8GB Memory Card Included
Pros: Great Dashcam, video quality is very good. I've been using it for a few weeks now and got a 64GB MicroSDHC Card for it. I drive for a living and it holds more than a full days worth of 1080p recording. Couldn't be happier.
Other Thoughts: One of the few that uses the common MicroUSB charging cable over the old/cheap MiniUSB many others use. You can usaully tell quality by this feature and it prove to be right in this case.READ FULL REVIEW
