Rosewill RCX-Z90-AL - 92mm Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Not bad 06/06/2015

This review is from: Rosewill RCX-Z90-AL - 92mm Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler

Pros: Although the details state "Socket LGA 775 ( TDP under 86W )", I use this on 120 Watt Xeon socket 771 processors (on socket 775 motherboards using the mod sticker) and this puppy performs just fine. It's good even with 20% overclocks, but obviously not much higher than that.

It keeps processors about 5-7 degrees warmer than good HSFs, but good enough for grandma or little nephew/niece's use.

Cons: Although the clips on the motherboard are better than the stock Intel one (which are garbage), after 30+ times of use (I have to test multiple processors), it starts to bend a little. This won't be a problem for most people as you simply put it on and forget it. I use it for testing.

Other Thoughts: It blows air inside the case. If you want hot air to move outside the case, buy the ones that are directional towards the back of the case.

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 5450 1GB 64-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card ( 100292DDR3L)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Obviously, fanless means it's quiet.
Runs well, no problems.
Has most of the available ports, which is a bonus.

Cons: Doesn't get too hot. Does get warm, but not burning to the touch hot. When I get a chance, I'll probably throw a small fan on it though just in case.

Other Thoughts: Sure, you won't be playing Crysis at 60 FPS, but this is good for anyone who's not doing hardcore gaming. I only purchased this for the rebate. Hopefuly I'll get it.

I took 1 egg off because Sapphire RMA is shady. They will start their two year warranty from the MANUFACTURER date printed on their graphics card, not on when you actually purchase it.

So an example is I purchased a $200 graphics card in December of 2013. I had to RMA it and realized that their legal paperwork states their two year warranty starts from the manufacture date printed on the card, which was around August of 2013.

So depending on how quick the reseller gets their inventory in and out, you may find yourself with as short as a 1 freaking year warranty!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Don't be an idiot and do your homework.

Crucial M4 CT064M4SSD2 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Both DED, DYING, after 2 years 04/29/2015

This review is from: Crucial M4 CT064M4SSD2 2.5" 64GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: They worked for almost two years.

Cons: There is a known issues with this model that after how many hundreds or thousands of hours (I forget which), the garbage collector no longer works and what happens is you can start Windows or whatever OS you are using, but randomly (30 mins, 1 hour, whatever), the drive will no longer be recognized by BIOS. Windows does a BSOD. If you do a warm reboot, BIOS does not recognize a drive is connected. You must do a cold reboot, then BIOS sees it again and the process repeats. Crucial support confirmed with me this is a known issue. They say one option is to plug the power cable in the drive while the SATA cable is unplugged, and boot the computer up. Let it sit overnight and rinse and repeat 2-3 times, and it should resolve the issue. I tried that. Seemed to help for a day, and the issues came back. I do not recommend this junk unless you enjoy this kind of problem.

Other Thoughts: BTW, this happened to both the drives. One followed 2 months after.
