GELID Solutions GC-Extreme Thermal Compound
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Top of the Line Thermal Paste 09/01/2016

This review is from: GELID Solutions GC-Extreme Thermal Compound

Pros: Although the tube is unnecessarily large, there is a fair amount
Easy to apply with provided spreading tool
Better heat transfer than the competition according to online benchmarks/reviews

Cons: Could provide more paste in the tube
Packaging includes no instructions for first time users

Other Thoughts: I bought this because it's supposed to have the best performance of any of the non-exotic TIMs. Mostly I'm using this to replace TIM during upgrades or replacing the TIM on decade old hardware. It works well and is priced fairly for what you get. I have not tested it in any overclocking/high heat scenarios so I can't confirm it's performance in that respect, but it does perform better than thermal compound found on stock coolers from Intel. There is a high performance Zen or Kaby Lake build in the not so distance future I'll be using this in, so I'll be able to better assess it's value in an overclocking scenario then.

ADATA Premier SP550 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Extremely Well Priced Entry Level SSD 09/01/2016

This review is from: ADATA Premier SP550 2.5" 120GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) ASP550SS3-120GM-C

Pros: Inexpensive
Great upgrade for older systems or basic home/office users
Adata makes solid products IMO

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: There are a few very slightly cheaper 120/128GB SSDs available. They are Wung Fung Chu brands, and I couldn't bring myself to buy any of them. I've purchased Adata SSD's and RAM for myself and upgraded others with them in the past w/o issue. This is another smart for the money purchase if 120GB (111GB after formatting) is enough space for your main system disk.

MSI GeForce GT 710 DirectX 12 GT 710 1GD3H LP 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Video Card

5 out of 5 eggs Great Functionality And Compatibility For The Price 09/01/2016

This review is from: MSI GeForce GT 710 DirectX 12 GT 710 1GD3H LP 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Video Card

Pros: Works on PCIe 1.1 without issue
VGA/D-Sub and HDMI
No Noise, No External Power

Cons: DVI is digital only

Other Thoughts: For the price this gets you modern decoding and resolution capatibilities on older Intel 9 series chipset computers. Replaced an ancient Quadro FX3500 (7900GT) with only 256Mb RAM. Not only does this offer better overall performance (although that isn't saying much), it's silent, and the video decode capabilities have eliminated the stuttering I would sometimes experience playing back FHD or higher resolution video content.
