2 out of 5 eggs Thermal Grease with 3/4 the Amount Missing 06/04/2016

This review is from: ZALMAN ZM - STG1 Thermal Compound

Pros: This thermal grease works but other than that, I don’t see anything significant here. My temps didn’t do anything extraordinary and left me wondering whether I’d get the same result if I didn’t use any grease at all. At this point, it rates a 3 simply because it’s thermal grease.

Cons: This bottle was about ¼ full when I opened it today right out the package and the brush tip could barely reach the grease. By the time I applied the grease as directed (on heat-sink and CPU), the brush no longer reached what little is left in the bottom. Hey Zalman, what is up with that? I feel cheated. If I pay for a bottle of thermal grease, you should at the least give me what I paid for. The amount in this bottle could’ve fit in one of those small plastic tubes that comes with a new heat-sink fan. For shorting me on the amount, I’m taking away 1-egg.

Other Thoughts: Plain Jane thermal grease that doesn't do anything extraordinary and came with 3/4 the amount missing. No, I don't recommend this, and I won't but it again.

3 out of 5 eggs Good Foundation for a Beefy System 06/01/2016

This review is from: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: I had to RMA this motherboard the same day it arrived but decided to do a review on it anyway. Once the replacement arrives, I’ll do a follow-up review after testing it for a few weeks. I’ve always been leery of electronics in unsealed packaging, and this board came in an unsealed wrapper within and unsealed box. Not surprisingly, it had a problem: 2 of the memory slots didn’t work. The board comes with a pre-printed I/O panel that makes it rear of the PC neat & orderly. Components on the board itself were also identified very well which allowed me to install the motherboard headers without having to reference the owner’s manual. With 16GB of memory in single-channel mode, I loaded Windows 10, and was pleasantly surprised. Even though it was malfunctioning, the board is fast. The bios GUI is easy to navigate and even has an over-clocking section. Smooth OS installation and all components were recognized by Windows 10 without using the included driver disk. I used the HDMI output and graphics quality was impressive, bright, and colorful.

Cons: I took off 2 eggs for the malfunctioning memory slots. Also, the board is a non-standard size -- the length is shorter, so the final edge of the board doesn't match up to the last row of screws in an ATX case.

Other Thoughts: I imagine that when everything actually works, that this is an excellent motherboard.

Pros: It does everything you need a optical drive to do plus lightscribe support to create your own labels.

I have 2 of these drives and they always perform with no problems at all. They're fast, reliable and even look great in my PCs.

Cons: None.
