Rosewill RCX-Z775-LP 80mm Sleeve Low Profile CPU Cooler
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs It's an ultra low-profile fan and heatsink combo 06/20/2017

This review is from: Rosewill RCX-Z775-LP 80mm Sleeve Low Profile CPU Cooler

Pros: It's surprisingly well made, machining was above par, clips were robust and worked just like the Intel clips.
It's very low profile, only about 24-25mm taller than the CPU.
When your motherboard supports it, the pwm fan can be very quiet.
Very reasonable cost at $13
It stays well within the area Intel deems the "do not intrude in this area" zone. Too many heatsink makers stray out of that area.

Cons: Nothing really...maybe free coffee in the offer?
Couldn't really find any cons.

Other Thoughts: For all the people complaining that this heatsink doesn't work well doesn't know what they are doing. This is a fan and heatsink designed for 65W and below TDP processors. It's not even a replacement for the stock Intel heatsink and fan.

Use this heatsink only when space is tight, like in a NAS server or low-profile system. If your space constraints have more allowance, use something beefier, like the Intel heatsink and fan.

The Noctuas have better performance but their pricing starts at 3X higher and their shortest unit requires 37mm clearance.

5 out of 5 eggs Good quality latched cables 06/13/2017

This review is from: Coboc Model SC-SATA3-10-LL-BK 10" SATA III 6Gb/s Data Cable w/Latch,Black

Pros: Cheap
Short head
Latched

Cons: Ordered 10, 1 was missing a latch at one end.

Other Thoughts: Was suffering from unrecoverable parity errors from multiple drives in my freenas box. It was the cables. The cables that came with the case was poorly shields. Replaced them with these, all the parity errors went away.

5 out of 5 eggs Another LSI SAS 2008 adapter that can be flashed to IT mode 06/13/2017

This review is from: Dell PowerEdge R410 R210 PERC H200 6Gb/s PCI Express x8 SAS SATA 8-Port Raid Controller card 47MCV CN-047MCV

Pros: It's inexpensive at $50

Cons: No half-height bracket included.

Other Thoughts: Bought the Dell PERC H200 to flash to IT mode. Had to do it the UEFI way. It was a PITA, but it worked, lots of scary moments where I thought I bricked the card. Make sure you have the proper breakout cables if you're using SATA drives.
