Pros: Cools Ram, Chipset, etc Stock CPU Cooler at full load - 65 degrees Celsius Gelid CPU Cooler at full load - 58 Degrees Celsius Stock CPU Cooler Converting on Hand Brake - 40FPS Gelid CPU Cooler Converting on Hand Brake - 80FPS Because this cools everything in the machine, it is a great fan for HTCP Easy to install, if you cannot install this then you shouldn't have your tech status above 2. Literally took me 30 seconds to install. Very slim design Nice bracket design Thermal Paste included (only just enough for CPU)
Cons: Low air flow because of the silent fan Requires the removal of the Stock back plate, and motherboard to install.
Overall Review: Great CPU Cooler, very nice design, and very slim. I would recommend it to any low profile enthusiast
Cheap but a ok Buy
Pros: Very Quiet compared to my old fan Insainly easy to assemble. (i child could assemble it in less than 30 seconds)
Cons: its really just Quiet due to the low RPM. The fans air flow is nothing in compaired to my old fan i have it on full power and the air flow isn't that great Shipping took 5 days not 3
Overall Review: its a good deal for $14. i was going to put it on my CPU but dont know if it will cut it.
Pros: fast easy to install Bluetooth optional long antenna to get the connection away from EMI upgradable msata wireless slot no driver needed on win10 fast 5ghz speeds. on this card I am getting well over 100mbps. just as fast as my wired connection
Cons: slow on 2.5ghz I have laptops from 2001 that get faster speeds than this card on 2.5ghz if you do plan to get this, make sure you can do 5ghz if you want the fasted possible speed. on 5ghz I'm getting a max of 120mbps on 2.5ghz I'm getting a max of 30 to 50
Overall Review: over all. fast card and very good. allows you to have wired Internet speeds on the wireless platform.
Pros: Nice design and nice colors 4 dimm slots FM2 ready HDMI out works great no issues whats so ever with the hardware Click Bios 2 are amazing very easy to overclock and Bios can be ran in windows
Cons: Control Center is slow SoutBridge Chipset gets very hot when you are on a full load.
Overall Review: My main issue is the South Bridge Chipset gets very hot, due to the 25MMx25mmx2mm size, and how thin it is, there is no possible way to buy a new heatsink for it or even mount a fan on the chipset.
Amazing Slim Case
Pros: Slim, durable, and looks cool. it has a lot of space in comparison to most slim cases. it has 4 rear slots for cards comes with a very quite fan to vent the heat out of the top. USB 3.0 and 2.0 3.0 can either go on a USB 3.0 slot or USB 2.0 on board Comes with stands that are quite decent.
Cons: Power supply comes out of the bottom, although it isn't that bad, but if the cord were to break you wouldn't be able to stand it up anymore. IO shield area is flimsy, it can bend easy when you put in your IO shield so be careful when putting in one Its made in china? (heh)
Overall Review: Over all its a very nice case, The Inside, size, and shape are very similar to the HP Pavilion Slimline s5000 Although this case has way more of ventilation spots over the HP Slimline I have yet to run the computer in the case yet. but I believe the temps would be similar to my I7 HP build I7 950 Quad Core ASUS Rampage 3 Gene Gskill 12GB of ram in 6 slots 400 watt PSU Radeon HD 5570 Scythe Shuriken Heatsink The I7 build ran at around 45 Degrees Idle My new build is AMD A8-5600K Trinity Quad Core 4GB G skill ram in 2 slots MSI A88XM-E45 M500 Solid State Drive no graphics card I will be sure to write another review on the temp when I get the chance Stock Heatsink
Decent for the Price
Pros: Very Long Cord USB 3.0 What else is there? its a USB cord
Cons: Disconnects some times. Although very long, it disconnects with USB 2.0 and keeps doing disconnect sound every second on USB 3.0 until I adjust it, as if it wasn't made correctly for USB 3.0
Overall Review: over all it still was a good purchase, although there are issues with it. There are ways to get around these issues and continue to use the product.
