Most Critical Review

Purchased this as auxiliary bulbs to add color to my room

MagicLight Smart Light Bulb (60w Equivalent), A19 7W Multicolor 2700k-6500k Dimmable WiFi LED Bulb, Compatible with Alexa Google Home Siri IFTTT

Pros: -Works great as a regular light bulb(very bright when only using white) -Connects to your WiFi and can control the bulbs from your phone and is a pretty convenient feature

Cons: Unfortunately the actual led colors on this bulb are very dim and add no colored light to the room. Was extremely disappointed to find out that they add no color to the room and only emit a very dim color from the bulb itself

Overall Review: Overall if you want a cheapish way to get a set of “smart” bulbs that you can control brightness and turn on and off from your phone this is a great option. But if you where like me and hoping to add some bright and vibrant colors to a room I would look elsewhere.

Just doesn’t preform as a good as it looks

Pros: -It’s super cheap (picked up on sale for $16) -Pretty silent under load -Led ring is pretty bright and vibrant -Overall looks really good -It’s better than stock the heatsink

Cons: -Included thermal paste is the wrong kind of cheap and recommend using something else -It’s a 4 pipe design disguised as a 5 (2 of the pipes are only half pipes, so you technically get only 4 cooper heat pipes per left and right side) -Not really rated for 160W -i7 2600k @ 4.2 GHz will idle at 50C and stays around 90C under load -Preforms a lot worse than a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo

Overall Review: Eh you get what you pay for and would honestly pass on this cooler if you plan on even trying a mild cpu overclock as it just doesn’t preform as good as it looks. Like I said in the cons, the included thermal paste is really poor (7-8C drop just by changing out the thermal paste) and by the time you buy better thermal paste like an Arctic Silver or something you might as well buy a 212 Evo or Gammaxx 400 as those will overall preform better and come with decent thermal compound out of the box. Running an i7 2600k(95W TDP) with this cooler I could not hit past 4.2ghz without thermal throttling compared to using a 212 Evo that was able to hit a stable 4.5 GHz @ 70C under the same circumstances.
