Pros: - The speaker is fairly loud and clear
Cons: - Lens was scratched out of the box
- Image was blurry at even moderate distanced (approx. 2m to screen)
- Bluetooth and Miracast would not connect
Overall Review: - A comparable name-brand projector is 3x the cost. For a reason.
- Although it displayed a 1920x1080 desktop, it was so muddy, I find it hard to believe it is really the native resolution.
Pros: * Standard Size
* Good Output - Single Rail 12V
Cons: * Flat cables not as much of a space-saver as I had hoped
* PCIe cables are single 6+2; need four (4) for SLI
* Fan spins up to 100% at random intervals without any real change in DC load
Overall Review: I have been completely snakebit on PSUs in the last year or so. I have had four (4) EVGA 1000-P2 units fail (UVP cutouts on 3.3V rail @ < 2.8VDC), so I am hoping this Silverstone unit will do the trick.
Pros: I saw the claims and I couldn't believe it. I have been a dyed-in-the-wool AS-5 user since... well, for a long time. I read the Benchmark Reviews 80-way TIM shoot-out and I thought I'd give it a try, anyway. I was expecting 2 or 3 degrees C from AS-5.
THIRTEEN DEGREES better than AS-5. No s---.
I bought this TIM for a new i7 project, but thought I would try it out on a known system. So, I used Arctic Cleaner to remove AS-5 I had applied in April/May. It was fully cured and the HSF was fully seated with even pressure - "i"s dotted. "t"s crossed. Full load stable temperature - 59C. Ok, nothing to worry about.
First Load Test with GC-Ex: 42C. WHAT?!!??! I loaded up multiple instances of Orthos, Prime95, CPUBurnIn, 3DMark06... 42 degrees.
Even if there was a variance in room temperature... What? 4-5 degrees C. That's still the same 12-13 degrees C claimed on the package. That's just AMAZING.
Cons: It's not as thin as I was lead to believe, either. It's closer to AS-5 than not.
Overall Review: The spreader is perfunctory if you're used to the AS-5 "grain of rice" and pressure method.
