Pros: This is prob one of the best heat sinks if your thinking of building a htpc or even a small it's build My cpu temp with stock heat sink was idle around 50-60 after using this heat sink and some artic silver 5 thermal paste It went down to idling at 30-35 impressive result highly recommed
Cons: It took a little while to setup for you need to remove the motherboards stock heatsink holder
Overall Review: My current build A10 7850k Gigabyte a88x WiFi mb Corsair vengeance 8gb ram Diypc gold mini cube (great tiny case) Noctua NH-L9A Corsair 550 watt full mod psu Gigabyte r7 250 crossfire
Pros: GREAT SMALL SIZE FOR A HTPC BUILD, it comes in a nice gold color which stands out. fits in most places
Cons: extremely poor airflow, no room to move, it says it will fit 70mm fans which is a lie,
Overall Review: This case was built for a friend who wanted to put the computer in a tv shelf. the button being on the top of the case made it impossible to turn on the cpu, the case wires are extremely long which makes no sense, the case is small as it is making extremely long cables just defeats the purpose of a small case, the wire gets in the way or a fans.
Pros: amazing monitors, i was so used to buying samsung or dell monitors. my friend recommend that i try a ben q monitor and i did, i end up buying two for a dual monitor setup. great display and with only 2ms this baby rocks!!!!
Cons: the adjustment for the mounts aren't able to level up or down.
Pros: NOCTUA makes awesome heat sinks, however my amd build was getting to hot due to the new APU form factor for amd, i had to return the whole build and also return this heatsink =(((
Cons: too expensive, however gets the job done, a little hard to install if you dont know what your doing, need to remove the whole motherboard cpu panel just to install this
Overall Review: im staying away from AMD APU socket chips they over heat and doesnt deliver the performance they say
Pros: LOVE NOCTUA they make amazing heatsinks, my stock cooler only gave me 36 on idle which i felt was too much for not doing anything, I replaced that junk with one of these and it is like night and day, i was idling at 26-28 and during gaming loads was getting about 42degrees amazing heat sink
Cons: the heat sink is too low for the motherboard, had to return it and stick with a rosewill low profile heat sink which only dropped the temp down to 33 which isnt that bad, considering it was only half the price.
Overall Review: GREAT HEATSINK, easy to install
