This review is from: Aluratek AKB505U LED Backlght Keyboard
Pros: I bought this one because it seemed a good value for a lighted keyboard. Over all it is a decent board, but not a great one. I love the large letters on the keys and you can choose three different color light. Works great in dim rooms and looks good. Keys felt a bit strange at first but have grown use to them.
Cons: Even with the little feet down the board is a little flat. After a few months 2 keys got "sticky". You feel a slight mechanical resistance when pushing those 2 keys.
Other Thoughts: Good lighted board for the money, Just not a great one.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G
Pros: Spend 1 or 2 grand to build a new computer, the number one killer of any computer is heat, and nothing works as well as Arctic Silver. It has been the go to product for this purpose for over a decade and should be a part of any computer builders kit. One tube allows for multiple applications and good for 8 to 15 builds depending on cpu size. I usually lose my tube for it goes empty. Do the math,50 cents worth of this product will lower your system temperature by 3 to 8 degrees. Where else will you get that kind of cooling improvement for so little.
Cons: Can be tough to clean up, use their sister product Artic CleanREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: For 20 years I have tried various thing to remove heat compound and nothing works like this . It melts way those sticky heat pads that come on stock coolers so you can use your own compound, cleans up artic silver and similar substances with ease. If you work with computers on a regular basis this must be in your tool box.This now has a place in my little zip lock baggie of thermal paste tubes for ever.
Cons: That they didn't tell me about this 20 years ago.READ FULL REVIEW
