Rosewill RTK-PST - Digital LCD Power Supply Tester
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs It works. 07/03/2015

This review is from: Rosewill RTK-PST - Digital LCD Power Supply Tester

Pros: It works!

I had someone bring over a dead Desktop, I also had a old Rosewill PSU that I shorted out accidentally while trying an experiment with a cheap, high flow fan from the Shack.

Well, I was able to show the person their PSU was fine, and it was their MB that was bad.
I also found out my Rosewill is still working within specifications 10 years later.

And the PSU on and old desktop I was about to toss is indeed bad, and cause for constant issues I used to have.

Size, wasn't expecting it to be so small, about the size of my smartphone and fits in my pocket. Length is 5 inches, diagonal is 5 1/2"

Simple and easy to use, just make sure to read all warnings

Cons: Not sure there is any, Rosewill has been good to me so far. 10 years+

Other Thoughts: If you are thinking about getting one, but are on the fence... get one. It may save you the stress of wondering if you rPSU is bad or not.

It would be nice if future PSU's had some thing similar built-in

Beats using a multi-meter to check each pin/wire

Cooler Master GeminII S524 Ver 2 - CPU Air Cooler with 120mm Silencio FP Fan  and Accelerated Cooling System
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Big improvement over stock CPU fan from Intel.
Big fan and heatsink
Can position/rotate in 4 directions
Can use for future CPU's if I upgrade to supported socket
In current position, adds extra cooling for G.Skill RAM

Cons: Downward airflow, yes, I knew this when I purchased
I think sideways airflow is probably more efficient as your are not blowing warm air towards the CPU/area you are trying to cool.

I would be interested in seeing the tests comparing airflow downward vs upward airflow on this heatsink.

I would think pulling air from below up and away from the CPU/ RAM and out through an exhaust fan/power supply would be slightly more efficient. But then again, I am only a tech and not an engineer... what do I know?

Other Thoughts: Ran Prime95 with stock fan 90*C easily within first 2 minutes

Ran Prime 95, using Asus Probe II and Speccy
Speccy reports MB temp or 62*C as highest
ASUS Probe II reported CPU as 61*C highest

Since it's an ASUS MB, I assume that is correct
And what Speccy reports as CPU is probably the temp sensor in the Heatsink's fan.

But I will gladly take 62* or lower while running a stress test, normal usage should stay between 30-40*C, I would expect.

Stock fan is 120mm, but supports a 140mm (should be in specifications section).
Part of the high temps for me, I believe, are due to the case, lack of large high volume fans, and lack of liquid cooling... duh.

GearIT GIHDMI14MINIWH10FT 10ft White High-Speed 1.4 Mini HDMI To HDMI Cable with Ethernet Support 3D and Audio Return M-M
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It works!
It supports 3D and other features

Cons: It doesn't not work?

Other Thoughts: Nice length for the price, it was a little hard to find this combo of HDMI adapter ends.
I picked this because of the support for 3D, currently not using it. But I do have an HD Samsung Monitor w/ 3D that may eventually be used with the computer/video card this connects to.
