Kingston 8GB DataTraveler 100 G3 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (DT100G3/8GB)

3 out of 5 eggs Entry-level flash drive 06/24/2013

This review is from: Kingston 8GB DataTraveler 100 G3 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (DT100G3/8GB)

Pros: Decent read speed
No-lid design

Cons: Slow write speed
No activity light

Other Thoughts: Crystal Diskmark rates it at about 68 Mb/sec read and 5.6 Mb/sec write on USB 3.0, and 23 Mb/sec read and 5.5 Mb/sec write on USB 2.0.

So its write performance is slow, but it has decently fast read speeds. This suggests that it is better suited for data storage than dynamic cache or rapid transfer.

Construction seems large and sturdy, there's no activity light but the no-lid design means there is no cap to lose.

Arctic Silver Arctic Alumina 5g Thermal Adhesive Set AATA-5G

5 out of 5 eggs Does the job 06/20/2013

This review is from: Arctic Silver Arctic Alumina 5g Thermal Adhesive Set AATA-5G

Pros: Good amount
Bonds for life

Cons: Not much working time

Other Thoughts: Not a lot you can say about epoxy. Sets within a few minutes, so you have to be prepared and work fast. Bright white color, if that matters. Keep it in your fridge and use as needed.

As others have noted, do not use this if you ever want to separate the items again. As with all epoxy, this turns 2 objects into 1 object, so you probably don't want to use it on your CPU.

I've used it to stick small heatsinks onto cheap external power adapters, to keep them from overheating.

GIGABYTE GA-970A-UD3 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Great features for the price
Plenty of USB ports
USB 3.0, 2x external and 2x internal
Dual BIOS prevents BIOS flashing tragedies
Good for overclocking

Cons: Terrible placement of SATA ports
NB and chipset run hot

Other Thoughts: Been my main board for a year and a half, running an FX-4100 OC'ed to 4.2 GHz. It's been a champ. I did add a couple 40mm fans to keep the chips cool, but it hasn't let me down once.

The other commenters aren't exaggerating about the SATA ports though, if you have more than 1 HDD you practically have to disassemble the thing to get at them. That's REALLY annoying, enough to drop it an egg. But if you don't have a lot of drives, and never add/remove them, it shouldn't be much of a problem.
