Cables Unlimited - VGA to S-Video or RCA Adpater - 5 INCHES

4 out of 5 eggs Works as it should but not What I needed 05/06/2010

This review is from: Cables Unlimited - VGA to S-Video or RCA Adpater - 5 INCHES

Pros: Works like it should. But this turned out not to be what I needed. great price for an item that I would have paid more for trying to find it somewhere else.

Cons: Kinda cheaply made, but handy if you dont have a digital signal running to a electronic that cannot accept a digital signal.

Other Thoughts: Nothing to say about the plug but my computer will only run digital signals through the vga port I have a old school tv that has a s-video input and thought this was what I needed. I have to by a video signal converter to compensate for this but I found one for $18.78 on another website that is used for digital security cameras. now I can stream video from my laptop to tv.

4 out of 5 eggs Good cooler 05/06/2010

This review is from: Thermaltake MaxOrb CL-P0369 120mm CPU Cooler

Pros: cool blue LED cools really well but still need some more
keeping my Phenom II X 4 b50 at 45c idle running at 3.7ghz

Cons: had to spread heat sink fins to keep the fans from rubbing at full RPM's. Huge compared to stock cooler but what else can you expect for better cooling

Other Thoughts: would like to see more cfm's or more heat pipes in this design to allow better heat dissipation.

one problem I have is the lack of air going through my case and the fact that my desk doesn't allow good air flow into the tower "cubby" Kept my cpu (before over clock) in high 30's-40's C before I moved it into the cubby. with amd cool and quiet turned off

AMD Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition Callisto Dual-Core 3.1 GHz Socket AM3 80W HDZ550WFK2DGI Desktop Processor
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: So i kept reading reviews of people unlocking the extra 2 cores and I immediately figure this would be a good deal. my old processor was a amd 64x2 5600+ running at 2.6 I believe. so this was a upgrade anyways. Never really tweeked with setting much but got the extra cores unlocked a few months ago. Overclocked it today!

Cons: with the extra cores unlocked and amd cool and quiet turned off this runs hot like mid 40's Celsius with a Max Orb running full speed

Other Thoughts: Amd overdrive utility took this to 3.7 running all 4 cores. stable idle at 45C not too bad gonna upgrade my cooler and add 2 more fans with a higher cfm to the case (only have 2 right now) and that should take care of any heat I have.
