Scythe SCKTN-2000 100mm Sleeve

5 out of 5 eggs great heatsink 05/07/2009

This review is from: Scythe SCKTN-2000 100mm Sleeve "Katana 2" CPU Cooler

Pros: great heatsink, absolutely overkill for the BE-2350 I have, but it was at a sale price and had free postage.

Cons: CPU runs too cold to cook bacon on, must use a frying pan on the stove instead. Running folding at home at the moment and sitting about 40C. No complaints.

Other Thoughts: Wasn't the easiest install job on an AM2 board, but didn't take longer than a few minutes. I didn't use the heatsink goop that came with it, but then I never do.

AMD Athlon X2 BE-2300 Brisbane Dual-Core 1.9 GHz Socket AM2 45W ADH2300IAA5DO Processor
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Decent speed for an incredibly cheap price. This was my basic system building chip for a while for anything that didn't need to use photoshop. I run Windows Server 2008, play games, do everything without any speed problems

Cons: It doesn't sing to me at night. Plus overclocking has had issues, but I'm not sure if that's the processor or board, I haven't put much effort into it.

Other Thoughts: It's hard to believe just a few years ago people complained about computers not being "vista ready", my $300 desktop today runs the latest server edition of windows. I originally bought it as a filler CPU until the 95W Phenom II's came out, but now I'm going to just stick with it until I actually see a need to upgrade

OCZ Throttle 16GB eSATA Flash Drive Model OCZESATATHR16G

5 out of 5 eggs fantastic drive 03/02/2009

This review is from: OCZ Throttle 16GB eSATA Flash Drive Model OCZESATATHR16G

Pros: Incredibly quick, so much more so than USB. I run a lightweight OS on it (a linux distro) without any hassles (just make sure you can boot from eSata before trying it. If it's not plugged in though, the system jumps to the second boot device. Easier than GRUB!)

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: What many other comments here haven't realised is that eSata ports don't supply any power, unlike USB. You have to give power to ANY drive you plug into an eSata port, the USB cable is actually the easiest solution there is (when you have a notebook it's easier than hunting for a power socket)
