Pros: All metal enclosure
large rubber mounts to keep harddrive noises quiet and vibration free
Cons: Died after 5 years off use, just stopped connecting to the computer, I tried different USB ports, Different PC .. same thing, intermittently turns on and the goes away.
I originally thought the HDD died, but it turns out it was the enclosure.
Other Thoughts: for $40 it lasted 5 years, and didnt kill my HDD inside. I'd say it was worth it, so I'm placing an order for another one.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Amped Wireless RTA2600 High Power AC2600 Wi-Fi Router 802.11a/b/g/n/ac
Pros: Great wired and 5Ghz speed and performance. Lots of features.
Cons: The 2.4Ghz constantly drops out on both my laptops in different parts of my house- im only 10 feet away and I only get a range between 72-144MB/s.
The wifi range for both 2.4ghz and 5ghz is terrible.
Other Thoughts: At this price range go for something else.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SilenX EFZ-80HA3 80mm 3rd generation fluid dynamic bearing Effizio CPU Cooler
Pros: The fan is quiet and moves air, I definitely recommend it for case fans.
Cons: Where do I start.
I got this cooler while putting together an old Phenom build. It looks like it would be a pretty decent cooler! Boy was I wrong. I couldn't figure out why my cpu was getting so hot "i will give temp figures later"! its fully secured down and very very tight to the point it hurts your fingers to put the dam thing on. So I said well lets throw some money at it to see if it will help.
I purchased 2 high CFM PWM fans with great static pressure and put them in push pull config and i also got some arctic silver thermal paste. well that didn't help it was idling at 38C and after a 15 minute load test temps peaked at 70C ...
So i took the cooler off and put the stock one on and viola it idled at 26C and 48C at load.
the cpu for reference was a Phenom II X4 965
