This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC12DX_RD Dual 120mm PWM CPU Cooler
Pros: We have three systems with Phanteks units installed-any heavier duty builds are liquid cooled. This particular cooler is mounted on an i3-4150 which is running folding simulations. The folding client is set at "light" which is showing temperatures in the 40C/104F to 46C/114F range. Quite a drop from using the stock cooler. Since repetition breeds familiarity, installation was straightforward. If you're up to some fun, install it using one of the other language instruction sheets! However, if you have a smaller case, a little time and ingenuity may come into play-such as using 12 inch tweezers to attach the cpu connector. This installation is in a CM N-200. As with the other Phanteks coolers, this one is very quiet which is good when you're surrounded with three other systems.
Cons: As has been noted, mounting the cooler to the strip adapters can be daunting. Patience and finesse will do the job.
Other Thoughts: Would recommend to anyone needing a light to medium duty cooler. Since this is our third, we have confidence in the product .
Newegg shipping has been great as always-expected three day delivery and got it in two!
Pros: To paraphrase Mohammed Ali,"Glides like a butterfly, zips like a bee!" The movement is fluid across multiple surfaces and is quite fast across my chosen mouse pad, a piece of basketball court flooring. And no surface adjustments were necessary via the software. The quality of the ROG motherboard in my primary system is such that I could purchase this mouse with confidence. The extras included with the Gladius, particularly the feet and switches, were the deal makers. After hours of use, I've had no stress or fatigue in my right hand.
Cons: Not an ambidextrous mouse. Bit of a shame that those southpaws among us won't be able to enjoy the wonderful characteristics of the Gladius.
Other Thoughts: I would recommend this mouse to anyone who is right handed . The software is simple in function . Play with it a bit and you'll have a great gaming or general use experience.
Perhaps Asus could do something with this mouse that no other mouse manufacturer has done to help those of us stuck in the frozen areas of the US-install a heating element!
Pros: Handles medium duty folding work units with ease.
Other Thoughts: Great buy especially when bought on sale at half price!READ FULL REVIEW
