TATUNG TRC-6UDW White 5.5 Cup Electronic Rice Cooker

5 out of 5 eggs I'm still cookin' 02/02/2014

This review is from: TATUNG TRC-6UDW White 5.5 Cup Electronic Rice Cooker

Pros: The translated instructions are fun to read. "Push tab down to make cook happy rice."

The teflon coating is holding up well.

Most Important: It doesn't burn rice!

Cons: None

XFX HD 5000 Radeon HD 5450 DirectX 11 HD-545X-ZQH2 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It's a $30 Card! Is plenty of power for running standard computing, such as web surfing, Netflix, and simple gaming.

Cons: I bought this for an patch build I slapped together. After referencing my stats with the Catalyst driver manager, I noticed the card was running at over 70 C with out me doing anything. AT this idle temp, longevity concerns me a bit. Since this case has poor ventilation, I ordered a PCI slot fan into order to coax some air of the heat sink.

Other Thoughts: This card may run happy as a clam for years at over 70 C? It might just be me, but I'm not comfortable with electronics being at that temperature.

Check around when you're purchasing in this price range; there are a bunch of options. If I would bothered doing my homework, I would have spent $10 more and purchased a GPU with active cooling.

Pros: I don't have to worry. Benchmarks like a champ and heat is not an issue, even in a moderately ventilated case.

This was my first G Skill purchase, they now have a returning customer. I just purchased another set to max out my dimms.

I am currently using my i5 gaming rig to run Computational Fluid Dynamics (modeling software) which is the equivalent of benchmarking your PC everyday. I originally kept an eye on my stats, but she runs through hours of heavy load without a care.

Cons: Uh, not free?
