Cleopatra 2525: Complete Season 1 (Box Set) [DVD]
Dvd ~ Gina Torres

5.0 out of 5 stars A lot of fun, 29 May 2016
Very much the level of "B" Movie Science Fiction standard, which tends to be the most enjoyable and fun level that Science Fiction can operate.

It is great plus point, that the show was filmed in Australia, with the nation's famous beach culture really and bright sunshine really influencing the writers and costume department. Yelp, everyone is showing as much flesh as can be shown on mainstream show back in 00's. Gina Torres, who went on to be the most famous actor involved in the 13 episodes (Firefly and Suits). The writers may have spent a lot of time writing the episodes on Australian beaches. LOL

Additionally, the outfits are very much at or around Australia's most famous film franchise: Mad Max styling. Fortunately, the TV series skimpy outfits are a plus point, because modern Science Fiction has a tendency to put actors/actresses in more clothingh than people today wear. This does tend to make the future look like something from the medieval age in terms of clothing.

Refreshingly, the series does not import aspects from Science or Philosophy to create fake sensation that people are cleverer or wiser in the future than today or in the past - yeah, those groan moments with regards to Vulkan Logic (that never conforms to any known rules in philosophy) and the Uh moments at actors/actresses talking about stuff being stuck in "transporter buffers" or nonsense about "tachyon beams" .

Essentially, it just goes straight into watching beautiful people dealing with, events in the best way they can.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very Short, 29 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very short and not as versatile as hoped.

There are better options, but opting for the USB 3.0 extenders, which allow more flexibility in GPU placement.

On plus side, compared to a USB 3.0 option, this does not require any additional power connection, because it can drew its 75watts max through the motherboard

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value at this price, 29 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very good for the price! 80 plus rating and has internet reviews as well, producing power at 46C.

But, only 2 PCI-E connectors and adaptors need for 4 GPU PC builds.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, on a toasty GPU's (R9 290/R9 290X, 29 May 2016
Very good for very hot running GPU's, like R9 290 and R9290X.

The default package does not include correct components for R9 290/290X, but you have 2 choices: a) buy the R9 290/290X kit, some sellers are selling it for £5.35 on the internet.

Or for frugal minded, b) get a dremel kit and mod the default package, a youtube video shows these mods to the default package. This consists of grinding out the two screw holes on the main power component cooler to fit the R9 290 mounting holes, grinding down one of memory cooler fins so it fits under the mounting plate for cooler and cutting another small cooler to form a T shaped cooler for the second set of power components.

These items are included in R9 290/290X adaptor kit, which is sold separately.

In terms of performance, using the default attachment to GPU header a R9 290 overclocked to 1040mhz goes from 94C to 68C. Yes, that is 26C lowering in GPU temperatures. Fan are pretty quiet at 100% as well, especially when compared to default blower. There is, also, a 7v adaptor cable in the default package for those looking for near silent performance, but this is not really appropriate for R9 290/290X - whose heat output is the stuff of folklore.

Tip: PC case side fans need to reversed to extract air, as opposed to pushing air into the PC case, because of fins structure on the cooler the side fan on some PC cases need to suck the air away from those fins. This may not apply to many PC cases, but for those that have a side fan installed this tip makes 12C difference.

And, on top of it all, this GPU cooler is good looking item in any windowed PC case. Do remember: once installed on the GPU, the entire card will take up 3 slots.
