This was a pain in the arse to put in.

However after I got it in it was all good and it worked like a dream.

Oh, AMD. You shall never be as great as Intel ever since you just gave up in the mid 2000's, but you still make one hell of a bang for your buck processor. for £105, it's the best eight-core processor you can get for the price.

I've always heard if you're making a build, you always have to have Corsair Vengeance RAM. So I bought it, and it's brilliant.

Being a hard drive, it does its job of saving stuff and now my ten of gigabytes of 'educational videos' are safely secured in this. Go porn! I mean, educational videos with hot girls in them.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's corsair, it's quality and it could probably beat the Netherlands in a penalty shoot out., 11 July 2014

So simple to click in and nothing complicated to make. Just a couple of plugs and a bit of cable management and then it's as silent as Spain at the 2014 world cup.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great, but a pain in the arse to put on an AMD processor, 11 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great product, it cools well and for £17, it does the job nicely. However, trying to put this thing on an AMD motherboard was the most stressful two hours of my life. Yes, it took TWO hours. And the first time I thought it was on the processor it wasn't, and it fell off. Whoops. However, nothing broke and so finally I found that only one side was hooked on. The retention plate is confusing to make, as the instructions give no allude to it in detail. I say if you're making a new computer look at the stock cooler given with your processor, and use that as a guide. Or even better, just buy an intel motherboard and processor, and save yourself this whole hassle. With an intel, you just screw it on. Why can't AMD be this simple?!?

Anyway, it's a quality product. A bit big, but you need it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid, 11 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have constantly dropped my phone/iPod, which is why I've always needed a case. This otterbox basically ensures that my clumsiness will not claim the life of my iPod, and for £15, it's not too bad. It feels solid and grippy, and the ports are all lined up, although there is a hole at the top which seems to be a mystery to all who buy it. It doesn't matter though, as it's a great product!
