5.0 out of 5 stars There are excellent Youtube videos showing the fitting of the Freezer 7 ..., 27 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I recently installed an ARCTIC Freezer 7 Pro Rev 2 - 150 Watt to an in situ 1155 motherboard. Although the sensor in the bios had to be turned off to avoid the boot-up stopping with an error report, I was sufficiently impressed with the cooling ability and quietness of the fan to buy an ARCTIC Freezer 13 - 200 Watt Multicompatible Low Noise CPU Cooler for a 1150 motherboard.

There are excellent Youtube videos showing the fitting of the Freezer 7 and the fitting of the Freezer 13 is very similar in principle but more fiddly in practice. Initial impressions of the more powerful Freezer 13 are even more favourable than those of the Freezer 7.
It didn't cause an error message in the bios
Cooling appears to be even more effective from the more powerful fan.
The more powerful fan may be even quieter.

As the price difference is minimal, the Freezer 13 is the one to go for.

I took care to use a small screwdriver to attach the heat sink to the plastic frame to avoid cracking the plastic by over tightening the screws that secured it to the heat sink.

5.0 out of 5 stars Neocore C1 Review., 14 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought the Neocore C1 about a month ago and I consider it to be excellent value. As a mobile device, it has to compete for my attention with a 5-year-old netbook and a more sophisticated and excellent 7 inch Kindle Fire HD. However, the Neocore C1 is the machine of choice, every time. In this review, perhaps unfairly, I use the Fire HD as a reference point.

# The screen is bright (I use it at 11%) and seems to be at least as sensitive as that of the Kindle. However, its less sophisticated construction means that colors are slightly less vivid and the viewing angle is not as wide.
# Wifi reception is adequate and stable in all rooms in a large house with solid walls. However, wifi reception on the Kindle is better, again due to more sophisticated electronics.
# Whereas Kindle Fire HD sound can only be described as “excellent”, sound on the Neocore is adequate and appears to be improved by use of freely available apps.

So why is the Neocore C1 my device of choice, and not the Kindle? Well, its failings are relative to the Kindle, rather than absolute; the device is eminently usable and no machine is perfect.

Also:
# I greatly prefer the 10.1 inch screen size of the Neocore to that of the 7 inch Kindle screen
# The processor seems to be at least as good as that in the Kindle
# The 10 inch Neocore is not much heavier than the 7 inch Kindle
# Battery life is excellent and seems to be better than both the claimed life for the tablet and better than the Kindle.
# In spite of the fact that it is much bigger than the Kindle, the dimensions of the machine make it almost as easy to hold in one hand, while using it.
# The Neocore takes memory expansion cards but the Fire does not.
# The Neocore has a “proper” radio integrated into the SOC on which it is built, whereas the Fire does not – you can listen to the radio when there is no wifi signal.
# The machine is assembled in the UK and comes with a 2 year guarantee

There are a number of very good (in both senses of the word) reviews of this machine on the Amazon site and one of those good reviews refers to a possible finickiness regarding memory cards. I have tried 2 cards in the machine and have found that both work well.

5 star value.
