$4000 PC Destroys $4000 iMac in Lightroom Performance Test

Being a PC guy this is no surprised to me, but for some odd reason Mac users still think that a Mac can outperform a PC that costs the same. Well this test should put those thoughts to bed. The guys over at SLR Lounge compared Adobe Lightroom performance of a $4431 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K display to a $4370 custom built PC.

CRYORIG M9i CPU Cooler Review

CRYORIG burst on to the cooling scene not that long ago and every cooler we’ve seen from them has been pretty impressive. The coolers we’ve reviewed from CRYORIG have been their high performance coolers, but what about someone who just needs a basic cooler? Something better than the stock cooler that comes with their processor? When it comes to a basic cooler there are a few things we believe it needs to have. First and most importantly it needs to have better performance than a stock CPU cooler that ships with the processor. Secondly it needs to be easy to install, no one wants a complicated install process, especially a first time builder. And finally, it needs to be affordable. CRYORIG thinks that they have a cooler that fits these specifications in their M9 CPU Cooler. They say it is 33% cooler than the Intel stock cooler, it shouldn’t take more than a few minutes to install, and currently the cooler is selling for $25.99 at our favorite online retailer. Seems too good to be true? Let’s jump in and see what the M9i is all about!
