This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan
Pros: Paired with arctic silver 5, it sits on top of my 4670k.
OCed to 4.2ghz:
Idle temps ~27-30
Under load ~60-65
Cons: Installing this was the hardest part of building my computer. As others said, the instruction sheet is nearly useless- I used it as a makeshift kleenex to wipe away my tears. Now, it's pretty simple to figure out how to put the thing on after a quick Google search; however, I curled up in the fetal position and wept at least three times while trying to secure it to the motherboard. The legs refused to evenly move into their screw slots and it's a miracle I don't have thermal paste smeared everywhere from the amount of times this behemoth slid across my processor during installation.
Other Thoughts: This thing is xbox-huge. It just barely fits into my NZXT Source 220.
Installation would probably have been easier if I had done it outside of the case, but the chassis has a cpu cutout and I needed the motherboard held in place because I don't have 6 hands.
Pros: I'll start off buy saying I did not expect to buy this card. I planned on upgrading from my EVGA 470 to another EVGA because I was happy with that one, and EVGA is a great company. However, I was ready for an upgrade, and for 200 bucks after rebate (and two free games) I decided to buy this card. I love it. The two fans are great, the card is aesthetically pleasing, it's built well, it's a powerhouse. It idles at ~26c and gets as high as about 73c. It's even smaller than the 470. PNY offers a lifetime warranty with a registration as well which was a factor in my decision to buy it. I dig it a lot.
Cons: -can get pretty loud under heavy load
-not the card's fault but the two games required uplay and it sucks. Hard.
Other Thoughts: I moved the computer to an area with better air flow and the card got a lot cooler and quieter.
It's a great card, it has a lifetime warranty, and it has a great price for an OC edition 760. It was an awesome deal for 200, and if it fits your budget, I recommend it.
Pros: -the sticks were free
Cons: None really
Other Thoughts: I was worried from reading other reviews that this RAM wouldn't work. The two sticks both came at the same voltage (1.35) and they work. And since they came with my mobo for free, I really have nothing to complain about.READ FULL REVIEW
