Pros: Beast in SLI. Runs anything I throw at them in Ultra settings. Single card runs most games, adjusting settings for some games except Arcania Gothica 4....but forums say that it is a glitchy game so not GPU problem IMOPO.
Cons: Only thing I dislike is the side mounted power, but i knew it getting into it....however it does provide for better airflow in my case configuration,...so not so much a con for me....just an eyesore.
Other Thoughts: Temps dont get above 34C on top card and 30 on bottom, under load....but may be due to cooling configuration in my case. Fans aren't loud in my setup as I'm reading in other reviews.

(did have CPU OC'd to 4.4GHz.....but was unneccessary...consumes anything I throw at it)
Pros: Dropped this into an ASUS Sabertooth 990FX MOBO with a Cooler Master V6 GT Cooler and got a 4.3 GHz OC with multiplyer at 21.5 Bus frequency at 200 MHz and 1.475V with idle temp of 29C. Outstanding Newegg shipping as usual. This is my first build and is intended for gaming.
Cons: wasn't free
Other Thoughts: Never took the stock cooler out of the box, so cant comment on that. Case is CM Elite 430. Still need to run some tests to solidify these numbers but otherwise, Im completely satisfied and would definately recommend this CPU.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I am very satisfied with this purchase. For a case in this price range it stands alone. It is large enough to hold the large GPUs, plenty of ventilation, and enough screws to mount all u could possibly want in this case.
Cons: not enough to warrant an egg because i knew what i was purchasing, but a couple more fans would make a good deal into a great one.
Other Thoughts: just informative for those in a similar build: ASUS Sabertooth 990fx mobo with Cooler Master V6-GT CPU cooler is a snug fit for the case and for the 8GB (2x4GB) of G.Skill Sniper Series but it does fit. Turns out that u can press the color change button on the cooler without removing the panelREAD FULL REVIEW
