This review is from: MASSCOOL 8WA743 92mm Long Life CPU Cooler
Pros: Pair this with Arctic Silver Thermal Compound, and it's decent. It keeps the CPU cool. Once installed (see below), I haven't had to mess with it, other than blowing out the dust bunnies periodically.
Cons: It's pretty loud (in an airflow kind of way) if you have nothing else making noise in the room. Fortunately for me, the TV is nearly always on and other noises are present. It's also pretty big, and I had a little trouble getting it mounted on the CPU and mobo correctly.
Other Thoughts: I probably won't be buying another one of these on my next build. It's okay for the time being, though.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G
Pros: This is the best thermal compound ever made. I wouldn't use anything else, especially not the stuff that comes with HSF's.
Other Thoughts: I've been using this stuff for years with no issues.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit
Pros: Everything just works. Microsoft hit the nail on the head for desktop OS's.
Other Thoughts: A lot of people like to bash Microsoft, but I think they come out with some nifty stuff. I wouldn't go near Windows 8 or 8.1 due to that awful Metro interface, so this is what I use.READ FULL REVIEW
