Pros: Perfect for a Intel x58 motherboard, first generation i7.
XMP sets this up very well. Timings 7-7-7-18.
Runs cool and fast.
Newegg's price is very good.
Delivered on time, no blips.
Other Thoughts: Asus P6T Deluxe OC. Palm board.
Seasonic S12G 650W PSU
Zalman 10X Performa cooler.
Crucial 240GB SSD
NZXT 210 case.
This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS10X Performa 120mm Long life CPU Cooler
Pros: Sale price, rebate, free shipping.
Very good cooler, I own a pair and a handful plus of Zalman coolers.
This one, 5 tubes, 10 locations, bring hot air into the cooler. One piece bottom works better than separate tube or "direct contact". Have proved it.
Compact, fits most Mid Tower cases.
Fan sits low on the cooler, helps cool areas on the mother board, example: North Bridge.
Other Thoughts: Zalman's paste is pretty good, I have found that Antecs Formula 7, Nano Diamond, is better. Newegg has it here.
Good for 5C less in temps.
My first generation i7 W3565 (i7 960) idles at 23C, loaded @33C. My 930, 2 940s and 2 950s are within 1C of this. All have Zalman coolers. My i5 systems do well also. It speaks for itself.
This review is from: BitFenix BFA-MSC-8EPS45WK-RP 17.72" (45cm) Intel EPS 8-pin Extension Cable M-F
Pros: Very decent cable, very flexible to get around in the back of a computer case. Come in colors if you are a decorator.
One of those item that are needed once in awhile for a new build. Wires are wrapped with sleeve.
Cons: Quality is there, but they are not cheap.
Other Thoughts: Have several in use, black, blue and now white. Different colors have different prices. What ever is the least.READ FULL REVIEW
