Intel Core i7-2600K Sandy Bridge Quad-Core 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 3000 BX80623I72600K
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I purchased two of these on 5/31/2011 - Yes 2011. They both are OC'd to 4.8GHz and are running solid and reliable on air cooling. I'm running EVGA SC 640GTX running Titanfall @ max settings. See my system specs below - I built a system with i7-3770K Ivy Bridge 3.5GHz in 2013 and only achieved 4.4GHz.

Cons: Virtually no cons with the exception that the price has barely changed for such an old CPU. Consider that newer CPUs (i7-3770K Ivy Bridge 3.5GHz) are priced the same. If you are looking for Long Term, this chips bast days may be behind it, but it's more OC friendly then newer Ivy Bridge CPUs.

Other Thoughts: I've not had systems as future proofed as these were. Sys specs when built in 2011 - ASUS MAXIMUS IV EXTREME (REV 3.0) - Cooler Master MegaFlow 200 Sleeve Bearing 200mm - G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) - CORSAIR Gold AX1200. Originally had a EVGA 580GTX upgraded to 680GTX

2 out of 5 eggs Tight fit on the ears and Tiny Sound 07/03/2012

This review is from: Corsair Vengeance 1100 3.5mm/ USB Connector Supra-aural Communication Headset

Pros: Very solid chord - doesn't feel cheap or flimsy
Volume and mic controls are at a good length from the headset
Plastic construction overall is solid, lightweight and feels sturdy
More solid construction than the Logitech G330

Cons: Sound is not impressive - compared against the Logitech G330 the sound lacks mid range or base response
There is no way to widen the head band so the headphones push a little too snugly on the ears. If you have hair partially over your ears, you'll be in for an even tighter fit.

Other Thoughts: I purchased these on a Newegg sale deal for $24.99 and at that price I'm not satisfied.
The sound quality is Frequency response is supposed to be 20Hz–20KHz yet my Logitech G330 headset delivers much better mid range and lows and is rated at 40 Hz–18 kHz

The angle of the ear pieces is too snug and there is no way to widen them. Wearing them for extended periods pressed against your ears starts to feel uncomfortable.

At the full $39.99, I can't recommend these - you should definitely consider another brand/model

ZALMAN CNPS9900MAX-B 135mm Long life bearing CPU Cooler Blue LED

4 out of 5 eggs Updated Review 06/20/2011

This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9900MAX-B 135mm Long life bearing CPU Cooler Blue LED

Pros: I had time to compare two other high rated coolers and this one is hands down the best CPU Cooler for keeping OC'd temps down for the i7 2600k.
*i7 2600k @ 4.8GHz - Idle 34 - Load 82
*Other fans breached 90 on load
*Better than the Noctua NH-D14 120mm & 140mm SSO
*Much much better than COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus RR-B10-212P-G1
*Price to performance excellent
That's not saying this is the easiest CPU Cooler to install. It is NOT: See other thoughts

Cons: *Use of sticky/double sided tape to mount on motherboard instead of screw in hardware mounts.
*very small print images on instructions - requires viewing youtube video to make proper sense
*lack of clarity on air flow in instructions
*Increased difficulty install on motherboards with tall heatsinks around CPU

Other Thoughts: I've Never had a let down on install using Zalman fans in 10 builds. This fans outperforms other high rated fans I purchased to compare. I'm dumbfounded why Zalman went with the sticky/double sided tape solution. If you aren't installing on an ideal motherboard (low heat sinks around CPU) getting an angle on the install screws while applying pressure can be a serious challenge/frustration. Once I got passed the anxiety of the install (the 2nd time) I realized how good a performer this fan is. Performance trumps Frustration - I huge star taken off for documentation and install issues
