This review is from: ASUS Z87-PRO LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Seems like a nice MB.
Cons: Hangs on two different disks from previous computer when these are connected to the on-board SATA controllers. When the disks are connected to a PCI-E Sil3124 the disks work fine and computer boots.
Also, drives on the CD that came with the MB worked, bu the ones from Asus.com did not match.
Pros: Worked for a while
Cons: Died after a whileREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H50 120mm Quiet Edition Liquid CPU Cooler - Intel Only
Pros: I've owned many a large fan and overclocked many a computer and this thing has me impressed.
I took a 2.8GHz Yorkfield and it ran 33-36 on the cores with no load, and 38-42 on the cores with 100 load in BurnInTest in the test Max CPU temp.
Clocked it up to 3.7GHz, ran the test again, core temps 42-45! This is where my 7i920 with the largest Zalman fan-based cooler hit 70. I litterally had to check the performance meeters to convince my self that the test was actually running.
(i know somebody will say that my Zalman cooler is not correctly attached, but it's been on and off many times now and is put on with the "rice-sized-droplet-of-artic-silver", so it's done right.)
Cons: Ok, the cooler didn't quite fit the case so the cooler element is hanging outside the case attached with plastic straps.
Other Thoughts: You should check the temperature on other components that sit around the CPU and normally rely on the air flow from the CPU cooler.READ FULL REVIEW
