Pros: It works really well in my Corsair C70 case with just two fans other than the CPU cooler ones.
The stock fans are great, quiet, keep my 4770K between 32/36C idling. Goes up to about 45/49 while gaming. I've never seen it go above 50 so far.
Cons: It will block one of your ram slot on an MSI Z87-G45.
I read the previous reviews so I was aware this could've happened. Also I don't think this can be helped by running low profile ram because the actual cooler is a bit low.
I do feel a bit of vibration coming from it but nothing alarming in my opinion.
Other Thoughts: Besides the fact that it will most likely take over one of your ram slot, it's also a huge cooler. On my Corsair C70 case, it fits just right but it left me just 1/4" between its top and the lexan of my case.
Overall I am really pleased with the performance of this cooler with my setup.
MSI Z87-G45 mobo
8GB Corsair Vengeance 2400 Ram
Gigabyte GTX-770 4GB GPU
XFX 650W XXX Edition PSU
Corsair C70 case
Pros: Works as advretised
Cons: It got a bit frustrating at first but it's all good now.
Other Thoughts: I finally got it to post at 2400.
For some reason, my MSI Z87-G45 mobo would not let me set it at 2400 but after a bit of tweaking I'm running them at the right speed.
Awesome so far.
Pros: Really solid build quality.
BIOS interface is super nice, better than ASUS and all.
The layout of the motherboard is awesome, super easy to read and understand. (this was my second build)
The built in HDMI and DVI are super awesome.
Sound driver are top quality.
Cons: None so far.
only thing that made me knock an egg off is because the board is suppose to run ram up to 2800mhz without OC.
I bought some corsair DDR3 2400mhz and for some reason, I can only reach 1866. I'm hoping it's not the board and it's the ram itself but who knows. Until I get it to run right I'll keep it at this level.
Other Thoughts: Running an I7-4770K, 8gb DDR3, Thermaltake Frio cooler, Gigabyte GTX770 and a XFX XXX Edition PSU.
All runs good, idling around 30/35C
