This review is from: Intel Pentium G3258 Haswell Dual-Core 3.2GHz LGA 1150 Desktop Processor BX80646G3258
Pros: Great lil' Overclocker
Fun chip to play with
Cons: Nowhere near the performance on the 4970k... but we all know this
Run a tad on the hot side compaired to other chips within this TPD range.
Other Thoughts: Bought this chip purely for fun. Purchased a 4970K for everyday use. Using the Gigabyte Z97X Gaming GT, I was able to hold a "stable" 4.8Ghz @ 1.32vCore (LLC=low). However; do NOT expect to do this using your typical air cooler. I run a Full custom liquid loop (I say "liquid because it's not always "water") with 3x PMP500 pumps and quad (4x) Black Ice GTX-360 rads. "Should" be able to do 4.5Ghz using a "cheapy" H100i self contained LCS easy. Those who say that this chip cannot do 4Ghz+ simply don't know what they're doing.
Fun chip to play with; but not "gaming" standard in any sense of the word. (Especially with modern multi-threaded game titles) So if your looking for a "gaming" grade chip; opt for the i5 4670 (or 4670"K" if you plan on overclocking).
This review is from: GTX660TI 1G DDR5 graphics card
Cons: This is a scam as with all the graphics cards this company sells. Avoid like the plague.
Other Thoughts: Already had Newegg remove the GTX770's this company was offering which were actually GTS250's (9800GT). they have been reported and acknowledged by Nvidia as a "scam". Manufacturer of their cards has also confirmed they they DO NOT make any computer related products; rather they manufacture electronic cigarettes.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: -Strong blade construction
-High static Pressure
Cons: -None after 10 months of operation (24/7)
Other Thoughts: Installed 6 of them on a dual socket 16-core Liquid cooled server in Feb 2013. Server is on and running 24/7 (folding @ home). Installed on to a Black Ice 360mm radiator in push/pull configuration. server is located in an outdoor shed keeping both cpu @ or below 25*C @ 100% load across all 16 cores.
Purchasing 8 more for my Coolermaster 935 Stacker gaming rig.
