Pros: Keeps my Phenom II 965 BE ice cold, even with a mild overclock to 3.8ghz (note that I reduced the voltage to 1.4, your mileage may vary on stability). Temps are around 30C idle, and 48 after ten minutes of Prime95 torture.
Price was fantastic. I'm still waiting for the rebate, but if/when it comes it will have reduced the price to that of a half decent air cooler.
Fits in a medium sized mATX case (7" wide)
Cons: Noise. This is not the quietest liquid cooler available by any means. It's still quieter than the phenom stock cooler, but so is an airplane. The noise isn't worth taking off an egg, because any good cooler makes noise.
Other Thoughts: 2 year warranty is nice, hopefully it lasts longer.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This monitor is large, with nice pixel density. From where I sit, (30 in away) pixels are practically unseeable, and mine came with no dead/bright ones. Colors are vivid, and it came factory calibrated for out-of-the-box performance. Pictures taken on a DSLR camera are stunningly lifelike. Games perform similarly well, but the extra vertical pixels can stress a weaker graphics card on demanding titles.
Cons: If the DVI goes out, you're short on luck unless you want to use analog VGA. No hdmi or displayport. I can't in good faith subtract an egg for this, as Newegg makes no claims otherwise. I thought it did, but that was my own fault for misreading.
Other Thoughts: I would definitely buy this again: for the price, the quality and size of this display is difficult to beat.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: A good value, fairly quiet, and runs most games on max settings. The ps4 gpu is reputed to be extremely similar to this one (about 10% fewer stream processors), so look out for future titles to run well on this card
Cons: The thing is massive, blocks the pcie slot I was going to use for a network card. This is effectively a triple slot card thanks to the fabulous iceq cooler
Other Thoughts: I would buy it again, as it has met my needs.READ FULL REVIEW
