This review is from: XIGMATEK Gaia SD1283 120mm Long Life Bearing CPU Cooler LGA1150 Haswell Compatible
Pros: At STOCK speeds, the max temp would hit 75C when playing BFBC2, running Prime95, or video-editing w/ Vegas/AE. With this cooler (CPU now OC'd at 5Ghz) max temps float around 55-60C. Pretty awesome.
Also, Installation wasn't too rough.
Cons: Huge, make sure you measure your case to see if it fits.
Other Thoughts: Great cooler for the price. A little big, and will (slightly) sag due to the natural weight, but is 100% sturdy. Allowed me to bring my 2500k to 5Ghz stable!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Great case, roomy, fans are extremely quiet on their low setting. Reasonably priced, and tons of options.
Cons: Inside isn't painted black, but you can't have everything!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great little processor, runs smoothly and lightning fast. Easily able to reach 4Ghz. CHEAP!
Cons: As many have said, the stock cooler is absolute garbage. This baby can be overclock to 4Ghz on air, but with this cooler it reaches dangerously high temps. I'm sure I could hit 4.5Ghz+ with a better cooler that should be in the mail soon.
Other Thoughts: Buy it!READ FULL REVIEW
