Pros: The CPU was cool as a mid spring night, and not a CPU fan stirred.
My computer cases fans are louder than this CPU at all times. Even when playing the most intense of games... Or two at the same time.
Cons: It doesn't like my motherboard, something to do with the difference in the pins of the fans. This things fans require more prongs than a normal cpu fan, thus cannot be used on the Mother boards cpu slot.
Other Thoughts: This caused the board to freeze up and crash during the bio-boot up. Not the CPU's fault, but something to keep in mind when buying a water cooled system. It wouldn't hurt if the manufacturers were to send a converter or some kind of device to trick motherboards during their bootup's.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It beats all other motherboards that I have owned out oft he water with only one issue.
Cons: I am unable to put my computer to sleep. My CPU is a water cooled system and the fans which that system require do not fit the Motherboards CPU fan pin. This gives me a error where by the motherboards bios are attempting to do a cpu fan check.
Once I overrode that check, he motherboard now refuses to allow the computer to enter sleep mode and crashes.
Other Thoughts: The combo deal I bought this motherboard and cpu with were a mistake.
Pros: It decimates the graphic needs that I have, and I do not even need to overlock it.
Cons: In time, it will age and it isn't watercooled without altering the card.
Other Thoughts: No matter what I am doing, I do not hear it over my computer cases fans and that is a good thing.READ FULL REVIEW
