This review is from: Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G
Pros: Best stuff out there.
Other Thoughts: I will only ever use this. Under no circumstances should you ever use the stuff comes with any of your stuff. Not exactly my words, my tech head brother told me. Hasnt pointed me wrong yet.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Handles pretty much everything I throw at it. As a pretty avid gamer, I use one monitor for games, and the other for movies / music etc. Zero lag ever.
That said, I know next to nothing about CPU's.
Get a good chip, keep it cool, keep it powered = winning.
Cons: Nothing yet. Still runs. I expect I wont need to upgrade for awhile.
Other Thoughts: What I did notice is that this chip runs slightly warmer than my previous one. Using an after market heat sync. Suggest anyone who builds their own rig to splurge on a decent heat sync, as the one it came with was joke. I wouldnt even let my wife use it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Well put together. Love the bios of this. Simple ,and easy to use. The book that came with it was helpful as well.
Cons: No cons yet. Works as advertised.
Other Thoughts: Please notice the tech level!
Encountered the always lovely BSOD. It was due to memory timers being off. Not a big, as the fix was quite simple, something to look out for though.
Since this is only 1 of 2 higher end AMD boards on Newegg, I wish there was more of a selection to look through, as I would of paid a bit more if needed.
Bottom line: Board is great. Does what I need it to do, and is dumb easy for someone to work with. Highly recommend this for a first timers build.
