This review is from: Noctua NH-D14 120mm & 140mm SSO CPU Cooler
Pros: - It was a breeze to install, Intel installation was easier than AMD's I must say.
- Keeps my 4690K overclocked to 4.6Ghz @ 1.265v cool under stress testing 75C~ (FPU Stress), 60-65C (normal stressing)
- Pretty darn silent, I leave my PC on all the time it's nice to have it quiet while I watch TV or sleep.
- Quality, you can feel it.
Cons: - Color scheme, although it doesn't bother me much. I think it looks rather premium.
- Somewhat expensive, but totally worth it
Other Thoughts: I mainly when for Noctua due to their silence reputation and I am not disappointed. I could have went for Thermalright or Phanteks for a better color scheme and similar performance but I figured that I'll give Noctua a try. My first cooler from them and I am very impressed. I even bought 2 Noctua NF-A14 FLX's because of this cooler.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan
Pros: This cooler is better than my old 120mm Radiator liquid cooler, dropped the temperatures from 52C to 42C in prime95 (both temps OCed FX-6300 4.2Ghz). It's pretty quiet if you ask me. I do however have another fan running the heatsink in a push-pull config and good airflow to my case.
Cons: None that I can think of
Other Thoughts: For the price, there's really nothing to complain about it. If you're coming from the stock cooler of an Intel/AMD CPU, this will definitely keep your CPU cool for mild overclocking. I'd recommend this cooler to anyone that needs a great budget cooler.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I like the solid construction of the physical SSD, it feels solid and performs great. Boot times are really quick on Windows 8.1. No more slow downs like on my old HDD
Cons: None I can think of! The read speeds seem a little slow than the write speeds though.READ FULL REVIEW
