Noctua NH-U12S 120x120x25 ( NF-F12 PWM) SSO2-Bearing ( Self-stabilising oil-presure bearing ) CPU Cooler
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I used to water cool but prefer this heatsink much better because it keeps the temps down in the low 30s C, even on my overclocked i7 4770k. This thing is whisper quiet and even though it's tall, it does fit inside an Antec 1200 case without the side fan on the door panel.
Comes with multiple mounts and assorted connectors. I love the option of adding an additional fan if needed.

Cons: The color if it bothers you but no big deal to me. Not docking an egg for it.

Other Thoughts: This unit does not block any of the ram slots on the Asus Z87 pro board.

ASUS Z87-PRO LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Great overclocking board right out of the box, no issues. Wifi is cool but I prefer Ethernet for my main desktop. The Dual Intelligent Processors 4 for Four Way Optimization program that overclocks the entire system is very very very cool!! I wanted an overclocked system but didn't want to spend hours doing it like the old days, this did the trick and probably better than I would have.
Plenty of fan headers (x4 cases fans + CPU fan header) to allow the Fan Expert2 program integrated with Dual Intelligent Processors to tweak your OC to the best settings based on your equipment.
Lots of Sata connectors and USB connectors.
Asus put a lot of thought and planning into these Z87 boards, well done Asus!!!

Cons: None

CORSAIR HX Series HX850 850W ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: The modular design is a must and the fact that the connectors slightly snap into place gives you that solid connection feel. I have no complaints with the modular ribbon cable designs, it works. I am running an Azuz Z87 + i7 4770K CPU OC'd and the fan only runs when the load requires it and so far it has not kicked on at all. I am running an Azuz Z87 + i7 4770K CPU OC'd, 32gigs ram but no video card. I over bought my PSU for the future.
Lots of cables, that's a nice bonus!

Cons: The bags for the cables and PSU are really not necessary. In fact they could have reduced the cost a bit leaving those out. I guess I will find something to use them for.
