This review is from: MSI 790FX-GD70 AM3 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: I love this board. You can look inside the case and there is a digital readout that tells you exactly what it is doing every second it is powered on. There is indicator leds all over the place that tells you your hard drive activity, your cpu and how many cores are in use, your ram chips and which ones are in use. Everything is just so user friendly and I never seen so many settings in a bios. It's like being in the engineering bay of the starship enterprise and boy does she fly.
Other Thoughts: I am running a 3.4 gig phenom x4 with 8 gig of ripjaws ram and a ati hd 5850 vid card. and a 850 watt corsair ps. Also a zalman cpu cooler on it and all that is just the icing. This is the cake!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I have to say it is very smooth. I have tried Crysis at max settings, gta4 at max, mass effect 2 at max settings and never even got a rise in the fan speed. highest temp so far has been 63c on crysis. under normal windows use like now my gpu is at 35c. Absolutely great! Dont ask about the manufacture disk drivers I didn't install them after reading all the reviews. I went to ATI website and downloaded them.
Other Thoughts: I love this card and if it blew up today a week after buying it I would lay down another 300 for it in a minute.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9900ALED 120mm 2 Ball Low-noise Blue LED CPU Cooler
Pros: Ok you want the scoop. Bought the first one five months ago for a friends phenom x2 that was running hot. Upon installation I stress tested it and the temp has never went above 46c. So when I built my new Phenom x4 gaming system I went with it. Under full load on my 3.4 gigahertz Phenom Quad Core I have never went above 45c. Under normal use it is right now at 31c. If you want a really great cpu cooler. This is the one!
Cons: Its big.... Really Big.... Couldnt use my memory cooler with it.READ FULL REVIEW
