Pros: faster than light (screw Einstein) with only windows 7 no extras was 30-33 seconds boot, with everything else I use installed (specifically anti-virus) 35-38 seconds.
Cons: Had BSOD for 7 of my 9 months, finally the drive just crashed (not showing in post). When it finally showed back up (leave attached for an hour or so while pc is on.....tech support advice) my "former" system partition showed as "not initialized".
Other Thoughts: can't rate 0?READ FULL REVIEW
100% customizable overclock (free evga precision software)
offers sli, cuts through every game I have thrown at it (1920x1200 @ highest settings ..resolution being the monitors max) no problems on any output.
runs at 80-85+ (22-26ish ambient) C when you let the fan pick the speed (and running folding@home gpu @99%) and anything over about 58% fan speed is loud, (ungodly loud at 100%..which is only available with a free evga firmware update).
Other Thoughts: will be replacing the stock cooler with an arctic cool accelero xtreme plus cooler, and hope that that brings the temps back down a notch.....nothing else seems to, and I can't have my gpu being the ONLY noisy thing in my caseREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Noctua NT-H1 Thermal Compound
Pros: Had some "factory" installed paste on my old pc that left my old pc at 55ish (max 61 on that processor) under full load from prime95...NOT overclocked. (amd 64x2 3800+ 939 2.0g) replaced the stuff the builder put on it for me with this, dropped the temp 7c. Not bad for just paste. currently using on my new pc i7 2600k @ 4.6 (will be raising this) with the noctua nh-d14 running at around 58-60c under full load (tried both prime95 or intel burn test)
Cons: not free?
Other Thoughts: would highly recommend this or just about any product from noctua.READ FULL REVIEW
