Acer G6 Series G246HLAbd Black 24
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Very good color, no dead pixels, works fine with first-person-shooter games (per my teenage nephews, who are more demanding than I).

Cons: It's showing as not available on 1/4/14. Glad I bought one in December

Other Thoughts: Was a STEAL at $111 w/ free shipping (!!) in Dec 2014, but shows as unavailable today 1/4/14.

ASUS H87-PRO LGA 1150 Intel H87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Working flawlessly with i5-4670. Room around CPU slot for a big CPU cooler, SATA slots easy to get to. Windows 7 installed with no problems, but you will need the CD that comes with the board for some drivers (expected).

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: As another user said, there is no evidence of drivers for Windows XP. Microsoft is dropping support in a couple of months, so I am not surprised.

Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Big improvement over Intel fan 11/23/2013

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan

Pros: On brand new i5-4670 (not K) with ASUS mobo, I installed mono, memory, power supply, connected control wires, but not hard disk or PCI-e graphics card, and so went only to the BIOS screen. With standard Intel cooler and fan that came with the i5, temp settled at 39C. That's just looking at the BIOS screen, doing virtually nothing. Removed Intel unit (a long aggravating story) and put this Hyper 212 on. WITHOUT the fan, temp dropped to 35C. With the fan, it's at 27C, and the fan is almost silent - you just hear air.

Cons: Tall and wide. Pointed up and down, it conflicts with the PCI-e slot, so I changed it to side-to-side. That conflicts with one of the 4 memory slots, but I'm not using that slot, and if I do in the future, I can slide the fan up on the cooler to clear the DIMM. But.. you'll have no worries about clearing parts near the CPU because of the setoff screws. The suit sits high. Don't plan to use this unless you have a full-width case.

Other Thoughts: 27C idle temp for an i5 is all I could ask for .
