Pros: Keeps my i7 4770K nice and cool. Idles at about 26C, doesn't ever go over 50C even under stress
Inexpensive investment for the benefits it gives you
Cons: Thermal paste instructions are a little weird, but go nice and light with it and it works fine.
Other Thoughts: I'm really happy with this cooler so far. As long as you make sure you've got the fan oriented correctly with the airflow through your case, it'll keep your CPU nice and chilly.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Runs every game I've thrown at it on the highest settings without a hitch
Stays cool, idles at about 29C and I haven't seen it go over 70C, even during long gaming sessions
Came with a free copy of Watch Dogs
Cons: Thing's huge, but that's to be expected for higher-end GPUs
Other Thoughts: Love the card so far, it's handling every graphically intensive game I've got like a champ. All that extra video RAM lets it play Watch Dogs without a problem, while a lot of people have been having issues with stuttering in that game.
I've bought EVGA cards in the past and I've always been extremely happy with their customer support and commitment to quality components.
If your timing's good, chances are it'll come with a free game, which is a great value. I got Watch Dogs.
Pros: Superficially, looks really neat.
Lots of USB 3.0 ports
LED readout and codes make diagnosing problems super easy
Really user-friendly BIOS
Optimization settings are really robust
Cons: None that I've encountered. This version of the board doesn't have wifi, but I had no interest in connecting my desktop via wifi anyway.
Other Thoughts: I'm really happy with this board. Ran into a bit of a snag on the system build but the LED readout code pointed me right to the easy fix and now it's running flawlessly. Great board for a reasonable price.READ FULL REVIEW
