This review is from: MSI 790XT-G45 AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 790X ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Unlocks cores, overclocks well, crossfire ready, ddr2 ram (so you don't have to shell out for ddr3), AM3 ready, plenty of USB ports and headers.
Cons: no cmos reset button for an overclocking board. Won't unlock a AM2+ Kuma cpu. BIOS needs to be updated to unlock anything. Doesn't have SPDIF on board. Won't clean it self.???
Other Thoughts: Great board, the AM3 version is just as good and almost twice as fast with ddr3. Open design and I love the 90 degree sata ports. was a good deal for me, all my parts fit from my last computer that I upgraded this to.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H50 Quiet Edition Water / Liquid CPU Cooler. 120mm
Pros: This thing installed very easily after watching the instructional video online before purchasing. Rig runs at 17C in an air conditioned environment, 30C in 90 F environment. Silent, no maintenance, essentially set it and forget it. Cost as much as a high end air cooler.
Cons: Installation can be tricky if you try to put it together without looking at the manual, so RTM!!!! Also you case NEEDS a 120mm case fan mount in either the back or top.
Other Thoughts: If you have the case and want to get to overclocking your cpu this is a no brainer. If you want something to protect your investment when gaming and not have to think twice about overheating and slowdown, this is your ticket.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS Silent Knight II 92mm Sleeve CPU Cooler
Pros: Clean and shiny, moves air without all the noise. Cool blue LED and works wonders on heat.
Cons: Can be a bit intimidating when you first open the box.
Other Thoughts: It comes with brackets for both amd2+ and 775 cpus. just follow the directions and in 15 min. You'll have it up and running in no time, both require a back plate so be prepared to move that mobo around.READ FULL REVIEW
