Enermax ETS-T40-TB CPU Cooler With T.B.SILENCE PWM Twister Bearing Fan Compatible with latest Intel 2011/1150 and AMD FM2/FM1/AM3+
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: AMD Kaveri temps with stock cooler.. High 50's to low 70's under load.
AMD Kaveri temps with THIS cooler... Low 30's to low 40's under load..
This is all you need to know.

Cons: It's one of the biggest processor heatsink/fans I've ever seen. It's so big, I have to dry dock my PC until next payday, at which point I will have to buy a new case. So, like I said.. THIS THING IS HUGE... But, that's what she said.

Other Thoughts: If you look at the instructions and they are written in a language you don't understand, flip the paper over and read the back until you find one you do understand. If you still don't understand, look at the pictures. If you can't read or see, get someone to help you. This thing really isn't that bad to install. Furthermore, once you actually have it done, I bet you will appreciate some of the engineering quality time that was put in to developing this device. I know I did. But once again........ That's what she said.

SAPPHIRE Ultimate  Radeon HD 6670 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready  Video Card (100326UL)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I Used this thing in my old computer and gave it away with that computer to my teenage son..
I took the build apart and had him put it together so he could start building machines of his own.. (without potentially costing me alot of money..)
He plays all of his steam games with it now.. Counter Strike, DayZ, and others and he gets good frame rates and decent settings medium range paired with an old Core2 Q6600 and 4 GB of DDR2 running at 800MHZ.. This thing still runs and is still quite relevant.. Very good buy.

Cons: None whatsoever.

Other Thoughts: I bought this originally to replace an old Radeon 4870 that died..
That 4870 was LOUD LOUD LOUD..
So the fanless design was a big draw for me after spending about 3 years listening to jet engines when I game..
Also wanted to mention that I got Planetside 2 to run at good frame rates on high settings.. Can't say enough good things about this one.

G.SKILL Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-17000CL11D-8GBSR
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Cheap..
Does what RAM does.
worked fine right out of the box.
Runs at 1600 unless you mess around in the BIOS..
matched with a Kaveri and it runs awesome at 1866.

Cons: I haven't figured out how to get it stable at 2133 yet. Gskill doesn't seem to provide allot of support on their website regarding this. I haven't been at my mobo manufacturer yet. I didn't take an egg off for this because I'm sure it will run.. It's just not working yet because I'm dumb.
I thought it would be something as simple as selecting a different profile in the BIOS for the memory settings.. There's one in there, but it doesn't work.. The thing works all choppy and weird unless I turn it back down.. So, I think I might have to mess with the timings or the voltage.. Or overclock the processor, which really isn't something I'm wanting to do..
