ARCTIC Accelero Xtreme 7970 VGA Cooler - nVidia & AMD, 3 Quiet 92mm PWM Fans, CrossFire
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Very quit, lowered my 7950 idle temps by about 10 degrees C, and lowered the 100% load temps by ~15.

Cons: This thing is an absolute NIGHTMARE to install. With almost no directions you have to figure out almost everything by yourself.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you're ready to invest 1-2 hours to install this monster.

5 out of 5 eggs Smooth as silk 02/24/2014

This review is from: XTRAC PADS Ripper Optical Mouse pad

Pros: Super smooth with a grip like nothing else.

Cons: None that I can see within 1 hour of using it.

Other Thoughts: The box it came in was about 10 times larger than it needed to be, not a complaint but it did surprise me a bit.

AMD FX-8350 Black Edition Vishera 8-Core 4.0GHz (4.2GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Desktop Processor FD8350FRHKBOX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Very cheap for the amount of power this thing puts out; 4.0 GHz right out of the box is pretty nice. It seems to run at a lower temp. than the FX-6100 it replaced.

Cons: After booting Windows for the first 2 times after installation, it locked up after ~45 minutes. It probably had nothing to do with the CPU, but I could be wrong. I kept it off for an hour or so after the second lock-up; no problems since then.

Other Thoughts: I have yet to overclock this beast as I don't need to at the moment; so I can't attest to how well it runs temp. and stability wise, but I really doubt it has any flaws. I didn't use the heatsink that came with it, but it seems to be built quite well.
