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.READ FULL REVIEW
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.READ FULL REVIEW
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.READ FULL REVIEW
