Cons: Unable to run stable at factory defaults. I tried EVERYTHING in BIOS settings - bump up voltage, disable C1E/C6 states, spread spectrum tweaking. Was able to get it to run kind of stable - but it locks up every now and then still.
Other Thoughts: I bought this for my friend, and it doesn't work. Such a shame. Can't even RMA it from AMD since OEM CPUs are not under warranty. Do not buy this CPU. I will be getting a new mobo and Intel CPU for my friend's PC, and my own PC upgrades in the future will be all Intel. I was a loyal AMD customer for many years, but no more.
FYI, the setup:
CORSAIR H100i watercooling setup
ASRock 990FX Extreme9 motherboard
CORSAIR DOMINATOR 16GB DDR3 1866 RAM
CORSAIR HXi HX850i 850W PSU
This review is from: CORSAIR CMXAF1 Fans
Pros: Fits in small place, keeps RAM cool
Cons: Noise started almost immediately after installation - just one fan, the other two are okay. Few weeks later the noise from that one fan has become even worse.
Other Thoughts: Don't buy these - go with someone else.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very fast when working. I did not experience BSODs or system freezes at all.
Cons: After using the drive for about 3 months with no problems, I went on vacation for a week, with my PC off, and when I came back and booted up my PC, the drive wasn't detected. I tried everything - different SATA port, different cables, even another PC. No luck.
Other Thoughts: I have started the warranty RMA process with OCZ, but you have to pay the shipping cost yourself - another bummer. I'll redo this review with a new rating depending on my experience dealing with OCZ.READ FULL REVIEW
