Pros: It plays most standard games well enough and has 2GB of ram replaced two 8800gts in sli on my wife's computer and is better. It is quiet. It has worked with no problems. Comes with OCing software. Fairly inexpensive.
Cons: no sli
Other Thoughts: you get what you pay for, but it is a "good enough" card that will not do any high performance games much justice.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Noctua NH-D14 120mm & 140mm SSO CPU Cooler
Pros: One of the best, and probably is the best, air cooler. I am overclocking a 3930k on a RIVE board to 4.3GHz and it keeps it at 26c idle and 58c on full load on all cores. I do have very good case airflow as well. Make sure you have the ciorrect mounting kit for a 2011. Or just buy the SE version instead. almost silent.
Cons: Big and Ugly. It will not fit with high profile ram on some boards and it has a long reach. close to the edge in my TJ07 full tower case, but it should fit snuggly in most cases. Brown fans are a bit ugly, but it is a trademark of noctua.
Other Thoughts: I have put aftermarket fans on it that are louder, but have dropped the temps another couple of Cs and fit with the color scheme.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: worked perfectly out of the box, came with plenty of cords and a nifty bag to carry the extras in. I have a 3930k on a RIVE motherboard, 32GB of ram with a GTX 570. Plenty of watts to spare.
Looks good in a windowed case.
Cons: cords felt a little stiff, but that is the only thing I can think of. It is a bit of a reach.
Other Thoughts: one of the most dependable psu's on the market.READ FULL REVIEW
