Pros: 1) PCI-E 3.0
2) Memory Controller @ 1866mhz
3) Lower power consumption
4) Over Clocks like a beast compared to my 3930k
5) Final Socket in the 2011 E Family and will not see a rival cpu for quite some time now.
The fact is this is what sandy bridge-e was meant to be but was developed just a little too early. We now have a true six-core cpu and not a re branded xeon with all the proper support on it. I say sell your also 3930k/3960x and then buy yourself the Ivy Bridge-E and call it a day.
Cons: None, nothing but benefits from this cpu and with proper cooling will over clock like a beast. If your not prepared to buy or don't already have water cooling then this chip is not for you. The fact is to get the performance you want from massive overclocking then its necessary. What i hate more then anything is some tool trying to overclock on air and then trashing it because it wont. This chip hits 5ghz @ 1.43 volts easy on water cooling and proper mobo and stable all day long.
Other Thoughts: Now this is for the poster who came here to bash the chip like a tool because lets be honest your not very smart. Now for starters anyone with 1/2 a clue would sell his 3930k and then upgrade and not just set it to the side. The fact is i don't think you own this chip and simply want to bash intel because you cant afford it. When it comes to reviews you need to give a proper pro or con advise to people and not be a troll. So others please ignore his ignorance as his review serves no purpose what so ever.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: When i first recieved this fan due to its size i had concerns about the possible noise that could be created but those concerns were put to rest quickly. When i plugged this fan in i was very surprised at not only how quiet the fan was but the amount of air flow it created. When i placed this in my case in a push/pull configuration with my other fans i noticed a nice drop in temperature inside my case overall by several degrees. I own a full tower case that allows several fans of this size and will be replacing my current fans with more of these. I got more air flow and less sound from this fan then from fans of the same size in my case and to me that's worth is weight in gold. I would recommend this fan to anyone who has a case that allows fans of this size and tell you that you will not be dissapointed in the least with its performance,cooling and airflow.
Cons: I haven't noticed any real cons with this fan, its a great fan and really gets the job done.
Other Thoughts: I would love to see a led version of this fan for people like me who have a clear sided case and also a fully clear case for display. If you could combine this great fan with an even greater look then you would have a fan that i would label as a game changer in overall temps and airflow.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Ok im writeing this review in hopes to maybe help a few people in the process. I bought 2 of these right here for my eyefinity build, all built right here at the egg. When i had my system first up and running i got a few crashes in games. Well after a little googling and help from folks @ the amd forums and i was all fixed up. I downloaded and installed msi after burner and created a fan profile depending on the temps and problem fixed. Since then i game for 8 hours straight @ a max resolution of 5670x1080 eyefinity mode and no crashes at all.
I also want to mention that the 10.3 beta drivers are out and they fix the bezal issues and xfire mode in eyefinity. I gained 40+ fps in over all games with these drivers @ massive resolutions because of this fix. Im not saying this will fix everyones issue but it fixed me and many others right up, msi afterburner for the wi. I wont deny these cards are a little ahead of its time but if you want the very best on the market, it comes with a pri
Cons: I just want to say my cards are real beast and maybe im one of the lucky ones but i have never had a 2d issue or a gaming issue after i started useing afterburner. im an old school nvidia fan boy and guess what, now im just a fan of who makes the best and its ati at the moment and for less then a nvidia price tag. I love my cards and they are getting the job done without any issue and powers eyefinity completely. If you want to see my rig just to show you what im talking about, drop by the amd processor forums and check it out under moddings, im xBlade.
Other Thoughts: i just want to let people know if your building a system for eyefinity high end gaming and want to run your games at full on high and 8xAA and 16xAF on a single card, think again. If you want to do that at max resolution not 1, not 2 but 3 will be reqiured i asure you of that. If i run my games past 4x and 4x i drop below 5-10 fps and cripples the machine with 2 of these bad boys. If you want to be on the brink of insanity of gaming and run eyefinity like a mad man, be ready to drop the bank and its well worth it.
I just want to say thanks again to newegg for great parts, this is my third build in 6 years and not one rma or doa part to date. every single part ive got was great and is still currently in use in a computer through out my house. I guess im just lucky but i love you newegg you gusy rock as always and cant wait until my next build to by more from yea.
