Pros: This is an additional review to my 1st one, which I though it was very positive.
Works excellently and very stable with a Thermaltake water cooler.
at 4.7 GHz with turbo off and multiplier set at 23.5X.
Cons: Though my 1st review was very favorable with an air cooler, (a Coolermaster 212 Evo, with 2x 120 mm fans)... at times, and on multimedia especially, CPU overheated and caused freezes and reboots.
it is probably ideally designed to work with a water cooler.
Does not work too stable at 5 GHZ even with water cooler.
Other Thoughts: Happy with my purchase, but I had to buy a water cooler to have it runnin gstable. I understand from reviews, that the OEM water cooler this CPU comes with, it's not the best choice.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Speed, price, runs cool (at low temp) with air cooler, effortless, does not overheat. a real beast!!!
Cons: None so far. Just popped it in. Aplied arctic silver and attached existing cooler. It came CPU only in a very small pack not bigger than a cigarettes box... never saw an AMD CPU delivered like this. But it works fine, unbelievable for this power, with air cooler and no problems at all. I checked no pins were bent and all went fine.
Other Thoughts: I have no words... works cool... no warmer than my former FX-8350. Effortlessly. with a cooler master HD-212 cooler, having one 120 mm fan. I am not overclocking yet... idles around 24-34 C... unbelievable!
I love this monster!!!
This review is from: BYTECC Bracket-35225 2.5" HDD/SSD Mounting Kit For 3.5" Drive Bay or Enclosure
Pros: Very nice design, comes with all hardware and screws. Installs in a few mins. Ample 2 bay capacity. Very functional in my view.
Cons: it's plastic but it doesn't matter.
Other Thoughts: I would buy more of those. Its a must for anyone using a Dektop with a SSD lacking an adapter. And the current adapters coming with the SSD's are highly incompatible with my Antec P180 modular HDD bays. This works like a charm!READ FULL REVIEW
