Pros: It runs what i want it to run, I do a lot of gaming but the most demanding game i play is battlefield 3 and very surprisingly im able to run multiplayer on ultra without AA so i guess for the price its a decent card(P.S. im playing on 1440X900 resolution so of course this card would handle at least that). Also the drivers were incredibly easy to install, thats always a pro.
Cons: There was only one major issue that i have with this card...the temps. i know i dont have the best air flow in my case or in my house, but even with installing extra fans this card goes past 70C.
Other Thoughts: I didnt buy the card through newegg i bought it in store. i really wish i would have had just a bit more money to get the 7850 instead but hey i was in a tight budget so i will make do with this.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Its worked wonderfully, my I3-3220 was heating up pretty bad it was idling around 47 degrees celcius and this CPU cooler brought it down to around 30 degrees celcius on idle a BIG improvement especially now that its a very hot summer. Also i just love the way it looks
Cons: Some ram stick with tall heat spreaders wont fit if this cooler is installed facing over the ram slots luckily that wasn't a problem with my setup. also the pins are plastic they didn't seem flimsy but still its plastic so just be careful with the installation and all should be good
Other Thoughts: Didn't buy from newegg sadly i was at an electronics store and just happened to find it, I bought it on a whim thinking it would just be a slight improvement over stock coolers but i was caught by surprise a full 15 to 17 degrees celcius drop is amazing. If you decide to buy great just once again be careful installing the plastic pinsREAD FULL REVIEW
