Pros: Drop my CPU temp by 4 Celsius at idle and 2 Celsius at full load.
This power supply is ultra quite.
I bought this power supply for upcoming ATI/AMD Cayman GPU Radeon 6900 series.
80+ silver or Gold edition power supply I recommended for best experience's running high-end video cards.
Cons: The attachable cables to video cards, hard drives, DVD drives is too long for my Antec 900 case. (I had to hide them inside the case because of the length)
This power supply is Made in China
Other Thoughts: 7 years warranty is very impressive!
High quality capacitors (Made in Japan) inside this Power Supply!
This review is from: G.SKILL FTB-3500C6-S Fans
Pros: Very easy to install (took less then 10 seconds)
Plug right into motherboard 3 pin connector, was able to control fan speed through BIOS. (Low fan noise) Set in BIOS 60% percent for optimal performance.
Run PRIME95 for two hours and memory was very, very cool.
Running without this cooler - using PRIME95, memory was a bit HOT. (I notice huge temp drop with this cooler)
Memory that I have:
DDR2-1066MHz 5-5-5-15 at 2.1 volts
Running on my system 4x2GB = 8GB total memory RAM.
Patriot Viper 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model PVS24G8500ELKR2
Cons: It is a bit bulky - meaning if you have large custom CPU fan-cooler it might interfere; for me their was no problem since I use basic water-cooling solution Corsair H50 solution.
It is really not con, it also depends on the what type of motherboard you have, meaning how close memory is to CPU.
Other Thoughts: It looks very nice in your case with blue-led light :)READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Best CPU for Socket 775.
I was able to overclock @ 3.6GHz w/ Stock voltage. All I had to do is to change FSB from 333x9 to 400x9. That is it!! :) :)
But to be on the safe side I'm using Zalman CNPS9700 LED CPU Cooler.
When I go to BIOS (CMOS) It runs default @ 47C degrees.
But when I boot to Windows!
(Central Processing Unit) temperature drops:
Because under in windows mode CPU AUTO downclocks to 2.4GHz under idle (Standby)
When you run a test such as CINEBENCHR10, then CPU runs full speed - running @ 3.6GHz and temp goes up in (Celsius).
Running @ 3.6GHz and testing CINEBENCHR10 64bit mode - my score was ~16,040 points, but under 32bit mode then score is ~14,140 points.
Intel Q9650 @ 3.6GHz is little faster then stock Intel Core i7 920 CPU @ 2.66GHz running CINEBENCHR10. I 'am comparing 4 threads vs. 8 threads in CINEBENCHR10 results.
Other Thoughts: My Motherboard is: ASUS P5K-Deluxe (P35)
My memory is: (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model PVS24G8500ELKR2.
