Pros: Read about your motherboard clock speeds. They are usually set low- 1333 by default. these are awesome looking on the MB Asrock 990FX Ext4. Set them up std for break in time. After 3 days set up to run at 1866 and bumped the CPU to ~4100. Windows Experience went up .3 to 7.9. Could go more, but will let that run for a while. Temps at 37C on MB and 43C CPU 1.65V DRAM
Other Thoughts: You guys buying 32GB..you must be doing heavy video editing or something...even heavily played games on Ultra do not need more than 3-4gb...Your video card does more work so up that first if that is a concern. Check your HD- get a fast SSD. Samsung 840 Pro 256 good one.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Noctua NT-H1 Thermal Compound
Pros: Used many thermal pastes in the past. read reviews on this in many places. Worked great. Temps are below 43C and while gaming on medium settings went up to 50C. You will like it. Doesn't take much - reusable screw on cap.
Cons: None yetREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast response. Easy to setup. No problems with it or anything.
Recognized on MB. temps are stable and low with the stock heat sink and fan only. Wanted to try it first before buying something.
Other Thoughts: Price came down last week and took it. Otherwise get the higher processor for same money.READ FULL REVIEW
