This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H90 High Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 140mm
Pros: Very easy to install and works great. My FX-8320 runs at 23C idle and at 75% CPU load it only gets up to about 30C. It's very quite and works great. I have found the Fan to be very quiet.
Cons: The instructions could be a more clear.
Other Thoughts: Check your case. I had to modify my case to fit the Radiator and Fan together. The instructions are not clear what to set your system for the pump and radiator fan. I put Fan and Pump on CPU FAN and CPU OPT headers. I'm very happy with this system.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: MSI 970A-G43 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Cheap motherboard. Good layout for the connectors.
Cons: The "Supported" FX-8320 CPU would not boot. It would not display video. Tech support's email told me to reset the BIOS.
Other Thoughts: I reset the bios numerous times before I contacted MSI tech support. Their forms only told me that this CPU had issue. I attempted to get it to boot with different video cards and had plenty of power. I got video after 10 BIOS and power resets. It would then ask for me to go in to the BIOS to setup. "Entering Setup.." was as far as I got. Forums were not help, and MSI telling me to rest the BIOS was worthless. I have Returned the Motherboard for an ASUS Sabertooth.READ FULL REVIEW

Cons: The 4pin CPU cable is a bit short for cable management cases.
Other Thoughts: I wanted 90 degree rotation on the Sata Connectors for my Hard drives.READ FULL REVIEW
