Pros: this is the best thing i have added to my system. it made the biggest differnece in system performance. I went from a stock AMD cooler, which are junk anyway - to this. I couldnt even think about OCing with the stock cooler. I ran at 45C Idle and 70C under load before adding this - and that was at stock speeds. I have a 960T. one adding this - my idle temp is 30C and 43-45C under HEAVY OVER CLOCKING AND LOADING. I was able to unlock my 960T to a X6 1600T by adding this cooling system. And it was less than 50! ONE this is by far the best thing i ever bought from new egg.
Cons: I was expecting it to be smaller. from the pictures I thought it was about 60mm, i missed the details. so with it being 120mm with 2 fans, it does need a pretty big area to live in. I was about to mount it to my side cover and side vent. to get and idea the radiator is about the size of a 3.5 inch hard drive, and so is each fan, so it will need the about of room 3 3.5hdd take up stack together. e.g. the same volume (in3) as 3 hdd.
Other Thoughts: if buy after market and like to tweek and OC then def go with water cooling!!! I have tried but cant get my cpu to hit 50CREAD FULL REVIEW

This review is from: ASUS M4A88T-I Deluxe AM3 AMD 880G USB 3.0 HDMI Mini ITX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Great flexibility. Has a lot of included utilities from ASUS. I love the turbo v utility makes it easy for noobs to OC.
Has everything, and every option and supports usb 3.0.
Love the core unlocker and turbo switch onboard.
I upgraded my emachine el1300-g HTPC with this. made me a nice little power house. I have it hooked to my 55" LCD 1080i LOVE IT!
Cons: Loots of options make it very easy to get confused about how to setup your machine. I have done a fresh install 3 times now (win7) to get my machine setup how I want it.
Also I tried to setup RAID 0 and Win 7 64 would not recognize any drivers and it was a b to get put back to normal IDE.
Other Thoughts: I really think this would be a kick but machine if I could get RAID to work. But it is still a very powerful HTPC otherwise.READ FULL REVIEW
