Intel Core i7-3970X Extreme Edition Sandy Bridge-E 6-Core 3.5GHz (4.0GHz Turbo) LGA 2011 150W BX80619i73970X Desktop Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I won't repeat what everyone else has listed as a pro for this processor. Let's just say that they are correct for the most part.

Be prepared for some serious cooling for this. 150w processors tend to get hot :D

I use a Corsair H100i and it keeps it at 32C idle and about 54C full-load (78 degree ambient - very good airflow).

You will not find a faster x86/x64 processor on a single-socket package.

Cons: The price, but that's what you pay for enthusiast-grade, bleeding-edge technology.

Intel 520 Series Cherryville 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Everything is a pro with one or two of these (or even more if you have RAID-capable ports to spare)! I am running two in a RAID0 and am getting 1GB/sec random reads/writes via AIDA64.

Cons: Cons? For $265 and the best random access times in the business, plus 1GB/sec sustained transfer rates... you won't see me complaining quite yet : )

Other Thoughts: Why buy one when you can buy two for double the price!

Either way, you won't regret the purchase.

CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm

4 out of 5 eggs Does it's job. Great alternative to air cooling 08/21/2013

This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm

Pros: Cools a tad better than air.
Not terribly loud.
Installs relatively easy.
Price is definitely in range with expectations.

Cons: Don't expect it to perform like a custom loop system.
The CorsairLink2 software is buggy at times.
LED on the pump will change colors after a system power cycle.
Supplied screws hit the radiator fins when installed the included fans.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a high-end air cooler and have real-estate inside your case, you should consider the H100i instead.
