Pros: runs very cool, overclocks to over 1.2ghz easy. Fastest single gpu around period and seems it will stay that way for a good time
Cons: Not as fast at GTX 690 or CF 7970's
Other Thoughts: I am upgrading from first quadfire hd5970's, then quad sli gtx590's; both watercooled and trust me, sli and crossfire are nowhere I want to visit again anytime soon... both were riddled with problems. I decided to go with my previous top choice; the most powerful single gpu available at the time.. U get max relevant time and no crossfire or SLi issues and trust me.. there are plenty of those.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: - FASTEST cpu on the market
- Overclocks well
- Runs VERY cool
- Fully Unlocked
Cons: Price is high, but you pay for the best...
Other Thoughts: I got this cpu to replace my i7 920 @4.15ghz with 2x GTX590 gpu's that were being bottlenecked by my CPU.. frames went up 40-60fps in games such as battlefield bad company 2. Temps on my i7 920 were 70-73c IN GAME while WATERCOOLED and 48-49 idle. This 990x idles in the mid 30's at the same voltage as my OC'd i7 920 (1.375v) and load is mid 50c!. Got it pretty easily to overclock to 4.51ghz core and 3200mhz uncore @ 1.375v (max intel recommended spec for 32nm). This is intel's last cpu maxing out socket 1366 to its best. AMAZING processor!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Runs everything maxed at 1920x1080. you CAN overvolt without using older drivers. runs cool and obviously quiet. Lots of accessories.

Cons: a bit of a pain to overvolt. Does not like to be overclocked. Only game it dips below 60fps pretty constantly is Crysis 1 (seems like poor driver support right now for this game)
Other Thoughts: If you want to overvolt these things, you have to make a bootable USB Thumb drive, then put NVflash and the overvolted BIOS on it and flash the cards to the desired voltage.READ FULL REVIEW
