This review is from: Vigor Monsoon III LT Dual 120mm Fan CPU Cooler Socket 1366 Ready
Pros: This thing keeps it cool. The dual 120mm fans are quiet and effective. Installation was fairly standard on my Gigabyte UD4P LGA 1366 board. The blue LEDs match my Antec 900 case. Running an i7 920 @ 3.2ghz on stock voltages. Idle temp is approximately 30C and full-load temp is 53C. Very satisfied.
Cons: Big. I had to remove the plastic bracket for the side fan in my Antec 900 in order to close the case. If you have 6 sticks of RAM, you will want to install the memory in the slot closest to the cpu prior to installation of the cooler, as you may have difficulties getting it in afterwards.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Best-in-class consumer HDD.
Cons: None so far.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: No problems so far. I haven't pushed this RAM above 1333 yet, but plan to. I've read forum posts of people who have pushed this RAM to 1600 with ease, and I plan to test that myself. Great price:performance ratio.
Cons: Loose timings. Not a big deal, but if you're OC'ing, tight timings make for an easier time of it.
Other Thoughts: Great RAM for gameing rigs. Memory overclocking is overrated as it adds little to performance in most activities. This product can apparently be modestly OC'd without issues, and for the price it is a great deal.READ FULL REVIEW
