Pros: This CPU allows for extreme overclocking, at a great price. I purchased this in 2010, and is still kicking strong.
Cons: Power Hungry. Isn't a great value for today's CPUs.
Other Thoughts: Great CPU, very impressive. For a purchase of today I would recommend an Intel 22nm Tech CPU.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I bought this Palit in 2010, and it's still running. Nvidia did their job here, I don't think Palit did so well.
Cons: Runs hot, Runs loud. One year after purchase, this card got me over 108 degrees in Furmark. I had to disassemble the plastic case, that was hard. Then disassemble the fans, and the heatsinks. I re-oiled the fans, and applied Arctic Silver 5 to the heatsinks. It then only got to 96 degrees in Furmark. I looked around at other 465 fermi furmark scores, and none got to that temperature, no where near.
Other Thoughts: I wouldn't be purchasing a Palit again. I was only able to save this card through my understanding of these types of things. Many customers would have a dead card.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9700 LED 110mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler
Pros: This heat-sink is designed intelligently. Copper is a step up from aluminum in thermal conductivity, which is good. The only way to beat this piece is by making it out of silver. The copper piping leads up to the extravagantly proportioned fins to transfer heat efficiently. The fan then blows the heat off of the fins almost inaudibly. I used it on the X4 965 and am going to see how this works with my new 3570. Would recommend to anyone that wants to overclock their rig.
Cons: I Cut myself. I Cut myself a lot. Be extremely careful when installing this heat sink. It's a difficult go... but sometimes what's best for your machine isn't the best for your delicate fingers.
Other Thoughts: A+. Owned since 2010.READ FULL REVIEW
