EVGA GeForce GTX 480 (Fermi) DirectX 11 015-P3-1480-KR 1536MB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: Very solid card. It performs well in all games and it does almost everything I could ask for. EVGA is, from my personal experience, a friendly and helpful company with above average products.

Cons: As others have mentioned this thing gets hot and uses a lot of power. What no one else seems to have mentioned is that this is not actually the best card at this price point. Currently there's an ATI card that performs equally to this card at the same price point at the time of writing this review. The other card uses considerably less power and stays drastically cooler.

Other Thoughts: When I bought this card the ATI card I'm referring to was much more than this card, but now they're the same price. Either way, I'm glad I bought an EVGA card, I've already sent this in for the step up program and I'm getting a GTX 660ti.

Thermaltake Silent 1156 CLP0552 92mm CPU Cooler For Intel Socket LGA1156

Pros: This thing is, as advertised, silent. I've had it for just over 2 years and it has never once made any audible noise. This is the only reason to buy this HSF.

Cons: Doesn't cool my system that well at all, it barely cools better than the stock hsf that came with my CPU.

Other Thoughts: I bought this particular HSF because at the time of purchase all the other compatible 1156 socket coolers (very few of them were available, the socket was just released) were out of stock. I've had favorable results with Thermaltake in the past and decided to give this HSF a whirl. It didn't have any reviews at the time, and now I wish I had waited and gotten the HSF I really wanted. I whole heartedly recommend the average person avoiding this HSF. Look around, there are a few high quality and cheap HSF's available around this price range.

Thermaltake Silent 1156 CLP0552 92mm CPU Cooler For Intel Socket LGA1156

Pros: Relatively cheap. Smaller than my last CPU cooler. Smaller than most good cpu coolers. In fact I have no idea where reviewers thinking this cooler was big came from, novice builders I guess?

Cons: Only 4 heat pipes produce sub par results. In this same price category there are better coolers.

Running my cpu at a meager OC (for a 750), going from 2.67 to 3.2 and my idle temps went from low to mid 30's to low 50's. There are competitively priced coolers that do a better job.

Other Thoughts: My good friend has an AC cooler with the exact same setup (Case CPU and Mobo) as myself he's got his OC'd to 3.6 and runs a few degrees cooler.
