Pros: -very quick before overclock
-was able to overclock without massive voltage tweaks (4.4Ghz stable)
-cooler than i expected on corsair h60 push-pull
-got it for $270 on sale
-huge upgrade from my i5-750
Cons: -conventional stress testing doesn't necessarily indicate gaming stability
-overclocking headroom isn't massive with small closed loop cooler
Other Thoughts: -Out of the box on my Intel z8klt-75k motherboard with 8GB of gskill Ares ram, it was nearly 10Gflops faster than my i5-750 OC'ed to 3.8Ghz.
-As a drawback of my motherboard, i had to overclock by manipulating the turbo multiplier of my board, which means the speeds are only achieved at or near max load. System is stable at 4.4Ghz turbo, though, and hitting 65Gflops max in LinX at max problem size. -Temperatures during a 12 hour burn in were around 72C with one core hitting 74C.
-After stress and stability testing, during some gaming i had 2-3 blue screens, and had to bump the vCore to stabilize, max temperatures rose an average of 1C per core.
-I wouldn't feel comfortable trying to get 4.5-4.6Ghz out of this chip on the cooler i'm currently running.
-Overall, the processor has met expectations, especially for the sale price that i payed.
Pros: matches my DZ87KLT-75K
didn't catch fire
Couldn't use it long enough to find any others
Cons: one memory module failed at stock speeds and voltage after 20 runs of LinX and 15 minutes of prime 95 large FFT's
Other Thoughts: the ram was in my pc for less than 4 hours before my pc hard locked during prime95 and gave me memory error codes on reboot.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: AERIAL7 Tank Eclipse 3.5mm/ 6.3mm Connector Over-Ear DJ Headphone
Pros: Open Back - good for listening to music; more comfortable than my Sennheiser HD280s.
Good detail and frequency range
Better bass response than my HD280s.
Cons: Don't trust the high end and midrange response for mixing.
More comfortable than HD280s isn't much of an accomplishment - wish they had terry cloth or velour ear pads.
Other Thoughts: Great headphones for $40. Wouldn't use them in a professional setting. Would be a little apprehensive about paying $100 on them.READ FULL REVIEW
