Intel Core i7-930 Bloomfield Quad-Core 2.8 GHz LGA 1366 130W BX80601930 Desktop Processor

Pros: Great chip.
Sweet overclocker.
Lots of features.
Yay hyperthreading.

Cons: Stock fan is a stock paper weight in disguise.

Other Thoughts: Throwing the stock fan in my computer junk box I slapped my 'Noctua NH-U9B SE2 92mm SSO CPU Cooler' on this beat and cranked it out to 3.6Ghz and have left it there since. (On default voltage.) I'm certain I could go higher, I've just no need for that right now as this thing and my 5850 help me crush lots of games at 1920x1080. Keep up the good work, Intel. (Never thought I'd say that. First 4 computers were AMD.)

Western Digital WD Green WD8000AARS 800GB 5400 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: Well, I bought 3 of these suckers. Apparently, I'm illiterate and didn't read that they're 5400RPM. (Wow, how the hell did I miss that?) They were used on my, my friend's and my friend's girlfriend's computers. My friend's HD from day one was stuttering noticeably in anything that taxed it. (Games and what have you.) He replaced the HD with a Seagate and as we expected...all good to go. Every sort of maintenance was done on that drive. (Disk defrag and the rest.) A poor HD. A week later his g/f's drive crashes the computer 3 times in one week. We know it was the HD, because he went out and bought her the same new one he has. No more problems. MY HD is used for storage on movies, music and the like. I've had no problems. *knock on wood*

Other Thoughts: I guess 1 out of 3 ain't bad?

I blame myself, though. I knew these were supposed to be gaming drives. I missed the low RPMs and wanted to purchase 7200RPM. (Caviar Black they're called I see now.)

Take my experiences as you will.

5 out of 5 eggs Great HS/F. 09/17/2010

This review is from: Noctua NH-U9B SE2 92mm SSO CPU Cooler

Pros: -Easy to install. (On a fresh build.)
-Temps are cool when my i7 930 is maxed at 3.6 (I'm sure I could get it higher, but just don't care to.)
-Would buy again.

Cons: I had little to no problem installing this thing. Read the instructions, follow them. Go to go. (Make sure you have some Arctic Silver 5 [or such] on your CPU before you seat it. =p)

Other Thoughts: Would buy again in a heartbeat.
