Pros: This thing scoots. This chip can handle everything i throw at it and then some. It still keeps impressing me. Well worth the money if you have to have a chip that can do it all.
Cons: This thing can make some heat. Overclocked it can make a LOT of heat. Have a good cooler if you plan on twisting this chip anything farther than stock turbo speed of 4.4. Never tried to factory heat sink so i do not know if it is capable of cooling it or not. Lowing voltages as much as possible helps.
Other Thoughts: makes it to 4.9 - 5 with everything on auto. Past that it takes some tweaking but it makes enough heat that i can't push it much past that anyway. Best I've done with it was 5.3 and it was getting hot so dumped prime before i could see if it would be stable. Air cooling so far. Maybe someday when i have more money and time i'll make a custom water loop for it but for now this does more than enough at stock 4.0. Would get this chip again without a second thought.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I have had quite a few power supplies in my life. This one is by far the best I've used yet. Check the voltages and they are rock steady under any circumstances and it stays cool under pressure. The cables are nice and they have plenty of length to reach even if your power supply is mounted at bottom of the case. Lots of cables for whatever you could want to do. Very nice finish on the power supply case. The packaging is very nice as well. Comes with bags to store the power supply and the cables if for some reason you take it out.
Cons: None. it has been fantastic.
Other Thoughts: I have never bought anything from EVGA before but after doing some research decided to give them a chance in my new build. Glad i did.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast......Very fast...... Windows 8.1 loads in 20 seconds or better from full shut down. This thing is tiny. Not a whole lot bigger than a jump drive. Tuck it away nicely on the motherboard and amaze your friends with the speed. The numbers that they advertise aren't exaggerated. it will go that fast. Benchmarked drive at 735 mb/sec in my rig.
Cons: High price for such little space. Green?!?!?! didn't we get rid of that years ago??
Other Thoughts: Love this thing!!! The green is hidden by my graphics cards that cover it up nicely. Not sure why they stuck with green on a high end part like this but how much time do you really spend looking into your case drooling.READ FULL REVIEW
