Pros: Around 60+fps on every game at max i've tried except crysis(35-50fps).
Cons: Not really a con but this was my first build so i had to figure out that the screen tearing i got when i moved really fast in games was because of the vsync settings. Adaptive vsync is the best for any other new guys out there. Vsync off gives highest fps but depending on the monitor you'll get screen tearing.
Other Thoughts: BF3 60+ fpsREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works great and is fast 7.6/7.9 on windows experience index.
The processor in my 4-5 year old laptop was like 3.2/5.9.
Cons: Not really a con but these cpus run hotter than most but they are also rated to go withstand higher temps. The max is 105C. I think older cpus are 95C or 90C.
Other Thoughts: I haven't overclocked it yet because this is my first computer so i wanted to make sure everything else works fine in case something goes wrong when i overclock so i can see if its because i overclocked or something else. Also its really hot where i am right now 80-95 degrees these last few months so im going to wait until fall to overclock. Im sure it won't make a big difference but just to be safe, besides i don't really need the extra speed right now. I have gtx 670 so i get around 60fps+ on all the games i play(except crysis) so no need. But my temps are 30-40C with the Noctua-d14 cooler. Its usually 35C, one time they were 50-60C idk why cause i wasn't doing anything different. But based on everyone's review i have decent one of these cpus. Except for that guy who gets same temps as me but overclocked 0_0.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Seems reliable (3 months of use so far)
Good amount of space for an ssd
Cons: Have to change where some things download and install if you want to save space.
Other Thoughts: Works great, i have windows 7,firefox,itunes (songs in different drive),Pinnacle studio 15, and other things that windows 7 installs automatically on it and i have about 58gb out of 111 remaining. I limit the updates tho because they take up space and rarely do anything to help. The updates so far have taken up 5-6gb. Speed is great i haven't measured the speed on the drive but the programs on it open pretty fast. From when i click the power button to the windows screen to the desktop is 30 secs and i can use it right away without anything having to load.READ FULL REVIEW
