Pros: - Price for performance (When I first laid eyes on this card, it was $250. Fast forward a few months and suddenly it's $180)
- Excellent cooling setup. This card doesn't even break into the 60s if it runs at near max fan speed.
Cons: - BIG. Fourtunately my case is an Antec 1100, so I didn't have to worry about anything. But man, the card was so big that I had to handle it with both hands out of fear that I'd drop it with just one!
- Not much room for OC'ing. I was only able to push it up 50 mhz core AND memory clock. Any further and my PC would crash in-game. This is the main reason I knocked an egg off.
8gb cache gives my most used programs an extra kick in loading speed
Surprisingly thin for a desktop HDD
Cons: Slightly pricey (then again, I was comparing this to WD and Seagate 1TB drives that were under $70)
Obviously not as fast as an SSD, but I was aware of this prior to ordering
This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper TX3 - CPU Cooler with 3 Direct Contact Heatpipes
Pros: -Does what it needs to do
-Ability to add a second fan for a dual-fan setup
-Extremely quiet and pushes a great amount of air
Cons: -Intel push pin securing was abysmal and they broke on me instantly, but I ended up securing it with screws/washers (oddly enough, that works better)
-Mounting brackets for second fan is fragile. I removed the heatsink for a simple cleaning and the screwholes on the bracket cracked, resulting in broken mounts. I never overtighten screws and going back to a single fan setup was disappointing.
Other Thoughts: A very good alternative to the Hyper 212 model, but be careful if you try to go to a dual-fan configuration.READ FULL REVIEW
