This review is from: ENERMAX TB SILENCE UCTB8 80mm Case Fan
Pros: Silent. Moves adequate air for necessary cooling.
Cons: Only 3 pin power, no pwm, but not knocking star because most 80mm don't have pwm.
Other Thoughts: Great fan if you want silent and effective cooling in 80mm configuration. I have used Enermax fans for years, and they always perform as designed. Out of half a dozen fans I have yet to have a single failure. Sure there are fans that move more air, but for silence you need to compromise cooling for decibels, this is a good compromise.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great Performance. Black Edition means Unlocked Multiplier = Overclocks easy as Pie. Sweetspot of core count; not too many/few. Runs cool under OC (with aftermarket cooling soljtions). Great Price/Value. Keeps AMD in game and Intel from Monopoly.
Cons: I am thinking..... will get back to you...
Ok just one. The CPU heatsink/fan (for all but basic use) is like making a Marriage proposal to Kate Upton with a Diamond ring from Walmart. Totally inadequate and unreasonable for such a serious and quality proposal. AMD has recognized and adressed it with the "Wraith" editions but just get a quality cooler so its cool and the noise doesn't nag and grate at you like an ex wife 2 days before her check is due.
Other Thoughts: Got mine on sale under a hun dineros. How do you beat that? Yes intel offers flashier and better performers just like the hotties you might go date before marrying they are high maintenance requiring newer mobos/sockets/more expensive memory. They cost more and demand more with less loyalty. (i.e. changing sockets with every release etc.) yeah the top end perf. is nice but at what cost? AMD is like the woman you want to marry and bear your children for you. Dependable. Sensible. Thrifty. Cleans up good for entertaining or night out on the town wearing Eddie Bauer not Dolce'. Everything you want, nothing you don't. You can have it all WITH a paid in full Newegg Account.

This review is from: MSI 970A-G43 Plus AM3+/AM3 AMD 970 & SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Easy set up. Great feature set. Durable Caps and Military Grade components. Love the color combo. My two sticks of Corsair Vengence in blue and two in black match the board so well, They are so purdy in there. UEFI bios. OC Genie is nice feature, it's a bit mild on the overclock but easy application.
Cons: Onboard sound not throwing out full spectrum, especially voices with DVD movies. Not sure if defect or user error, will keep working on it to try and resolve. No esata but just got a 3.0 USB dock/cloning station so not a big deal.
Other Thoughts: I recommend. Easy set up. Great performance. Less than 60 bucks means superb value.READ FULL REVIEW
