This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan
Pros: I just picked this up and installed it about an hour ago. so far im liking what im seeing. not a huge fan of OC'ing so i didnt see a massive difference in temp drops. Running my i5 3470 at stock speeds at 29 - 33c, before with the stock cooler it was around 35 to 37c. so much improved. under heavy load playing bf3 for about 20 mins the highest it got was around 42 to 46c compared to the 50 - 60c on the stock heatsink.
Cons: None to speak of yet
Other Thoughts: i5 3470 3.20ghz
MSI Z77 GD55 mobo
MSI Twinfrozr Gtx 660 OC
16gb ripjawsX 1600
Pros: I upgraded from a h55m-s2v micro atx with a i5 760 to this board and a i5 3470. The difference is night and day... If you're building a legit gaming pc somewhere in the price range of 700 - 900 then you really can't go wrong with this board. .. literally the best motherboard 150 can buy.
Cons: None to speak of yet.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: - Fast
- Great Price
Plays every game i have on high to ultra besides BF3 but im sure with a mobo/processor change gameplay would be smoother.
Cons: 192 bit memory interface
can only sli 2 cards.
None really though if your building a gaming pc on a budget of 800 dollars or cheaper.
Other Thoughts: Haven't ran any benchmarking test on it yet, but this is MUCH MUCH better then the 560gtx twinfrozrII i had previously.
