Pros: Overclocks extremely well. Currently have it at 4812mhz with 1.421v on a Thermaltake 120mm watercooling system (50c maximum load temperature).
Rated 11,500 in Passmark's cpu benchmark test at 4812mhz on a Sabertooth 990FX r2.0 Asus board.
Plays current title games very well and multi-tasks like no other...
Cons: Isn't Intel. AMD chipsets are much slower than intel chipsets. Passmark's AMD overall scores are much lower than standard Intel setups.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan
Pros: Functions. High quality materials and stock fan is well rated and quiet.
Cons: Doesn't cool a Haswell very efficiently, especially if you plan to overclock.
Doesn't seat tight to an 1150 Intel socket - you can twist it around even when it's installed correctly.
Other Thoughts: I eventually scrapped it and replaced it with a simple consumer-grade Corsair H60.READ FULL REVIEW
