Pros: Fast and has a large capacity for a good price
Cons: It seems quite a bit noisier than my previous hard drive. If that sort of things bothers you, I'd suggest getting a noise-dampening case like I did. It'll save your sanity.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cooler Master GeminII S524 - CPU Cooler with Aluminum Fins and 5 Heatpipes
Pros: It's pretty quiet and keeps the CPU nice and cool.
Cons: Maybe it's just me but the installation instructions were quite confusing. I ended up needing to watch a YouTube video of a guy walking through the installation before it made sense. That's the only issue I had with it though.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast and great for both multitasking and gaming. I can run multiple games, browsers, Photoshop, and other programs all at once without the performance of each being noticeably impacted. It's also a great price.
Other Thoughts: I didn't go with the stock heatsink on the advice of a friend and I also have 3 case fans and plenty of ventilation so the CPU runs pretty cool. It's at about 30C right now and the highest I've seen it go so far is about 50C. I'd definitely recommend spending the extra $30-40 for a third-party heatsink, it's worth it.READ FULL REVIEW
