This review is from: ASRock Z77 Extreme3 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
excellent spacing for big card Sli set ups
Good vrm cooling
Ram overclockers well
Cons: My i7 3770k on an vanilla z77 gigabyte motherboard i could boot into windows at 5.3ghz at 1.45v
With this i can only achieve 4.8 at 1.4v
don't advertise and overclocking board if it does not overclock.
it took me 2 days to figure out how to disable the onboard GPU so I could get 4.8 gigahertz, with onboard graphics I was only able to manage 4.6 gigahertz at the same hi crazy voltage.
Other Thoughts: super duper unimpressed. I will now only buy gigabyte boards as they have almost never failed me this bad.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H60 (CW-9060007-WW/RF) Water Cooler Manufactured Recertified
Pros: Not only was this 35 bucks, but the surface finish on the cooling side is fantastic :-) it must be 1500 grit.
dropped my load temps On my gtx970 by 32 degrees Celsius. 72 to 40
Cons: the tubes are a little stiff, but less than you probably think. much easier to bend then Coolermaster Nepton 140 XL cooler.
Other Thoughts: The supplied hardware did not fit the GTX 970 GPU heatsink mounting holes. So I used Zip ties. I had to shave a 64th of an inch all the corners on the cold side for clearance for my ram sinks on my zoTac amp Omega edition.
this allowed me 20 more megahertz.1450 to 1466 mhz I have locked voltage control on an overclockers card :-(
