Pros: I bought this CPU for a buddy of mine and its one of the best processors I've ever seen in a computer I've build. It overclocks like a champ, no doubts about that, we had it at 5.1 stable on an h100 water for 3 weeks, never peaked over 62-65 C. I actually just bought a i7 3770k for myself just to get him to shut up about how great this CPU is. If your considering any other CPU, dont this is a great chip for $200.
Cons: It gets hot, even on the stock clock rates it gets super toasty, not a deal breaker, but be warned, if your going to push it over the turbo clock, you have to have a very decent cooler.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I'm a fan of cheap, useful, simple equipment, this case is perfect for what I like, simple MOBO installation, plenty of room for my expansion cards, and holds and Corsair h50 water cooler well enough for my tastes.
Cons: None that I can think ofREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: This little duel core has put out some power that I would have never expected to see, upgraded a budy of mine to a pc with this cpu, went from an old AMD Athlon x2 to this, and I'm impressed, Runs cool, Super Cool, and even for some "heavy" gaming this thing paired with a HD 5770, can run games like AION on max at 1600x900 with nothing lower than 45 FPS.
Cons: Disappointing that the price for this hasn't dropped all that much, but nothing to knock points off for.READ FULL REVIEW
