Pros: Great upgrade from an Nvidia 560...
Cons: Not the 280X
Other Thoughts: Should have paid more attention to the details. The 280X was just a few dollars more on another site. The X specs are better, but worth it? I dunno. Not going to complain still can play GTA5 in 1080 on high/ultra around 35+ FPS. Looks good to me.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: COOLER MASTER R4-S2S-124K-GP 120mm Silent Case Fan
Pros: Pretty quiet!
Cons: All fans at once is noticeable.
Other Thoughts: I would but them again for the price no problem! I installed all of them, but only use 3. Maybe its the way my case and components are arranged, but the 4th fan as a sucking in air fan is over kill, louder and not needed. All other fans are blowing out creating a negative pressure. Google negative/positive CPU case pressure and decide which is better for you.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan
Pros: Quiet and cool. Almost silent under CPU load.
Cons: LARGE, still fits my full size cooler master case, but it is close to the side not being able to closer properly. It still does, its just close.
Other Thoughts: Pretty skeptical at first... Last CPU had a stock fan and was pretty quiet. You could hear it when it was under load for a while, but not too bad. When I upgraded the CPU, the stock fan was fine until it got under load, then it was noticeably louder. I tried the old fan from the old CPU but it was consonantly under load. The CPU just ran hotter. With this large of fan my CPU runs nice and cool and when it gets under load and the fan speeds up, its still quiet.READ FULL REVIEW
