Pros: this cpu is AMAZING. owned for 15 months this girl never quits. it runs empire total war like swiss cheese. i got it with some 1333mhz ram (i need an upgrade on mobo) and a water cooled 560ti 2gb. guild wars 2 and runescape never put cpu above 55c. i have my cpu also watercooled by a single 120mm fan with a 5 fan push/pull air setup. only trouble i've been having is my computer freezing with mozilla at times... errrr.....
Cons: security is something i'm going to have to study for in college so I can just protect my computer by my own merit
Other Thoughts: i really need a motherboard upgrade, what good is a beast if it can't be overclocked, and is bottlenecked by poor memory? good chance i'll be buying a pair of 650ti's or wait a year.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It looks cool with blue light behind it. It pushes the air.
Cons: ITS SO NOISY! My gosh! Seriously don't get this fan if you want complete silence. Get the fans with the 3 speed fan controller. The fan controller I bought makes my fans make a humming noise. So like I said, 3 speed fan controller that's built into the fan would be your best bet.
Other Thoughts: The noise was traumatic. I use this setup, with the aftermarket cpu heatsink position in the case in mind. I get on average 36c idle and 57c underload with almost no noise
