Pros: very strong, high IPC, and most of all, very easy to overclock. managed to clock it at 4.6Ghz and still be under 80c on my cooler master seidon 120v!
goes really well with my Zotac AMP! Edition GTX 760, very nice processor all around.
Cons: this isn't so much of a con of the processor itself but i won't be pre-ordering from newegg. i was stuck on pre-order ever since it came, i went to a different site, and boom, next day it's here.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The build of it is really nice, im using it on my AMD FX 6300 and it's keeping it pretty cooled down!
Overall, it's really great, dropped my temps on idle from 45c all the way down to 24-26c! while using cinebench, the temps never went past 39c!
Cons: the tubes on the water block are sturdy, so it is kind of difficult to hold the block down(when the radiator is installed i mean), so make sure you install the block first lol
Another thing you should note, the radiator itself is larger than 120mm, so make sure you have room in the fan slots otherwise you're going to have problems, i "rigged" mine to the case by installing the screws into the wrong holes so, make sure you check your case before you buy this!
Other Thoughts: This is meant for an I5 4690k which has yet to be released and arrive, so temporarily im using it on my current build:
AMD FX 6300 @ 3.5GHz-3.8GHz
Gigabyte 990FX Motherboard
Zotac AMP! Edition GTX 760 10% OC
Rosewill Green Series 630W PSU
ThermalTake V3 AMD Edition
Pros: Even though i haven't used it just yet(waiting for my 4690k >_>), it looks like a pretty solid build. once i get the new processor, i'll be able to give a full review.
Other Thoughts: This will actually be the first time i will ever build a system with a waterblock. but i hope everything goes well!READ FULL REVIEW
