5 out of 5 eggs Fits in a standard case 02/09/2013

This review is from: Noctua NH-C12P SE14 140mm SSO CPU Cooler

Pros: I really love this model. It fits in a standard sized case. I like there other models too but you have to make sure the case is wide enough for the larger units.
I don't even worry about heat using these heat sinks. Just drop them in and turn it on.
Comes with all the hardware you need to mount it properly.
Good instructions.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Will continue to use Noctua coolers for all my builds. Takes the "heat" worry out of things.

Pros: After setting XMP in the bios the timing was detected automatically.
Bought 16 gigs for one pc and the 32 gig set for another - both PCs running great.
No problems with compatibility on the Sniper 3 or Sniper M3 motherboards.

Cons: None at this time.

Other Thoughts: Keep your receipts - these things have a long warranty. Although I have never had to use it.

Pros: Set up a system with this chip and another with an i7. Not really much difference with real word applications.
Runs fast!

Cons: To save a buck I decided to use the on chip graphics for a while instead of buying a graphics card. Although games played fairly well, streaming video, even in a reduced screen such as youtube would not run properly at all. Chip seemed as though it just could not keep up. So, for any semi demanding applications, you still need a graphics card.

Other Thoughts: A good savings over an i7 chip and you probably won't notice much of a difference.
