This review is from: Akust Aluminum Chip Heatsink - 0.59"x0.59"x0.32"- 16Pack
Pros: They are a perfect size for putting on top of the alloy chokes on my Asus Strix 980ti. They are also a perfect size for the ram on your graphics card.
Cons: noneREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Over a month of using it and still acts like a beast. My Strix 980ti baseclock is actually 1293mhz and boostclock is 1405mhz. Why so much higher then the rated specs you say? Well I have Enzotech copper heatsinks on all the mosfets, voltage controller chip, alloy chokes etc on the board. I reach those speeds above with NO overclock and NO increased power limit aka TDP. This is the benefit of improved VRM cooling. No coil whine.
Cons: It is a long card but most people should know this. A close fit width wise with thermal armor on my Asus Z97 sabertooth board but it fits no problem.
Other Thoughts: If you want to know exactly which chips I put the heatsinks on then follow the link below. Also used an Arctic Xtreme III cooler no problem with the Asus Strix 980ti. Use Prolimatech PK3 thermal paste on the GPU to help lower the temps a couple Celcius lower.
Pros: upgraded from an i7 2700k OC to 4.6ghz. This 4790k at stock speeds scored 3340 points higher on CPU score with Passmark performance test compared to my old 2700k.
Cons: Bad quality TIM used instead of soldered like the good 2700k sandy bridge chips are. I hit 59-68C easily with a Noctua NHD15 cpu cooler compared to before where I barely went over 50C with an overclocked and overvolted sandy bridge.READ FULL REVIEW
