This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes
Pros: Man this thing works is all I can say. From the start it had my Athlon x2 260 Regor cool as can be at 29C. I bumped up from 3.2 to 3.5ghz no worries. It goes up to 37C after an hour of BF3. I don't hear it over the 4 120mm case fans so no change in noise, just a medium hum. (arctic 5 thermal compound)
Cons: nota one
Other Thoughts: Since I was installing a new board at the time, installing it was a breeze. directions are a bit fuzzy, but it has pictures lol. I have a Rosewill Destroyer case and this thing is about 3/8 " from the other side of it. So make sure you have a wide case. It lined up almost exact with the exhaust port fan so i still have a push pull so to speak. The fan just misses my first stick of ram so I had to install it before the fan.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASRock 880GM-LE FX AM3+ AMD 880G + SB710 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: It has all the stuff I need and more. I like the placement of things as well. It works fine for what I need.
Cons: none at this time, works fine.
Other Thoughts: I read on Wikipedia that the 880G chip should work in hybrid crossfire with my HD5670. After 2 days of trying, I gave up. it is either disabled in CCC or it has a problem in Win7 dev.mngr. I may figure it out one day. It runs great with just my graphics card at 2.0x16READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: fit right into my budget, popped them and they work great.
Other Thoughts: Bought these for my 880GM-LE FX and they worked right of the bat. running 8,8,8,21 doing fineREAD FULL REVIEW
