Pros: GREAT COOLER! I7 4770k I got was a total dud. Barely does 4.3Ghz @ 1.35V!!!!
I am running 4.2ghz atm on adaptive and this cooler idles at 34-38C
This is 4C cooler than the H100i that this thing replaced.
Cons: Pump is a little louder than the H100i. Supplied fans are hair dryers. Replaced them with 120mm Corsairs...
Don't like the tubing nearly as much as the H100i.
Other Thoughts: Could be $30 cheaper...
Overall I'm happy with this cooler.
Pros: - Great features.
- Great value.
- Decent support from Asus.
- Easy to setup and use.
- Cool color scheme and LEDs
- UEFI is amazing.
- Quick to Post and get in windows
Cons: Bios freezes and hangs from time to time *Probably not a hardware issue.*
Doesn't have a clear CMOs button and opps for the cr@ppy jumper method instead.
Doesn't have switches to kill PCI-e ports or RAM Dimm slots.
Bios update changelogs are too vague.
What the heck does "Improved Overall System Stability." really mean?!?
Onboard Audio drivers need a TON of work... *Pops and hisses galore! And a bug that sets the volume at 100% every boot... This was all noted using Optical Audio. and a Z5500 5.1 system.*
No onboard WiFi.
Other Thoughts: Overall I really like and enjoy the value and feature of the Hero Sku. wouldn't mind spending another $20-30 for a bit more though...
They need to add some things for their next go at it but I'm satisfied overall.
Pros: Let me preface this review with the fact that I got a cr@ppy costsa rica chip that doesn't OC for cr@p.
Barely hits 4.5 Stable and is super voltage hungry.
- Chip is power efficient.
- Easy to De-lid.
- Built in iGPU
- Built in iMC
- Easy to OC *If you're lucky.*
Cons: My chip falls in the realm of b@stard children that are spoiled whiney know it all that need all your money always *Voltage*
Runs super duper hot! *Temps load at close to 80C on water!*
Other Thoughts: intel should ditch the iGPU... or bake it into the chipset and not the chip. Too much heat for a feature 80% of the people buying these won't use... at least strip it from the K SKU.
I didn't wast $700 on a video card for some subpar one on my CPU.
