Overall Review: dont know what digitaljedi is talking about. My Q9550 works great with this board and i have it overclocked to 3.4ghz.
Pros: -overclocks well
-does not get too hot for a quad
Cons: included heatsink is a joke. definitely going to need an aftermarket cooler if you want to overclock.
Overall Review: overclocked mine to 3.6ghz. my zalman cooler keeps it at 26-31C at idle and i have not seen this thing go over 53C under full load
-no dead pixels
-brilliant bright display
-you have to see this thing to believe it. the picture quality is amazing.
Cons: speakers suck but what do you expect
Overall Review: i love how this thing looks better then my 52inch 1080p tv. I was so worried i was going to get some dead pixels from reading the reviews but its perfect. i wish the stand was more adjustable but i cant take away an egg for that!
Pros: -very quiet!
-keeps my cpu very cool
Cons: -difficult to install
-some of the fins were a little bent, but shouldnt make too much of a difference.
Overall Review: have this on a Q9550 overclocked to 3.4ghz. This cooler keeps it at 27-31C at idle and 53C under full load. I never expected it to perform this well. the install, however, was a pain. The instructions are not clear, i thought i was gonna snap my mobo wile screwing in the clip that holds it down. and be careful with those fins, they're sharp!
Pros: very quiet, looks pretty
Cons: slight wobble
doesnt move as much air as i hoped
Overall Review: got this to replace stock fan in antec 300. waaaay more quiet but obviously with that come less air being moved. have this hooked up to a scythe fan controller, found a sweet spot around 930 rpm. overall i'm satisfied but i wish it moved a little more air.
