Love it.

COOLER MASTER V8 RR-UV8-XBU1-GP 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler Compatible with Intel 1366/1155/775 and AMD AM3/AM2+/AM2
COOLER MASTER V8 RR-UV8-XBU1-GP 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler Compatible with Intel 1366/1155/775 and AMD AM3/AM2+/AM2

Pros: Sucker keeps my i7 OC'ed from 2.66 to 3.8 at around 25C (lower than the temps with stock cooler at stock speed) and after running prime95 for 6 and 1/2 hours, max temps of each core never exceeded 84C, does exactly what I needed it to do

Cons: None this works perfectly, check Other thoughts if thinking about getting it with EVGA X58 + ANTEC 900.

Overall Review: ATTENTION: EVGA X58 + ANTEC 900 BUYERS this will NOT fit without some case modding, (link below) unlike the most common problem with this getting in the way of the side fan clips, evga x58 cpu sits high making the v8 hit the top side panel track, this is fixed buy cutting out a tiny inch of metal, it's super easy. Once that's done it fits right in and hell I could even use the optional side fan yet if I want. http://i36.photobucket.com/albums/e24/The_Carnage/SDC11123.jpg

Solid upgrade from mx518

Logitech G5 7 Buttons Tilt Wheel USB Wired Laser 2000 dpi Mouse
Logitech G5 7 Buttons Tilt Wheel USB Wired Laser 2000 dpi Mouse

Pros: Great DPI, TONS of keys...all of which are remappable, I kinda like the + in front of the wheel but I'm already used to this style and works great, I use both +/- keys in gaming, both are pretty easily reached. All and all a solid and great gaming mouse.

Cons: Its pretty hard to press JUST M3, kinda always end up pressing either right or left scroll while trying to hit M3, you can either remap the side scrolls to M3 or use just left or right scroll for 2 keys vs 1. only other thing is I LOVED the + in front of the wheel like in the mx518...but its in the back, you get used to it so it doesnt even really matter.

Overall Review: BUY IT!
