4.914GHz FX-4350: 51.4C
Pros: This all-copper unit looks fantastic. Fan is very quiet, and the unit cools extremely well; it is currently keeping my OC'd AMD below 52C during heavy use. Installation is a breeze on AM3, AM3+ sockets (if you read the instructions) since the only item required is the spring clip; installation on Asus M5A99FX Pro, and Gigabyte GA-990FXA UD3 took less than 2 minutes.
Cons: None at all.
Overall Review: I read a lot of complaints about how an item is bad because it "doesn't fit". That is not the fault of the manufacturer, but the builder; check the specs on a product before purchasing to ensure it fits. The builder is responsible for measuring things like case dimensions, video card dimensions, number and types of connectors, and CPU cooler dimensions. I guess I'm the Newegg oddball because I always check the manufacturers webpages for specifications and compatibility of various parts when doing a build. As a result I have not had a single item not fit or work properly. Remember the 6 P's : Proper Planning Prevents P!ss-Poor Performance.
Save Your Money
Pros: Other than it's ability to be used in a wet environment, there are none.
Cons: The biggest con is the one pulled by the manufacturer of this camera. Video quality is abyssmal. Does not zoom smoothly. Still photo quality is subpar to an inexpensive cell phone. Cannot take still snaps while using video function. Sound quality is atrocious. Documentation is sketchy at best, and the camera will not function as a PC cam if you have a 64-bit OS.
Overall Review: Save the cost of this camera, add a few dollars and buy something else. Video was shot in 720HD and the camera was mounted on a tripod. There is no audio in my video review because when I played it back there was too much cussing.
It's G.Skill; What More Is There To Say?
Pros: It's G.Skill RAM... have never had any issues with their products... a simple tweaking in the BIOS and it's running at the rated speed... temps are low due to the great design of the heatshields... these modules look fantastic in my case... price point sealed the deal.
