Most Favorable Review

Beautiful and Quiet

Thermaltake CLP0554 80mm Sleeve CPU Cooler
Thermaltake CLP0554 80mm Sleeve CPU Cooler

Pros: I love this heatsink. I was looking for something to fit on my GIGABYTE GA-890GPA-UD3H and this totally fit the bill. And it matched my red color scheme - so that was definitely a plus. Cools great and is completely silent. When from the AMD Phenom II stock cooler which was horrible. Install was an absolute breeze. So easy that I was actually a little suspicious at first. I've never installed a CPU cooler without loosing a little blood :-P This thing looks really amazing. Shiny metal blades, red LED and silent cooling - it is definitely my favorite upgrade so far :)

Cons: Absolutely none.

Overall Review: This is the heatsink you've been looking for.

Small and Irritating

EVERCOOL FAN-EC4007M12CA 40mm Case Cooling Fan
EVERCOOL FAN-EC4007M12CA 40mm Case Cooling Fan

Pros: Good price, nice small size that can fit... anywhere!

Cons: I bought these little fans to fit on my case and provide a little extra cooling because i was having some heating issues. I bought 3 to line up on a grill I had near the bottom of my case. Once I got them all hooked up, they assalted my ears with a high pitched buzzing noise. Even when i unplugged 2 of them and just left one running, it was still annoying.

Overall Review: The extra airflow they provided definately wasnt worth the extra noise, especially because my current build is pretty quite. If you don't have a quite build or can handle the extra noise, then these might work out for you.

Lovely, lovely silence

Thermaltake CLP0554 80mm Sleeve CPU Cooler
Thermaltake CLP0554 80mm Sleeve CPU Cooler

Pros: Completely quiet. Very cool looking in my case. And most importantly the easiest install I've ever experienced (for AM3 owners). The hardest part was getting rid of the old stock cooler. Putting in this baby was a breeze. Fits great on my Gigabyte 890GPA - I was concerned when I got it because it was bigger than I expected. Seriously - this thing is not playing around. But it has plenty of clearance at the bottom for my RAM and my case was wide enough (by an inch) for its impressive height.

Cons: Now I have to come to grips with how absolutely silent my apartment is :-D

Great Board

Pros: Great Board - easy install and honestly a beautiful design. The sata connections on the side are a bit annoying if your case has a tight fit but not a big deal.

Cons: None.

Pros: Beautiful Case, great airflow and nice tooless design. Very sturdy, solid design. Very cool feature allows you to turn off the led-lights for a night-time "stealth mode" - which is nice - I definitely don't need a red night-light :-P Front panel is very nice with perfectly situated buttons for either floor-level towers or desk level

Cons: Very tight fit - even with just the PSU and the fans on the case I had a decently difficult time maneuvering my GIGABYTE GA-890GPA-UD3H (12 x 9.6 dimensions) mobo into the case. Also doing all the wiring was a pretty tight fit. Not a big enough pain to take an egg off because the case is really outstanding but you'll definitely need smaller hands for some of the components.

Overall Review: Despite the size problems I love this case - I definitely recommend it. However, if you are buying mobo's larger than 12 x 9.6 they definitely won't fit. Also, I can't imagine that there would be room for video cards with an extended chasis as my old 8800GT only had a little bit of room left around the back end.

Good Fan

Pros: Moves air quickly and quietly. Plus has some pretty cool, and bright, led lights

Cons: A couple days ago one my blue led lights went out, probably due to loose wires.
