Pros: I really love it, it's super fast, and can handle ANYTHING I throw at it at 1600x900 (horrible moniter). I'm surprised it was this cheap. :)
Cons: - Rebate. Always had bad problems with rebates, hope this one goes better.
Overall Review: XFX always has a lifetime warranty, so I don't have to worry about it crapping out on me. :)
Pros: -Very easy to install -Low profile -Will perform better then an H80, and is cheaper then an H60
Cons: Backplate is crooked on my motherboard, but that's because I installed it wrong, like an idiot. No eggs off though, it has no impact on performance
Overall Review: I'm glad I bought it at best buy, I only paid $54.99, and didn't have to pay for shipping, and wait for it. Keeps my processor at 4.1GHz under 30c on idle, and 55c on prime95 load. Specs - Intel Core i5 2500K @ 4.1GHz - 16GB G.Skill DDR3 1333 - XFX AMD Radeon HD 6970 w/ Arctic Cooling Twin Turbo II - GA-P67X-UD3-B3 - Antec Nine Hundred Two V3 Case - Antec HCG-750W 80+ Power Supply - Antec Kuhler H20 620
Pros: - Quad Core - Can overclock well - Chance to unlock 2 extra cores - Low power consumption
Cons: None at all. :)
Overall Review: It looks like, if your buying these to unlock, it just depends on if your lucky to get a rebadged 1090T, which allows for a heavy overclock on 6 cores, or you get unlucky, and get a low binned hexa that failed. Me, personally, got a rebadged 1090T, because I have this thing unlocked to 6 cores, 4.1GHz w/1.42v Runs a bit warmer then I'd like, but that's probably because of my overclock.
Pros: Very good Dropped load temps from 86c to 59c Allowed for great overclock (880/1375 > 1000/1500) on XFX Radeon HD 6970
Cons: Not very easy to install, lots of pieces, but I knew this when I bought it, and was prepared.
Overall Review: Buy this if you need some GPU cooling, it really does the trick!
