Hyper 212 evo
Pros: I built a low budget machine and really wanted to put liquid cooling in it but decided to go air instead. theres a reason this thing has 3000 positive reviews. it was easy to install and i thought it was going to be really big but it was actually smaller and not to heavy. I overclocked a g3258 to 4.4 running at 48c on max load.
Cons: No cons yet
Overall Review: if you are thinking of getting a low budget closed loop like a h60. you will be paying extra for the "coolness factor and thats it. This will run colder than h60 with extreme overclocking for half the price. Only way i would get a watercoller is if it was an h100.
Pros: Yeah this baby performs. Overclocked at 2400. Benching the same as a 6900 xt. Getting 120+ frames in warzone on everything maxed out out on 1080p. Its fast Its pretty
Cons: Its huge. Make sure you have a big case It need 3 8 pins I mean its massive
Overall Review: Im glad I got it. Its really good
Pros: Its black and white and looks awesome. Sli for duel gpu, z97. what more do you want? when it arrived i followed the normal steps of installing. Dont touch the board in spots that have circuitry, keep touching metal to ground yourself and worked perfectly out of the gate. I really like the msi fast boot and command center to read temps and voltage. it really does look great being black and white.
Cons: it didnt come with any screws and the bios to oc was a little confusing at 1st but i figured it out and works fine. The OC genie sucks, gives me a blue screen whenever i click it so i just OC manually.
Overall Review: got this with a g3258 oc to 4.4 with an evo 212. 8gb 1866 ram and a 850 evo ssd with a seagate 1tb. Running r9 270x and it runs everything on ultra easily.
Pros: So simple its great. Very fast ssd with great cloning software. loaded my OS on it and it boots windows in 29 seconds. Photoshop loads from click to open in about 5 seconds. I have it paired with 1866 8gb ram
Cons: it didnt come with a cradle for your hdd rack
Overall Review: the benchmarks on this guy are off the charts and its a great price for 250gb.
worked out great
Pros: Great cpu for a great price. Unlocked with high potential. Overclocked mine to 4.3 on stock voltage stock cooler and it runs about 55c.
Cons: only a duel core
Overall Review: I debated for weeks and researched every cpu on the market to fit my budget. I almost got an fx6300 then a i3.4460. after researching this little guy i couldnt say no. Its a great price got mine for 62. overclockable to 4.5 with evo 212 and its a haswell 1150 so you can upgrade to a i5 later on if you get some extra cash. I replaced a e6750 and its like 10 times faster.
