Great little CPU
Pros: Fantastic O.C potential, Kicks tail on everything I throw at it from 3D rendering, to heavy gamming. Currently sitting at 4.7 GhZ pared with Mushkin Black Line 8-8-8-24 Triple chan. Currently keeping cool with H100 close water loop, highest its gotten was 45c. Prime 95 88c. for about 8 hours. Sure its a little dated, but I think i can still woop some tail on most chips today.
Cons: There are no cons at this moment, nor i doubt there will be.
Overall Review: OBSD 800D G.1 sniper mobo 990x 4.7GhZ Mushkin 12Gig ram 8 Latency x2 Zotac AMP GTX 580's x1 Aglity 3 SSD 240 4-1TB HHD's x1 VR 150 gig drive 1050 mushkin PSU. Win. 7 Ultimate Not too bad right. maybe i'll upgrade to the next gen. some time.
Fantastic tri-monitor set up.
Pros: All three monitors work great, so far no issues with the power buttons, colors, and Nvidia glasses. All three working at 120Hz and there very beautiful with all games, furthermore the 3D looks wonderful!
Cons: Takes a few sec. to power on but not a big issue, just for you all to know. Some have trouble with the power buttons breaking and dropping. Not for me, not yet (knocks on wood)
Overall Review: Paired with x2 GTX AMP 580s, both reach a temp of 72c under heavy use. These cards are well built and made to take the heat and stress, so no biggy.
Great ram till BSOD
Pros: The three sticks of ram at cas 7-9-8-24 did very well with the over clocked intell extreme 17 990x. Worked great with with all rendering and 3D apps. I'd recommend this product to anyone. Looked great with the G.1 sniper mother board and corsair H100 water loop. it def. turned heads and made the machine look like a nuclear power plant. I'd buy again.
Cons: Five to six months in...Constant BSOD. Granted I worked the hell out of this ram and I always got what I needed, now it is sure putting a damper on Work. Switched them out with an older G.skill ripjaw ram that i had lying around. So One of the stick did go bad, I'm not upset things happen oh well. I'm going to run memtest over the weekend to see wich one is bad and call Mushkin to see if they can help me out.
Overall Review: Mushkin, please provide me a number to wich I can contact you at please and thank you.
Pros: Love how it looks, great performance, rips appart all my games that I have currently (thats alot). It rendered my Xbox useless now, and its currently collecting dust and spiders.
Cons: uhhh, hmmm...well, maybe the fact it didn't make me an icecream cone when I took it out of the box.
Overall Review: plays minesweeper pretty well.
