Great HS/FAN setup!
Pros: CHEAP! Works very well...
Cons: Instructions, junk thermal compound.
Overall Review: The Vigor Monsoon III was sold out when I purchased this item, I'm glad I bought it. I used Zalman STG1 instead of the junk that came with this product and it keeps my i7 920 at 30 degrees celcius while idle. The instructions were a little funky, but the diagrams were dead on, this helped tremendously. Has great clearance on a Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD4P, all memory slots are still useable. Buy this product and you won't regret it.
This is a GREAT product.
Pros: Cheap, FAST, worked great out of the box.
Overall Review: In throughput tests I'm able to get ~15 MB/sec (yes, megabytes not megabits) from a computer with this device to a hard-wired pc with a gigabit ethernet connection. The wireless pc is about 15 feet away and the long way through a fireplace. No dropped connections, no installation issues with Windows 7 x64 (download driver from Rosewill's website and use the Windows wireless config tool.
What else can I say?
Pros: FAST FAST FAST, Excellent bang for your buck...
Overall Review: There isn't really anything else to add, this processor does it all and with ease. Overclocking is VERY easy to accomplish. I paired this with the Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD4P, 6GB OCZ Gold DDR3 1600 and the Scythe Mugen 2 (SCMG-2000), everything worked great from first boot!
