Pros: Update* put my 25 san ace mc liquid cooler on this and couldnt be happier runs at 16C at idle on the low fan and pump speed. during stress tests under full cpu load it will not go above 35c even with a non copper based block.

Cons: None buy this

SeaSonic M12II 750 SS-750AM2 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Full-modular Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: very quiet ran cool

Cons: failed after 30 days with an Oc 7970 ghz and 8320@4.6 , 7 fans,and pump. did it one other time but i was able to shut it off then re power it and it was ok.

Overall Review: i'm actually disappointed it failed so quickly, my cheap coolmax 700w lasted longer than this by far also the 750w gold one is the same price now

complete junk on windows 8

Pros: it looks nice

Cons: on install it wouldnt even detect a 5ghz ap, kept adjusting everything , reloaded the driver and it decided to show up after a few minutes and worked fine the first day after reboot it no longer found the connection, tried connecting to my 2.4 ap and it would connect but have no internet somehow even with a valid ip. reloaded the driver plenty of times still nothing so I ripped it out after less than 1 day

Overall Review: junk my ddwrt wrt 54g in client bridge works 100x better than this. should have just used this

Pros: was a great drive that was almost snappy like a ssd,

Cons: had this in my work laptop that replaced an old WD black, only lasted almost a year today before it started failing. smart says ok but drive test and read/writes failed, couldnt even clone this drive so i now have to reload everything already requested an RMA

good cpu

AMD FX-9370 Vishera 8-Core 4.4 GHz Socket AM3+ 220W FD9370FHHKBOF Desktop Processor - Black Edition
AMD FX-9370 Vishera 8-Core 4.4 GHz Socket AM3+ 220W FD9370FHHKBOF Desktop Processor - Black Edition

Pros: did not recieve mine yet but I got it for $200 to upgrade my 8320 clocked at 4.8 stable@ 1.5v to me my 8320 must really the luck of the draw since it will go higher but its not stable. Anyways I bought this to help keep my 7970s at full load in very cpu intensive sections where it may drop to 85. I plan on clocking to 5.2-5.4 on my 2x220mm rads to see how it goes.

Cons: heat, I dont care what anyone says, you need liquid unless you plan on using the turbo to clock up and down. Hopefully everyone knows that when there is no load on these fx cpus it will not read the cpu temp correct at all. Under load is where they will read correctly to a point. Only a few boards support this cpu and they are the 140w boards

Overall Review: sabertooth 990fx r2.0 2x7970 ghz 750w+550w psu 2x220mm rads-cpu only

SAPPHIRE Vapor-X Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition 3GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card 100351VXSR
SAPPHIRE Vapor-X Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition 3GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card 100351VXSR

Pros: wow what a card going from 550ti sli quiet besides this annoying fan noise at 3100 rpms but it is a used card i got nice cool temps plays bf3 on ultra maxed out at 100fps as well as more quality settings in catalyst with the beta drivers

Cons: massive card so make sure you have enough room

Overall Review: I want another one for xfire!!!! I wish sapphire did warranty for transfer owners like other brands
