Pros: Awesome cooler, temps stay under 50C at idle and under load and thats all I ask for, went from OCing a i5-750 2.66GHz from 3.9GHz to 4.2GHz easy xD
Cons: Only thing that bothered me was that I couldnt put the tubes through the hole that were on my case for liquid cooling, seeings how I put the radiator on the outside of my case. But that was a quick fix by a 15 min case modding experience xD not a huge con and definately not worth taking off eggs.
Overall Review: If you can afford this over some of the fan/heatsink coolers then do so, just make sure you can fit the radiator and fan inside your case without any obstructions.
Pros: lots of useful features for some people, the TurboV is useful for OCing the CPU which with the stock intel fan I was able to hit 3.7GHz with my i5-750. all in all it is a great mobo for a budget build and if you dont need SLI.
Cons: Nothing at all, it works and I have the capability to upgrade, thats all I care about.
Overall Review: I didnt look close enough when I bought it but it dosent support SLI, I think I confused this one with some of the others from the P7P55D series. Oh well though its not anyone elses fault but my own xD
Pros: Great case keeps everything cool. I replaced the rear 120mm fan with an Antec TriCool Red LED fan jsut to get a little more light outta the case.
Cons: No see-through side panel but its hardly a con seeings how you can see right through the GIANT 230mm fan
Overall Review: If you light the inside of the case up you can see right in to all of your components like a freeking window!! its really kinda cool and I'm going to get a few more red LED lights for it =P
Pros: I absolutely love this Processor, I just built my first computer and let me tell you this is a big upgrade from a Pentium 4 2.8Ghz. I could not be happier with my purchase from Newegg, they made sure that every single component was packed safely!
Cons: none at all
Overall Review: if you want to OverClock obviously you really should get an aftermarket CPU cooler, I'm going to order one as soon as I get some more money but hey the stock fan works well for everyday use =]
