Nice and cold

CoolIT Systems VAN-R120 Vantage A.L.C. CPU Cooler
CoolIT Systems VAN-R120 Vantage A.L.C. CPU Cooler

Pros: Keeps my OC'ed quad AMD at about 32c idel and 47c maxed out. I did replace the thermal pad with Artic Silver 5. Easy to install and is about as cool looking as it gets.

Cons: Does not make me coffee.

Overall Review: The display shows you the water temp, not the core temp.

Works as described

Arctic Silver Arcticlean Thermal material Remover & Surface Purifier ACN-60ML (2-PC-SET)

Pros: This stuff just plain works. Use bottle 2 on your new CPU and just see what residue it removes. Makes the surface perfect for Arctic Silver 5 ;)

Cons: None

Just as amazing as the first time

Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G
Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G

Pros: You cant get any better then this stuff. I don't understand why people complain there only enough for 2 CPU's, If you are using is properly the small tube will last a long time. Read the instructions on there website and don't over apply tom much will be just as bad a none at all.

Cons: None.

Easy an scalable

Pros: Combined this with a AMD Phenom X2 and it unlocked the 2 extra cores with one setting change (its in the manual don't complain unless you read it) Haven't tried the Hydra yet, as i dont have a extra GPU around but hope to try it soon.

Cons: Brown??? really they cant come up with a nicer color?

AMD Phenom II X2 560 Black Edition - Phenom II X2 Callisto Dual-Core 3.3 GHz Socket AM3 80W Desktop Processor - HDZ560WFGMBOX

Pros: Unlocked to quad on my MSI 870A and overclocked to 3.9 using MSI auto OC button. Using this with a CooLIT Vantage A.L.C. water cooler and after 24 hours of stable Prime 95 temps were recorded at 46c.

Cons: Ummm at this price you want me to come up with a con?

G.SKILL Trident 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL8D-4GBTD

Pros: No problems at all just plopped them in my MSI and cranked out some speed. Looks cool and the heat spreaders are a heafty non cheap spreader.

Cons: None.
