SAPPHIRE  Radeon HD 7970 OC 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card (11197-01-40G)

Pros: Fast, quiet, and a simply amazing fans & heatsink. Runs 45C idle, and 56C full load; so much better than a reference cooler.

Cons: The Displayport to DVI active adapter casues a very tiny amount of tearing on the monitor that it's hooked up to. I didn't even notice it until after I had it for a week. Didn't lose an egg because 80% of manufacturers don't even include one. It saves people an extra $50

Other Thoughts: Just as a reference to other people that may be planning to run Eyefinity with this card. I'm running a 6024x1080 resolution, which is nothing to sneeze at, and I still get 40+fps on BF3 & Metro 2033 on High settings.

5 out of 5 eggs Works the same as Arctic Silver 5 05/29/2012

This review is from: Thermaltake CL-O0027 Thermal Grease

Pros: Spreads easy, gives me the same temps as Arctic Silver 5 for the same price, but you get TWICE the amount with the Thermaltake grease.

Cons: None.

ASUS P8Z68-V/GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

Pros: I've always loved ASUS boards, and this one is really no different. Always allow for easy overclocking, great layouts, and quality.

Cons: First ASUS board to have an issue with, out of the 10+ boards I've bought from them. My on-board audio died a little over a month after purchase. Luckily I had a spare sound card laying around.

Other Thoughts: I'll buy an ASUS Xonar Phoebus ROG sound card to replace the Creative Audigy SE that I'm currently using.

So ASUS will actually get another $200 from me because my on-board sound died.
