Noctua NH-U12S 120x120x25 ( NF-F12 PWM) SSO2-Bearing ( Self-stabilising oil-presure bearing ) CPU Cooler

Pros: This was a great choice to cool my 4790K Haswell CPU. It's whisper quiet and keeps the temps down extremely well, even under load. I've been purchasing Noctua coolers for some time now and they all are just very high quality and efficient. You can't go wrong here.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: As everybody else has mentioned, it's a large unit so it may not work for everybody. I have an ASUS Z97 Deluxe motherboard and if I orient this to blow top-to-bottom it sits directly on top of my RAM so I turned it 90 degrees, which fit big deal.

Pros: I went to this from a 4-year old AMD CPU so my expectations were already high but my expectations were exceeded. I've been and AMD guy for a long time but I can't see going back after getting this. My video frame rate was the most remarkable uplift so now I can finally tap into the performance my video could never deliver with my old setup.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I didn't want to mess with the stock cooling setup so went with a Noctua NH-U12S rig. It's huge but cools my CPU very well.

Pros: Excellent card...maybe the best bang for the buck. I've had one for several months now but coupled with an older AMD CPU it was struggling on frame rates. I just upgraded everything (Intel i7) and added another one of these so I could run in SLI mode and now I crank my games up to maximum video and they look awesome. Frame rates have also increased by 10x even with dual monitors.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The cooling fans on these are very high quality. I've had a few Frozrs before and they all have performed perfectly.
