Pros: Had this for 8 months now. I was able to hit 4.4 Ghz on both the Core and Ring with out taking the voltages off Auto. Have been running it at 4.6 Ghz 1.227v Core & 4.4 Ghz Ring. With a Corsair H100i acompanied by two silverstone 110 CFM fans I rarely go above 65 C
Cons: I've researched and researched but not matter what I do I am un able to up my Base Clock Strap. With my old 965XE i was able to up my base clock all the way up to 210 and turn down my multiplier. The Base Clock Strap on this CPU was supposed to do the same thing in increments and I cant even run the lowest 1.25. Not worth an egg though, cause this CPU is really fantastic otherwise.
Other Thoughts: Its on a MSI Z87-G45 MB, 4X4GB GSkill Trident X 2400 10-12-11-29-1N, 2 Corsair Neutron SSD's in RAID0, PNY GTX 780READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I have two of these working in RAID0. They are fast and well priced. Had them for 8 months now and no issues. I push the power button and in 31 seconds Im playing Skyrim or FSX or on the internet searching.
Cons: None so far
Other Thoughts: Wish I'd splurged on 4 of them.
i7 4770k @ 4.6 Ghz
MSI Z87-G45 MB
4x4GB GSkill 2400 Mhz Trident X @ 10-12-11-29-1N
and two of these in RAID0
This review is from: SILVERSTONE FM121-B 120mm Case Cooling Fan
Pros: High 110 CFM for your $. Moves alot of air. Quiet yet effective at lower RPM.
Cons: Loud at high RPM. Some people may not like the manual control.
Other Thoughts: I recomend them if you dont mind the manual control.
I used two of these to relpace the 77 CFM Corair fans on my Corsair H100i CPU liquid cooler. It made a big difference on my Haswell i7 build. @ 4.5 GHz I was reaching 85* C playing the CPU intensive FSX. With these fans at full blast I manage 75*C @ 4.6 GHz 1.227v and 90*C @ 4.7 Ghz 1.278v. I only tested 4.7 Ghz briefly, 90*C is too high for my liking. 4.8 Ghz fails an intel CPU stress test and it also throttles down if stable. I wired both fans to a single controller and i usually let them idle for normal everday computing. Skyrim only needs about 50% and I rarely hit 60*C.
