Delta AFC1212D-PWM 120mm Case cooler with TAC sensor

4 out of 5 eggs A Fan to Cool 08/14/2014

This review is from: Delta AFC1212D-PWM 120mm Case cooler with TAC sensor

Pros: Creates high volume cooling, uses only a 4-pin connector on the mobo, easy to install.

Cons: May use up to 9W. May cause computer to cool down before completely shutting off. I used to have my PC powered on light go off when I turned the PC off. Now, my PC stays on for four minutes afterward cooling down the mobo components.

XFX Double D Radeon R9 270 DirectX 11.2 R9-270A-CDFC 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Only one six pin power connector is a plus. I had a 4890 XFX card and it had a six and eight pin connector, but it was a factory overclock edition. Even when gaming this video card stays cool with Wolfenstein: The New Order. This video card is lighter than my last one. It will handle the new HD standard 4096k resolution. Price is relatively low for the performance I see from it. Having 2 GByte of video memory on the board is nice. XFX has the best video cards and never had one fail yet.

Cons: Double card width. Mostly an aluminum heat sink structure, but that contributes to less weight.

Intel Core i7-4790K Devil's Canyon Quad-Core 4.0 GHz LGA 1150 88W BX80646I74790K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4600

Pros: I upgraded from an Asus P5Q Pro Turbo, E8400 Intel processor with 8 Gigbyte Ram, and Intel SSD 330 series (5-year warranty) to the Phenominal "Devil's Canyon" 4790k, which CPU scores quadrupled and tripled in some events on PassMark 7.0. So it uses 88Watts, which is better than the Extreme LGA 2011 Intel processor. 22mm architecture results in less heat and small heat sink. Price because who really needs four or five video cards running, which is what the LGA 2011 X97 chipset was meant for. I am happy with the Z97 chipset that powers my one XFX ATI Radeon 4890, which was fast four years ago and still rocks! I have 8 cores that show up on Windows 7 Resource Monitor, which is impressive. This is only a Quad Core, but runs like an 8-core. Intel continues to lead the processor market for productivity and this processor will help you achieve that!! The 4.0GHz speed is one whole gigahertz faster than my old Core 2 Duo E8400.

Cons: It doesn't handle "graphics' compared to some AMD processors in the same category. The standard heat sink is tiny.

Other Thoughts: I recommend the Artic Freezer i11 with Artic Silver 5 for a cooling solution. Approximately 22 dollars for the i11 and 10 dollars for a tube of Artic Silver, which cheap your new processor plenty cool without breaking the budget.
