EVGA 01G-P3-1377-TR GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) FTW 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: Love this card's performance. Comes with already scorching clock speeds of 850 GPU / 1700 shader / 2000 memory. Overclocked to 900/1800/2200 with tiny voltage bump. Rock solid stable through all benchmarks. I DO think it is worth the extra cash to buy the Superclocked or F T W versions, as these are obviously "top shelf" cards to be able to run stable at these speeds. I have rarely seen a standard clocked GTX 460 be stable at these speeds with stock cooling. And the GTX 460 line is really at the sweet spot of the price / performance ratio at the moment.

Cons: Fan shroud rattles at times. Fan profile isn't to my liking. At low clock 2D state fan speed could be lower (currently at 30%, no reason it couldn't be at 20% or 15%). And in 3D games the fan does not ramp up speed quickly enough to keep temps down, and rarely goes over 50% even when core temps approach 70 deg. C. This can be corrected with software, but then you have to have a background app running 24/7.

4 out of 5 eggs Good basic cooler 11/22/2010

This review is from: MASSCOOL 8WT15-38 90mm Long life Bearing CPU Cooler

Pros: I purchased several of these coolers for PCs I have put together at my business. I did not need anything over the top, but I refuse to use the flimsy OEM Intel heatsink. This unit comes with a baseplate that mounts under the motherboard. This may be a minus to some that do not want to have to remove the motherboard to install a heatsink, but since I was using these on new system builds, it is the only way to go IMO. Unit does what it is supposed to do, and it is sturdy and quiet. The three PCs I have used these on are all Core 2 Duo 2.7GHz overclocked to 3.4GHz at stock voltage and this cooler is more than adequate for this application.

Cons: If you are looking to seriously overclock your CPU with the accompanying increase in core voltage, you are probably going to want a more heavy-duty cooler.
