Part Reviews

Motherboard

Very nice board, never had any problem. A lot of features for overclocking abilities.

Storage

Got this in some promo. Load times, transfer speed, write speed all pretty decent.

Storage

6 years and counting. Never failed me once.

Video Card

Was indecisive between this one and the GTX 760 (220$) Was basically a no-brainer since I get the same performance at a lower price.

if the cpu get to that temp the I recommend getting a new one, maybe a cooler master hyper 212 evo?

I have a hyper 212 on my son's i5 750 and with the fan profile set to quiet his load temps are 68c @ 3.45ghz. If I were to replace the stock 212 fan with a pair of HSP fans and set the fan profile to normal or performance I'm sure 4.0ghz would be definitely doable without temp problems, but to be honest that CPU is very peppy at 3.45ghz (performs better than our oldest son's FX-6300 @3.5ghz....) and I didn't see the need to push the old CPU so hard when it performs just fine in gaming as it is.

Are you happy with the Raijintek Aidos cooler in terms of looks, performance and sound level?
