Cooler Master Seidon 120V – Compact All-In-One CPU Liquid Water Cooling System with 120mm Radiator and Fan
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I got this with the Cooler Master CM 690 III tower bundle, and I have to say it works well. My temps with an AMD FM2+ 7850k @ 4.1 GHZ cap at 40 degrees Celsius, and it idles around 25-30 C. My old CM GeminII heatsink idled around 20-25 C, but hit 60 C while doing heavy gaming on my old Intel 3570K at 4.2 Ghz, as a comparison.

I am also glad I got a pump that did not have the rattling noise that I read about. It's pretty quiet!

Cons: The fan that came with my case is pretty bad, maxing out at 1200 RPMs; the one that comes with this goes past 2000 on high settings. I'd highly recommend a push-pull fan setup with this radiator, and using fans that are set at 1500 RPM+ for better cooling. As for the cooler itself, the only issue I had was mounting the fans on the radiator; an extra hand was very helpful to have around for this!

Other Thoughts: The radiator is working well for me; before playing Arma 3 or high end graphical games caused my CPU to run quite hot at 60 C or more, but now it caps out at 40 C, to my amazement. I will probably stick with liquid cooling from now on, due to its efficiency and size.

Cooler Master CM 690 III - Mid Tower Computer Case with Seidon 120V Water Cooling System and Windowed Side Panel
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This case is an amazing upgrade from my old Thermaltake Black Widow case. It's solid, sleek and really roomy inside! It also has a great tool-less design, easy access dust filters, and a side window + liquid cooler pump as nice bonuses. Also: Mine came with grommets!

Cons: Arrived with part of the case cracked and popped out on the front bezel; I pushed it back in and I can hardly see it, as well as it doesn't pop back out at all. I blame bad shippers, no eggs docked because of that!

Other Thoughts: I'm really satisfied with this case. I got it for 99.99 compared to full price at 119.99, and the liquid radiator is a nice bonus, as I've wanted to try liquid cooling for some time. Hopefully the pump and radiator work without a hitch; I have yet to try it. I've heard others have had issues with loud pumps from air bubbles being in the pump, and I hope that isn't the case with the one I have.

Cooler Master Silent Pro M2 - 620W Power Supply with 80 PLUS Bronze Certification and Modular Cables
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Semi-modular, cable management, good amount of power, got half off!

Cons: The reasons I deducted one egg are as follows:

The cables are a bit short to use multiple cables for devices; the multi-SATA cable for example has very short lengths between the SATA plugins, making it a bit difficult to plug them in all along the same wire.

The second issue is that I have to plug in two PCIe power cables to power one GPU with two six-pin plugins. It would have been better if these cables had two 6+2 pin power connectors per cable instead of a 6+2 pin and an 8 pin.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I'm satisfied to get this for 60$. However, I would not have been satisfied with this product if I would have got it for full price at 120$, due to some simple design issues for the supplied cables.
