Pros: Nice UEFI, easy to overclock Fx Cpu's, looks cool
Cons: It died after 7 months. Turned the Pc on one morning and no POST. Got a red "CPU_led" on the Mobo. Asus game me and RMA number and told me to send back motherboard and CPU. So now I am waiting for 2 RMA's. VRM'S get very hot of you have any kind of liquid cooling. I have 7 fans in a Phantek Enthoo full atx case. Socket temps would reach 60c under heavy gaming with a 4.5GHz overclock @ 1.38v. That is in the winter with an ambient temp of 23C. I don't have AC so I can't overclock in the summer.
Other Thoughts: Need to develope a way to cool VRM heatsink for liquid cooler CPU. Maybe include a fan mount for an 80 or 40mm fan.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm
Pros: Works great! Can't break 50c on Prime95 torture test with my Fx8320. 4.4GHz @ 1.35v with ambient temp between 20 to 22c. I don't like corsair fans so I replaced them with a few Rosewill Hyperborea fans. Very quiet! Kind of easy to install. Overall
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: Corsair Link could use a face lift. Not very user friendly.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Moves a ton of air.. Super quiet!! With the fans at 100% the only thing I hear is the air moving through my case!
Cons: What is the deal with the rubber mounting thingies?
Other Thoughts: I bought this with 3 120mm fans of the same model to replace all the circulation fans in my case. I have a Corsair H60 cooling my FX8350 and the stock fan was a nuisance. Just too loud to tolerate. I put two 120mm fans in a push pull config on the rad and a 120mm at the front of the case with a 140 venting hot air out of the top. The 120 at the front forces enough air in to supply my GTX 770's (SLI) at keep them at a solid 60C under load. The two fans on the rad move a heavy amount of air across it to keep the CPU under 50C while gaming. Highly recommend these fans!!READ FULL REVIEW
