This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm
Pros: Bought this during Black Friday 2013. Keeps my 965 BE way cooler and quieter than the stock CPU cooler. Idle temps were around 41c, and now it would usually be 27c, as cool as my MSI gtx 660s. Have my CPU overclocked to 3.8ghz and it reaches 41c on default or quiet settings with Corsair link. Fans are loud IF you have them on high settings. Overall great product, happy that I bought it.
Cons: None really, but beware the amount of wires is connected to the CPU water block, not a problem for me but it can be for others
Other Thoughts: The fans it comes with are the SP120s, looks exactly the same design, it's even stated that's it's the SP120s, just to clear things up for the people who say they're going to go buy SP120s as replacements... Another thing, my fan filters on the corsair 500r white, it seems to bulge a little with the rad on top and fans underREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Does what it does best! Running in SLI, pretty quiet even though temps are @ 50c while playing battlfield 4 on ultra.
Cons: None really, other than close limits of overclocking.
Other Thoughts: Not sure if its just mine, but BF4 tends to crash with DX11 error/out of memory error when it isn't. This only happened so far in SLI mode, but when i go single GPU its good.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 500R Arctic White Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case
Pros: Upgraded to this from an Thermaltake MSI Commander Snow. I said to myself i would never spend anything above 60 for a case but im happy i did. The case is very well built. I'm also loving the fact that its very sturdy. I also like the White LED fans it comes with. It has LOTS of room for a gaming rig. Thumbscrews on the panels won't fall out, meaning you wont be losing them either. The 3 stage fan control and LED on/off is also something pretty cool, not sure if you can turn the LED's on/off with other fans though. All the fans that come with it aren't really noticeable either, very quiet case. Also has removable fan filters at the bottom.
Cons: Power supply screw holes on the case are off, only was able to get two screws in on the left side. Other than that, nothing else really.
Other Thoughts: I have a Semi Modular Seasonic M12II 620 and the 12v cpu doesnt really reach my motherboard's 8pin cpu if i routed it behind the motherboard tray. So make sure your 12v Cpu rail is long enough if your planning on routing it behind the motherboard tray.READ FULL REVIEW
