Thermaltake Water 3.0 Ultimate (CL-W007-PL12BL-A) Enthusiasts Class Water/Liquid CPU Cooler 360MM
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This thing is extremely effective at cpu cooling. About 10C (sometimes more) cooler than my previous 240mm AIO, and that's with lower fan speeds as well. My 12 thread CPU hardly ever makes it past 50C. Very nice.

The tubes are also long and easy bend to your installation needs.

Cons: This thing carries quite a premium over 240mm units, but only offers more rad space and another cheap fan. Speaking of the fans, if you're going for silent operation like myself, the stock fans are best left in the box.

The pump itself is quite noisy. Turning the speed down mostly solved problem with no negative effects on performance.

Finally, the unit is very plain. It comes with no software, and the block itself is just a boring circle, with no led's or anything.

Other Thoughts: This unit greatly surpassed my expectations as far as cooling goes. Reviews only put this thing on par with other AIO's that feature shorter rad's, but I found it to be far better. However, I'd be more satisfied if it weren't so expensive.

MSI X99S SLI Plus LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Has a very attractive black / silver color scheme. Comes with MSI military class components, which are very solid in my experience. So far it has been very stable. I like the included software, especially intel extreme tuning utility. It's great for monitoring cpu temps and speed, and comes with some very useful stress tests.

Cons: No onboard debug LED is probably the biggest thing that sticks out. The BIOS lacks the ability to save profiles. Would also have liked an onboard creative sound chip, but that would understandably drive the price up.

Other Thoughts: It doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles, but a lot of higher end motherboards are just marketing unnecessary features that I'll likely never use anyways.

G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3000 (PC4-24000) Memory Kit Model F4-3000C15Q-16GRBB
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It's a relative bargain for 3000 mhz ddr4. So far xmp seems stable and has passed all stress tests, as in my opinion it should. It looks pretty cool. Also, memory this fast + samsung ssd rapid mode = some insanely fast speeds.

Cons: Price. Also, I wish more color options were available at this speed and price. White or silver would be interesting.

Other Thoughts: G.Skill seems to have taken over the enthusiast memory sector.
