This review is from: Corsair Hydro Series™ H80i V2 Water / Liquid CPU Cooler. 120mm CW-9060024-WW
Pros: Overall average temp drop in my PC has gone down 5 to 8 degrees with this cooling system.
All the hardware needed for install is included, and the holes and included hardware line up good.
Kind of cool lighting while running.
And the Corsair link software is handy to actually monitor temps of the interior of your PC.
Cons: The install manual is pretty basic, and I found I had to figure out a few things on my own.
The entire unit is bulky and stiff, and is a chore to install inside the case.
The biggest con to me however was the increase in noise levels from the fan system.
Other Thoughts: This was my first water cooling system, and overall it does a good job of dropping the temps inside the case. I was a bit disappointed in the increased fan noise, due to the fact that fans are directly mounted on the radiator verses just blowing out into empty air through the case vents. Don't get me wrong, the fan noise is NOT terrible, it is just increased and may not bother others.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS Z97-PRO GAMER LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Seems like a good MB for any PC system, and has plenty of options for expansion.
Cons: No cons.
Other Thoughts: This MB was used in building a new PC system for a client that runs a data/trade business out of his home. With the 3 PCi slots filled, he will be running up to 10 monitors. Though I am not going to be involved with installing the other video cards and connecting all the monitors, it appears that this MB should be able to handle the job based on what I have seen while building it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very very roomy inside!
Nice air flow design.
Nice cable management design.
Tooless install of SSD's and HDD's and Optical drives.
they are of poor design.
Other Thoughts: One of my customers needed a new PC to run several monitors at his home based business. He picked out all the components and this case was all a part of that choosing. It is an easy case to work with for the most part, and has great design in cable management, and airflow. Besides being a big cube, the only real con is the fans that come with this case, they are noisy!READ FULL REVIEW
