4 out of 5 eggsOverall good

Pros: Quiet, cooled well, easy to install

Cons: After two years of running almost constantly the pump died. Ran low on water quickly.

Other Thoughts: Wish I could find a replacement pump.

2 out of 5 eggsDiscontinued!

Pros: it was a good concept and when it came out you couldn't get anything like it for anything close to its price.
Quiet, stable temps for both the GPU and CPU.

Cons: After 2 years I have had 2 pumps fail. The second time I pursued a warranty I was told by Kingwin they have discontinued the product due to too many problems!

Other Thoughts: Kingwin support was pretty cool about it, they gave me their new product line (the "Gladiator") in exchange no charge. Unfortunately their new product is completely different and doesn't offer the same benefits that I based my whole decision on the AS300 purchase.

4 out of 5 eggsJust passed one year and going strong

Pros: Works pretty well, overall nice and quiet, keeps temps within reasonable ranges on an Athlon 64 3800+ and two GeForce 7600s.

Cons: The loud beep is really annoying when I start up my computer.

Other Thoughts: I do use one of the fancy coolants that claims to have lubricating properties that helps preserve pump life, so that may have something to do with it. I did notice temperatures going up at about 6 months in, but I think that's more related to the fact that the dorm I moved into at about that point has absolutely nowhere good to put the thing, so heat kind of builds up. Had to get some exhaust fans to pull the hot air out of the case since I mounted it internally.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Product

Pros: Very Easy to install, easy to maintain, no leakage. Works as internal unit or external. Fan is quiet.

Cons: I had to move outside, was not keeping any cooler than my air cooling, with 5 fans. One outside the case, the tmp dropped by 15C. No issues with leakage, no problems switching from internal to external. Have to have the fan all the way up to keep cool, is pretty quiet, however. Have to refill the res about every 30-60 days, depending on temp. Noise sensor and temp sensor are junk, I installed a monitoring program. Front display always flashes that need to add more coolant, even when full.

Other Thoughts: Good system, especially for the money. No major issues, just would have liked to see more of the bells and whistles perform as advertised.

4 out of 5 eggsNeat my first review

Pros: Ok where to start? This is a very good product. It cools well(this could be due to me using an additional radiator). I really like the multi color display, and that i can choose what color. The product was well built and fairly easy to install.

Cons: The sound measuring device is very sensitive and far off from the truth.

Other Thoughts: While it was easy to install i did have a problem fitting it in my case, which was easily solved by bending the rails in my case down. This is most likley only my case.

5 out of 5 eggsResearch Is Key

Pros: This is an outstanding consolidated package with great cooling ability, and fantastic for the potential overclocking Gurus. System runs fantastic and cool at all times with a low demand operation of about 40C. Under game loads (BF2142, FEAR, AA) it runs about 10C hotter. The system is very quiet, except for the sound of moving water.

Cons: The fluid provided was not used, I received good advice Radiator Fluid (5:1 Water/Fluid Ratio) works best. The display does not store user settings and has to be adjusted again, minor issue. Takes up two drive 5" Drive Bays so have the room, but can be stand alone externally. My system loses water, but I assume it is through evaporation since there is no indication of moisture anywhere in my system case

Other Thoughts: Utilize radiator fluid it has additives to prevent microbial growth which will cause clogging of the lines and pump failure. I check my setup monthly and refill the reservoir and ensure the fittings are secure and no water is leaking. The system is sound and functional for over 6 months. Do not let the people who rate this poor persuade you otherwise. The system works beautifully and the sound of silence is golden.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome cooler

Pros: Keeps my cpu at 26 degrees, 34 at load, extremely easy to set up. people that are having problems with leaks obviously didn't put it together right, great performance, low cost, its win/win.

Cons: none

2 out of 5 eggsCould have been wores

Pros: Every thing in 2 5 1/2 drive bays has all the nifty things you would want in a water cooling system... all in those 2 bays kept CPU around 35 c with mild O.C.

Cons: tubing is a bit on the small side, as is every thing else small pump rez. water blocks could have had a much better flow pattern but most systems that are comparable also share that short coming after about 6 months rez started leaking and it had to go

Other Thoughts: over all i guess this system just reinforced the old saying you get what you pay for. i see it as a good learning exp. but if you want easy setup it works or your looking to get your first watercooling set up its not that bad i gave it a poor well because i think i should have lasted longer with out leaking but i might have overtighen the water filler but thats part of a bad set up metal into plastic.....

5 out of 5 eggsDescent Cooler for $1xx

Pros: Runs good, the resivoiur is large enough it doesn't need filling often. The unit is descently quiet, it runs at about 30DBa which is not loud at all. The unit itself is pretty low maitnence once you install it. Cooling is very solid, right now my CPU thermometer reads 35.6C. Previously it was 78C. Keeps my chipset cool, I just used the GPU block for the cooling, not much work to do there. The knob for the fan speed is nice because you can just turn it to a low setting when idle. The LCD works very well and is pretty useful for its small size. Newegg shipped it very quickly, it came a day early.

Cons: This unit will not readily support the XFX 6800XT AGP. It can support it, but it is not excatly following the instructions. The main connector with the power and everything that plugs directly into the unit itself had to be cut because it hit the motherboard. For some strange reason the thermometer will read HI or LO instead of the Celsius reading. Also there is no memory that will last on this unit so if you like to set your target temperature, this can get annoying. Uses up two CD drives if you mount it internally so if you have two CD drives already it can be a pain in the rear to refill.

Other Thoughts: It may seem like the cons are overwhelming at first but overall, this unit deserves a 5/5. It will bring down your temperatures significantly for a low cost. READ THE INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE INSTALLATION AND DURING INSTALLATION!!! I can not stress this enough, at first I was missing a water casket and I thought the unit was broken so I had to redo the entire installation. I was lucky that it didn't cost me my computer. The instructions are easy to understand, and they have plenty of pictures to give a good looking instruction manual. I would recommend this unit to anyone that wants to solve an overheating problem or get a quieter solution for your cooling. Its a very solid product and well worth the money.

4 out of 5 eggsNot bad for the price

Pros: Effectively dropped my processor's temp by 5-10 degrees Celsius (although what I really needed in the end was a case with better air flow). Groovy front display lights.

Cons: Blue light in the front display conked out after about 1 year, leaving only 3 colors. Had to rip off the sticker on top to fit it into my new case. Cable plug in rear sticks out over my motherboard.

Other Thoughts: I've owned this unit for two years and the only thing that's broken is the front panel light, if reliability is your main concern.
