This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H105 Extreme Performance 240mm Liquid CPU Cooler, CW-9060016-WW
Pros: + Relatively easy to install
+ Pump and fans are pretty quiet, much quieter than equivalent performance air cooler
+ Adequate pre-installed thermal paste
Cons: - Awful ugly light-up CORSAIR logo needs to be covered up or modded
- Logo/text looks even worse if you mount the block "sideways" or "upside down"
Other Thoughts: Come on, CORSAIR, the light up text on your logo looks horrible. Couldn't you just give me a sticker instead?
It's sort of hard to tell if you are torquing down the thumbscrews equally, or to the correct tightness, have to do it by feel. Be patient and careful when tightening.
Pros: + Meets its rated specifications, what more can I say?
Cons: - Expensive (but pretty great)
Other Thoughts: Running a pair of these in Intel Z170 chipset RAID0 as boot drive. Out of this world performance.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Thermaltake Toughpower Grand 850W SLI/CrossFire Ready ATX 12V V2.3 / EPS 12V 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified 7 Year Warranty Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply Haswell Ready PS-TPG-850FPCPUS-P
Pros: + 80 PLUS PLATINUM - may I suggest you *only* buy power supplies with this rating
+ Fully modular, plenty of cables included and the standard little bag to keep them in
+ Cool and quiet
Cons: - Would be nice if they included a couple of shorter cables and/or cables with fewer connectors, but I guess if I care that much I can hack up the cables myself since plenty are included.
Other Thoughts: Not shown in the pictures, but there are little rubber molded thingies that you stick on the curved corners, so there won't be a gap between the power supply and the case. It's weird, but works fine. Maybe also provides some vibration dampening?READ FULL REVIEW
