This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H75 CW-9060015-WW Water / Liquid CPU Cooler 120 MM
Cons: Instructions could be more specific about power connections. They say just plug the pump and fan connectors into any header on the board! Well that's just silly. I chose to plug the fans into the 4-pin CPU header so my m4a785TDV-EVO motherboard would use the temperature of the CPU to determine how fast the fans on the radiator should spin. My board had 3 pin Chassis and Power headers. The Chassis header fan speed is determined by motherboard temperatore, while it appears that Power header fan speed is full speed all the time. i plugged the pump into the Power header as I had read that the pump might perform best at full 12 volts. The board reports the pump is spinning at 1450RPM if that can be trusted. I have a Molex-to-3pin adapter coming that I may use just to be sure the pump gets 12v. Nothing on the Corsair site or docs give any details so this may all be a waste of time but I believe plugging the radiator fans into the CPU header was definitely the right way to go.
Other Thoughts: For $75 I do have some concerns about longevity and leaks but there is a 5 year warranty. I thought it was worth the gamble.
Took my Phenom II x4 955 from a jet engine at full speed to nice and civilzed inside my 10+ years old Lian Li case. I was often choosing to run it throttled down to keep the cooler fan quiet. I considered a giant passive heat sink but something bout that thing dangling off of a vertical board made my itch. Newer CPUs can best the performance and use less electicity but I like keeping old things going.
Pros: Good price, good warranty.
Cons: Need to use the warranty after 6 months.
Other Thoughts: A pair of drives in a CentOS 6.5 system running software raid. After 6 months one drive simply died...invisible to the system. Hope the warranty process isn't too painful.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Low price
Cons: Poor quality in low light.
Battery dies before the internal memory is even half-full.
Other Thoughts: Had it for two years, lost the charger. Bought a new charger a few months later. Found out the auto-focus was stuck/broken. Now it is a paperweight.READ FULL REVIEW
