This review is from: AVG PC TuneUp 2014 - 3 PCs - Download
Pros: some cool utilities to help laptops with poor graphics adapters function better (recommends turning off certain windows features like aero for better performance). automates the process of cleaning out old system files, registry errors, disk defragmentation.
Cons: windows is actually quite good at doing all of the above (besides optimizing pcs with low end adapters). and most of its functions can be done by either FREE alternatives, Windows, OR THE USER.
Other Thoughts: Once Tuneup was bought by AVG it went downhill. or maybe that was just around the time I began learning much more about the windows operating system than I had before.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm
Pros: -Makes liquid cooling easy
-Can technically be used on a GPU as well (might be better since they actually benefit from liquid cooling more)
-Configurable LEDs (can be turned off too)
-pretty easy to mount in a compatible case (240mm rad)
Cons: the radiator is THIN, so there is not as much surface area as really required for beefy CPUs (IE FX 8 cores or any 2011-3 CPU)
Other Thoughts: something went wrong with mine, and Corsair Link was unable to find it anymore. which means, I cannot monitor the pump, I cannot change my LEDs (they are forever stuck on what profile I had last loaded), and I can no longer be sure it is 100% working. so it is running in a system I built for my brother that is NOT overclocked.
may still be worth buying, however the GTX version came out and it LOOKS much nicer. I have a H110i GT and the new look is fantastic.
Cons: -Fan does not turn on as soon as it seems it should.
Other Thoughts: I have had to RMA this unit TWICE since I bought it. once a few months after I bought it. and again just this week. COMPLETELY different systems. (amd 8 core/Intel 5960x).
I bought this so that in the future I would have a high wattage PSU that I could use for multiple GPUs. I recently acquired a second GTX 780 Ti. if I go up to about 95-106% power usage on both cards the PSU overheats and shuts off after about 35 minutes. THE FAN DOES NOT SPIN UP. I think this entire series of GPUs is defective NZXT should probably buy from a different OEM in the future.
