Pros: 40 PCI Lanes
Doesnt make breakfast
Other Thoughts: * I would recommend an AIO or custom water loop for one of these, someone who buys an intel X CPU is going to overclock it. I mainly bought this for the 40 PCI lanes, but the extra threads have also come in useful.
if the price of this chip is "too high" keep in mind that it is the top of the line Enthusiast chip, its price is for the most part earned. That being said I did in fact pick mine up at a B&M shop in my town for a lesser price than I see Online.
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.
