ZALMAN LQ-310 Water/Liquid CPU Cooler 120MM
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

3 out of 5 eggs Good cooling, terrible instructions. read below for CM hyper 212 evo comparison 04/10/2013

This review is from: ZALMAN LQ-310 Water/Liquid CPU Cooler 120MM

Pros: -Does a good job cooling. Could find zero reviews about this cooler on the internet.

-On my system (3570k at 4.5ghz), dropped the temps about 3-5C compared to an Hyper 212 Evo (push/pull config)

-Quieter than the evo with two fans running, takes up WAY less space

Cons: --Huge con. The instructions are terrible. Read them 15 times before you even attempt. Parts interlock that the instructions do not say anything about interlocking ( two mounting rings on the pump). This thing was a beast to put on, took me 1 1/2 hours at least.

NZXT Sentry-2 5.25

2 out of 5 eggs I wish this thing worked =/ 03/08/2013

This review is from: NZXT Sentry-2 5.25" Touch Screen Fan Controller

Pros: Thing looks great. It adds something cool to the front of your case. It worked as intended. Monitored temps fine.

Cons: Huge con for me. Using with three Antec TriCools, made them buzz. Buzzing was loud and annoying and I couldn't handle it. Also who knows if this would decrease the length of life for my fans, so I couldn't keep it. I read a ton of reviews on it and they all mentioned the controller making fans buzz.

Other Thoughts: I wish this worked. It was cheap, looked cool and did what it was supposed to do. But the buzzing T_T

BIOSTAR TZ77B LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Awesome board. Works like a charm. Running a 3570k overclocked to 4.5ghz no problems. I really am surprised with the quality of the board and how well it works. Well worth double the price for the features and quality.

Cons: Only con is that with my mouse in the UEFI bios it doesn't work. I could update the BIOs to get the mouse to work, but it's probably not worth the risk. The keyboard works fine.
