Pros: Cheap and it worked right out of the box.
Cons: When reading a disk this thing is so loud. Makes more noise then my 6 fans and watercooler do. But I will barely use it so not to big of an issue.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Easy Install, straight out of the box into the case and booted on the first try
Cons: Did not come with driver disk, but was able to get them from my laptop and transferred with a flash drive.
Other Thoughts: SATA connections are mounted sideways, couldn't find them at first.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H80i High Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 120mm
Pros: Thing cooler does exactly as advertised, it works well and keeps my temps consistently cool, haven't been able to get the cpu above 50 under heavy load.
Cons: The fans that ship with the cooler, are quiet until you hit about 1800 rpm then they produce I high pitched squeal. I will be replacing them with another set of corsair fans that are much quieter. The product didn't ship with the washers like so many others have said but it wasn't an issue in my case.
Other Thoughts: If Corsair shipped this with some higher quality/quieter fans it would easily get 5 eggs. I also want to mention that this thing takes up more space then you would expect. The radiator is sandwiched between two fans that push/pull air through, so it requires some room to be properly mounted, this was kind of an issue with my NZXT Phantom 410. I was unable to mount the radiator in the specified location for a radiator which was in the top of the case. I was however able to mount it on the back exhaust of the case. So no harm done.READ FULL REVIEW
