I've been immensely satisfied with this monitor. I'm not looking for a higher-end panel with a comparable refresh rate, higher resolution (1440p) and IPS panel type, and I've found what I'm looking for. That said, when I purchase the new screen I definitely plan on keeping this one as a peripheral. Being able to swivel it will allow me to extend the longetivity of this monitor in my house because I'll use it for coding or something.
Cons: That magnetic little controller you can slap on the side to change presets is annoying. I don't use it.
The menu is a little awkward to navigate at times. I have a 3-monitor setup and I've noticed that the bezels from side monitors will sometimes highlight the touch screen buttons on this. Not a big deal at all, but occasionally I'll have to re-position a monitor to resolve this.
These issues are so small and infrequent I honestly can't complain.
Other Thoughts: I've been using this for 3 years and plan on using it for years to come. Best monitor I've used thus far.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Thermaltake CLW0217 Water 2.0 Extreme/All-In-One Liquid Cooling System
Pros: Using to cool my i7-3770k which is at 4.6Ghz. Temps never get out of hand and I've been running the CPU for 3 years now, so the heat hasn't destroyed it. Temps under load are usually in the 60C-80C range, and under max Prime95 testing I don't believe I ever saw temps above ~85C
Cons: I'd like to have better cooling performance, but I believe I got what I paid for. I also made sure to replace the cheap fans that come with this model with some Corsair quiet SP120 fans in order to cut down on the noise a bit.
Other Thoughts: Overall I've been very satisfied with this product and would purchase it again. It won't knock your socks off, but it does its job and it does it well for a very affordable price.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Overclocks like a beast. Very stable at 4.6 GHz right now. Overall this is the fastest CPU I've evern owned.
Cons: None that I've seen in my 3 years of ownership. Decent price for what you're getting, I've had it for awhile and it still performs very well with demanding tasks, and no problems I've seen.READ FULL REVIEW
