CORSAIR Hydro Series H80i High Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 120mm
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: So far so good with the H80i. I got a FX-8320 to go with this and have it OC'd and stable @ 4.5ghz/1.36v. Idle temps are usually around 28-30C and peak when stress testing was around 54-59C. All in all a pretty solid cooling system as long as you apply thermal compound properly.

Cons: Only couple of minor cons i have, is the size of the radiator and fan noise. When running low RPMs the fans are pretty quiet but when stress testing of course they kicked it into overdrive after i got my custom curve set up the way i wanted it. they are pretty loud. they are actually noisier then the 2x 230mm fans on my case. the size of the radiator and the fans combined made me do a bit of jury rigging with my case, but i did get it to fit with almost no modification or removal of anything from the case.

Other Thoughts: Ultimately its a pretty solid cooling system. I've already recommended it to a couple of buddies.

Pros: Love this drive, wish i would have switched to an SSD sooner. Unbelievably fast when you switch from a normal HDD. I think thats about all that can be said XD

Cons: None yet.

AZZA Solano 1000 Black Japanese SECC Steel/Metal mesh in front MicroATX/ATX/Full ATX Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Overall a pretty decent and nice looking case. plenty of air flow and just about enough room for all my cables. I did not even bother trying to stuff anything behind the mobo tray as i need just about every last cable from my PSU. It is capable of water cooling *see cons*. All in all a pretty solid case.

Cons: About my 1 and only con is that it took a bit of jury rigging to get my H80I mounted in this case. I wont go into extreme detail what it took, but it wasn't fun. ultimately you have to put one fan on the exterior of the case to be able to mount it and keep the side fan on. you also have to unmount the switch and partially flatten the beveled mesh on the back. Other then that the only other thing i could think of is the space was just barely enough, took a bit of squeezing to get some things in but i was able to get everything hooked up with no issues (aside from the H80I of course).

Other Thoughts: Build.
