Antec KUHLER H2O 650 Water/Liquid CPU Cooler 120MM
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs doesn't work 10/05/2014

This review is from: Antec KUHLER H2O 650 Water/Liquid CPU Cooler 120MM

Pros: The light's kind of cool.

Cons: Horrible. I thought this was an upgrade. Computer overheats and hangs. Often, when I come home, I see the red light glowing and the computer is non-responsive. After I hit the reset button and reboot, I see the CPU temp at 70+C. The chassis temp at ~30C.
If I do anything at all on the computer, the CPU temp goes to 60's and sometimes 70's C within seconds. I can see it go up a degree every second or so. This is with the CPU at ~20%. Just turning on the Media Center or video streaming does it. 120mm fans screaming it 2700 RPM.
I have it set up with dual fans (push/pull) and the air coming out is barely warm, only at the bottom. I am convinced there is little coolant in the system or it's blocked. I didn't think I needed to fill this before use.

Other Thoughts: Mail in rebate makes returning impossible.
I'm running Vishera 8 core and it does run hot, the whole point of liquid cooling.

HP Compaq DC7700 Desktop PC Core 2 Duo 1.86 Ghz 2GB DDR2 80GB HDD Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It works, for the price of the OS.

Cons: As mentioned in other recent reviews, these no longer come with discrete video cards nor OS discs.
The case is scratched up.
The inside was filthy. When cleaning with compressed air, there were dust balls flying all over.
Came with two 512MB and one 1GB DDR2 sticks. What dual channel?
HDD is loud, especially since this is a "desktop" meant to sit horizontally on the desk, not a tower.
The on-board graphics is VGA only.
Took all day to update the OS.

Other Thoughts: Comes with a "Windows XP" sign prominently displayed under the media drive.
Added:
-cheap low profile video card to get digital display
-2nd HDD, 80GB, really? I knew this going in, but. . .
-wifi adapter
-DVD-RW
Comes with a 64bit OS, given the minimal specs, 32bit would have been more appropriate.
All in all, you get a functional PC for cheap, but the original spec would be much more desirable.
