GeIL EVO CORSA Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model GOC316GB1600C9DC
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: - Great price for 16 GB of RAM.
- Excellent Timing at 9-9-9-28.
- Heatsinks on the RAM Sticks.

Cons: - Color of the heatsinks on the RAM sticks.
- Not low profile.

Other Thoughts: I purchased these RAM sticks when the RAM prices were still low back in June 2012. I picked the GeIL EVO CORSA Series 16GB for $104.99.

It may get in the way of your first or second RAM slot on your motherboard with the installation CPU heatsink cooler such as Enermax ETS-T40-TB and Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO. With a liquid cooler, no problems with clearance from the waterblock.

CORSAIR Hydro Series H50 Quiet Edition Water / Liquid CPU Cooler. 120mm

5 out of 5 eggs Terrific GPU Cooler 11/25/2014

This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H50 Quiet Edition Water / Liquid CPU Cooler. 120mm

Pros: - Great for newcomers to liquid coolers.
- Replaces Intel & AMD stock fans.
- Decent size for mid-ATX cases.
- Excellent cooling performance.
- Easy installation.

Cons: - The pump developed some noise over time, but not a big deal.
- More length and flexible in the hoses.

For some reason when I had the radiator at a vertical position, it would make loud noises. Yet when I place the radiator with a horizontal position at the base of my CM Storm Stryker, I do not run into the noise problem with the pump.

Other Thoughts: I originally use the Corsair H50 on my i5-3750k for the duration of 6 six months and wanted to cool down my GPU on my Evga GTX 760 SC 2 GB with the assistance of the NZXT Kraken G10.

It is a proficient water cooler to start off with for quiet system load. I recommend a push-pull setup on the radiator for better airflow and results.
