Corsair Hydro Series H110i GT High Performance Water / Liquid CPU Cooler

5 out of 5 eggs Great Product: Corsair Hydro Series H110i GT High Performance Water / Liquid CPU Cooler 03/19/2016

This review is from: Corsair Hydro Series H110i GT High Performance Water / Liquid CPU Cooler

Pros: Nice cool temps.
Creates a clutter free look in the CPU area of the board as opposed to air cooling.
Keeps temps well below anything that air cooling can offer.
Link software is okay and essential if your wanting to color configure your L.E.D. logo lighting on the pump head.
Pump is quiet.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Been using Corsair cases, closed loop liquid coolers, and DVD drives for as long as I've been custom building computers for myself and clients and I personally cannot complain ... much.
However, this cooler will not fit flush to the top of the Corsair 650D case. The reason? The bottom of the housing for the hot-swappable SATA3 dock (external) prevents the radiator tank from being flush with the top of the case. Therefore, it must be mounted at an angle of about 5% toward the front of the case. It doesn't take away from the aesthetics since the windowed side panel covers it, and it works every bit as good as it would if it were flush.

Pros: It's G.Skill. It works!
Nice medium speed modules
G.Skill heatsink color variations allow for excellent build themes.
Most G.Skill sets arrive with sequential serial numbers = match
If a module goes sour send it back you'll get a new one ... anytime!

Cons: No cons. Excellently crafted memory modules. Economically priced.

Other Thoughts: Been building custom machines, my own and client based, with G.Skill modules exclusively for the last 10 years and have never had a bad module. That's not to say that the consumer can throw caution to the wind and buy just any memory stick to stick in the machine. You need to actually check to see that the particular module(s) are compatible with your motherboard and processor setup.

SAMSUNG 840 EVO 2.5
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs SAMSUNG 840 EVO 2.5" 1TB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-7TE1T0BW 10/09/2015

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO 2.5" 1TB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-7TE1T0BW

Pros: Nice, fast drive. Not the newest Samsung 1Tb SSD but it is still plenty fast.
Samsung Magician optimization software (read/writes get better).
No moving parts.

Cons: The current advertised price ... whew! ... $695.00 that's steep considering the newer model 1Tb (850 Evo) is only $344.06 currently, and the 850 PRO 1Tb SSD is only $469.99 currently. So, why the premium on this drive newegg?

Other Thoughts: Don't recall buying the drive here (Newegg) so maybe no green check for verified owner. I bought this long over a year ago, maybe two years ago to come into the SSD world from mechanical drives section. I really like this SSD and will stay with it until it falters.
