Cooler Master Nepton 120XL - CPU Water Cooling System, All-In-One Kit with 120mm Radiator and 2 Silencio Fans
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Great temps for a 120. 25c idle. We will see what happens this summer.

Dual silencio fans. I like the rubber seals that come with it as well. I've heard bad things about the gaps in the 280L.

SUPER QUIET. Getting one for my 295x2 rad.

Cons: Tubing was a bit long if you are mounting to the back, but not a huge deal.

Temps were high when I had the rad set up wrong. *See below.

Other Thoughts: I didn't actually believe these fans would be quiet. But they are! I've had some other fans by cooler master, and of course the stock 120s in my Storm Stryker, and I am already planning to add some more silencios to my case.

One thing to note! I thought you could position an AIO cooler anyway. When I first installed I have the tube side up on the back wall of my case. Idle temps were 60s! I unscrewed and moved it around a bit, and I heard the bubbles rushing, then quiet down, and the temps instantly dropped to mid 20s. Not sure, but I wish the instructions would have said something. All is good now.

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Was less than the cost of 2 290x singles.
Kills everything I throw at it. (1080p single screen)
Quiet thanks to watercooling setup.

Cons: Heats up a small room real quick.
The card will shut one core off to save power, but the screen flickers a bit when this happens.

Other Thoughts: I did not need this card by any means. I but it works great, looks cool. Will last me a very long time.

The power draw and heat are the only things that make me think of going to a single 970 or something.

ASUS GeForce GTX 970 STRIX-GTX970-DC2OC-4GD5 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready SLI Support G-SYNC Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Not sure what to say. Quiet. Super fast. Comes with a back plate.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Upgraded from a busted HD 7850. I'm only gaming at 1080p, so I haven't seen any of the issues everyone is freaking out about.
