This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H105 Extreme Performance 240mm Liquid CPU Cooler, CW-9060016-WW
Pros: Supposed to be a great water cooler for overclocking.
Cons: Doesn't work with Corsair Carbide Series 500R, Item#: N82E16811139009. Won't mount properly. VERY, VERY LOUD fans!!
Other Thoughts: Don't get the H105 if you are thinking you can mount it in the 500R and overclock with it. It won't mount properly, and the fans are SO LOUD they are unbearable. Look at the Item#: 9SIA0AJ2KG0923, Noctua NH-D14 SE2011 instead. It is VERY QUIET and cools BETTER than the H105. The H105 is overrated, IMOREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great case, as long as you don't plan on cooling it with the Corsair H105. I switched to the Noctua cooler and now am very happy with the case, and have it FULLY LOADED to the max with hard drives and an overclocked i7-3770K, 4400 MHz (44 x 100) running at a cool 20'C ambient idle temp. You can mount Noctua fans on the inside hard drive cage with the provided threaded holes and draw more cool air over your PCH southbridge and GPU fans as well, which brings the temps down far into the safe overclocking range of temps.
Cons: Don't buy this case if you plan on using it with the CORSAIR Hydro Series H105. It WON'T fit properly, and force you to mount the radiator in such a way that it doesn't make direct contact with the H105 cooling fans. Also, the H105 fans had to be mounted with the case mount between the fans and the radiator and were VERY, VERY LOUD! Had to remove the H105 and go with the Noctua NH-D14 SE2011, which is VERY, VERY QUIET and cools much better than the H105.
Other Thoughts: Doen'st work with the Corsair H105 as advertised. Works great with the Noctua cooling system once you place an extra fan in the top for drawing hot air up through the top and at least one extra Noctua on the inside hard drive cage to draw cool air in over the southbridge of the motherboard. Noctua system is super quiet and cools much better than the Corsair H105. Item#: 9SIA0AJ2KG0923READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Samsung HW-H450 Wireless Audio Sound Bar
Pros: Wireless Subwoofer
Broad sound spectrum
Digital SPDIF input
Harmony Remote 650 controls it perfectly
Compact sound bar puts out plenty of sound and fits under or directly in front of your TV, or mounts on wall with supplied mounts.
Subwoofer plenty ample for large bedroom 20x20
Simple simple simple to set up and configure.
Cons: Not 5.1, but it really makes up for it.
Other Thoughts: You are paying more here for the wireless subwoofer, but it does work straight OOB.READ FULL REVIEW
