DEEPCOOL Gamer Storm CAPTAIN 360 CPU Liquid Cooler AIO Water Cooling Ceramic Bearing Pump Visual Liquid Flow with 3*120mm FDB PWM Fan Rubber Coating Deep Silent Support LGA 2011-v3
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Recently just received a new unit this week, finally found the time to install it. After all of the troubles Ive been going through, I finally get to test this radiator. Mind you, this is the 3rd, so its not going to get more than 3 eggs off of me.

I went from a Coolermaster N520 to this Captain 360, and I can honestly say this is amazing me. I didnt think I would drop an additional 8c in temps. I averaged 32c with the air cooled unit, now Im down about 24 average. I never topped out more than 60c in Prime95 with a 4.5ghz overclock on an Intel 4770k.

Your mileage may vary, I have mine set up in a unique manner. Ive used the other radiator fans from the last defective unit, and did a little shopping at home depot for some longer screws. I managed to get 6 fans on the radiator instead of the 3 it comes with, so I have a lot more cooling power than this kit comes with. As of now, I have 9 fans + closed loop cooling my system. I didnt think another 8-10c degree drop would be possible without a refrigerator...I was wrong.

Cons: This was my 3rd attempt to rate DeepCool Captain products. The first pump leaked, and the second unit had a warped radiator. Patience is not my strong point, but I will say that aside from the defective parts, this is a very cool unit. But the simple fact that it took this long to get a working model bums me out. Deep Cool is now 1 for 4 with me.

Other Thoughts: All of the other units Ive received had air bubbles inside the pump. This one doesnt. The glass viewing tube is nice, I will still say I think its a bad idea.

Pros: Please read my previous review.

Cons: Upon further inspection on my unit, the radiator was built defective. The radiator itself looks like its been buckled lengthwise, throwing the post holes off by about 1/4 of an inch. None of the fans that come with this unit fit at all, and none of the post holes line up with my case due to this defect. Will definitely get a hold of their customer service dept...again.

Other Thoughts: There were also air bubbles inside this unit, however it did not leak. There should be absolutely no air bubbles whatsoever, since this causes cavitation. Cavitation is essentially a buildup of smaller air bubbles like foam, preventing the liquid from fully contacting the heat exchanger.

THRUSTMASTER 2960720 Hotas Warthog Joystick
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Best stick Ive ever owned 12/24/2014

This review is from: THRUSTMASTER 2960720 Hotas Warthog Joystick

Pros: Ive had this stick for almost 3 years now with nary a complaint. Its accurate, rugged, and can keep up with the best out there. Ive used mine for hours on end playing every single DCS module, including the UH-1H, Ka-50, F-15...and it feels so natural to use.

Modding this stick is easy. Ive mine on a piece of galvanized pipe mounted to the floor on top of a 1 1/4 inch flange, which helps make it feel naturally like an actual aircraft stick. I cant fly it in any other way. No way am I going back to Saitek, their stuff feels too flimsy and breaks too easily for me.

Cons: The TARGET software seems like its too much of a hassle to learn to me. This is the only thing Ive to gripe about with this stick...Saiteks SST software was easy to set up. If it were any easier, this would be hands down the best stick on the market today. My other gripe would be the pinky switch on the left hand throttle. It gets gummed up pretty easily. Its a 3 pole switch anyways, so replacing it is just as easy as heading down to a local electronics store and picking one out of their parts bin for 5 dollars.

Other Thoughts: Its well worth the investment.
