DEEPCOOL Gamer Storm CAPTAIN 240 CPU Liquid Cooler AIO Water Cooling Ceramic Bearing Pump Visual Liquid Flow with Dual120mm FDB PWM Fan Rubber Coating Deep Silent Support LGA 2011-v3
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: The fans. Definitely not worth the aggravation Im going through right now though...

Cons: The pump leaked out of the box. Ive submitted this through an RMA, which so far has taken about 2 weeks of aggravation with DHL trying to ship this out to China.

Between running around town like a chicken with my head cut off, and communicating with Deep Cool RMA, Im ready to trash this thing rather than replace it. They are willing to pay for the shipping, but seem unwilling just to email you a shipping and customs label for the return. After running around between 4 different DHL offices, running to the library to print the shipping label, and then being turned away for not having a customs label, Im just ready to throw this thing in the trash and be forever done with this.

Other Thoughts: Just so someone really thinks about all of this added aggravation and if it is really worth it, Id like to make a small point that the beginner really should know. Everyone who says that this thing drops the temps down 20c or better, are really referring to the stock cooler. Almost nobody has a stock cooler anymore. Every single air cooler has performed just as well as any other liquid cooler Ive owned throughout the years (and Ive had plenty of both). The only way its going to be better than air cooled is if the radiator is refrigerated.

DEEPCOOL Gamer Storm CAPTAIN 240 CPU Liquid Cooler AIO Water Cooling Ceramic Bearing Pump Visual Liquid Flow with Dual120mm FDB PWM Fan Rubber Coating Deep Silent Support LGA 2011-v3
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: The fans are high quality, I will give it that. Testing them right now, they are about as quiet as my noctua fans of the same size. Deserves the two eggs I give it. Other than that...

Cons: The pump leaked straight out of the box. I have red dye and liquid all over the fans, and I noticed exactly where the leak was while I was installing the radiator. The glass tube has a weak spot inside the pump. Nothing is damaged outside of the pump, but quite obviously the seal is broken between the viewing tube and the pump. Cant say I wasnt expecting this, but I was seriously anxious to try this one out. Sorry guys, but DeepCool is now 0 for 2 with me.

Other Thoughts: I knew the glass tube was going to be a serious issue...if you do receive this product, do a leak test on this first like I did. Examine this for fluid leaks or look for evidence of red dye in the package. There should be no hint of bubbles in the glass viewing tube as well. I really wish this one wouldnt have failed on me, I was seriously looking forward to this one.

SteelSeries Siberia Elite Prism Jet Black Gaming Circumaural Headset
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

1 out of 5 eggs A big let down 10/23/2014

This review is from: SteelSeries Siberia Elite Prism Jet Black Gaming Circumaural Headset

Pros: Pretty comfortable. Memory foam makes them comfortable around the ears with my glasses on, so they dont crush into my skin. Lots of pretty colors...

7.1 surround sound capable, they sound pretty good listening to music. A lot of adjustable levels to make the mic clear, and a digital equalizer comes with the software.

Cons: About the only thing not adjustable with these headsets are the volume. Im not exactly sure, but I daresay they dont exceed 80db when it comes to noise levels. My noise cancelling Phiaton earbuds that cost half as much cranks out a lot more noise and sound just as good as these, plus come with noise cancellation filters.

If you are deaf, move on. If you are hard of hearing like I am, move on. If you like your explosions muted, your music cranked down, and just want to read a good book, then by all means get these.

Other Thoughts: Steelseries takes hearing safety a little bit too much. If you want these headphones for watching movies, watch Driving Miss Daisy instead. You will be sorely disappointed if you are watching Saving Private Ryan.

Although I cant ding Steelseries too hard, I got these headphones as an RMA replacement for my broken SteelSeries H Wireless headphones. Let me say that again - I got these headphones from an RMA replacement for my SteelSeries H Wireless headphones...those shiny 300 dollar headphones that they couldnt replace. They also sent me a 9H series as a replacement before they sent me these things...which were also disappointing in performance. Im just seriously glad Im not paying for this stuff. Sorry guys, Ill stick with the cheap stuff that I can actually hear, with companies that actually replace their products with the actual products and not lesser equipment.
