Pros: this card is blazing fast, ordered 2 for SLI, saldy 1 made my screen pixelated then went black on me.. not docing a star cuz stuff happens, RMA in progress... been running my second card solo and it is a beast, benchmarked with AVP D3D11 at avg FPS of 83.6! was running at 1920 x 1080. will update once RMA card get here for SLI. fans are really quiet, unless you put them at 100% then they scream, but i do not see a reason to put them at max. i keep the fan on auto from gpu tweek and it never gets above 1300rpm "not audible at all" of the rated 4400rpm. my card hits about 55C under gaming load, could be cooler if i allowed the fans to rev higher, but i like the quiet. card freq was 1241MHz stock out of the box 104MHZ higher than the 1137MHz that it is suppose to come with and i have not ever overclocked it yet! just shows they do cherry pick "top" gpu's.
Cons: no real cons, one failed on me after 2 hours so i am using one right night, wish i had the second for SLI..
Other Thoughts: dont bother getting a 680 card unless you running multiple monitors at high res, me running these two in SLI will be fine and maybe overkill for most games for anyone running 1 monitor at 1920x1080..READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H100 (CWCH100) Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
Pros: keeps my ivy 3770k "not overclocked ATM" at about 26C at idle 2 79F abient and under gaming load have not seen the cpu go above 33C, easy install, just make sure not to use the lga 2011 screws on an 1155 socket, instructions pictures do not detail screws that well
Cons: the tube are very ridged making it limiting on how you can set up the radiator and waterblock. also as everyone else says it would be nice to be able to adjust fan speed from outside the case on the fly without having to take of your side panel. only way i think you can adjust it is buying the corsair link commander, but i do not feel the money is work it.. all this only docs 1 star IMO
Other Thoughts: decently quiet at low and med settings, get a little loud at high fan speeds but that's hard to avoid when you are blowing air through radiator finsREAD FULL REVIEW
