This review is from: CORSAIR CXM series CX750M 750W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Corsair CP-9020061-NA Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready
Pros: It is a very sleek PSU, with its nice cords and its own overall look in a windowed case. It also works flawlessly for my current period of ownership (about 6 months).
Cons: Here is why I dislike this PSU, I first bought mine at Best Buy, and I exchanged it two days after installing it. Why? it makes a high pitched sound whenever you do simple things, like moving the mouse or typing (this sound is called Coil noise). I exchanged it just to get another PSU that also had Coil noise. I feel that if I submit a ticket to Corsair Force, I will just get another Coil noise making PSU. This sound is louder than all of my other 6 case fans when they are set to low. After about 10 minutes of this I become very annoyed. I am at sort of a loss here, my $100 has been spent, and I have a PSU making coil noise. At least it works though :]
Other Thoughts: I feel that this PSU would be perfect, if they could just make the Coil noise stop.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H80i High Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 120mm
Cons: Where do I start? It is worse than the stock cooler. My AMD Athlon X4 II was at 80 degrees C at about 30% of its maximum utilization. the box cooler would of had it at 70 degrees C. The liquid bearing tubes would not carry liquid through them because of how severely I had to bend them just to have the Corsair logo straight. So, now just to make it work, I had to put it upside down. And the software is not the best either, it seems to only have been geared to the loop itself. it displayed my CPU temp at 3.0 degrees C, making the LED temperature sensor useless for actually telling temperature.
Other Thoughts: I do believe, however that the one simple fix to all of the problems above (talking about the loop itself) is just a little more thermal paste. I have bought more, and I hope for it to work better... UPSIDE DOWN.READ FULL REVIEW
