This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H55 CW-9060010-WW/RF Quiet CPU Coolers Manufactured Recertified
Pros: Great thermal transfer, doesn't seem to be overwhelmed with my 3770K. Temperatures are a little bit lower than my previous cooler, the 212 EVO. Got this for an awesome price so it's hard to go wrong
Cons: Fan that comes with it runs at 100% all of the time, does not support PWM and I don't have a fan controller. At that speed the fan makes noticeable noise and when all other fans in the case support PWM - the increased noise level is both clear and highly annoying. I ordered a replacement fan and that'll fix the issue. Radiator is a bit larger than a 120mm fan making this difficult to fit into my case anywhere.
Other Thoughts: Great cooler for the money, so far. Beats other air cooling solutions I've tried. Doesn't leak or have any issues thusfar, so no complaints on build quality. Make sure your planned mounting location has additional space on all sides to account for the radiator size.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works great! Could have stood for a little more click so I should have got a different switch but that's not a minus to the keyboard itself. The build feels very solid (it's surprisingly heavy, no way it'll slide around on you) and I have had no problems with it. NKRO when connected via PS/2 is great. The status LEDs are very easy to see. Comes with some extra keycaps too.
Cons: Like others have stated in reviews - my fingers seem to be wearing the lettering off some of the keys already and I don't game for as many hours a day as I used to.
Other Thoughts: This is a great starter mechanical keyboard and if you don't need the ten keys on the side this is a great choice. It's not perfect but it's nothing that some improved keycaps couldn't fix. If you have doubts about this being a good first mechanical keyboard it's safe to lay them to rest.READ FULL REVIEW
