Pros: Quality, Looks and Cooling Power. Made of Copper!
Cons: Large and hard to install without help, intel mounting solution for all except LGA2011 was garbage.
Other Thoughts: I bought my Eisberg 240L used for 125$. I've had it on LGA 775 (q9650 @ 4ghz) and on my LGA 2011 (3820 @ stock) it now resides on my LGA 1155 (2500k @ 4.5ghz) always kept my components cool, under 75c under load on my hot q9650.
I didn't like the mounting system ended up using a different backplate I had laying around with Phobya universal m4 cpu mounting kit. stock mounting seemed chincy.
I have read the horror stories about leaking coolers. I personally like to run the unit by itself ( have an old ANTEC psu with a jumper adapter to power it) for at least overnight to see if any leaks occur.
With my gerry rigged high pressure mounting system and 2 NZXT FX 120LB pushing through it my OC'ed 2500k @ 1.35 vcore never heats up past 60c using IntelBurnTest! Overall one of the best AIO coolers on the market.
However.... if your going to spend this kind of money on a AIO cooler you might as well get the EVGA Hadron Hydro Watercooler kit and build one yourself, it doesn't come with fans and you'll have to build and prime it. I assembled it out of the case and ran it for 24hr to test for leaks. If you have enough room for the Eisberg you'll only need a little more for the EVGA (pump was placed in the extra space in my cd/dvd drive bays) and the cooling performance was substantially better and the EVGA quality was superb.
All in all I probably would buy another Eisberg 240L if the price was right and I had enough in my budget for better fans and the better mounting kit. (FYI good price for me was 125$ for the pre-owned cooler and 37$ for 2 x high performance fans and the Phobya mounting kit.)
But if you talking new... your better off getting the EVGA and 2 good fans. With the quality and expand-ability of the EVGA you'll spend the same money and have the "Custom Water Cooler" bragging rights lol
Anyway that's my 2 cents.
This review is from: Intel Core I7 - 3820 - 3.6 Ghz - Socket 2011 - L3 Cache - 10 Mb
Other Thoughts: I have this thing on my ASUS Sabertooth X79 with 16GB of Corsair Vengeance and 2 x Sapphire HD 7950's in CrossfireX. Let me tell you this thing is more then capable for my 2 cards and multitasking.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Vantec 2.5" / 3.5" / 5.25" SATA / IDE to USB 2.0 Adapter - Model CB-ISATAU2
Pros: there are none
Cons: the unit arrived dead. The power cord and the USB adaptor are non functional. even with different power to my hard drive USB adapter would not work
Other Thoughts: if you're thinking about buying this don't it will cost you more than half of what you paid to ship it back for RMA. I will never be purchasing anything from Vantec againREAD FULL REVIEW
