This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm
Pros: The installation can be customizable in terms of removing the fans off of the radiator to accommodate spacing issues within your computer case. The fact it has USB to the CPU block and software to manage your motherboard hardware is top notch. I use it to statically assign RPMs for the fans on the radiator so they are quiet for my taste yet are still able to move a lot of air.
Cons: No Cons
Other Thoughts: Use software to manage the Corsair radiator fans. They will become VERY loud depending on how heavy your application usage is without the software.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The motherboard, when initially purchased, was great. Overlocked with no issue from 4.7ghz to 5.0ghz, memory clock speeds were great, whole nine. Physical installation was no hassle for me and software AI Suite worked as adverstised including the USB 3.0 Boost.
Cons: I am writing this review after a year of ownership.
After about 8 months of ownership or earlier this year (2015) I experienced what other users have made negative comments about onboard audio not working.
Side Note** I actually do not regularly use the onboard audio, I have an older PCI Creative Sound Blaster Card that still works; however, I wanted to try out the software 7.1 of the Realtek Audio device.
So after months of using this motherboard I eventually found out my audio ports did not work. Well, I was able to get an RMA with ASUS support but I never went through with the RMA because I really didn't care that much about using the onboard audio as well as being without a PC for a week or two.
Other things that maybe related, I noticed peripheral USB devices such as mice (Logitech, Corsair) and a Logitech Rumblepad controller would not power or or be detected when plugged in while the PC was on. Sometimes I would have to reboot the PC after initially powering it on the first time for the day so that the USB devices worked. So, after awhile I figured my motherboard was slowly dying but it still works to this day. My symptoms have been gone for awhile just thinking about it now but I wonder if it is a VOLTAGE problem perhaps relative a specific outlet in my apartment. Recently, I relocated my computer to work in another room for other reasons, and now that I happened to think about it right now, the issues have not reappeared. I suppose when I get home I can give the onboard audio one more try.
Pros: The grip material on the mouse, high quality cable material, LED lights to look pretty and the adjustable weight. I bought this mouse just from first site on Newegg and read the reviews. I never seen it before and instead of just stressing uncertainty I went with gut feeling. I had a Logitech GX518 that still works and the comparison to the Corsair model is that the Corsair is smaller and less bulkier. So, your fingers will have to adjust to to a lower finger rest on the mouse buttons compared to the Logitech which is higher. It may be awkward to adjust but as a gamer it was quick to adjust to.
