Cons: Extremely cheap pump. Works only about 1 month.
You do not trust that fake blue LED. Your pump will not work even if blue LED is on.
You can lose entire component by overheat if you use high end CPU.
Other Thoughts: Used it for about 40 days. Just registered CM website in order to process RMA. I may not use it even though they replaced pump. TOO DANGEROUS. I almost lost more than $500 because this.
CPU temp hit 100C and this almost fried my MB. Thanks to my MB that has strict temperature protection. (Asrock Z97 with I7 4790K). LED indicator was on. There were no sign of failure. CAUTION!
If your MB does not have protection function. AVOID this at all cost. You will lose your MB and CPU potentially GPU too.
This review is from: ZOTAC GeForce GTX 970 4GB
Pros: 1. Adequate size. It will fit most of MB type except tiny ITX case.
2. Does not have any fancy LED light or super futuristic design. It just looks like ordinary graphic card.
3. Decent performance for price.
4. Low power consumption.
5. Temperature is fine without OC
Cons: 1. Fan metal housing is very thin.
2. Packaging box is very big.
3. Zotac software is joke.
Other Thoughts: No coil whine for me. I am using 605W 80+ platinum PSU. 24/7 runnung.
Installed it on In Win 910 mini ITX case. Using dining room with 55 inch TV HTPC. No temperature issue on minimal cooling system(no OC). May not be a heavy OC user GPU.
I-7 4790K - no OC
16GB DDR3 1600

Coolermaster seidon 120V
One silence 120mm case fan.
Pros: Working great almost 24/7 running home server (4 vm operating)
Has enough connectors
Handles multiple torturing usage for high end system.
Cons: Changing price unpredictably.
Other Thoughts: I have upgraded most of home server components every year including case but this one is the only survivor since my initial build.
I used it for playing game, watching movie, running cloud server, using as a office machine, vmwares, etc.
