CORSAIR Hydro Series H55 Quiet Edition Water / Liquid CPU Cooler 120mm
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs 8/10 Great Liquid CPU Cooler at it's Price Point 12/16/2015

This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H55 Quiet Edition Water / Liquid CPU Cooler 120mm

Pros: Was very easy to install. Keeps my I5-2500k under 50c while overclocked to 4.7 ghz.

I see a lot of reviews saying that it is loud. I've had mine for 2+ years now and it's still working like it's brand new and I really don't hear the thing run at all.

Other reviews mention it doesn't fit their case and bad egg it. It not fitting your case is no real fault of corsairs. It mounts to a standard 120mm fan slot. If your case's side panel is really close to the 120mm slot you mount it to then the cooler will bulge out past the side of the case preventing you from putting the side panel back on.

I solved that by mounting mine to the top center 120mm fan port in my case.

Corsair can't possibly know the dimensions of every case on the market, so don't fault them for that.

Other reviews mention the cooler not fitting their CPU slot and they have socket 1150.

They see "Universal Socket Comaptibility" and think it means it fits every socket. That was true when this cooler came out. Socket 1150, 2011, 2011-v3, and 1151 came out after this cooler was made.

If you read the description on Universal Socket Compatibility it clearly says:

"The Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H55 CPU Cooler features broad compatibility with Intel Socket 1156, 1155 and LGA1366, as well as AMD Socket AM2, AM3 and FM1."

So yes, this cooler does not support 1150, or 1151, but it tells you that in the specs/descriptions.

Cons: No real cons, but do keep in mind that the h55 is the baby cooler of the series. If you overclock hard you will not be able to keep your pc on for more than 4 or 5 hours as the radiator on this cooler is not big enough to handle the heat for that long of a continuous period. You will have to power down to let it cool off.

If you want a longer endurance cooler step up to the higher models in this series.

MSI GeForce GTX 660 DirectX 11 N660-2GD5/OC 2GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Fast and can run games on max

Cons: -Bad Performance to Value Ratio compared to other cards.

Other Thoughts: This card for me just isn't worth the money when you can get a 760 that performs 50% better for another $40 bucks.

E.g. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814500306

Is $249.99 and has the fastest OC of any 760 card on NewEgg and on passmark benchmarks the 760 beats this 660 by over 4000, imo rougly a 50%+ gain.

ASUS PB Series PB278Q 27
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: -High Resolution WQHD
-Decent Refresh Rate
-Affordable compared to other WQHD monitors

Cons: The only con I have is that most the content on the internet doesn't know what to do at WQHD resolutions. You tube videos that are 1080p look stretched and low res on this screen (well they are).

But that's not the monitors fault, so no eggs were lost.

I mostly bought this for FFXIV ARB's beta and the Launch on Aug 27th, game looks FANTASTIC on this screen.

Other Thoughts: If you play League Of Legends, this screen makes the gameplay so much more fluent. You can click much easier and it's much harder for character hit boxes to overlap at this resolution... I'd go so far as to say this screen will give you an edge over the competition, you have twice the screen realestate as 99% of the player base.
