This review is from: VANTEC STG-100 All-in-one Water Cooling Kit
Pros: Awesome cooling device, everything sets up well and I had the whole thing up and running in about an hour. Now in addition to this system I added 3 case fans which for extreme gamers (like myself) you may want to consider this too. My case (Ultra UV blue) I put an 80mm fan in the front, 80mm fan in the Ultra logo on the clear side panel and a 120mm fan at the back. Heres a tip for extra radiator cooling, make a push/pull config with the fans, reverse the position of the fan on the rad to its blowing away from the radiator and have the case fan blowing into it. Temps before adding fans w/ liquid system - GPU 124F @ idle 165F @ max load. CPU 77F @idle, 85 @ max load. NB, 95F @ idle, 115F @ max load. With new fan config - GPU, 86F @ idle, 94F @ max load, CPU 62F @ idle, 67F @ max load. NB 88F @ idle, 95F @ max load. This system does WORK!!!
AMD 6000+ X2, 8600GT GPU, Nvidia 500 SLI NB.
Cons: Hoses do kink easily so run down to your local hardware store (ACE by me) and get yourself some 1/2 in. spiral rap, does the trick and looks good too! Disco lights very annoying, unscrew the underside panel and unplug.
Other Thoughts: Vantec has put out a great cooling system in my eyes and granted its not the cheapest on the market, it has every right not to be because it does the job - WELL.READ FULL REVIEW
