Pros: Great looking, matches my case color sceme perfectly - black and blood red. the breathing LED is super cool looking too
Cons: feels cheap. cheap plasticy casing makes it not really feel as trustworthy as it should be as my CPU cooler.
tubing is super stiff - i felt like i was fighting with it all through install and I was moving it around very gingerly as it felt like it was gonna pop at any time... it didn't but it's a hard feeling to shake when there is so much struggle
Other Thoughts: I run a very hot CPU (AMD DX-9590 8core) and this thing has gotten me into single digits at times (using Core Temp, my min max values range from 9-58 degrees Celsius).
looks great, once it's installed.
While i like the "visual liquid" showing through the CPU block, it's just a solid red - a little flow indicator tossed in there would look amazing and give a little more life to it.
This review is from: Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G
Pros: conducts as it should, stays put.
Cons: not a fan of the applicator, I definitely over did it when i applied it.
messy! the spreading of the goo as i tightened my cooler onto my CPU dripped onto the black backplate of my video card and made a mess that i have yet to be able to clear up - my fault for the liberalness of my application, but annoying regardless.
Other Thoughts: like the title says, i was never too interested in what goo i used, and often would just use whatever i had around from old CPU/Cooler combos. this stuff has changed me.. spend the extra and get it, totally will make a difference in temps.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: great looking, bright, easy install.
I had no use for the rubber toolless screw things as i am using the two fans i bought on my water radiator.
Cons: not "silent" by any means, but pretty dang quiet for the amount of air they push.
a little slow on the spin speed, but that comes from the quiet need here.
Other Thoughts: I found it a little weird they have orange fan blades,
the green ones have green LEDs and Green fans, the Blue the same, why Red and Orange? We'll never know!
This almost made me not get it for my all red lit case but it barely shows when the bright LEDs do their job.
