This review is from: ASUS Sabertooth X79 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Nothing in particular.
Cons: My audio completely stopped working all the sudden -- I have generic speakers connected via the single green audio plug in the back of the computer and a headset plugged into the front panel green audio plug. An internet search revealed that MANY other people are having the same audio problem. All connections are well seated and I double verified to be in the correct connectors. All the latest drivers. The realtek sound manager GUI displays all of the audio ports dimmed as though no speakers are plugged in. Very frustrated after 3 days of unsuccessful troubleshooting. A computer without audio is basically a brick. I'm sure it isn't a hardware problem but some kind of software/driver problem.

This review is from: Corsair Obsidian Series 650D (CC650DW-1) Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Mid Tower Case
Pros: Very attractive, sleek minimalist design. Well ventilated. Wonderful tool-less and easy access for component installs. Great cable management features.
Cons: The only downside I have which is the same downside I've had with every Corsair product I've bought...documentation. The only documentation is a fold out explode diagram of the removable parts. There is zilch info on the cables, front panel, hotswap docking bay, etc. I had to google the location of the tiny fan controller switch.
Other Thoughts: I bought this case from somewhere other that Newegg, only because Newegg was out of stock at that time.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H110 Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 280mm
Pros: So far so good.
Cons: Documentation is sparse.
Other Thoughts: I mounted it to the top of my Obsidian 650D. Mounting it was somewhat challenging. Holding the fans, radiator, and screws in place while lining up all the screw holes without them tumbling down was difficult. The best way I found was to flip the case on it's head so that gravity keeps the radiator and fans in place while you screw up through the case vent and screw holes. The documentation, little that there is, recommended an intake configuration. (Screws-->Vent-->Fans-->Radiator.) This actually is the only configuration my Obsidian 650 would allow. Screws-->Vent-->Radiator-->Fans won't work because you can't put the radiator flush against the vent, it's obstructed by pieces of the case. Thank goodness I didn't buy extra fans for a push/pull config.READ FULL REVIEW
