This review is from: Thermaltake Water 3.0 Pro (CLW0223) Water/Liquid CPU Cooler 120MM
Pros: My CPU (i7 920) was running hot. On normal load it was sitting around C60 to C65. When I ran anything with flash or any game with heavy graphics it would jump up over C80 sometimes closing in on C100. This was causing issues of course so I thought I would try this out. What a huge difference it has made already. I installed it today and have been running for about 6 hours now and haven't gone past C50 at all. That is doing everything I do regularly that was causing heat issues before. I am amazed.
Cons: I almost marked this down an egg for this but in the end I was too happy with the heat reduction I am seeing with this product. However the instructions for install are complete junk. I ended up basically just puzzle piecing it together myself. I also wasn't a big fan of having to remove my motherboard to get the bottom piece in place, but I can live with that part. The radiator fans are much louder than I would like, but then again they are actually cooling my CPU very well so it is a trade off I am willing to accept.
Other Thoughts: If cooling your CPU is your main concern this is a great product. If I don't have any issues with it over the next few months I will not repost to this review so I will be officially standing by it at that point, but all signs point to it being exactly what I needed.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Nothing really special about this fan, it was easy to install on the back of my case. See other thoughts though.
Cons: Doesn't really push as much air as I would like it to and the fan control that came with it is kind of pointless. I didn't even bother installing it as I will always run this fan on high anyway.
Other Thoughts: The fan control that came with this seems pointless to me, so I skipped this in the install. Plugged it directly into my motherboard and it worked. Had to knock one egg off because of this waste and the slight lack of air that it pushes. This isn't really a newegg problem though, it is the product.READ FULL REVIEW
