This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H60 (CW-9060007-WW/RF) Water Cooler Manufactured Recertified
Pros: Great price. Seems like it was brand new. Comes with the shrink wrap plastic on the box. Cools much better than stock cooler especially when running Intel burn test.
Cons: Tubing is a little stiff. But I did use a micro-atx board so it has a good bend to it.
Other Thoughts: Bought mostly for the fact that the stock Intel cooler is so unbelievably bad. The way it mounts through the four holes...READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Heavy steel. Durable. Cool lights if you like that sort of bling.
Cons: Outdated. Cheap fans that are poorly placed. Case released in early 2008. Much more modern options out there. For same price you can get a Corsair, Fractal Design, Phanteks, etc
Other Thoughts: It was a good buy for me in 2009. Passed it on to my son in late 2012. Buying him a Fractal Design R4 for his birthday. The Smilodon will live on when sold to one of his friends .READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fantastic card. Ranks between a GTX 570 and GTX 580 in performance. Uses 100 watts less power than a GTX 570. Very quiet compared to a GTX 570. Runs 30 degrees C cooler than the 570 it replaced. 2GB VRAM compared to GTX 570 w/1.25GB. Plays BF4 on high on my son's computer. His computer is CPU limited however (Phenom II 940 running at near 100% in multiplayer all the time!)
Cons: I instinctively shook the card in my hand as soon as I took it out of the plain jane EVGA box. My heart sank to the floor when i could hear something rattleing around in the card. I figured I got a dud!!!. I noticed one of the securing nuts on either side of one of the DVI connectors was missing. I was able to eventually gently shake it out of the card and screw it back on. Card works flawlessly but EVGA refurb techs should have secured that nut tighly on. It could have ruined the card.
Other Thoughts: This card is for a backup gaming computer I am building so my son can have a Lan party at our house to play BF4 with a friend. I took a chance on a refurb and got lucky. If only my own GTX 780 would run as stable as this card !!READ FULL REVIEW
