Pros: You get to tell your friends your GPU is liquid cooled and act like you are superior to them.
Cons: I've been fiddling with this product for over a month now, and I've found it's just completely incapable of keeping VRM1 on a reference stock R9 290x cool. The temp of VRM2 and the GPU itself stays pretty low at around 60-65C, but VRM2 slowly creeps uo to 97C and causes my system to lock up every time.
I've taken this cooler apart and put it back together over half a dozen times now to try to make small adjustments to remedy this, I even bought expensive aftermarket thermal pads in hopes that would pull more heat away from VRM1 to the heatsink to solve my issue. No dice, this product just fails to deliver and I am seriously frustrated and angry at this point.
Other Thoughts: Don't buy this. If your looking for an AIO liquid gpu cooler still I'd recommend giving the Corsair Hydro HG10 a look over this product. It comes out in August and from the looks of it, it will be superior to this product in every way.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Diablotek PHD Series PHD550 550W ATX12V V2.2 Power Supply
Pros: It doesn't blow up and/or catch fire immediately after installing.
Cons: This PSU will die on you, mine lasted about a year before failing. Luckily it didn't catch fire or take out any of my hardware with it.
Other Thoughts: Diablotek is a company you want to stay away from when buying PSU's, unfortunately I was not aware of this when I purchased this power supply. So now I am here warning the rest of you to stay away from this product.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The power supply works?
Cons: The fan inside the PSU when mounted at the bottom of my case seems to be hitting something inside the PSU making horrible loud grinding noise, unless I tilt my computer tower at a 90 degree angle.READ FULL REVIEW
