Pros: well built, nice gold connectors, extra length I needed
Cons: Bulky and heavy like all these older cables soon to be gone in future I keep my slack up by adding a support clip on my desk so they do not hang and make my 960 FTW card connector loose it has happened in past with DVI.
I find it to be slower than even HDMI with brass connectors when loading large programs and especially games although it does show a different slightly image than HDMI.
Other Thoughts: I would recommend this product but personally prefer HDMI and will be moving back to it with updated high density gold connectors and high performance speed/transfer rate.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Corsair Hydro Series H80i V2 Water / Liquid CPU Cooler. 120mm CW-9060024-WW
Pros: It ran... Making a updated review more detailed...
Cons: Installed the H80i v2 idle/max temps went over 10C+ than on air currently back on cooler master evo 212, I even changed the thermal compound to high performance brand I always use same results as stock paste.
Skylake i6700k OC'd @ 4.6ghz running air before testing because I thought the reviewers were overclocking the skylakes wrong but nope. Also my case is HUGE the tubes were way way to long hitting the side of my case when closed and pushing down on my EVGA 960ftw card.
Case THOR V2 build on air 22-28C idle (idle to me is browser open and a couple task running) never over 57C max load with a $30 Coolermaster Evo 212 push/pull.
My build specs.

Other Thoughts: Refunded was a let down seems these have a thing for running hot on skylake chips, I looked through the reviews on all the coolers before purchase everything was way hotter than mine on air. I open reviews to 100 per page ctrl+S for search and take a look at the 6700k searches and temps, if I could upload my air temp proof specs I would.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very nice looking small fits HDD's and SSD's super easy plug and go. Just a note I renamed this drive once it is plugged in to (DRIVE LETTER - Z) so in the future I can have my order if I am creating partitions on my 10gbs of new drives!
Fast efficient plug and transfer, small files in kb's will take longer coming off older drives as expected, largers files will meet the older drives max transfer speeds (old 7200 rpm drives not newer ones) This saved 13yrs of research and data from a failing drive TY.
Other Thoughts: Highly recommended I'm not a big fan of external drives.READ FULL REVIEW
