Pros: This power-line kit was definitely an upgrade over the previous one I haved owned Netgear AV500. It is much faster inside the walls and out plus it allows me to connect other devices without rendering the wall socket usless. The main pros of this unit for me are.
-offers fasters speeds, in my case arround 600mbps compared to the 350mbps from my netgear
- does work with other brands of power-line connection units due to being HomePlug compliant
- very good for streaming and 4k
- eliminates use of extra wires and extends network to areas where cable or wifi might be problematic
-convenient to move around from socket to socket as needed
Cons: This units technology supports 2x2 MIMO which makes use of all three of the neutral, ground and live wires to offer faster speeds and more stable connections. Unfortunately the wiring in my home is not all that modern so thats a limiting factor for me.
- speeds dependent on in-home wiring
-unit is rather bulky, I would prefer it to be much smaller, may cause issues with your walls backboards if your sockets are too low
- gigabit port placed on bottom of unit, I think a side port would be more economical
-1200mbps not attainable in my environment 600mbps ish max
Other Thoughts: This unit is definitely an improvement over what I had before and would definitely recommend it. It is adequate for 4k, streaming and gaming that should be enough for any hardcore techie. Theres much less setup involved with extending a network using this system than there is with routers, cables and wireless adapters so that is a big plus. For me the biggest plus is the ability to move it around the house with ease.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The entire product appears to be well built and doesn't look as though Corsair cut any obvious corners with this product. The hoses are very thick and the seals look like they aren't going to be coming off any time soon. The radiator, as expected is a thin 280mm one and fit nicely into the front of my NXTZ S340 case. The fans are slightly larger than a typical 120mm fan and move alot more air which I love. They are not super silent but acceptable. More air movement = better cooling. Speaking of the fan, there are no lights. Which is fine with me. The pump housing has some RBG lights and can be configured to either blue, red or white which is awesome.
Some other Pro's that I like about this item are:
-CPU runs cooler
-Internal temps are lower
- More case air-flow
-Relatively straight forward installation
-Inexpensive for a water cooled solution
-5 year manufacturer warranty (great peace of mind)
Cons: Well it is a very nice unit and does do what it was designed to do and that is to fit in newer gen cases and provide extreme cooling for the cpu. For me I would like to see better overall fans included in the kit. The ones included are great but adding some RBG function to them would be welcome.
Some other Con's:
-Installation can be challenging
-Corsair link buggy but Corsair releases constant updates so thats a relief
Other Thoughts: In conclusion to this essay the corsair h115i is a great aio. Easy installation, excellent performance, cool, and quiet with customizable rgb lighting. The h115i is great cooler for anyone looking into the liquid cooling spectrum, a great middle ground between bulky air coolers, and expensive custom loops. Just make sure your case can fit it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great manufacturer, great warranty and great looking card.
Cons: This is a re-branded older generation AMD card using older technologies. Got this to check out the FeeSync feature of my monitor and it turned out this card does not support FreeSync due to it being a older generation card.
Other Thoughts: Ran Fallout 4 on this before I had to return it and it looked ok but oh boy when I popped in a GTX 970 afterward it was a whole new gaming experience. Much better colors and visuals.READ FULL REVIEW
