This review is from: Swiftech H220 Water Cooler
Pros: Operates quietly
Excellent cooling (i7 930 4GHz 1.6V @ 47-75C)
Cons: Very poor quality pumps
Other Thoughts: After one month, my first pump began emitting a rattling sound and a high pitched buzz that gradually intensified over a few days. I contacted Swiftech and they promptly replaced it with a refurbished pump. The second pump died abruptly after three months...
My last Swiftech product (an MCW20 chipset cooler) sprung a leak that fried my system but I thought after six years they may have stepped up their game... it seems I was wrong.
This review is from: VANTEC NexStar NST-350UF Aluminum Alloy 3.5" IDE USB2.0 & 1394 External Enclosure
Pros: I love the compact size and the durable materials. I use a laptop as my primary computer and I own three of these. I've shoved them in luggages, backpacks, laptop cases, taken them to LAN parties, on train rides, etc and they still run fine every time I turn them on. I've tried a few other brands/models but this is the best I've found.
Cons: They get pretty hot with extended use. I have them in their stands running vertically and after several hours of continuous use they are uncomfortably hot to the touch.READ FULL REVIEW
