DEEPCOOL Gamer Storm CAPTAIN 240 CPU Liquid Cooler AIO Water Cooling Ceramic Bearing Pump Visual Liquid Flow with Dual 120mm FDB PWM Fan Rubber Coating Deep Silent Support LGA 2011-v3
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Excellent at its job, clear tube lets you see the coolant as it moves (or when it doesn't)

Cons: Pulsing light is a bit cheesy, pump failure after a few months

Other Thoughts: I really liked this cooler and am disappointed by the short life span. After several tries, the pump will start and continue to run until the system is shut off but then refuses to restart. The LED still pulses indicating that it is getting power, using a molex adapter for direct power and switching fan ports didn't kick it on. What's really annoying is that sometimes it will work and the pump makes no noise indicating that it's failing...all works perfectly. It almost seems like it's a more basic electrical issue than the pump itself but it's a sealed unit and opening it to investigate would ruin my warranty.

Time to see how Deepcool does on warranties!

Intel Core i7-4770K Haswell Quad-Core 3.5 GHz LGA 1150 84W BX80646I74770K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Low power consumption, great IPC, everything you'd expect from the consumer grade i7. I've been running it at 4.5-4.7GHz for 2 years without a hiccup

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I've been running Folding@Home primarily on it. After 2 years of being at 4.5GHz (or higher) under full load, it has yet to fail a single work unit.

G.SKILL Sniper Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-2133C10D-16GSR
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Very fast, overclocks well and latencies can be kept really tight. Price has really come down

Cons: Well...the price has dropped significantly since I purchased it. I purchased 9/30/13 for $159.99!

Other Thoughts: I wound up purchasing a 2nd kit a year or so ago. I've got 4 sticks at 10-11-11-24 at 2133 and haven't seen an error. The system runs Folding@Home a majority of the time and after 2 years, I've not had a memory fault.
