Cooler Master Glacer 240L – Expandable CPU Liquid Water Cooling System with 240mm Copper Radiator and 2 Fans
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Did well when it worked

Cons: After owning this for less than 3 months, the pump caught fire and filled my room with smoke ! I checked the radiator and tank, and it was full of coolant, so that was not this issue! Shortly after the incident I replaced it a basic fan and contacted Cooler master, didn't have time to follow up with it, due to a stroke, which put me out of commission for over 6 months. ;-9
Now I am probably stuck with it.

Other Thoughts: DO NOT BUY!

Cooler Master Glacer 240L – Expandable CPU Liquid Water Cooling System with 240mm Copper Radiator and 2 Fans
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Quiet and Solid water cooling system. Able to remove tubing and has a reservoir filling cap, which was absolutely essential to install in my Antec 1200 Case. very low temps, way better than my V8 Air cooler! Almost cut my temps in 1/2. Very happy with the performance.

Cons: For AMD installation Throw away the instructions, the only thing they are good for is toilet paper!!!!
One thing you MUST do which is not told or shown in the "Instructions" is you MUST INSTALL THE SPRINGS on the mount pins. They are included with the Intel install packs so I used them, but not with the AMD one???.
The only way I even knew the springs where suppose to go on the mount pins was to magnify the Illustration like 400x!, and barely see them. There are ZERO notes about this at all, and if you do not use the springs it will not make a good contact, and possibly damage your CPU, if not caught in time.
I felt they just added the AMD install section as an afterthought, thinking everyone has an Intel chip ;_) Totally unprofessional, and for some pps it seems to take away from the overall quality of this product, even though this is a top notch water cooler
The radiator that came with my kit had a round indent right on the face of it. It was no big deal since the radiator did not leak, just a cosmetic issue, but still.

Other Thoughts: For anyone installing this product on an Antec 1200 case, which is a very popular case being sold. It will NOT! fit on the inside. there is not enough room taking out the 2 existing fans and trying to mount it there. I was so happy I was able to remove the tubing, because the only way to fit this was to install the radiator on the outside and the CPU block on the inside, be sure to bleed system after installing it.
One other issue is the 8 fan mount holes DO NOT completely line up with the Antec holes. I simply solved this issue by drilling out the holes a little larger, and then was able to mount it properly.
Anyway after everything said, I am very happy with my purchase.

Linksys AE2500-NP High Performance Dual-Band Wireless-N Adapter IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n USB 2.0 Up to 300Mbps Wireless Data Rates
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Works fine with win 7

Cons: DO NOT buy if you are using windows 8, or especially 8.1
They only offer support for Windows 7. Pretty sad since windows 8 has been released for over a year now. constant disconnects in windows 8 and 8.1, their latest drivers are 1 1/2 years old, and of course for windows 7, and earlier only. Even the Windows 8 compatible site shows this as incompatible for 8 or 8.1
