This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H100 (CWCH100) Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
Pros: -Offers cooler temps at higher loads.
-Self contained and maintenance free.
-Easy to install.
Cons: -Quiet is not a word I would use to describe this.
-Things get a bit messy with all the wires.
-You don't have control over the fans, despite it claiming to have 3 modes. It just does its thing and keeps the computer cool.
Other Thoughts: This thing sounds like a vacuum cleaner at start up, it does get quieter over time. It is unnecessary to have the fans on full blast on start up. It is a waste of energy and shortens the life of the fans. Not to mention loud.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8 64-bit (Full Version)
Pros: -Windows 7 with enhanced touchscreen features.
-Windows 7 with performance enhancements.
This is Windows 7 folks just better with more functionality. If you don't like dealing with the new "start screen" download Classic Shell, or Start 8. Those programs will bring back the start menu until Microsoft adds it back in.
Cons: -Everything seems kind of flat, but this really isn't much of a con.
-Some printers and other "legacy" devices don't work as they should, expect this issues to be worked out rather quickly.
Other Thoughts: If you have or want to get a touchscreen get Windows 8, if you want a better running version of Windows get Windows 8. It is much better optimized and uses less of your systems power.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Powers the system.
Well built appearance, also feels sturdy.
Cons: High pitch buzzing and whine.
Cables are short.
Other Thoughts: While this PSU works and displays voltages within tolerances of 1% I will not be using this PSU, as it has a disturbing buzzing and whine to it at random points and will even produce this noise in what seems like conjunction with the mouse movements. I honestly have no idea what would cause this. However, I will not keep it to find out if it is something that will cause me more severe issues in the future.READ FULL REVIEW
