Pros: Good stock core speed
Good use of cores
Cons: Runs HOT
Stock cooler does not suffice for proper cooling
Other Thoughts: for some reason, the CPU I received had gouges and scratches on the surface.
Will be lapping the surface here soon.
Would like to see better CS from AMD.
This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm
Cons: Loud, Annoying to fit, mounting the water block is a pain..
Other Thoughts: When I took mine fresh out of the box, was impressed by the craftsmanship of the tubing and water block.
Upon further inspection, I noticed gouges/scratches in the copper block.
Worried, I continued to look at the radiator and noticed MULTIPLE light spots where the paint wasn't applied thick enough.
Mounted the block and ran some tests with Prime95 at STOCK core speed, temps exceeded the max 62C on my 8350. Mounted my older H60 and found temps stayed at a comfortable 50C at 100% load.
Will definitely be contacting Corsair.
Pros: - Keeps cool at high load
- Most games at Ultra High settings
- Overclocks easily
- Runs quietly
Cons: - Massive card (heavy / long)
- Obstructs water cooling route
- Size of the card makes it hard to x-fire
Other Thoughts: Besides the size of the card, I have no major issues with this thing. It looks like a beast and runs like one.READ FULL REVIEW
