Pros: Fast graphics and able to OC as well as SLI. Fans are quiet and even though it is double wide, it doesn't seem to take up a lot of space in my case.
Cons: After using it for a week it died. Couldn't get a picture through the HDMI port. Newegg replaced my brand new (1 week old) GPU with one that works but was refurbished. Even though the GPU worked better than the new one, which is sad, it was scratched up from the previous user or from the repair process. I paid for new and got used, and Newegg wouldn't compensate me the difference. Typically refurbished products are about 25% marked down...not for me, I payed full price!
Other Thoughts: Notice: Beware sending off the rebate documents right away because you'll need to return "EVERYTHING" to Newegg. That includes the original box with the original UPC code or they will NOT replace your product without constant harrassment.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H80i High Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 120mm
Pros: Easy install with enough hose to reach nearly every mounting site in my case. Corsair Link is a great tool to help monitor your temps and fan speeds right from the desktop.
Cons: Fans are loud when running at full speed, but they definitely move a lot of air through the radiator. Push - pull fans make this set up very thick, so in the first mounting position I couldn't close the cover with my 200mm fan mounted in the window. Moved radiator and both fans to the other side, problem solved. The bad news came when my CPU over heated and my computer shut down. I found out that after only 2-3 months of use, the pump began going out. I could hear it ticking and when I monitor Corsair Link, temps begin to climb under minimal CPU load.
Other Thoughts: Sadly, when you search for Corsair Water Coolers with "5 egg" rating, you'll see one item...It's the refurbished H80i. That has to send a message if the refurbished models are better than when they are new! Newegg will only replace items within 30 days, but the good news Corsair has a much longer warranty. Jumped through a few hoops, but finally have a new one on the way.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This massive fan is huge and spans the entire window of my case. I'm using this on top cover to push hot air up and out. Fan runs slow but very quiet and moves a lot of air. All black helps conceal it's presence as well as lack of LEDs allows me to see motherboard and all components.
Other Thoughts: Had to move CPU water cooler radiator to the other side of the case in order to allow cover to close. Not a problem and didn't see a need to lower rating.READ FULL REVIEW
