Pros: Cheapest I could find
Cons: First accesses are very slow and freeze up my computer for about 7 seconds. Sometimes I'll click on a folder and it will do that. But after that it seems to work fine.
Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H90 High Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 140mm
Pros: I got this for my AMD FX-8350. The stock fan is LOUD. I could barely hear the game's sound effects over the fan even at high volumes.
When I first turned it on I could hear the pump, but that went away after a few minutes. Now I can't hear anything from it when I put my head next to it. All I can hear are the quiet case fans.
When I played watchdogs before I'd get 70 degrees Celsius. Now I can play and it only gets to 40 degrees Celsius. And this is at the highest settings.
Cons: It was difficult to install. The instructions were pretty easy to follow, but it was still a lot of work.
I didn't take space considerations into account when I bought this. I have a mid tower. The heatsink on this is HUGE. It wouldn't fit in any standard configuration I could think of. I finally devised a way to mount my fan outside of the case, with the heat sink just below it inside the case. But the case wasn't designed to fit a liquid heat-sink this big.
So really the cons were my fault, but it worked out anyway.
