This review is from: CRYORIG H7 Tower Cooler For AMD/Intel CPU
Pros: It fits in my Rosewill FBM-01 mid tower
Great clearance around the VRM area
Fan is very quiet, I wasn't even sure it was running until i looked at the bios.
Other Thoughts: This cooler keeps my i5-6660k that's overclocked to 4.6ghz at ~23c idle and ~55c stress test full load, more than impressed. I would have been happy if it kept it in the low 70s. I thought about replacing the fan with a Noctua when I ordered, but the one included is great and an extra pair of fan clips are included if you wanna setup a push-pull.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Overclocks nicely, I have gpucore running at 1220mhz/1350mhz boost and the ram overclocked to 1640mhz or 6.56ghz if you prefer. All this without additional pci-e 6 pin power. Haven't seen temps rise beyond 61c while bench-marking and the fan never got above 40 percent which can't be heard over my low rpm case fans. :)
Cons: Absolutely none so far unless you are into SLI, since this card lacks that.
Other Thoughts: The gpu seems to throttle gpucore clock back about 50mhz at full load regardless of whether it is overclocked or not. During benchmark it never dipped below 1305mhz.
Used EVGA Precision X to overclock.
Pros: Reads discs pretty quick, doesn't seem to have riplock.
Has a nice black brushed metal finish on the tray front.
Cons: Lots of mechanical noise in comparison to my last LG blu-ray drive, not nice for home theater.
Doesn't reach advertised read speeds on dual-layer blu-ray discs, closer to 7x-8x.
