This review is from: Antec KUHLER H2O 650 Water/Liquid CPU Cooler 120MM
Pros: I went from a stock cooler to this on my AMD FX-8120 and temps dropped from 60+ C to 38ish C with it overclocked from 3.1GHz to 3.55GHz. I see people complaining it's hard to install, don't know why. It took me no more than 30 mins, granted my case had a hole behind the motherboard and I was able to reuse the stock AMD backplate. Even than, hardest thing is just holding the plate in place and getting the first 2 screws started. Not much they could do to fix that. Fits perfectly in my case and have a second fan installed.
Cons: None so far.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great card, nice upgrade for my old gForce 9600GS.
Cons: It ran a lil hot at first till I manually set fan to 100%. At 100%, fan is loud as hell, but bearable.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Antec Eleven Hundred Black Super Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Great case, it's huge. I bought it from a local store to replace my stock HP Pavilion's case as I upgraded the video card & power supply in it already. This case will make further upgrades in the future easy.
Other Thoughts: I didn't think ahead when I bought the power supply I did & it's cabled are a little too short. I was able to route them, but lost most of my connections behind the case, not that I needed them anyway. Just means in the future I'll have to replace it when I go Crossfire. Also, I set the top fans to max & it's quiet to me, so maybe the people complaining about noise got a faulty fan. My GPU's fan is a lot louder.READ FULL REVIEW
