This review is from: ZALMAN LQ-310 Water/Liquid CPU Cooler 120MM
Pros: 30 degree temp. decline over OEM AMD 8350 fan says it all. I added a second fan to the setup which was easy as the cooler is designed to take two.
Other Thoughts: Installed on a 1 year old build so I had to take everything apart in order to fit the back plate to the bottom of the MB. Instructions somewhat sketchy but, in the end, I was able to get it installed in about an hour.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: RAIDMAX Simplex ATX-618B Black Steel / Plastic MicroATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: A lot of flexibility and the sliding door / slide-in for Sata Drives is useful. Good size and room throughout the box. Bought to be a server because of the slide-in HDD capability but ended up using it for my primary high-perfomance desktop. Airflow is good as multiple fans (120mm) have a front to rear airflow that encompasses the memory & cpu locations.
Cons: Rear 120 mm Fan died after 3 months (see other thoughts). Blue lights. Fancy lights aren't really of any benefit and I had to switch out two card readers until I got one that had a blue light to match the rest of the case.
Other Thoughts: A simple email contact to Raidmax and they sent out a new 120mm Fan with no questions asked within a couple of days. That kind of service is what will make me look at RaidMax for my next box.
