Cooler Master Seidon 240M – All-In-One CPU Liquid Water Cooling System with 240mm Radiator and 2 Fans
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: For my first time water cooling this thing isn't bad, although I won't shoot it completely down considering I'm running an i7-3930K and currently in the act of Folding @ Home which beats the processes of the CPU/GPU down a lot. For something that is constantly running it keeps my temps down at about 59*C - but mind that is at the PCW control of the motherboard controlling the pump, I need to switch it over to the PSU for constant power but oh well.

Cons: It's running slightly hotter than I'd like it to when I'm folding proteins, although it's on a 3930K it still hits about 59*C on light which is running my system at approx. 50-60% and when ran at medium it operates around 69-75*C which I find a bit unsettling. But again this may be due to me running it off the motherboard and not on the PSU, either way still a bit warm for having being a water cooled setup.

Other Thoughts: Overall it's not bad, it's already sealed so there isn't any maintenance to be done and it comes with fans - not bad for just over $100. Also at idle I run about mid 30*C and sometimes, on a warm day, just below 40*C.

Corsair Graphite Series 600T Arctic White Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: For a mid-tower case it definitely is quite spacious! For the longest time I've not so much stayed away from mid tower cases but avoided them due to partial air restrictions, especially when operating under overclocking conditions. But this thing, has room for plenty of water cooling, for a mid tower, and easy panel removal without having to reach behind the case and find screw holes. Although I haven't fully water cooled mine, it's not bad the way it is right now.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Too bad it doesn't come standard, or at least optional, to have the custom clear acrylic window that allows you to see the whole case. But again, I can't complain, great case, love the rear cable routing (pretty good again for a mid tower), and over niceness of the build. Not much more I can say about performance as I haven't fully water cooled it to see what it can really do under extreme modding conditions...

G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-14900CL10Q-32GBZL
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Although this isn't the same ram purchased before it is still the G.Skill Ripjaws series that I keep purchasing and have had ZERO problems with them, before and now. Great for overclocking, assuming you know how to set it up, and doesn't get excessively hot. Not to mention it fits comfortably under the Thermaltake Frio I currently have installed.

Cons: None, love this ram and will be getting more once I require more than 32GB.

Other Thoughts: Since I barely budge 1/4 of the useage on these I'm moving 3 sticks over to my new build that will be for video processing/editing, 8GB is more than enough for running programmes like Unigine, WoW, Sony Vegas (bit more usage from CS5) and whatnot...
