Pros: Huge, plenty of space for quad sli - if my board only had one more PCIe slot. I have 2 radiators in it now i could put a few more in. i love the power button cover - cant accidentally turn it off when you're having a blonde moment *happens when you forget you turned your monitor off and the computer is still on. hot swap rocks *and works without frustration or banging pins and hard drive back planes. Great wire management options. If you have a custom water cooled system, it has nice grommets for external heat exchanging ( i think that's what its for i use stand alone solutions )
Cons: Huge- one hell of a footprint, i have to run it without wheels to fit under my computer table. backplane for the usb3 seems nonfunctional, ive never really investigated more than "it doesn't seem to work" and just ran a jumper to the back and used a slot for usb3 out the rear. (more plastic than i thought, but thats not why i chose this case anyways). I didn't choose open box product but it was obviously opened when i received it, screws were taped back into the torn bag, that's not cooler masters fault at all.
Other Thoughts: quiet stock fans, Ive replaced a few, and one died but i fault myself for failure to blow the case clean as often as i should.READ FULL REVIEW

This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H60 (CWCH60) High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
Pros: kept my i7 2700k in the 20s in haf X case ... for about 6 months. Silly pro actually; I didn't really realize the pump had died because the pump and block are a good heat sink. I dont OC but something tells me i could have safely gone into the 4's with this cooling solution.
Cons: see above - lasted 6 months ~ 6 hours use per day with random days off. pump was noisy from start and got louder and louder till i noticed temps climbed to high 30s and 40s and the pump was dead silent for as long as i can remember. It may have been dead for a few months now, luckally its only my gaming machine and i dont game very much anymore. rebate was also declined
Other Thoughts: I have a TT A80 big water but i read bad reviews on it as well. I'll say this, the H60 "appears" to be well built, where as the thermaltake unit i have feels so cheap i dont want to risk my gaming rig by putting something in it that may leak on my 480gtx's in sli and 300 dollar cpu. I may go back to stock cooler till a coupon comes up for a new LQ solution on newegg. I would give this unit a shot if it came up on a 50% or more sale; due to pump always being noisy i probably just got a flakey unit. discarded box after cuting out the sku, something tells me it will be an RMA headache.READ FULL REVIEW
