This review is from: Antec KUHLER H2O 650 Water/Liquid CPU Cooler 120MM
Pros: It kept my 3570k cool when doing a little gaming in a mini itx set up.
Cons: I noticed this beep sound when in windows, almost like sonar in the distance. It's the sound you hear when a dvd drive goes bad or can't read a disc but almost like clockwork every 5 seconds. It's obviously not a beep code so if you hear it then know that it means most likely this cooler's fan is rocking back and forth not cooling your cpu in the least. Luckily it gives you the option to add a 120mm fan for push pull cooling of the radiator. Always use that when cooling a radiator in case a fan fails. As of now the kuhler fan is limping and my back up is saving my cpu. Temps are ok with open window for now but I gotta send this thing in. When the computer starts up the fan will hit high rpm but then it just gives up and I have to spin it like a propeller to get it up to maybe 60RPM. 6 months in and it does this and it has a 3 year warranty! I switch up fan connectors and everything to no avail, the second fan still works perfectly.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Noctua NH-L9i 95mm SSO2 CPU Cooler
Pros: Out of almost every board, it doesn't fit mine. I just thought I should tell everyone out there before they are really disappointed and lose money.
Cons: The price seems a bit high to be honest.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: DIYPC MiniQ1-B Black SECC MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case w/ Dual White Fans
Pros: This case is perfect. It is small enough to be discreet and big enough to handle your basic needs. First off it looks beautiful, especially the white version, looks like an ipod. The paint is glossy and finely done, the on button is terrific, and it's sturdier than the lowest priced cases out there. It's not flimsy stuff your used to with cheap cases and everything like teh window and drive bay door fit snug.
It can even hold a 260 gtx, just barely though...really tight fit on the cables but hey it fits and the gpu can still breath and that's impressive for the size.
Cons: noneREAD FULL REVIEW
