CORSAIR Hydro Series H55 Quiet Edition Water / Liquid CPU Cooler. 120mm
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Does a good job cooling. With the stock fan it kept my i5 3570 (stock) under 60C at full load.

Cons: I don't know why they call this the "quiet edition", because this thing is LOUD.

The stock fan isn't PWM and it is pretty loud. I swapped it out with a 800 rpm Scythe slipstream I had laying around, which took care of that issue.

The far more serious problem is the pump vibration. I installed rubber washers between the fan and case, both sides. This thing still vibrates so badly that I can feel the vibration in my desk. That means that the vibration is travelling up the rubber tubes, through the radiator, through the fan, through the rubber washers, through the case, through the case's rubber feet, and into the desk. And that's at minimum pump speed.

Other Thoughts: Fix the noise issues, could be a good entry-level AIO water cooler.

PowerColor AX7870 2GBD5-2DHV4E/OC Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: 75C in a closed case under a regular gaming load. Very quiet. Small (3%) factory overclock on the gpu. Priced very aggressively.

Cons: came with no extra cables, if you care about that kind of thing.

Other Thoughts: With a bit of an overclock, this card is the same thing as an R9 270X for ~$80 less. Great price/performance.

MSI Z77A-G41 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Z77 chipset, low price.

Cons: **Second PCI-E slot runs at PCI-E 2.0 4x only**. This may be a bottleneck when crossfiring high-end cards. No mosfet cooling at all. You don't get all of the USB ports supplied by the Z77 chipset.
