Antec KUHLER H2O 920 Liquid Cooling System
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs 10/09/2013

This review is from: Antec KUHLER H2O 920 Liquid Cooling System

Pros: Quality built product that works well

Cons: Fans extremely noisy at full speed

Other Thoughts: CPU: Intel i7 950 D0 (130W) @ 4.011Ghz (21x121)
Motherboard: Gigabyte X58A-UD3R (R2.0) Bios FH
Memory: 6 GB Corsair DDR3 1333 (CM3X2G1333C9)
running at 764Mhz 10-11-11-28-1T
Case: Gigabyte Aurora 3D Full Tower (mesh side panel)
CPU Cooler: Antec Kuhler H2O 920 (fan thresholds set
at 30 and 50 degrees C in the included
software, fans blowing into the case)
Additional Case Cooling: Two Aerocool Extreme Turbine
120mm Fans @ 1500rpm (one
on the front and one on back,
both blowing air into the case)
Video Card: EVGA Geforce 210 (obviously NOT a gamer)
Power Supply: Corsair GS600
OS Drive: 2 SSDs in RAID 0 (no heat factor)
Storage Drive: Western Digital 1Tb (assembly temperature
47 degrees C)
Ambient Room Temperature: 23 degrees C.

The cpu case temperature is 40 degrees C under no load and 59 degrees C at full load with Prime 95 running for 12 hours with the Vcore at 1.31v in the BIOS. Individual core temperatures max out at 74 degrees C and the the Antec Chill Control software reports a fluid temperature of 44.8
degrees C at full cpu load. Yes this system is an older system (all parts purchased in 2011 or earlier except for the liquid cooling system) but, it does show the ability of the Antec Kuhler H2O 920 to cool the cpu efficiently at an atainable sustained overclock. Never having to run the fans at full speed, the fan noise at the above speeds provide for a very tolerable noise level even when listening to music at low volume levels in the living room.

Mushkin Enhanced Chronos 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Mushkin 3 year waranty. Trim and RAID support. 2.5" to 3.5" adapter bracket included.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: ATTO Benchmark 550MB/s read and 502MB/s write running Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 with the updated firmware from Mushkin. Windows boots in less than 13 seconds. Asus K53E laptop with 8GB G.Skill DDR3 1333 memory. Plan on purchasing two of these drives to run in RAID0 as an OS drive in my PC with a PCI-E RAID controller. A good buy.

Intel Core 2 Duo E6420 Conroe Dual-Core 2.13 GHz LGA 775 65W BX80557E6420 Processor

5 out of 5 eggs Intel...What else needs to be said? 01/15/2008

This review is from: Intel Core 2 Duo E6420 Conroe Dual-Core 2.13 GHz LGA 775 65W BX80557E6420 Processor

Pros: Very stable. 4M Cache. Great overclockability. Runs extremely cool overclocked.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Running at 2.66 GHZ on an Asus P5LD2 R2.0 MB with 2GB OCZ Gold PC5400 memory in a Cooler Master Cavalier 3 case with stock INTEL cooling. Added an 80mm Enermax fan on the side of the case. RAID0 utilizing WD 1600YS drives with a WD740ADFD drive partitioned to a FAT32 pagefile partition and a NTFS scratch disk partition. With Prime 95 on both cores, temps are 28C idle and 46C full load at stock voltage on the processor, read with Asus Probe. Room temp at 72F. This processor will overclock much much more but I have no need as I do not play games. LGA775 heatsink mounting is very sturdy if you don't play basketball with your computer as the ball!! All items in my system were purchased thru Newegg.
