This review is from: Antec Kuhler H2O 620 Liquid Cooling System
Pros: Quiet and decent cooling when it works....
Cons: I bought this cooler last year and it was working fine, then all of a sudden pump died so I RMAed it. Ever since then after 3 RMAs I can not get a product that functions correctly. You see asetek makes these coolers for Antec. I seem to now have v4 of the 620. And the one thing I notice which proves it is not up to par is the surface is NOT flat, its what they called "bowed" which means not good contact with CPU surface which leads to insanely high temps.
Other Thoughts: RMAing againREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: All the features of a top of the line board for a great price, under 200$
Cons: Asrock 990fx boards all seem to have an issue with vrm throttling. And to get a better overclock you also have to provide decent cooling for mosfets.
Other Thoughts: I would have gave it 5 eggs if it werent for the vrm throttling. The llc is quirky as well. Noticed same thing on fatality board I had before.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Unbeatable price performance ratio. Especially for gaming or video editing. Dont let the sintel zealots fool you. Yes in most benchmarks they win but at much more cost. Many of these visheras can overclock to 5 ghz with good cooling.
Cons: Power consumption is a little high which means this chip can get toasty when running full load.
Other Thoughts: Chip I got is a soso overclocker got it to 4.7 ghz but I did not like temps. Running at 4.5 24/7READ FULL REVIEW
