This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H90 High Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 140mm
Pros: I've always been a little skeptical about moving to a liquid cooler and based on some of the reviews was a little nervous with this one, but it's been in my system long enough that I don't think it's going to be a problem. It's currently running on an AMD 760k and temps on idle are usually under 30°C and can sometimes run up a little under 50°C on load. This is working great in a pull configuration though I may switch to pull to see if it performs any better. I've coupled this with a Cougar 140mm fan inside of the Bitfenix Prodigy, who could ask for anything more?

Pros: Read/write speeds are fantastic (I don't have any solid numbers at the moment). I needed a smaller hard drive for my two boys, something to use as a boot drive for the OS. This really fit the bill.
Other Thoughts: If you're looking for something to use as a boot drive and for minimal storage then this is the way to go. I had heard a lot of good things about A-Data, and they certainly do not disappoint.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I bought both this and the ASUS C60M1-I for my HTPC this spring and both have been great. The temps stay low and the whole setup runs quiet. Out of personal preference I replaced the philips screws with thumb screws, but the side panel slides on and off with ease. The side panel fan runs as the intake, and the fan in the 300W PSU runs as the exhaust. I know others have complained about cable management, but it hasn't really been an issue for myself. Once the optical drive is in the case I just tucked any excess cable underneath that (not everyone will have this option due to differences in location of the power connector). Overall this is an awesome case for a Mini-ITX HTPC build.
