This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm
Pros: Can't get a core beyond 58C (i7-3930K) with Prime95. The day before, it went overheat shutdown while 7Zip was working on a large zip archive.
Fans are quiet enough at low loads. A little noisy at high load, but I liken it to putting lake pipes on a hot rod. It should sound like it's powerful.
Cons: Install is not for the faint-hearted. I did it myself, but helping hands would have been good. The radiator just barely fits in my full tower case without getting into the tall stuff on the motherboard.
The instruction manual says to hook the fan power to a supplied Y-cable that plugs into the pump unit so that the H100 controls fan speed. HOWEVER, the supplied cable and the fans both have female ends. No pluggy. I hooked the fans to the CPU FAN terminal on the motherboard, it seems to work just fine that way.
I wish they had offered fans with lights, with optional colors. The top of my box looks dark now. I used to have two blue LED fans up there.
Other Thoughts: I may one day get a couple of fans that match my lighting scheme and perhaps move a little more air than what was supplied. Then again, maybe not.
I did take everyone's advice and cleaned the factory thermal goop off. Used Arctic Silver 5.
I recommend this one highly based on first-day results. I'll post again if that changes.
This review is from: Dual 5mW Green and Red Laser Presentation Pointer
Pros: I make presentatons often. Usually I'm handed the PC remote with a built-in laser pointer. My hands aren't shaky at all (yet -- I'm reeling in the years though). But those lightweight plastic things make me look shaky. They're too lightweight to control. This thing is HEAVY. My light point is extremely steady, and movements are fluid because of the weight. I'm VERY pleased.
Cons: No cons.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: 8mm wide faceted tungsten carbide ring with mother of pearl inlays
Pros: It's elegant, resists scratching when dropped on concrete, and elicits compliments more than my diamond-n-platinum wedding band. Sizing is exact. My wife wears the thinner companion ring.
Cons: No cons!READ FULL REVIEW
