IN WIN Maelstrom Black SECC(0.8~1.0mm) ATX Full Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Updated review 06/04/2010

This review is from: IN WIN Maelstrom Black SECC(0.8~1.0mm) ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: A while back I bought this case for my first PERSONAL build. Right out of the box it made me sit in awe. It was a massive, beautiful case with high quality, somewhat quiet fans.

The reason I'm making this update is because I saw someone comment on their trouble installing an H50 cooler. Well, I've got an H50 with an extra fan on pull and it fits great. Mind you I had to mess with the positioning, but it was well worth it!

Regardless, if you want to buy this case, feel better in knowing that the H50 WILL fit in this case WITHOUT needing to take off the 220mm side fan.

Cons: No cable management, but, no side window so it's really not an issue.

Other Thoughts: This case is HUGE, it's big but much quieter than the an Antec 900 case set on low OR medium.

CORSAIR Hydro Series H50 Quiet Edition Water / Liquid CPU Cooler. 120mm
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Ok, I wrote a review on this product a few weeks ago (about a week after I bought it). I didn't really pay attention to the temps after I saw they were getting a bit warm for an $80 cooler (46C). So to my surprise when I opened core temp when I started playing Just Cause 2 I noticed that the max temp I got was only 36C! After I saw that I tried other games like Bad Company 2 and I only got 40C! A few weeks ago I was getting 46C. So, max load temps at 100% on my Phenom II X4 955 BE @ 3.2 Ghz is 43C. The lowest I've seen it get is about 26C. I don't think I could get any better performance than what I'm getting now. This cooler is outstanding!

Cons: None, the installation process was SO EASY. I was shocked when i finished, I almost felt nervous that I skipped a step because it when by so fast. Buy this cooler if you're as paranoid as I am about temps.

Other Thoughts: I'm using the Push/Pull configuration with an extra Antec 900 case fan set on medium. as I write this review I'm getting 26C, incredible. I'm also using Arctic silver 5.

This cooler is quiet, cheap for a water cooler, and worth every freaking penny. buy it, you won't regret it.

CORSAIR Hydro Series H50 Quiet Edition Water / Liquid CPU Cooler. 120mm

5 out of 5 eggs Phenom II X4 955 03/26/2010

This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H50 Quiet Edition Water / Liquid CPU Cooler. 120mm

Pros: Great cooler. Pretty sure its the best I'll ever get. It brought my Phenom X4 955 from 53C 80% load to 46C 100% load. I idle at about 29c, even seen it drop down to 27 every blue moon. Keep in mind my CPU is clocked at 3.2 Ghz. I'm using Arctic Silver 5 ATM. SUPER QUIET! I'm using the push/pull config with an extra antec case fan and it makes a HUGE difference. Go buy an extra fan with the screws, trust me, it's worth it.

I've gone through a lot to get a cooler that could meet my high standards, this thing hits it dead on. Did I mention it only get to about 43-45C after playing BC2 for a few hours?!

Cons: Installation was scary, but I followed the instructions and it was actually a 5 step process. I recommend this cooler to anybody that is paranoid about temperatures and just want to be safe while playing games, rendering 1080 movies, ect.

Trust me, it's really not as hard as it looks, people!

Other Thoughts: Ok, so most of my friends would call me crazy, however, I consider myself an enthusiast! I was getting 33c-53c on my stock cooler with stock thermal. I hated that, so I bought a CoolerMaster N520 from a store that rhymes with "dies" as a "quick fix" to my cooling problem, MAN was it loud. It got me about 29c-47c, then for no reason while playing BC2, it spiked ALL THE WAY TO 53C! Finally said, "enough is enough". took it apart and returned it, put in DOUBLE the money I paid for that cooler and got the H50, never looked back.
