CORSAIR Hydro Series H60 (CWCH60) High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler

2 out of 5 eggs Overrated - Returning to Air Cooling 11/17/2013

This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H60 (CWCH60) High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler

Pros: * The kit is all-inclusive for water cooling your CPU

* Setup is easy to install

* The mounting kit supports a good variety of chipsets

* Temperatures were 3C better than regular air cooling on a 2500K processor in my rig (3C more after adding another fan for push/pull config)

* The system looks good and you can boast about water cooling your computer to aspiring nerds

Cons: * My H60 totally failed after 2 years and 2 months

* The fan is mediocre at best and system requires another to perform at it's best (which increases the cost further)

* The mounting bracket is not the best quality, and can be easily stripped

* The performance is limited to your ambient room temperature, meaning regular fans can compete very closely

*The cost is over double that of outstanding performing fans

* It contains liquid... in a PC that potentially costs thousands of dollars = recipe for disaster and a hassle if you have to move a lot

Other Thoughts: I bought this cooler in July of 2011 and waited until now to review it. The long-term value of this is poor compared to other air cooling options. My unit failed after 2 years, but the points in this review remain valid regardless of that failure.

For overclockers who *must* reduce CPUs an extra few Celsius in temperature: this might be an "okay" option if you're lazy... but you should just create your own watercooling rig if you fall in this category

For everyone else: do not spend 2-3x more on this than air cooling. The Cooler Master Hyper 212 can be had for $24 at the time of this posting and is nearly the same in performance without the hassle/worry of watercooling.

3 out of 5 eggs Good idea, but contains some issues 07/19/2011

This review is from: Logitech G510 Keyboard

Pros: None

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have a fully functional Saitek Eclipse II keyboard, and decided to spend $120 on this keyboard for MMO gaming. I'm disappointed in the purchase and highly prefer the feel/function of the Eclipse II over this keyboard. The rubberized type feel of the Eclipse II keyboard feels much better, and I've yet to double type or miss a key when typing a single time on that keyboard. I've made those errors more than 3 times during this 1 paragraph.

Pros: None

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: My Razer Diamondback mouse broke after ~4 years of gaming with it (right mouse button stopped functioning correctly). This G400 came out a week after that so I made the switch. So far, I like the comfort of the G400 much better. However, the performance difference is unnoticeable. If nothing better comes out, then I'd buy this again if needed.
