Finally an aio that can tame my 5800x
Pros: Great performance versus a few other brands.
Cons: Installing inside a small case can be a fun task
Overall Review: Very impressed with this AIO. Dropped my 5800x from the verge of throttle(90c) down to a nice and easy to manage 80c. My other aio would be 90c in cinebench and the pump ate itself alive. Maybe rad mounted pump wasn't such a good idea or I got a bad aio but I also hated the old aio wouldn't bolt through the mainboard. This EK not only mounts the way I like it performs tons better.
Bright and easy install
Pros: Easy install
Cons: I expected these to be the extension type not the 3 off one. It made me rethink my strips but everything worked out perfectly and I am very happy with how things turned out. Last batch I bought strung together and was easier to wrap around things like case side etc. With my parts choices I was able to put 2 points in the corners of my case and add all 3 light strips in concealed areas.
Overall Review: Good product but mid purchased as I wanted string together type. Still worked out great and I was able to rethink my plan and get these installed.
