Very Nice Water Cooling
Pros: This Water cooling system is very good keeps my AMD 3500+ OC 2.640 @ 1.6v very coooool. I skipped useing the anti-freeze in the package and got the ThermalTake Big water anti-freeze because i like the glow it gives off when the blue led fans hit the tubes. And for the temparatures they are extremly well. Playing COD2 and BF2 (all on high) my cpu struggles to hit 34c! and it idles around 24c and I saw it once at 18c!
Overall Review: The manual is very detailed and easy to follow. I have my water cooling system inside my case and it fits perfectly. I have a Aspire X-Plorer case n which the door shuts perfectly with the system in the 2 bays. Many ppl take off their door because of the knob on the front. But if u have a Aspire X-plorer or Navigator you should be fine. Also if your thinking about a first time water cooling system or a system to overclock with, this is it. Add the ThermalTake Big Water green liquid which they have on newegg for X bucks. and your system will stay nice and cooling. The lights are nice, It has a feature where it flashes through all the different colors on the LCD reading. And under the Knob is a little tube which shows you the water moving and that also changes color. Anyway i said enough, Get this Water Cooling system IT IS awesome and saves u a lot of $$ from the other ones.
Very fast for its price
Pros: This is a wonderful card, i got it last year in late November when it first came out. Card has done mircales for me from updating from a fx5200. I can play all current games with good FPS besides Cod2, in which i average around 35fps on 1024x768 res with medium settings which isnt too bad since the top of the line cards now dont get any higher than 60fps on high settings. And on BF2 i can play with 60 fps constant with high settings at 1024x768.
Cons: Only 128bit memory. If it had 256bit it would be one of the best cards out.
Overall Review: This thing also Over Clocks pretty good. I got 585mhz Core and 1.18ghz memory. Its a good card to hold you for a little while longer. Im waiting till the summer to see the next top of the line card before wasteing money on the new 7800gtx's right now. If your wondering what type of system i have to get those frams here it is. AMD 3500+ OC 2.57ghz MSI Neo2 Platnium 2x512 Crucial Balistix ddr500 XFX 6600gt (of course) Aspire X-plorer w/ 550watt Aspire PSU Kingwin Aquastar AS-3000 water cooling. Pretty good system for the time being. Also the card run's nice and cool from 40c idle and 55c load.
