Loving my new Galahad AIO
Pros: - Once I got the orientation figured out, it was pretty easy to install. - RGB looks great. Several reviews say the LEDs on the pump don't work so I'll be keeping an eye on them to see if they fail. - Noticeable drop in temps when running Cinebench R23 (Avg temp of 98C with beQuiet PureRock2 Air Cooler vs 86C with Galahad AIO). - Silent, silent, silent. I can only hear the fans when they ramp up based on the fan curve I've set them on. During normal use, they're virtually silent.
Cons: - Kind of annoying that the holes on the radiator for the fans to screw into don't line up exactly with Lian Li's own Unifans when they're in the daisy chain config. Attached a chain of 3 Unifans in addition to the HSP ones it comes with to get a push-pull config but couldn't attach screws to all 12 anchor points as they didn't line up perfectly. Was able to get 4 in so in the end it's fine but... - So many cables. It makes sense given that there are 3 fans and the pump needs cables too but maybe Lian Li can rig up a Unifan style Static pressure fan? Give us that daisy chain capability to reduce overall number of cables.
Overall Review: Overall, this AIO is awesome. It looks beautiful, it runs quietly, and it keeps my temps under control even when overclocking my CPU and running benchmarks. I'd recommend this AIO to anyone. I'm just really annoyed that it doesn't work line up perfectly with Lian Li's own Unifans. Seems like an oversight and it's a bit annoying but nothing that can't be overcome with some patience.
Works surprisingly well!
Pros: -Keeps lenses from fogging during heavy movement games. -Has 2 levels of air circulation, comfort mode and sport mode (more air flow).
Cons: Because it's air blowing through the headset, my eyes felt a little dried out.
Overall Review: I was definitely a little skeptical of this before I received it but the reviews I'd read elsewhere were really good. Once I received it and installed it I was surprised at how well it kept the lenses from fogging up. Previously, playing Beat Saber or any other motion heavy game would fog up the lenses in about 15-20 minutes. With this thing, they didn't fog up at all. The only real downside is that it made my eyes feel a little dry due to the air constantly blowing over them. But it's a trade-off. If you use your Quest as a workout tool and find it fogging up a lot, this is definitely worth looking into.
Great fans! Power Connector not what I expected
Pros: - Fans are very easy to install (once you have the right power connector). - They run pretty quietly. - Lights look great. - Solid airflow.
Cons: - Does not use a 3-pin power connector. - Uses molex power connector. This was not clear AT ALL from the item description. Luckily most power supplies come with this type of connector. - Unless you have an adapter, I don't think these fans can be connected directly to the Motherboard.
Overall Review: Overall, I'm very pleased with these fans. They run pretty quietly, they look great and were very easy to install (Include 4 screws per fan). The biggest downside in my opinion is that these fans DO NOT use the standard 3-pin connector that allows you to connect your fans to the motherboard. Instead, these require a direct connection to the Power Supply via Molex connector. Not an issue ultimately as my power supply came with the correct connector, but as an unexpected "feature" it was pretty annoying at first.
