Pros: Surprisingly quiet for being maxed out
Cons: Maybe a little loud for those wanting 0 noise
Overall Review: So I wanted an air cooler for my i9 10900K CPU. The reasons I didn't want to go liquid are due to problems I have had with past liquid AIOs. I've had motherboards destroyed by bad AIOs, and shockingly Corsairs is been one of the worst brands to deal with. So I decided a while ago to run with an air cooler for my new build.
And, with my i9 10900K overclocked, and this cooler maxed out, running the most CPU demanding game I have (Star Citizen Alpha 3.9) with Chrome, Outlook, Excel, and other programs running in the background, the CPU peaked at 52c. In my opinion that is incredible for an air cooler operating on one of the newest chipsets that is overclocked.
Pros: -Likely works fine
Cons: -Shipping hasn't moved for weeks
Overall Review: The order was placed over a week ago, and the shipping hasn't updated once since then. No signs of it moving from where it currently is in 7 days. Will be issuing a refund as soon as it gets here. Find a better shipping partner.
Pros: Long enough to put your computer basically anywhere out of the way.
Overall Review: I wanted my number computer out of the way of my desk/work area, and this worked perfectly for this project!
Fits every cable I have running to my PC, including a thick extension cord.
Smelled bad coming out of the bag, and made my hands oily after handling.
Overall Review: I wanted to run all of my computer cables from my actual desk to a location over 10ft away, where the newly built PC would be on display. And this did a perfect job at hiding all the lines running from my desk to the new PC.
Pros: It looks pretty good.
And I got it as a free gift.
Cons: It just wasn't much fun. If I wanted a resource, economic, simulator, I would have gone with a Civ game. But for a WAR game, there sure wasn't much WAR going on.
Overall Review: Got it as a free gift, so I guess I really can't complain. But if I had to pay for it....well I just wouldn't pay for it.
