Pros: Extremely quiet, moves a ton of water, adjustable speed makes bleeding the system much easier.
Cons: I set it on a thick piece of foam that came with my graphics card to eliminate the vibrations, had to heat my 7/16"ID hose to get it on
Overall Review: Bigger than i initially thought, but easily fit inside my gigabyte 3D aurora chassis
Pros: Patriot makes great ram, I've used several of their kits so far in several different builds.
Overall Review: Ram won't always be set to the rated speeds at first. All you have to do is set it to the speeds given by the manufacture, so stop taking off points for ram not running at the rated speed.
Pros: My card actually runs at 630MHz instead of the stated 612MHz. Idles at 51C with room temp at 26C with an e6850 in front of it in the loop.
Cons: The end of the card past the water cooler is kinda bent but it still works great.
Overall Review: Runs Crysis with everything maxed out at decent framerates and Battlefield 2142 is over 100fps at max settings and 1600X1200 res.
Great Sound Card
Pros: Using it with an EVGA 680i and XP pro, no problems. No increase in fps but they didn't go down so i guess the x-ram helps. With the surround sound settings, I can actually tell excatly where someone is shooting in Battlefield even with 2.1 speakers.
Cons: Sometimes I don't get any sound when I start BF2142, restarting the comp has always solved this problem.
Overall Review: Amazing improvement over onboard even before I configured the settings. Excellent sound from Logitech Z-2300 speakers.
