Solid Performance for the price. It's a beast!1/1/2019 5:07:59 PM

Pros: - Paired it with a Liqtech II 280 and Grizzly Kryonaut. Runs at 38-40C in "ultra quiet mode" during day to day activity and 55C under full load. In a more aggressive fan profile, I can run day to day activity at 32-35C. - It's fast. Multi-threaded performance is great. Single threaded performance is solid as well.

Cons: - No major issues to date. - It puts out a lot of heat under load, but I knew this would happen. On the bright side, it's a nifty space heater.

Overall Review: - For those that have heat issues and are using Arctic Silver with the AIO, you will need to step up to newer, high-end TIM such as Grizzly Kryonaut. I've used AS for my last 5 builds and attempted to use it on this build. After giving it two weeks to break-in, the CPU ran hot and routinely peaked around 72C. Kryonaut resolved the heat issues.

Works at Advertised Frequency1/1/2019 4:27:08 PM

Pros: Completely stable at rated Frequency using XMP on x399 Aorus Extreme w/ Threadripper 2950x

Cons: None **UPDATE** A couple weeks after purchase, the RGB on one of the DIMMs started sticking (black and red). I switched it around to the other slots and the RGB was still sticking. Then, I reflashed the RAM and it started working; however, I had to reflash the RAM upon every startup. I contacted Corsair customer service and got the "RGB is not guaranteed to work on your motherboard" story. I then wondered if it were physically sticking. I whacked the RGB side of the stick on the back of my desk a couple times. It has worked as normal ever since. I knocked off one egg for Corsair's customer support.

Overall Review: The memory sticks are tall and may interfere with certain air coolers. Works great with my AIO liquid cooler.

Solid Cooling...Bad Fans11/23/2018 9:49:00 AM

Pros: Solid cooling temps. I received bad Kryonaut TIM and had to use what was left from my Arctic Silver 5 stash. Using ultra quiet mode on my x399 Aorus Xtreme, temperatures range from 35C-45C during normal activity and peak at 70C under 100% CPU load. I'm impressed considering how little TIM I was able to apply. When I apply new TIM, I anticipate much lower temps.

Cons: The fans are terrible. One is already wobbling badly and making grinding sounds unless I drop it to 40% speed.

Overall Review: I prefer 140mm over 120mm fans, so I went with this model. Hopefully the problems from the first gen models have been resolved...

Very Loud under Moderate Load3/22/2012 10:39:54 PM

Pros: It works...for now.

Cons: The fan is extremely loud under a moderate load. It is by far the loudest PSU I've ever owned. The fan will not slow down unless I shut down and restart. After searching OCZ's forums, it is a known issue.

Overall Review: I haven't decided whether to RMA or toss it in the garbage and get something else.
