CORSAIR Hydro Series H50 120mm Quiet Edition Liquid CPU Cooler - Intel Only (CW-9060006-WW)
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great Product, definitely recommend it! 08/03/2011

This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H50 120mm Quiet Edition Liquid CPU Cooler - Intel Only (CW-9060006-WW)

Pros: There are too many good things about this cooler in general. I got it for 60$ at a different store (you know, the OTHER One that competes to this site?) about two-three months ago.

I can say, It is a great cooler. I have my AMD Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition @ 3.9Ghz/1.472V And my maximum temperature is @ 39C Load, which is far behind the maximum temperature for AMD Processors. Although, I have this as push/Pull Setup. I have it mounted in the 3x 5.25" Drive bays in my Antec Performance one P180 Case to reduce main system clutter. That, and It works a bit better that way anyways. The Tubing isn't Long at all really. It's about 1' 3" In length, so I say that you find a good spot for it.

Cons: The only cons I could ever think of, are the following:

#1: Not long tubing, so you can't use mid/full towers as an Intake in an appropriate 120MM fan spot on your case.
#2: The Fracking waterblock. It's HUGE. It takes up much more space than it needs. It really kills chances for mounting the Radiator at the top of a case doing push/pull, unless the space between your motherboard and the top of your case is huge, then it's no problemo.

Other Thoughts: If, you want to see what I'm running as a fourteen year old, here ya go:

AMD Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition @ 3.9Ghz/1.472V's
(2x2GB) G-skill Ripjaws DDR3 1600
EVGA Nvidia Geforce GTX 260 Core 216 Superclocked
MSI 880GM-E41 Motherboard
Rosewill RG530-2 Power Supply (4x 12V Rails, Green Power, 80+ Gold)
320GB SATA II HD (Samsung 7200RPM)

AOC F19s Piano Black 18.5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Attractive Design mainly. It's a good monitor if you are a budget gamer. It doesn't give you 75hz +, but who needs 75+ FPS?

Grab the monitor. It's great. It gives you 1366x768, which is mid-range resolution. If you grab two (which I will be doing soon) you can have a good gaming setup. 1366x768 is very comprehensible, especially if you don't have the best Graphics card on the market. If you do, grab at least two of these !

Cons: Only VGA, but that is to be expected as it would most likely be used with a factory PC for average use.

AMD Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition Callisto Dual-Core 3.1 GHz Socket AM3 80W HDZ550WFGIBOX Processor
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Great Processor, but doesn't unlock for me :( 07/10/2011

This review is from: AMD Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition Callisto Dual-Core 3.1 GHz Socket AM3 80W HDZ550WFGIBOX Processor

Pros: Now just let me say, this is my first AMD Product. I like it really. Although, I do feel empty without Intel and Nvidia, but I guess the void will fill itself up. I'm running this right now @ 4Ghz on a Asus M4A785-M Motherboard, with 1.55V's under a Corsair Hydro H50 CPU Cooler. I have yet to see temps above 44C under full load. This thing runs BF:BC2 Maxed out with smooth framerates (Never seen it drop below 30 when fraggin' bad guys) - I do recommed this processor for the game, if you chose to do a disk authentication if you don't have an SSD, And you have a DVD-ROM installed. If you have an SSD Paired with this, I will guarantee you that this will FLY with the SSD In the game. I can tell you, I've seen people get 4.3Ghz (only one recorded in the world, and I'm #8 in the world to Get 4Ghz recorded). So, I totally recommend this product, even if it does have C2 Stepping. On air, If you have a NH-D14, I'm pretty sure you can get to 4.1Ghz Max. Totally recommend it!

Cons: Okay, here are just a few, nit-pick things i have to HATE about this processor:
C2 Stepping - IT KILLS the overclocking potential, and this is a BLACK EDITION!

To get to 4Ghz, you have to set the Voltage to 1.55V's - Not sure if I got a great batch or not, but It takes some POWAR to get it stable. Also, the two extra cores are disabled, but I sorta expected it.

Other Thoughts: Here's my build -
Asus M4A785-M Mobo
Phenom II X2 550 BE @ 4ghz, 1.55V's w/ Hydro H50
HD 4870 1GB
NZXT Vulcan
Ultra LS600 (600W)
Samsung SATA II 320GB HD
Bunch of Fans.
