Pros: Bought this guy from a local computer shop.
Looks like the picture on the box I guess?
Cons: First issue-
Only reads 1 stick of RAM in the slot furthest away from the CPU. If I plug in more than one it just restart loops. I've manually changed the voltage, speed, timing, and slot to no avail. I think the RAM slots are not reading.
I have to clear the CMOS everytime it powers down or restarts or it goes into a restart loop. I have updated bios and cleared it and ran the default bios. Fail fail fail.
Other Thoughts: I doubt this is the rule and more of a unfortunate isolated incident where I end up with a defunct board.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H90 High Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 140mm
Pros: Works as advertised.
Cools decently enough for a moderate overclock.
Has mounts/holes for a push - pull set up.
Mounting hardware for pretty much any CPU you wanna use with spare parts to boot.
I think its a good lookin cooler.
Runs fairly quiet compared to other all-in-one coolers.
Cons: CPU installation was more painful than putting together Ikea furniture.
Mounting on to the case was even more difficult.
The equipped thermal paste was less than satisfactory.
The equipped fan was noisy and didn't push air well.
Corsair log in the center didn't line up quite right and slants in one direction which is annoying to me, maybe its my OCD acting up, I would have fixed it but just getting the hardware to work together was a serious undertaking so I decided to skip it and attempt to not look directly at it.
Other Thoughts: I plan on paints some pieces to make it look good with my case. We shall see how it goes.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Huge case. I mean really big... I have the corsair C70 vengeance and this absolutely dwarfs it.
Lots of room inside.
Very modular and tool less take down makes for easy installation.
Lots of room for air flow, especially with the HD cages removed.
Lots of holes drilled in ever section for easy cable management.
Used 140MM Corsair fans all the way around and 0 issues on install.
Cons: As the case reaches the bottom there is sort of a reverse incline that makes a V and the base. Sometimes its difficult to get a screwdriver in there to get anything done.
Expansion bay covers are fastened down WAY to tight. I thought I was breaking something or miss threading the screws trying to take them off.
No eggs deducted for me being a softie with the screws.
