Intel Core i7-4790S Haswell Quad-Core 3.2 GHz LGA 1150 65W BX80646I74790S Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4600
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Low energy, low heat, yet fast CPU. The integrated video is enough for regular work, no need for dedicated video card (I have a separate gaming machine)

Cons: The CPU fan is really cheap. The low heat CPU doesn't need much in terms of cooling, but the fan isn't as quite as it should be, the blades a a bit exposed (careful with cables), and the construction feels very flimsy.

Other Thoughts: Be careful to not have any cables near the CPU fan, its own cable can get stuck in the blades.

4 out of 5 eggs Couple of issues, but pretty cool 09/15/2012

This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H70 Core High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler

Pros: Dropped the temperature on my Sandy Bridge E by over 10C. Despite the bad installation instructions, once you figure it out, it is pretty easy to install.

Cons: Bad instructions is the first thing to notice, i.e. plastic knobs go on the screw holes on the bracket before you install it.

I am removing an egg because this unit comes with only a two pin connector. Effectively, this means that the fan will be blasting at full speed all the time, make sure to pick a quiet fan.

Other Thoughts: I am getting high 60s temperature on 6 core SBE at full load in a relatively warm room (maybe 77F). When I mean full load, I mean MATLAB with 12 threads working at 100%, this is a lot more than the regular games would do.

The radiator may not fit in all boxes, mine is pretty big, but you should read and measure for your box.

Cooler Master HAF 922 - High Air Flow Mid Tower Computer Case with USB 3.0 and All-Black Interior
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Big, heavy and stable, lots of air flow. Even without the back 102mm fan, it keeps my G/CPU as cool as the old small box with 4 fans.

Cons: Big and heavy. Biggest problem is that the 3.5'' trays should have been shifted 0.5 - 1'' to the side. As is, there is barely enough room for the HDD cables. The HDD are also not as stable as if you had used screws directly to attach directly to the box.

Other Thoughts: Make sure your cables are long, especially the ones for motherboard and CPU power. This is Mid-Tower, but it is only an inch shorted than a standard Full-Tower and the case is much bigger than most Mid-Tower cases.
