Pros: - Endless options for RGB lighting
- Pump is extremely quiet compared to other AIO's I've used (even at max speed)
- The fans are aesthetically pleasing. I can't speak for the performance as I replaced them with ML120 Pro's
- The tubing is long but that could be a pro or a con.
- Braided tubing is very uniform
- Keeps my 4.8Ghz OC'd 6700k (delidded) at 1.455V under 75C during 24hr stress test. Idles at around 25C and peaks Low 50s while gaming.
- No issues with CAM software. It works perfectly fine for me and I am using Windows 10 Pro. Though I only use it to mess with lighting and control pump speed. I plugged my fans into my mobo's fan headers instead of the PWM headers coming off the block.

Cons: - As others have stated the tubing coming off the block will interfere with Ram Slot 1. This was very unfortunate because I bought it to install into an ITX build in my Nano S just to find out it wouldn't fit. I bit the bullet and moved up to a Maximus VIII Gene in a Define Mini C for Ram clearance. It still interferes with Slot 1. But at least I'm able to use both sticks of ram now. Was it worth it? HELL YES IT WAS! This cooler is beautiful and whisper quiet even under load.

Other Thoughts: - Lots of Pro's and only ONE Con. That one con can be a deal breaker for a lot of people, it wasn't for me though because I only use 2 ram sticks. Those using 4 will have problems and will either have to compromise or forget about this cooler altogether.

ASUS GeForce GTX 1080 8GB ROG STRIX OC Edition

5 out of 5 eggs You get what you pay for 06/14/2016

This review is from: ASUS GeForce GTX 1080 8GB ROG STRIX OC Edition

Pros: This card runs extremely cool. I never passed 70c on any of the games I played. I play on 1440p just for reference. I set the fan to run at 40% and it isn't audible, at all. The card boosted to 2066 without touching anything. On Overwatch I never passed 55c lol. My 980 Ti used to hit around 73c in Overwatch. The card is gorgeous. Best looking one out of all the non reference models in my opinion. All monochrome and RGB. That's RGB done correctly. They definitely fixed the sag that the 980 Ti Strix had. This card holds up much better.

Cons: At higher frames I did experience coil whine. But it's strange, the coil whine goes away after awhile. It only happens in the first few seconds. Usually with coil whine it doesn't go away until you close out whatever you're running that's causing the whine, but in this case it goes away on its own? Never experienced coil whine like that before. Very strange. Not worth taking away an egg because like I said, it goes away in less than 10 seconds in. Something to note, the ROG led on the backplate sometimes look lighter than the rest if the LEDs on the card. This is due to the white plate thats over the LED I believe. For example: if I set the color to a mint green the republic of gamers and the leds under the card will be the mint green and the ROG logo on top will be a slightly lighter green. This doesn't happen on all the colors just some. Just something to keep in mind. I did get have an issue with GPU Tweak or the Aura Gpu software. After installing it and restarting my computer. I got multiple BSOD when booting my computer. Ended up having to restore my computer to a period before I installed the software and the BSOD stopped. Maybe I'll try a different OC software. Not sure if it was the Aura software either.

Other Thoughts: If you got the money, buy it. No buyers remorse here!

Phanteks PH-LEDKT_M1 Multi Colors LED strip 1m Specified for Phanteks Enthoo Luxe Case upgrade

Pros: - Magnetic strip A+ for that
- LEDs are Bright... Too bright... (see cons)

Cons: These LEDs are as bright as the sun I swear... lol I had them installed in my Evolv ATX Tempered Glass and it was blinding. Also doesn't help that the LEDs are visible no matter where you mount them in this case but even at an angle where the LEDs aren't visible, it's super bright. I had it plugged into the case so that I could control the colors and effects with the button at the front I/O. Maybe there's something you can do to change the brightness, though I couldn't figure it out.
