CORSAIR Hydro Series H110 Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 280mm (CW-9060014-WW)
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Better than expected. Fits 2011v3 CPUs. 05/26/2015

This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H110 Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 280mm (CW-9060014-WW)

Pros: -Fits my new DIY build, using an Intel socket 2011v3 CPU just fine.
- quiet operation
-keeps the CPU running under 50 degrees C even when all cores are running at 100% of CPU utilization.
- I would recommend to others

Cons: -needs a bit of space to mount the whole cooling assembly and dual fans.

Other Thoughts: - I did not double check my measurements and after it arrived I thought I might have to scrap my build and using this cooler.
- But luckily my metal nibbler tool cut the proper sized square hole in top of case. I inserted the CPU cooling block portion of this cooler through the hole and secured to the CPU.
-my build has the cooler portion hanging over the front of the case by about 1/4 to 1/2 inch. But it secured well and operates just fine.

ICY DOCK MB155SP-B FatCage MB155SP-B 5x3.5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

3 out of 5 eggs Fatcage is 1/2" too fat! 05/11/2015

This review is from: ICY DOCK MB155SP-B FatCage MB155SP-B 5x3.5" in 3x5.25" Hot Swap SATA HDD Cage

Pros: - works fine
- great design

Cons: - Either cut slots into the sides of this device or figure out some other way to trim a 1/2" off its width!
- I have at least 7 different makes/models of PC chassis at my place of work. NONE of these chassis would accept this fatcage UNLESS I bent their built-in slide rails in the 5.25" bays, into a flat, vertical position.
The unit is just too wide! Manufacturer should have stopped at 4 bays and made this unit so it COULD fit into a standard ATX computer chassis, either mid-tower or full-tower.

Other Thoughts: Functionally and aesthetically a nice device.

Points off for the fact it just won't fit into standard PC chassis WITHOUT some chassis 5.25" bay area modifications.
