CORSAIR Hydro Series H80i High Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 120mm
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Cools an AMD A10-7850K easy and doesn't break a sweat. I was thinking that the Kaveri would die if OC'd to 4.5GHz... but, that was not the case and it idles around 32C and goes as high as 48C when running prime 95. Using stock clocks; I'd get 28C idle and 43C when running the stress tests.

Cons: Price?
Installation, like with all AMD systems, isn't easy. I smothered the thermal compound all over the CPU before getting it locked in place. However, I think that helped cool the CPU more.

Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for. I wish that it came with the sp120s that have the adjustable rims, but it's fine. I bought additional case fans to use.

NZXT Source 210 S210-001 Black SECC Steel, ABS Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Fits 8 HDDs inside.
-Room for H80i
-Has additional room for fans
-Good airflow design

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Would have been nice if the case came with conversion mounts/brackets for the 5.25" bays. That way I can house more HDDs.

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-2133C9D-16GXH
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It'd pass post...

Cons: BUT it won't go up to 2133. RAM is stuck at 1333 which is a bummer, but oh well. Probably a dud.

Other Thoughts: I placed these into three different builds trying to see if they would be able to reach 2133 on any of them. None of my systems were able to reach 2133 stably. I tried my G.Skill Tridents on the other systems and they were able to reach 2133 on all three. So I think these are duds.
