DEEPCOOL Gamer Storm CAPTAIN 240 CPU Liquid Cooler AIO Water Cooling Ceramic Bearing Pump Visual Liquid Flow with Dual 120mm FDB PWM Fan Rubber Coating Deep Silent Support LGA 2011-v3

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Looks cool, especially with the lights
Easy to install

Cons: One of the 2 fans went bad for me about 8 months after I bought it

Other Thoughts: I love this cooler don't get me wrong, it worked well for a long time, but it doesn't do well when one of its fans stops working before a year is even up. And with the CPU i'm running, that's VERY bad. Sadly I have to get a new cooler because I can't even find a place to just buy one fan for it, and am worried about what else may fail on my cooler now.

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Nice system, smooth, fast

Cons: Came with a dead CMOS battery

Other Thoughts: This system was supposed to be a christmas present for a relative who's not technologically savvy. Was going to be a great gift, until I opened it, got it all set up the way I wanted it, and.....system time keeps resetting every power-down. This caused errors in windows update and many other small issues. I know it's not a newegg issue, but a dead cmos battery is pretty serious which is why we lost 2 eggs here. Thankfully I was able to get around it, as the cmos battery is welded to the MOBO...just installed a program to keep the windows time updated at startup...

MSI Radeon R9 380 DirectX 12 R9 380 GAMING 4G 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support ATX Video Card

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Strong, fast, beautiful
It's taken everything I've thrown at it so far without filching or even running hot. I set the fan speed via the MSI gaming app, and it keeps the system running cool and is quite quiet. Every so often I have to run the special feature to super cool the fans, but that's a rare occurrence. Yesterday was the toughest day for it. Ran Shadow of Mordor on it, highest graphic settings for about 7 hours, not a single issue.

Cons: Big. This card is a beast, so if you're looking to buy it....CHECK SPECS FOR SIZE. MEASURE YOUR TOWER AND CHECK SIZES. I knew I wouldn't have a problem with my Thermaltake Commander tower, but for some of you, CHECK SIZE.

Other Thoughts: This card is simply beautiful. I upgraded from an old Sapphire Raedon R7 to this glorious piece of majesty, and the difference in speed and power was noticeable right away. It is big and bulky, but, not a problem if you know what you're doing. Actually, having this card even helped me reorganize my cables in my system. And for the price (I got it in special for $20 less than normal), it is worth it.
Didn't use the rebate though, I've never had luck with the rebates.
