5 out of 5 eggs Win 7 10/04/2011

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit

Pros: -Quick install
-Looks nicer than XP
-Love the new taskbar
-Doesn't treat you like you know nothing about computers like Vista did
-3 monitor extended desktop setup was a snap
-Boots up on my rig (see other thoughts) in about 20 seconds flat
-GPU drivers installed like butta

Cons: -Had trouble figuring out how to instal on a RAID 0 array (problem was solved after finally making sense out of my mobo manual)....really just a PEBKAC error though so I can't fault MS or take off an egg. Had been 6 years since my last custom build so i was rusty.
-Doesn't make my corned beef hash in the morning?

Other Thoughts: My Rig:
-Asus Sabertooth 990fx
-AMD 1100t BE
-2 x HD6950s xfired
-2 x Seagate Barracuda 500gb in RAID 0
-4 x 4gb Vengenace Corsair 1600mhz
-Thermaltake TR2 1000w PSU
-LiteOn 16x DVD burner
-Asus 12x BlueRay Burner
-3 x Acer 23" LED backlit 1080p LCD displays

5 out of 5 eggs COOL!!! 10/04/2011

This review is from: Antec Kuhler H2O 620 Liquid Cooling System

Pros: -Keeps my 1100t at below 40c with prime95 blend test at stock, 51 max with a 4.2ghz OC
-Can't even hear the pump running at all, had to put my finger on it to make sure it was running at first and felt slight vibration, it's def pumping though.
-Great option if you are using Corsair Vengeance memory with the tall heat spreaders as you won't run into clearance problems like you will with most air coolers
-Looks pretty darn spiffy in my case
-Hoses are very easy to deal with....super flexible without compromising liquid flow rate

Cons: -Instructions aren't all that great (I expected worse tbh from the reviews)....just goto youtube and you'll have it figured out in 5 minutes
-Only comes with one fan that isn't great (not a bad fan by any means....i actually re-purposed it for my HAF X VGA duct) two CM Excaliburs in push/pull on it atm (and I didn't have to buy extra screws to do this....just use two screws on each fan....they will support the setup just fine).

Can't take off any eggs really for these cons...I went into the purchase knowing both of these things

Other Thoughts: GREAT cooling for the price....if you are not scared of water cooling (I still don't know about piece build kits but these all in ones seem to be really solid.....tried for a week to find anyone complaining about a leak with these and couldn't find a single case)

Thermaltake TR2 RX TRX-1000M 1000W ATX 12V v2.3 /  EPS 12V v2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Has more than enough power to throw at my xfired 6950s running at 6970 clocks as well as my 1100t running at 4.2ghz....I'm sure I have plenty of power to spare as well for if I decide to do trifire
-Looks great in my case
-Quiet as all hell, certainly can't hear it over my 6950s at idle or the dual 120mm Excaliburs I have in push/pull on my Kuhler 620
-Hardly warm with everything under load

Cons: -Not completely modular but thats no biggy with my HAF X case that has the PSU cable cover

Other Thoughts: Great power supply if you are looking to be running a power demanding rig.....also great future-proofing
