Pros: -Fast -Stable -Relatively cool temps
Cons: -Price -The water block/pump is a nightmare and a half -Poor assembly instructions for the cooling loop -VERY bulky radiator and fan combo -Cable management possible but looks sloppy with a central point on the board with wires coming out.
Overall Review: I love the Vishera. It is a great chip. The only thing that I have to say about this particular product (not the chip itself) is the pump was a bear to assmble. The instructions for this cooling system are pictures with written portions so dumbed down that a 5th grader can understand it. However, the wording is exceedingly vague and the component list fails to mention the two pieces of plastic that fit on either side of the retention ring and hold the screw tight to the assembly. Now I'm sure that this oversight was seen as "well they're building their own computer, they can figure this out." WRONG. This was my first exposure to water cooling. A complete component list and DETAILED instructions, not vaguely worded one liners and single picture per stage ones would have made this go a lot faster in the assembly stage. Let me save the next buyer some head ache; You see those two plastic oval pieces? The one with a claw looking portion goes on the bottom of the retention ring. The thinner one with a clip goes over it and through it into the bottom plastic clip. THEN and only THEN do you push the screw through it when it tells you to prep the rentention ring. If you are like me and triied to figure out its use by seeing if the screw fits in it... Well then take it back out and follow the above steps for that particular portion of the instructions. It took me thirty minutes to get the screw undone from the plastic piece and then into its correct configuration. Hopefully, my above experience can save you the hassle. Over all... I would say that I am middling to highly satisfied with the product as a whole and I would recommend this to serious pc enthusiasts.
