Out of frustration and time, I decided to Post for HELP with this topic and problem.
ASUS, CORSAIR, COOLERMASTER, DEEPCOOL, ENERMAX, EVA and the list goes on!
Reading the reviews and some articles. The only consensus I could come up with was that basically, none of them have a good software program for monitoring and controlling the fans and pump speeds.
My DEEPCOOL Castle 360EX, well as far as I can tell, it stopped working. The CPU pump head light stops a few days after install and then a couple weeks later I get a Check CPU on POST message and feel the pump head is really hotter than usual. Yeah, that's right, I touched it! UH HuH, I felt it with my hand.
Because it couldn't boot to the BIOS, so I had know other way to check the heat. Yes, I had felt it before when I was checking temps.
I really liked the DEEPCOOL! It looked good and once I figured out the graphic picture instructions and a little support, very little, I was able to verify I had everything installed right. I think maybe the Armoury Crate program didn't do anything or did. I looked at Program to control everything. But most seemed overly involved.
I had everything set to standard. I haven't gotten that far in my build yet for over clocking. Still trying to get past BIOS problems and VROC RAID setup problems.
QUESTION, it seemed to me most thought the ASUS something suite worked better than the newer one. Does it?
Can we get posts from community members about their COOLERS and the pro's & Con's they have.
Oh and any good work arounds. to share feel free! PLEASE if this topic is covered in another thread, point me to it.
Go do crazy some place else, we're all stocked up here!
