This is my first experiance with liquid cooling of any type, so far I am pleased with the H80. If I had to complain I would say that it is a little on the loud side. I have noticed that my office does not get as hot as it used too when I was running my older gaming system.

On a side note, I must again compliment DSO for their great customer support. It is best in the business.

Congrats! Awesome

How's the wireless card performing? Just wondering since they really seem to vary when under desks, etc.

My office is about 55' +/- from the router and my signal seems to be about 3 out of 4 bars.  I am using a Cisco Systems dual band "N" router.  So far I am happy with the card.
