Pros Good improvement on cooling. Great customer service
Cons could use a bit bigger rad.
Summary Bought the cooler after enjoying trouble free cooling from the less fancy Coolit unit. The Vantage looked great inside my clearsides Silverstone TJ10 case. For cooling it did very well never getting much above 68C during intense 100% cpu testing.
Had a minor problem with it and Cust Support sent me a new one within 3 days.
Pros Running quit, LCD Screen show the info of Temp, rpm. Easy to install.
Cons pricy, quality
Summary Got this on a special sale, cost the same as the Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H40, but get the fancy LCD screen showing all the info, like Temp, RPM, etc. Arrived just next business day after I put the order online. Can't wait and installed right way. Turned on the power and found nothing happen. The fan was not turning, the LCD Screen did not turn on too. It's a DOA. Thanks to the NCIX customer's service, and offer me one time free shipping to back to NCIX, and send me another one. The new one works perfect. this company properly works for Corsair.
Pros Facile a installer. Lors de l'achat il était en spécial c'est un bon achat.
Cons un peu d'expérience
Summary J'ai pas eu de la difficulté a installer le system. La température de mon i7 3.4 se tien a 48 C. Je pensais qu'il serait un peu plus bas que ça genre a 42 C. Je vais rajouter une fan en avant du cooler supplémentaire pour essayer ce que sa donnne.
Summary Got his puppy just the other day and used it for a special K build. Cools my i5 likea strippers shower. I P M-nd this beast and got it for 68 bucks! It sure looks sweet and is pretty quiet unless you are overclocking, but even then it is not too noisy. It,s very easy to install. Hopefully it lasts and dosen't spring a leak.
Pros Keeps CPU super cold maintenance free LCD display
Cons not possible to extend loop
Summary This is a great cooler for the price. I love the LCD display in my clear sided case, but if you don't have a clear side, it's probably an unnecessary expense. It is great that it is maintenance free, but unfortunate that the loop cannot be extended due to this fact. It runs my i7 950 super cold and I have it running at 4.0GHz
Pros Quieter than many air coolers, easy installation, 2 year warranty, unique display on processor block, very decent cooling performance, easy to install second fan for push/pull
Cons a bit expensive
Summary I installed this in my machine with a Noctua NF-P12 pulling and the stock Vantage fan pushing.
I have my i7 930 OC'd at 4.05GHz (193*21) idle is 38-43c, full load is 73-77c running intelburn for 5+ hours. I had overclocked to 4.2GHz and the temps peaked at 80c - not bad at all. These temps are with the Vantage's stock thermal interface material.
Some reviews mention the volume of this fan at 2500rpm, I have not had the fan reach those rpms. The highest was 2150 - and the volume was noticeably higher, but not as loud as some reviews make it sound.
Legit Bottom Line: The Vantage looks to be well made, runs nice and quiet, and at around the $100 mark with a 2 year warranty could give a user wanting to try water, but leery of building a custom loop, an option for less than a full-on custom water loop.
