  1. And this is why I put a copy of my digital purchases on Nas.
  2. The C1 is a downdraft cooler and the h5 is a tower cooler. And they were both on an overclocked R7 1700, 3.9 at 1.35v.
  3. After using Cryorig C1 and H5 in the same system I can say the C1 is not even close. It's more comparable to a 212. The H5 keeps my CPU at 65C during a stress test. The C1 was at 80C.
  4. Update: Yesterday I received an ML240L RGB from Cooler Master. They still have not replaced the RGB controller and at this point I don't care. It's been almost 6 weeks from RMA open to receiving a partial replacement (3 failed parts, 1 replaced and 1 returned). I am beyond frustrated with Cooler Master at this point and will never use one of their products again. I purchased an NZXT H400i and a Cryorig H5 Ultimate this week. I've rebuilt my system into this case using this cooler. My build no longer has any CM parts in it. I plan on borrowing somebody else's hardware so I can demo how my old motherboard is broken. I don't think this old motherboard will break a CPU. It's just very unstable with higher power draws at this point. I am going to give away all my CM parts because I have no interest in using them. I'll probably give them to somebody local looking to put together an mATX build.
  5. Just so people know I'm not crazy and making stuff up, I've attached some censored screenshots of emails I've received today. Also, another update. I received my broken motherboard back out of nowhere today with a note saying it's not broken. If I have time between some work and yard work, I'll be putting together a video on how it is broken this weekend.
  6. And yet another update. I just got another email saying they shipped me something to another rando in Colorado. I guess they're just slowly sending everybody else my parts now? Or maybe they're sending me their CRM database one contact at a time?
  7. Holy crap. Amazing new update. I just received a "your package has been sent to you" email from Cooler Master saying they they shipped my stuff to some rando in Texas instead of to me (I live in St. Louis, MO). And now I cannot even login to the cooler master support site because it just throws an internal server exception.
  8. Update: They're sending me a return label and shipping me more hardware.
  9. They didn't even You didn't say they wouldn't even send me back the same product I sent them. I shipped them an ML240L-RGB, then sent back an ML240.
  10. Update: My lowest expectations weren't even met. I'm simply blown away at this. I shipped cooler master an ML240L-RGB, the RGB controller that it fried (cooler master's RGB controller) and the motherboard that it fried. Cooler master shipped back a different AIO (the master-liquid 240, no RGB), no RGB controller, and no motherboard (not even the motherboard that I sent them).
  11. Update: I just received a notification that a replacement part is on it's way. Throughout this process I have only received automated responses (received, in process, shipped, etc). I have no information on whether they are replacing the other parts their product broke. Service experience so far: Poor. I'll leave another update when see what they shipped to me.
