    A CPU cooler

    If we we were to say that I was to run a overclocked AMD CPU, would a cryorig h5 be worth saving for over the h7? Going for moderate-high overclock, such as the one I have. Maybe push a little more. And also generally speaking, not on specific CPUs

    Corsair CS450M or CX600M?

    I've heard about the CX series being unreliable and potentially harmful to SSDs. Is the CS series any better? Both are the same cost and both have sufficient wattage for my system, so it is just a matter of which is higher quality.
