Summary: I live in a hot environment, and my PC would constantly overheat in the summer months, but not so now that I installed this. Very good cheap and easy upgrade to provide the liquid-cooling technology that keeps thing manageable. However not all cases will have an exhaust port on the rear of the case that is suitable for this, especially OEM computers from big name brands, this is more suited to a do-it-your-selfer like myself. So check on that before you commit.
Summary: By far this is the best coolling sistem i have used. I Open 3 at the same time (Dota 2 Specting a Game, Assasins Creed 3, And Silkroad Online With Bot activated) and it wont let my CPU come higher that 38C°. I even some time Listen to music from youtube videos and never even seen it go to 40C°.
Summary: Installed the cooler on the MO Board and it works great. Installation was pretty straight forward. Instructions helped a little but it went quickly and the cooler seems to be doing a great job. The fan that came with the cooler is a high speed fan so it is a little loud but it doesn't bother me.
Summary: A: User needs a seperate fan hookup to make it work(not just motherboard power) B: User needs to know that screws are not long enough for a phenom AMD processor(They bent my board to get em in, still works, but it is wavey now) I don't know the reason for the springs, assuming expandability with heat, but they are too strong and actually bent the whole board. C: it does work, if it fails I am mailing my whole Computer back to amazon, thanks guys!(that's for the 3) P.s.
Summary: I was using a Cooler Master Hyper TX3 for my AMD FX8350 and was getting temps from about 22C up to about 70C. I noticed a major improvement immediately after installing this cooler. My idle temp dropped down to about 7-11C and my max temp under load(with air filters dirty) is now only 40C. If my air filters and radiator stay clean this never lets my cpu go above 33C. Leaves a little room for overclocking but I would get the 240mm version if you want to really overclock.
Summary: My first foray into liquid cooling. Had a CPU that was operating at no load at 60C. Had ordered a Cooler Master V8, but Amazon was out, and I decided to go with the Seidon. Very easy to install, though the directions themselves could use some work. After installation, my no load temp has dropped to 41C. Even at full load, running a game, the temp only gets to 57C at this point. On full load before, I'd often hit 90C. Can't say enough how pleased I am with this product.
Summary: Snapped Right onto an Intel Core i5 3350p. The back-plate is solid and of good-enough quality. Be advised, use the smaller screws for the water block attachment. (the larger ones will not screw in completely.) Make sure that the Water Pump power is plugged into an RPM controllable slot, so that you can run it on full rpm's constantly. This will keep the computer cool without the fans. (quieter). No thermal-paste pre-applied, but IT DOES INCLUDE A TUBE OF THERMAL PASTE.
Summary: This cooler works as promised. The reason for not giving it 5 stars is that you would think a Cooler Master case would not need modifications for a Cooler Master cooling system to fit. But, alas it does. I had to drill mounting holes about 1/4 inch from the stock holes. Other than that this system is quiet, and keeps the processor very cool.
Summary: I bought this for my LGA 1150 4670k CPU and MSI Z87 mobo. It doesn't advertise that it will fit this combo, but if you move the bolts just a hair on the brackets, it fits snugly and perfectly. It's super quiet and keeps things at a good temperatue I guess, but I don't monitor my temps. I'm confident it will perform just fine if I start overclocking, but I will update my review if I have any issues.
