Was worried at first, took precautions, and after 3 months, am very happy.

Summary: Bought this back in August and was a little worried about leaks and such with my new i5 haswell rig. So, I wrapped the tube ends in paper towel and tied it up with some metal wire and put a piece of cardboard on top of my graphics card, just in case. Installation was easy, cleaning off/applying more thermal paste was cake, and now my CPU clocks to 4.5ghz and is staying around 60C, which is plenty low for haswell chips.
Summary: I had a Coolermaster GeminII S524 in an HTPC case(NMEDIA 5000b) and with a Phenom II 955 overclocked to 4.0GHZ I would often reach or exceed the 62 degree max temp under heavy load. I bought this cooler to reduce noise and lower temperature. I drilled 4 holes on top of the case so I could mount screws through the perforated 120mm hole. I am now seeing temperatures reaching a max of 51-53 degrees and a reduction in noise.
Pros: Cheap AIO, Low Profile, Better Then Most Air Coolers, PWM Fan, Pump is quiet
Summary: Took my overclocked FX8350 from idling at 38C down to 15-17C and it really never gets over 40-42C. I initially had a little pump rattle, but when I rearranged the fluid tubes to a straighter fit, that went away. And the noise level - let's just say that if you have ever used the FX8350 stock fan or lived next to a busy airport (FX8350 owners are nodding their heads here), the quiet will be very welcome. I'm going to retrofit everything to these coolers.
I can now play under heavy load without worrying about overheating my CPU

Summary: This has been a Godsend! Before, I had insufficient cooling on my AMD 8350 CPU. I had my computer overheat and shut down 3x prior to getting this. I have the overheat notification set at 149 degrees. It never gets over 133. I'm only running the one fan on it currently. May try second fan soon just to see. When I see my machine running 30 degrees cooler than before, I'm a happy camper. Played Battlefield 4 for four consecutive hours the other night without a hiccup.
Summary: This was the first liquid cooling system I've tried for a computer. The Instructions were in picture only but it was not hard in matching the right attachment for the board and following directions for installment. The only hassle was handling the radiator while installing the heatsink to the Mobo and the Mobo to case. Other than that, the tubing does not take up any room and makes the inside more spacious, allowing more air to flow (which is a good thing).
Summary: Just installed this CPU cooler in my HTPC rig Cooler Master Elite 130. Using the two Cooler Master 120mm Silent blue LED fans that I bought in a pack on Amazon as well I set it up Push/Pull from the front and the mounting was very easy in the case. The hardest part was to screw on the mounting rings on the CPU cooler pump unit.
Summary: I got this cooler on September 30th, and came straight in from work to install it. Installation wasn't too difficult, just time consuming. Three things to note with the installation though are, 1. Make sure you dry fit everything so you know exactly where the cooling lines will run and the fan cables; 2.
