Was great while it lasted

Summary: My 1 egg rating is NOT a reflection of Newegg it is a reflection of the poor customer service of Coolmaster . After 8 months of not, I repeat NOT, hard use this pump dies. It is covered under warrant however it took Coolmaster 2 months to inform me that no replacement would be issued because they...

Summary: Overall I'm disapointed. I bought this cooler to replace my old H80 who started to make weird noise recently and that I lost the serial number to RMA, but it was still quieter than this 120V. Maybe it was defective, but even if it was quiet, it wasn't powerfull enough to cool down my CPU.
Pros: -Thin Radiator -If blue is the color of your build, the led will be nice
Cons: -I had a noisy pump -I had a hard time with the installation, the waterblock would not fit properly on the CPU so I had stupid high temps within seconds of turning my PC on. I had to cut out cardboard spacers to put under the backplate so the block would make appropriate contact with the CPU -Onc...
Pros: -No leakage -Came with all parts neccessary for different mobos -Instructions were clear enough
Cons: -Mounting solution for LGA1150 is fairly difficult. -When torquing down all the screws, the pins designed to stay in place let loose and spin freely, so the mount isn't fitted securely. -90C temp under almost full load on a 4790K.
Summary: this pump falls under the "you get what you pay for..." quote as its cheap pricing is noted by the pump noise. the kit itself has good parts but the pump itself not a great quality. gonna take 2 eggs off for pump problems, and 1 egg off for being faulty right out of the box.
Pros: it was a good pump, compact to fit 80% of cases as its a standard 120mm fan size (plus 20mm for the radiator tanks) it kept pc cooled, and fairly decent price for the parts with a good fan.
Cons: the moment i started the pump it rattles and clicks violently, sounds like ball bearings hopping in the case. very noisy pump, it runs very rough and jittery from the rattling noise and you can hear the water surging threw the pipes. system still runs but is too scared to use, need a full refund ...
toasted my computer - pump failed at 4 months - voided my 3 year computer warranty

Pros: for a short time i was happy that it silenced my computer significantly
Cons: now its silenced forever. wish i could give it a rating of less than 1. When I took it to the place I purchased it from, they said that because I added this inferior cooling system, it caused the components to fail thus killing my computer. I now have a lovely black breadbox valued at over $1000.
