Pumped failed after four months

Excerpt: Did the job for four months before expiring without fair warning. CPU began overheating resulting in frequent shutdowns. In fairness, compared to other cpu coolers, it is the least expensive. I ended up going with a Corsair H70 as it has a 5 year warranty. So far so good.
Summary: My cooler arrived working, so that's a plus. Well it's working for now, but based on how often I hear about pump failures, I expect my PC to combust in a month or so. A water cooler looks so much neater than an air cooler, and it provides more space to mess around on the motherboard.
Summary: Installed this on a GA-770T-USB3 with a Phenom™ II X4 925 and ti worked great for 3 months before going kaput this past week. It seems the pump failed, as one line was still cool while the other was red hot. It was the final straw in a brief and tumultuous relationship with this cooler.
Excerpt: Works great, and sells on here for pretty cheap. Pretty quiet fan and completely silent pump (which actually has me nervous if it was even working, but all is good). My old air cooler worked ok getting on average about 25°C under normal use, 40-50°C under load, but with this CM Seidon I'm getting...
Summary: This is the first liquid cooler I've purchased and I couldn't be happier. I put this on an AMD FX 8320E. With the stock heatsink and fan it ran at 70c under load, and with this cooler it dropped the temps down to 36c under load!
Summary: Easy to install if you know what you are doing. Mounting the fan to the radiator then the radiator to the case only takes a minute or 2. The only hang-up is having to remove the motherboard to put the mounting bracket and screws underneath it.
If you pick this up, expect to replace the case fan.

Summary: Would be 5 stars but the case fan it comes with is LOUD. I replace a very large horizontal dual-fan CPU heat sink with this liquid cooling unit and the single 120mm fan it comes with ended up being much louder than all 4 of my previous fans combined. It's really loud.
After a stress test I made the CPU go up to almost 100°C to see how long it would take to cool it back down and it was back unde

Summary: Pros : It does work very well on maintaining my OC CPU around 45°C. After a stress test I made the CPU go up to almost 100°C to see how long it would take to cool it back down and it was back under 55°C in just a few seconds (I know that is pretty standard for water-cooling but I was still very...
Summary: Owned this for just a couple of months. Keeps my highly overclocked A10-6800k APU running at a cool 34-degrees Celsius at idle, and only 51-55C under load while gaming. Only problem I have seen so far is that occasionally you can hear coolant flowing though the system as small air bubbles are...
