Summary: This is one cool cooler [pun intended]. Using the stock cooler on a AMD FX 8350 the CPU was hitting 70C under load. The hottest it has been with this cooler is 50C under the same load conditions (long running video encoding task, 100% CPU use) and with the same thermal paste (Antec Formula 7).
Excerpt: Got this for an I5-4690k and have it OC'd to 4.5ghz easy and getting 50c temps running dying light/witcher 3 on ultra on 1920 x 1080 with this.It was my first liquid cooling install and before it would fit i had to use the fan in case and adapter that came with the case so it has 2 fans on it after...
Excerpt: Just bought this for my budget upgrade to my rig. It's currently keeping my i5 4690k at around 45c under load. I was expecting slightly cooler temps but I can say I'm satisfied with the results.
Big, but very cool, amzing temperature difference.

Summary: This cooler worked as expected. I had a 4 core F2 3.3 GHZ unlocked AMD CPU that would not cool from air coolers provided by Tiger-Direct, the stock one would idle in bios about 48 degrees C; after trying to load Windows on a newly cloned Hard Drive the system would alarm having reached 70 degrees C.
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: I purchased this in July of 2014 for around $50. The pump is silent but the fan is incredibly loud. I didn't want to purchase a new fan because the cost would have totaled as much as a Corsair liquid cooler and it seemed silly to put money into a cheap product.
Summary: I replaced the stock cooler on my Intel i5 4690k which I overclocked to 4.5 Ghz. At low CPU load I was running at 45-50 C and under heavy load it was running at 70-80 C. With the Cooler Master Seidon at low load Im running at 28-35C and heavy load at 50 C.
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.
