Install trouble - but, working.

Summary: This cooling unit arrived and was installed today. Installation was not smooth - there was one manufacturing flaw and a minor design issue. The screw holes on one of their brackets did not line-up with the screw holes on their heat sink (i.e. doesn't involve the case, motherboard or CPU). I ended up having to file the hole larger to get things to line-up.
Summary: Liquid CPU Water Cooling System is extremely good. First of all, it reduced my CPA temperature making my pc boost faster. My pc is more smooth. The installation was kinda trick in first place but I did not have problem after watching 3 minutes installation youtube. Thanks for listing this item!
Summary: It is almost impossible to install this cooler given the directions, written in 21 (yes, 21) languages on one sheet of paper. The instructions are also incomplete. The screws that mount the radiator to the fans/case strip very easily. If you have never assembled a closed loop cooler before, don't buy this. It will probably work well once I find some more screws, but I'd never purchase this again. If this is your first time buy Corsair or Antec.
Summary: I have had the Seidon 120XL running for a week now, and it is quiet, and my CPU is running frigid! Running the fans at 1000 rpm via my fan controller Plugged the pump straight into a 12v connector using an adapter..
Summary: For a first timer it was too easy to strip the threaded alumimum fan mount. I opted to only use one of the 2 fans to allow for room for the SSD. The system runs quiet and has kept up with the most demanding applications.
Summary: Only had it for 1 month and it already started making weird clicking noises from the pump ontop of the processor. Up untill then it was wisper quiet though. I am sure i just got that 1 in a thousand deffective, but i still can not give it a good rating.
Summary: Dual fans, huge radiator, and copper heat transfer plate. With some IC Diamond thermal paste this cooler does a great job keeping my PC running right at room temperature regardless of the load I've put on it so far. The only problem is that it is very large and the second fan will likely block some of your RAM slots. If you're looking to run 64 Gb you might have to find an alternative placement/mounting method.
Summary: This product works well, however it suffers from poor instructions and an installation that would benefit from extra hands. It was difficult to install for one person, particularly in the matter of securing the cooler to the base plate to fasten the copper cooler head to the processor. This was barely doable for one person; a second person to hold the back plate in place would have been an enormous help.
