rather happy with the purchase
15 July 2014
Summary: Purchased this for my new diy system. Installation is no problem as every items you need is included. The installation sheet of paper is not very clear especially on where the connectors from the fans and pump should go on your motherboard. My motherboard is a Asus Vanguard B85 and takes me a little bit of time to plug in the connectors. I connect the fan to the cpu fan socket and the other to one of my fan connectors. Overall, rather happy with the purchase.
Summary: Excellent for AMD OC, I OC'ed my AMD FX-6300 from stock 3.5ghz to 4.5ghz modifiying vcore to 1.4v using MOBO Gigabyte 990fxa UD5. The results are amazing Idle Temps are 35°c, with prime95 stress test 5hrs wonderfull stable @ 60°c, every workers stable. I also use AIDA64 stress test for 24/7 and never get errors 100% stable.
Summary: Needed something that was semi quite and would be able to use it for decent overclocking.... This works great. I have only had a few noise concerns which almost sounds like possible air bubbles in the system, seems to go away if I reboot. This has only happened 3 times in the last month so I will need to monitor it more.
Summary: loud in a small office when cranked up... BUT... took it apart... extended the hoses 15 feet each way thru a wall to another room... and it rocks. I know... not what it is designed to be.... but thus far the pump is keeping up and having the heat and noise elsewhere is fantastic.
Summary: I have a intel 3770k and my temps are 38C. My first free maintainence CPU cooler and I am not disappointed. Easy to install and recommend to anyone who wants to step outside stock cooling. There is heatsinks and fans after market for cooling then theres this for liquid cooling. The liquid is a non-conductive liquid that will not damage your hardware if it leaks.
Summary: I have a Thermaltake V3 Black Edition Case with a Gygabyte Motherboard for AMD Processors. I tried to install this cooling system and when installing the radiator, is being restricted by the roof of the case.
Summary: My ambient temperature is alwayS around 30C ( I live in the Caribbean) , my core I5-2500K would run run at around 60 degrees and 80 while gaming , after installing this magnificent cooler my pc idles at 29C and runs 45C playing Call of duty Ghost . while gaming the fans get a little noisy but not enough to bother me, otherwise the system is very quit now , the fans come with rubber gaskets for vibration damping and installing the cooler was straight forward and very easy...
Summary: Works like a dream no major issues i have a FX6300 and it runs around 24deg celsius with out heavy load and 32deg when gaming. For my own personal preference I will be changing the stock fans that it came with as their max rpm is too slow to have a perceptible change when I adjust the speed with the fan controller on my tower. That's just me wanting to see how low I can get the temperatures to run.
Summary: This was my first build using liquid CPU cooling. This unit is great. It fits my Antec case perfectly and hooks up to my Z87 Pro board and I7 4770K without any clearance issues. My CPU stays at a cool 73-75 degree range. I'm happy.
