Rattling and clicking pump in less than 2 months. Now I have to mess with a delidded CPU again, thanks Cooler Master.

Summary: Purchased this to cool a delidded 4770k in a Silverstone SG05 m-ITX build. My chip is running at 4.5GHz 1.27 vcore It's keeping it cool at 29C idle and never really breaking 75C under load. It's been less than 2 months since I purchased it and the pump is clicking; sounds like something is rattling inside my case. It's extremely annoying and this pisses me off.
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.

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: Well, it would've been an easy installation if not for the radiator brackets/screws included, which are apparently *extremely* easy to strip. For the most part the hardware seemed pretty high-quality/well thought out and the actual installation process is simple/straightforward, but like a number of other people when it came to actually trying to mount the radiator/full unit stably my experience was an absolute nightmare; 6 out of the 8 brackets were totally unusable for...
