Summary: Didn't know I had a sub-par CPU cooler until I tried to render a ten minute kind of effects heavy video file in Adobe Premiere Pro. It got half way through then a warning came up tell me the CPU was running at 86 Celsius. I tried a few different things, cooler room, after resting, but when it shut down to protect itself, I knew it was useless.
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: Just got this today. Two day shipping with Prime was nice. I replaced an Ultra ChilTEC cooler that had finally died on me after 3 years of heavy use and constant overclocking. After dropping to stock volts and clocks it still was running over 50C idle and over 62C while gaming. Installed this bad boy and instant 20 degrees lower.
Summary: OK, so my techie teenage son was the one who actually bought and installed it on the gaming computer he built from scratch. He's replaced most every piece it seems, as he progresses along the learning curve of custom designing computers.... But he really likes this water cooling fan! In the summer, the bonus room where he has his computer can run upwards of 8-10 degrees warmer than the rest of the house, and he was worried about the high temps (125 or so) he used to have...
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: 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...
