Summary: I was looking for a cheap and effective way into liquid cooling, and I had heard of many a great things about Corsair. Their liquid cooling line-up was easy to grasp, and I decided this would be a good first buy. Installation was much more difficult than I expected; the manual that came was merely a cheat sheet of information on how to assemble it, and I ended up getting this thing screwed onto my Mobo in half the pieces.
Summary: This has kept my system very cool for a few months now and still going strong. I have used it for gaming, video encoding, virtualization, while word processing downloading etc..... All at once and kept cpu cool. I did bog my system down abit , however not the H40s fault.
Summary: This is a great product,very easy to install, Have read other reviews that this cooler will not fit an LGA775...Do not believe them...this fits a 775 perfectly, just make sure you have the clips installed correctly with the screws near the inner circle ( the first diagram on the instructions show them installed towards the outer edge....Purchased this to replace a failing Foxconn Foxglacier liquid cooler....Temp before...73C...after installed.... 28C...
Summary: Great product. Only one issue is the instructions, not as clear as they could be. I've never installed a water cooler before, so I tigtned the ring that holds the device to much before I put the device in place. I didn't realize the ring actually puts the pressure on the pump, I figured the pump was a twist lock kinda deal. Anyway, after I figured that out it was very easy to install and still running great.
Summary: I got this on the Impression that it is better than my Thermaltake Frio. Little did i know it's not! The Frio outperforms this Expensive piece of Unit. My AMD phenom II 1090t is OC to 4Ghz 24/7 i want to get a little more using this cooler but, that is not gonna happen since it's not in any way better than my Frio. My Ambient is 21-22c Constant. With the frio 30c Idle 51c Load , With the H80 33c Idle!! 54c Load!!
Summary: At first, you look at this product and seems like a quality item. When you read the instructions you notice that they have quite a few mistakes. And then, though you are led to believe that you are going to get an AMD3 motherboard bracket, guess what? you don't. You only get the quick disconnect AMD3 bracket and the Intel. Then I went ahead and installed the radiator and cooler with the noisy fan.
Summary: This cooler is a great addition for anyone who wants to dip their toes into liquid cooling without jumping in head first. This self contained unit provides cooling which is on par with some super premium air coolers, but costs 1/3 as much. I would suggest picking up some extra screws (These will work Zinc Plated Steel Machine Screw, Pan Head, Phillips Drive, #6-32, 1-1/4" Length (Pack of 100) so you can mount your own second fan on it (push and pull setup) I did not use...
