Summary: I have the H80 and it does a fantastic job of cooling my CPU. I have an i5 2500K, which I overclocked to 4.5GHz. It keeps the temperature stable around 70C at full load using Prime95 to stress test. I ran Prime95 for an hour and the temperature started at 30C at idle and ramped up to about 70C at full load after 20 minutes.
Summary: Corsair makes great products and the H100 Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler is no exception. It's pretty easy to install and can be done in no more than 30 minutes depending on your case and wire work. As for preformance it's efficient and holds up to the hours of game play and overall use and stress that I put on my PC day in and day out. I do have 1 flaw that I found kept it from bring 5 stars, the stock Corsair fans that came with the unit were pretty loud.
Summary: Pros: First off let us start with the looks. I set this up with a push/pull system running Rosewill 2100rpm fans with blue LEDs. This thing makes my HAF X blue edition that much sweeter!It fit in there no problem and was practically made for it. It looks infinitely better than some massive twin air tower in your case. To top it all off, I could still leave my 2 200mm fans on! Now the part that matters, performance.
Summary: This cooler does an awesome job. It took my over clocked AMD Phenom II 955 at 3.8 GHz from 35* idle to 28* with my Hyper 212 +. Then while running prime95, my temps went from average 49* to about 39-40*. But then a couple days after installation, the fan controller went. I was cycling through the fan speeds when suddenly the LED just went out. The fans still ran, and I still received the temps I mentioned before, but I could not control their speed.
