Summary: This is my first liquid cooler. I put it on my i7-4930k 6-core processor. I have had it rendering full bore (All cores running 100%) for 3 days now locked at 3.90 Ghz. All CPU's are holding temps between 51-57C. What is strange is that when the system sits idle the core temperatures actually rise because the pump is not circulating as fast.
Summary: I attached this to a i7 4770k and my old stock fan would over heat with any overclocking. This thing allowed me to overclock to 4.5Ghz stable. My temps are 85C max load, and 25C low work load and idle.
Summary: I am a computer enthusiast, and the group of friend that's I have are all computer enthusiasts. While I received some slack for not buying all the parts and building my own mega cooler for around $200-$300 I decided to try this one first. Noise Its extremely quiet, barely new it was there and quieter then my old water cooler.
Summary: Purchased two of these from different retailersUnits are easy to install. BE WARNED - this unit may not fit your case, make sure you check all measurements before ordering. The only downside to these units are the cheap and nasty fans that Corsair supply. Shame on your Corsair. Both my units have noisy fans and I see this is a very common problem for these units. Corsair customer service is a complete joke.
Summary: The Cooler was easy to install and worked right out of the box. when you read the book it does say works best when both the fans or set to the intake position. however they are at the top of the case so i was a little hesitant about that.
