Summary: I purchased this on sale and didn't install it till I had all my upgrade parts ready to install. Installed my new CPU a AMD 8350 and installed the cooler which by the way was very easy to install. Turned on my system and almost fried my new CPU. The cooler didn't work!!!
Summary: This cooler is working very well with my AMD FX-8350. I currently have it over clocked to 4.2 and turbo to 4.8 and even underload I.E(gaming,multitasking, streaming) it stays cool and doesnt ever reach temperatures over 50°c.
Summary: I installed this on a ASUS P8Z77-V LX LGA 1155 motherboard. The instructions were kind of sketchy, so I resulted to doing an internet search for help. The base that goes under the motherboard is slightly crooked but makes no difference after you attach it to the top piece. It is pretty quiet.
Summary: in the description it says "Quite Edition" however this thing has a pretty cheap/ loud fan. Luckily i had a Corsair ultra quiet fan laying around that i switched it out with. work great and easy install.
Corsair H55 will cool your CPU Big Time, Thoug the fan is loud

Summary: I wanted to try liquid cooling for the first time on my sister's PC (This was one of my first builds) I was noticing the stock cooler for the AMD Phenom II 955 was struggling to keep the CPU at 45 C' idle and going 69+ C' when gaming. The noise was so annoying that I decided to replace it.
Summary: I have nothing negative to say about this product itself. It works great and keeps my system a lot cooler than the stock heat sink. My only gripe is the instructions. They definitely leave something to be desired.
Summary: my first dip into the watercooled world wasn't so fantastic. Don't get me wrong, it has allowed me to use my RAM slots that my old heastsink/fan blocked but the cooling difference is not that noticable and there was no real noise difference.
Summary: So loud! The fan! i have ordered an extra quiet decent Corsair fan to replace it but shouldnt of had to..... shame as otherwise brilliant product. idle temps not much change but load under OC is muchhhhh better!
