Summary: Overall this is a really good cooler. I had a heck of a time getting my computer to boot after installing the backplate, as it kept shorting out the CPU. After taking everything apart & realigning multiple times I finally got everything working. As an experience IT tech I found this very frustrating & time consuming. My overclocked AMD Phenom II X6 1100T runs at a cool 28 degrees. No complaints there.
Pros: - Quiet, - Good cooling
Cons: - Issues with backplate shorting out the CPU on my Asus Crosshair VI Formula. Had to readjust the backplate multiple times to get it to boot properly, - Screws need to be inserted at a bit of a angle to line up with the backplate
Summary: I replaced my other aftermarket air cooler with this water cooler. It is 10C cooler under load. Installation is easy although look at U-Tube how-tos and not the documentation that comes with the cooler. The documentation is not helpful. Also, it doesn't tell you to check the bios to make sure the fan power header you plug the block into is running full voltage and isn't set to vary the fan speed.Other than that the product works well for my aplication.
Summary: Instructions are pretty easy, if you follow them. I forgot to put the back plate on, with a case with no back plate access. Big hassle to undo and then redo everything. Used it on an Intel i5 4770k Haswell CPU mounted on a ASRock Z87E-ITX in a Fractal Design Node 304 with a MSI Radeon HD 7850. It fits, if just. The reason I mention the video card, is that it only had about 1mm of clearance on the left side of the rad.
Summary: Using in Corsair 550D with i5 3570K. 4.2 GHZ 1.2/Auto Volts m 70C Very Quiet 4.5 GHZ 1.25 Volts m 80C Quiet Mounting Back Plate had issues with ASUS P8Z77-V PRO. Solder points on the back of the board prevent use of 1 adhesive strip and can see this being issue with other boards. Plastic back piece had to flex also due to solder points. Overall Great All In One Water cooling unit might change stock fan with Noctua A14.
Pros: Quiet, Pretty Good Cooling, Compatible with Corsair 550D, $79.99 Sale Price
Summary: Decided that I would retire my BeQuiet DarkRock2 cooler and get myself a closed loop instead. I have a Fractal R4 (awesome) and do a bit of OC'ing but mainly just wanted to remove the big dominating air-cooler from my rig and as I have just bought a window panel and wanted the internals to look totally groovy, therefore decided on a rear push pull configeration, hence the H90. Retired two of my Fractal fans and bought two Noctua 140mm.
Summary: Min första vattenkylning och kan bara säga varför har jag inte hakat på detta förut. 29-34c idle och 50-55c vid fulload i syntetiskt stress test program och tyst som attan. Mycket nöjd, blev lite skrämd i början då pumpen förde väsen men det var pumpen som pumpade runt vattnet första gången. Silent gamer system Intel Core i7-4770K i ett underbart chassi Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 och moderkortet MSI Z87-G45 GAMING. Notera att jag kör allt silent.
