Beast of a cooling solution.

Anonymous, Newegg
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: I got it mounted as a front intake on a Define R5 and I changed the stock fan with a Noctua NF-A14 PWM. The results above speak for themselves.
  • Pros: Reading this I suppose you are looking to see if this is any good. If you are like me and believe only results then read below mine. Cooling a 4690k @ 3.5Ghz 25-28 C on all cores when idle 45-49 C on all cores at 100% load
  • Cons: Nothing.

Excellent Cooler

Kevin J., Newegg
2 July 2015
  • Summary: Can't really go wrong, here. Good product.
  • Pros: Absolutely no complaints about this. Solid construction, easy to install. I haven't seen my temps hit 35C yet, even in newer video games, on an i7-4771. Used AS Ceramique - so not even high end thermal paste and things are running pretty cool. The fan is quiet, a big draw of the 140mm size. Defin...
  • Cons: Uh... cheap pre-applied thermal paste that comes on every cooler, stock or aftermarket? I mean, if you've got enough savvy to be buying a good aftermarket cooler like this, you're probably not using stock paste anyway.

Corsair H90

Timothy N., Newegg
27 June 2015
  • Summary: My first AIO water cooler.
  • Pros: Got this AIO water cooler in the mail today. Package showed up on time and there were no signs of damage. As expected of Newegg. Installation was not too complicated to follow but I wish there were more mounting screws available for those who wish to run this in a push-pull configuration. With th...
  • Cons: None so far. Will update in the near future.

Cheap, durable, effective

Karl M., Newegg
16 June 2015
  • Summary: Requires radiator to be cleaned every few months for optimal temps, which is nothing new and is to be expected for any cooler.
  • Pros: No nonsense simple installation, keeps my overclocked AMD FX8350 at 40 degrees Celsius under load and at 29 degrees when idle.
  • Cons: None

Amazing

Lauren P., Newegg
2 May 2015
  • Summary: This thing is big! I have a Rosewill thor 2 case and it just fits nicely. Make sure you have a large case. Also keep in mind it is recommended you use the fan as an intake for the radiator. That means switching another fan to an exhaust.
  • Pros: COLD as ICE. I went from average temps while running some games around 75c to topping out at 41c. I used to idle at 35c now i idle at 22c. That is amazing. Installation instructions are easy enough to follow.
  • Cons: The silver paste comes pre-applied. The problem is a loose plastic cover protects it. When i opened the box it was already off and a small section of the thermal paste had been rubbed off already. I fixed it but they should make a cover that snaps on to it to protect it until you are ready to ins...

Works as advertized

Justin W., Newegg
23 April 2015
  • Summary: Very pleased with this purchase.
  • Pros: Great product so far, this is my first water cooler and I'm running my i5-4970k @ 4.8GHz and so far haven't exceeded 40 Degrees C. Just be sure you have good airflow through the radiator. Installation was very easy despite some of the reviews left here.
  • Cons: None so far.

Great Cooler

clifton m., Newegg
31 March 2015
  • Summary: Would be nice if it came in colors other than flat black.Would also be nice if it came with a second set of screws tapped for the holes in the fan, so that you could install a second 140mm fan in a push/pull setup.
  • Pros: Easiest Cooler I've ever installed. literally took it out of the box and in ten minutes it was installed and working. I will say that i put it on 2011-3 intel board which meant i was not required to install the included backplate as there is already one on boards made for this chipset. It looks g...
  • Cons: Have not seen any yet.

Great Cooler for i7

Josh L., Newegg
27 March 2015
  • Summary: I replaced the stock fan with a XIGMATEK FCB and I'm running the fan at 30% speed while the processor idles. It makes my system very quiet. I used arctic silver 5 with the cleaning kit. I removed the other fans in my case except the front intake.
  • Pros: One of the easier coolers to install. My temps went from 32C idle to 25C idle, and from 70C to 55C with prime95. I'd say that is a success.
  • Cons: I don't like the factory thermal compound. The instructions where a little ambiguous.
