Summary: This dropped the temps of my CPU, and made the whole system more quiet. The stock air cooler was pretty noisy when fan RPMs started to rise. This unit uses two power connectors. One 3pin for the pump, and one 4pin for the fan. This is my first liquid cooling install.
Pros: Dropped temps on the CPU as advertised.
Cons: Just FYI, the install can be time consuming. My case required me to pull the whole motherboard out to get at two of the stock CPU cooler mounting screws. Other than that the build was not difficult.
Pros: -Dropped idle temp from 46c to 29c -Dropped temp in Call of Duty Black Ops 3 from 68c to 40c -This thing is the bomb -Easy to install, Fit my Thermaltake case, no problem. -Installed on Intel i7 5930K
Cons: -Pre-Installed Thermal paste is a complete waste of time for socket 2011. Wipe it off and put on some good stuff.
Pros: I am cooling a Intel Core i7 5820k @ 4.2ghz and I'm getting some crazy temps with it. Idle is ~23c-25c and ~35c-36c on load. In my case, the manual said with LGA 2011v3 does not need a backplate. I was able to just screw on the CPU Block/Pump with 0 issues and mount the Radiator with 0 issues (us...
Pros: I was torn between this and a H110. At the time, the 2 products were with in $10 of each other. I went with the H90 b/c I share the room with my girl friend, and I was afraid a cooling system as big as the H110 would sound like a vacuum. I am very happy with my H90. I ran furmarks for 20 minutes ...
Cons: None. I would buy this again in a heartbeat.
Summary: I was really concerned with getting a nice 140 mm liquid cooler, and whether it would be enough for my i7. It is awesome and everything I expected!
Pros: It keeps my CPU extremely cool. Maxes out at below 49 C with a horrendous load. (5930k) It was a pretty easy install when following online tutorials. It looks really awesome. Fit perfectly with my Cooler Master Stryker case.
Cons: Once you pulled it out of the package its easy to bump it into something and smear the thermal paste a little. This is really not a con haha.
Summary: I mounted the radiator on the rear of the case and oriented the fan to intake air. I'm not sure why anyone would mount the radiator in an exhaust configuration. Passing hot air over the radiator coils, from inside the case, seems counterproductive to me.
Pros: Installation was super easy, although I was hoping I didn't have to pull the motherboard out. Temps are noticeably lower even before the thermal paste has broken in. It's quiet, indeed, but the biggest pro for me is the amount of space it saves in the case(I previously had an Arctic Freezer Pro, ...
Cons: No complaints yet. Corsair puts out great products.
Summary: Having mounted in the front is not great. I am blocking air flow going into the case along with the heat from the radiator being pumped into the case. I have a second front fan that helps out and the side fans.
Pros: My idle temp has dropped from 113F to 98F. Not as cool as some reviews, but my computer is enclose in my desk without much air around it and is the main reason I went water cool. Even after playing a game for a hour my temp was only 112F which is still lower then my idle temp use to be. It's cool...
Cons: Had to modify my Corsair 300R case to fit. I have 6 140mm mounts and it would not work on any of them. 2 on the side was out right away. 2 on the top, one block by the Blue ray drive and the other by the 8 pin ATX power on the motherboard. The only place left was 2 on the front. The screw holes w...
