Summary: Unit was DOA. Doesn't include the ability to connect more fans to do push/pull. I'm assuming the pump motor was defective or seized, computer would immediately power off whenever I tried to connect the USB cable. I ended up using the fans with the previous H100i model so I didn't return it.
Pros: I was wishfully hoping this variation of the H100i would be compatible with their 250D case and Asus Maximus VII Impact motherboard but unfortunately, due to Corsair's untested quality and usability department, fittage is off by 1-2mm. Seriously disappointed in Corsair. I always like upgrading to...
Summary: I tried to install it in a Corsair Graphite 230T Mid casing but the memory DIMMS get in the way. On the Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3P AM3+ motherboard the memory slots are too far to the left to clear the space necessary. Only a cooler with 1 fan would fit.
Fan header broke off during install! Scary indicator of quality...

Summary: Just received this closed-loop liquid cooling system this afternoon to use in my new gaming rig. Got everything installed, and went to go plug the Y-connector for the fans into the top of the unit.
pump failed within two months, corsair link shows pump working fine. don't trust your expensive computer to this junk.

Summary: a few months ago, as i was deciding what kind of specs i wanted in my new system, i got around to deciding if i'd be building my own water cooling loop as i'd done on my previous two systems, or purchasing a product like the h100i.
Summary: I needed this for my cpu, what i got was a bag full of liquid and a bubbling rubber hose that was leaking when i open it. My God the rumor was true that it leaks and to my horror i wasnt gonna install this above my motherboard with the gear i got. Sorry Corsair but u did me wrong again.
Summary: putting new system together unit just sitting on the table. The hose blew off the the cpu cooler side! The coolant went every where. 12 feet to my right, hitting my daughter in another room, the ceiling took some, and 10 feet to my left also got wet. Not to mention my new biuld also received a bath!
Summary: Luckily I had sense enough to jump right in to my CPU temp. Temperature kept rising, up.. up... up. checked wiring, replace sata cable, changed ports on PSU, changed thermal paste, checked fit with CPU, USB connector, nope dead. Frustrating after a painstaking install.
Summary: Packaging for this unit was in great shape, no damage and the unit was well packed. There is a plastic covering the copper block upon opening. I took this off to find coolant around the plastic edges. The pump housing is attached to the heatsink by 8 - 10 screws.
