Excerpt: This cooler has been working great for me so far. It's keeping my i7-5930K cool without any issues, it's also very quiet. The only issue i had with it was that some of the screws that were included in the kit were a little rusty. Not sure why, but i simply cleaned them up and they worked fine.
Summary: I've tried other AIO radiator solutions and this one is definitely the best so far. The mounting hardware is solid and makes installation pretty straightforward. The tubes are stiff, which is a good thing because allowing too much bend means risking creasing, cracking, and leaking.
Summary: -The motherboard that I installed this CPU cooler on is an ASUS Z77 Sabertooth, the case is a Corsair 650D, and the memory is Corsair Vengeance 2x 8 GB -My rig has an i7-3770k which was idling ~60-70C with the stock Intel cooler.
Pros: -This product is one of the top rated CPU coolers on the market – it cut my CPU temps in half -Liquid cooled setup with minimal installation problems – see cons -Software (Corsair Link) has a graphical display where you can control LEDs, arrange different computer components, such as GPUs, CPUs, ...
Cons: -The ‘one size fits all’ mounting brackets became a bit of a nightmare for me during installation. I adjusted the screw threadings in the mounting bracket to fit the back of my ATX motherboard. However, when I used the provided screw-adapters to tighten the mounting bracket to the motherboard, I ...
Summary: All in all, as a relative newb to all this, it is a good CPU cooler and is quite quiet.
Pros: I have my CPU overclocked to 4.1Ghz, at full load it stays around 58 - 61 degrees. It is alot quieter than some reviews have claimed but this is my first AIO liquid cooler so I have no comparison. I do like the Corsair Link.
Cons: As a relative rookie when it comes to building and/or upgrading computer components (although it has recently become an obsession and I don't ever want to stop) the installation guide was not terrible but could have mentioned that when screwing in the stand offs, the back plate will be loose. I h...
Summary: I just hope the cable could be different, so that I don't have to have the Corsair emblem flipped or rotated.
Pros: + Looks awesome. + Performs better than my custom loop and I had a bigger pump and radiator on that in comparison. steady around 33C on heavy use. + Quiet. + Glows!
Cons: - The USB attachment port is poorly positioned. Well, not really, the wire is the problem. The connector is on a 90° angle. So depending on where you allow the port to be positioned (with the mounting bracket - I'm using AMD) the mircoUSB end wont be able to connect with the mounting bracket nut ...
Excerpt: Package comes with 2 fan, intel and amd brackets, and radiator for those who are worried. Does not come with AMD backplate, but you can use your old blackplate instead. Pro: Works right out the box if done correctly. OK manual for installation for both intel and amd.

Summary: I love it keeps my i7 4770k very cool however do not install this you're CPU connection on ur mobo. You're mobo would read an error and will not boot properly what i had to do was hook the fan pin to my chassis fan pin on my mobo. Or just run it straight from you're power supply.
Summary: Summary: works very well but has a couple of small issues. I have an AMD 8120 that runs hot; the stock fan was not working well. I have never tried a liquid cooling system and thought it would be a worthwhile experiment.
