Poor Corsair link location.
6 days ago
Summary: It cools very well the only issues I've had thus far is that the AMD mounting bracket makes it impossible to plug in the Corsair link cable unless you put the pump on lopsided which I refuse to do for looks.
Packaging was great, I am still buying parts for my new ...

Summary: Packaging was great , I am still buying parts for my new build ,so don't know bout how good it will cool ,did buy 2 more fans with it to set up in push pull.I do trust the corsair name and reputation.
Summary: Be prepared to replace the loud stock fans that come with this Cooler. I replaced them with 2 each Corsair Air Series AF120 CO-9050015-RLED 120mm Red LED Quiet Edition High Airflow Fan. Made a huge difference in the fan noise emission.
Pros: Easy Installation, dropped CPU temps 6c versus Cooler Master 212 EVO that was installed.
Cons: Stock fans sound like a Kirby Vacuum Cleaner has been installed in the case
Pros: The Corsair H100i is a great closed loop cooler. Preforms excellent with my Intel 2700k @ 4.6ghz, 1.28volts. Max temp in Prime 95 blend 64c idle 28c. Install was a breeze.
Cons: The reason I give 4 stars is the terrible corsair link software. Works sometimes other times it keeps kicking out the usb controller forcing fans to ramp up and down and really annoying if your watching a movie or trying to sleep.
Great Product, but beware of loose backplate issue plaguing users!

Summary: Before installing, I recommend watching "H100i Backplate Fix" on YouTube (Uploaded by bleedinsixcolours) just to get a better overview of this problem.
Pros: -Keeps my i7-4790k @ 60-75 Celsius on %100 load (34-45 with %10-20 load) -Corsair link software is great and easy to use
Cons: There's one BIG problem with this product: The backplate. Even when the backplate was installed properly, I was getting temps of upward 90 Celsius on %100 load! After some googling I found that on some mobos the backplate doesn't fit tightly enough and requires washers to create a more tight conn...
Summary: Pros: East to install Sealed unit All the extra fans DONT connect to the mainboard and use up my case fan slots Cons: Instructions are terrible. Worst i have ever seen. I had to YouTube where to put the "Y" cables that connect to the base. Instructions simply say "Use the Y cables provided".
Summary: This product is very quiet if you use the Corsair link software to control fan and pump speed. It can sound like a jet engine if not. Honestly I had to double check that I installed the fans correctly the first time I turned on my system in quiet mode; it's that quiet.
Pros: Simple and easy to install. The software makes it easy to monitor your system and set values that triggers responses if your cpu is running to hot.. ( set all fans to 100%, Email response, LED triggers, ect.) You can also save profiles. For example if you're just surfing or non intensive usage no...
Cons: For some reason my PC boots into the LED flashing four different colors. I have it set to either white or read only. I have to open and change profiles for it to stick. Nit picky but is annoying. That's the reason for only giving 4 eggs. Actual hardware is flawlelss
