Summary: I have yet to use my H100i due to it did not fit my tower with out getting in way of the BOARD,RAM,and CPU. Ordered the Corsair Carbide Air 540 for it and I know this will work great as to I had the H80 and it cooled temps 40+degrees.
Summary: When I say cool, I mean it. This thing keeps my FX-9590 colder than the rest of my motherboard. However, it doesn't provide any headroom for overclocking the 9590, buts that's overkill. I recommend downloading the Corsair Link software to create profiles to control fan speeds when gaming heavily.
Summary: Got this cooler to replace a failing single 120mm water cooler. The highest temps I've seen with this cooler is 57C. That's benchmarking using XTU with the cpu OCed to 4.3Ghz. The old cooler would get to about 67C doing the same thing. The fans aren't too bad if you keep them at low rpms, but can be loud if you crank them up. I haven't seen any point in having the fans go any higher than 1200 rpms, which is pretty quiet.
Summary: Ok, I have an older AMD quad core Phenom XII 3.2GHZ running on an ASUS motherboard. There is no overclocking being done other than all 4 cores are active at all times (a setting on the motherboard). With my previous Thermaltake Typhoon Heatsink I was seeing idle temps in the 15C-20C range and 30C under load. I know that's not bad but I went ahead and purchased this cooler along with the Corsair 400R case. Oh, my, word!
Summary: Running on a 5820k Hasewell overclocked to 4.3ghz, still seems like overkill, to the touch the air coming out feels like room tempature, which is great. My only grip is having to sacrafice a usb port on my board.
